    Jeremiah 29:11

    (Brenton) for thy fatherless one to be left to live, but I shall live, and the widows trust in me.

    (Darby) For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith Jehovah, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you in your latter end a hope.

    (DRB) For I know the thoughts that I think towards you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of affliction, to give you an end and patience.

    (GNB) I alone know the plans I have for you, plans to bring you prosperity and not disaster, plans to bring about the future you hope for.

    (ISV) For I know the plans that I have for you,' declares the LORD, 'plans for well-being, and not for calamity, in order to give you a future and a hope.

    (KJV) For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

    (MKJV) For I know the purposes which I am purposing for you, says Jehovah; purposes of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.

    (RV) For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you hope in your latter end.

    (WEB) For I know the thoughts that I think toward you,” says Yahweh, “thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you hope and a future. Message to the Jews of the first captivity. Action against false prophets. Destruction foretold. As long as we have God’s sure Word before us, it is our own fault if we be deceived, for by it we may be undeceived. If vengeance shall be taken on those who rebel against God’s Word, much more on those who teach rebellion by their destructive doctrines.

    Jeremiah 29:11

    "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

    For me it means that God saves me from my sin, giving me spiritual prosperity and hope leading to eternal life. It definitely does encourage me to seek first God's Kingdom and Righteousness. God bless.

    I like the King James Version. It pits peace and evil against each other, rather than good and evil. It also reminds me that God has a plan for His expected end (expectation) for my life.

    And he said 'I prophesy for you wisdom of peace and not evil things to give you such (an end)'. I translated it for you all by myself!

      Tom thank you I know what it means and have read all the translations.
