This verse is still the same. If Jehovah knew that free will would be abused, then the only way fix the problem is to let mankind rule themselves until utter destruction. Experience EVERY ill possible. This is the consensus of why Jehovah permits all the evil in the world. It's a learning experience for us. That said, the only way to reverse the effects of sin and death would be through a ransom. That was Jesus "the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world."Revelation 13:8 "And all those who dwell on the earth will worship it. From the founding of the world, not one of their names has been written in the scroll of life of the Lamb who was slaughtered."
I'd be careful which version of the Bible you chose here. The KJV makes it sound like Jehovah knew he would sacrifice Jesus before he created Earth, but that's not the case.
Let's look at 1 Peter 1:19-20 - "but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without defect or blemish. He was chosen before the foundation of the world but was revealed at the end of the times for you." (Holman)
