Jeremiah’s Message for Zedekiah

21THE WORD which came to Jeremiah from the Lord when King Zedekiah sent to him Pashhur son of Malchiah, and Zephaniah the priest, the son of Maaseiah, saying,H1697H3414H3068H4428H6667H7971H6583H1121H4441H6846H1121H4641H3548H559 2Inquire, I pray you, of the Lord for us, for Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon is making war against us. Perhaps the Lord will deal with us according to all His wonderful works, forcing him to withdraw from us.H1875H3068H1157H5019H4428H894H3898H3068H6213H6381H5927 3Then said Jeremiah to them, Say this to Zedekiah:H559H3414H559H6667 4Thus says the Lord, the God of Israel: Behold, I will turn back {and} dull the edge of the weapons of war that are in your hands, with which you fight against the king of Babylon and the Chaldeans who are besieging you outside the walls; and I will bring them into the midst of this city [Jerusalem].H559H3068H430H3478H5437H3627H4421H3027H3898H4428H894H3778H6696H2351H2346H622H8432H5892 5And I Myself will fight against you with an outstretched hand and with a strong arm in anger, in fury, and in great indignation {and} wrath.H3898H5186H3027H2389H2220H639H2534H1419H7110 6And I will smite the inhabitants of this city, both man and beast; they will die of a great pestilence.H5221H3427H5892H120H929H4191H1419H1698 7And afterward, says the Lord, I will deliver Zedekiah king of Judah and his servants and the people in this city who survive the pestilence, the sword, and the famine, into the hand of Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon and into the hands of their enemies, into the hands of those who seek their lives. And he will smite them with the edge of the sword; he will not spare them nor have pity or mercy {and} compassion upon them.H310H5002H3068H5414H6667H4428H3063H5650H5971H7604H5892H1698H2719H7458H3027H5019H4428H894H3027H341H3027H1245H5315H5221H6310H2719H2347H2550H7355 8And to this people you [Jeremiah] shall say, Thus says the Lord: Behold, I set before you the way of life and the way of death.H5971H559H559H3068H5414H6440H1870H2416H1870H4194 9He who remains in this city [Jerusalem] shall die by the sword and by famine and by pestilence. But he who goes out and passes over to the Chaldeans who besiege you, he shall live, and his life shall be to him his only booty [as a prize of war].H3427H5892H4191H2719H7458H1698H3318H5307H3778H6696H2421H2421H5315H7998 10For I have set My face against this city for evil and not for good, says the Lord. It shall be given into the hand of the king of Babylon, and he shall burn it with fire.H7760H6440H5892H7451H2896H5002H3068H5414H3027H4428H894H8313H784 11And concerning the royal house of the king of Judah, hear the word of the Lord:H1004H4428H3063H8085H1697H3068 12O house of David, thus says the Lord: Execute justice in the morning, and deliver from the hand of the oppressor him who has been robbed, lest My wrath go forth like fire and burn so that none can quench it--because of the evil of your doings.H1004H1732H559H3068H1777H4941H1242H5337H1497H3027H6231H2534H3318H784H1197H3518H6440H7455H4611 13Behold, I am against you, O inhabitant of the valley, O rock of the plain, says the Lord--you who say, Who shall come down against us? Or, Who shall enter into our dwelling places?H3427H6010H6697H4334H5002H3068H559H5181H935H4585 14And I will punish you according to the fruit of your doings, says the Lord. I will kindle a fire in your forest, and it will devour all that is round about you.H6485H6529H4611H5002H3068H3341H784H3293H398H5439
