Zedekiah’s Request Denied

21[This is] the word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD when King Zedekiah sent Pashhur son of Malchijah and the priest Zephaniah son of Maaseiah to Jeremiah, asking,H1697H3414H3068H4428H6667H7971H6583H1121H4441H6846H1121H4641H3548H559 2"Ask the LORD on our behalf, since Nebuchadnezzarking of Babylon is making war against us. Perhaps the LORD will perform for us something like all His [past] wonderful works so that [Nebuchadnezzar] will withdraw from us."H1875H3068H1157H5019H4428H894H3898H3068H6213H6381H5927 3But Jeremiah answered, "This is what you are to say to Zedekiah:H559H3414H559H6667 4'This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: I will repel the weapons of war in your hands, those you are using to fight the king of Babylon and the Chaldeans who are besieging you outside the wall, and I will bring them into the center of this city.H559H3068H430H3478H5437H3627H4421H3027H3898H4428H894H3778H6696H2351H2346H622H8432H5892 5I will fight against you with an outstretched hand and a mighty arm, with anger, rage, and great wrath.H3898H5186H3027H2389H2220H639H2534H1419H7110 6I will strike the residents of this city, both man and beast. They will die in a great plague.H5221H3427H5892H120H929H4191H1419H1698 7Afterwards'"— [this is] the LORD's declaration— "'King Zedekiah of Judah, his officers, and the people— those in this city who survive the plague, the sword, and the famine— I will hand over to King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon, to their enemies, yes, to those who want to take their lives. He will put them to the sword; he won't spare them or show pity or compassion.'H310H5002H3068H5414H6667H4428H3063H5650H5971H7604H5892H1698H2719H7458H3027H5019H4428H894H3027H341H3027H1245H5315H5221H6310H2719H2347H2550H7355 8"But you must say to this people, 'This is what the LORD says: Look, I am presenting to you the way of life and the way of death.H5971H559H559H3068H5414H6440H1870H2416H1870H4194 9Whoever stays in this city will die by the sword, famine, and plague, but whoever goes out and surrenders to the Chaldeans who are besieging you will live and will retain his life like the spoils [of war].H3427H5892H4191H2719H7458H1698H3318H5307H3778H6696H2421H2421H5315H7998 10For I have turned against this city to [bring] disaster and not good""— [this is] the LORD's declaration. "'It will be handed over to the king of Babylon, who will burn it down.'H7760H6440H5892H7451H2896H5002H3068H5414H3027H4428H894H8313H784 11"And to the house of the king of Judah [say this]: 'Hear the word of the LORD!H1004H4428H3063H8085H1697H3068 12House of David, this is what the LORD says: Administer justice every morning, and rescue the victim of robbery from the hand of his oppressor, or My anger will flare up like fire and burn unquenchably because of their evil deeds.H1004H1732H559H3068H1777H4941H1242H5337H1497H3027H6231H2534H3318H784H1197H3518H6440H7455H4611 13Beware! I am against you, you who sit above the valley, [you atop] the rocky plateau— [this is] the LORD's declaration— you who say: Who can come down against us? Who can enter our hiding places?H3427H6010H6697H4334H5002H3068H559H5181H935H4585 14I will punish you according to what you have done— [this is] the LORD's declaration. I will kindle a fire in its forest that will consume everything around it.'"H6485H6529H4611H5002H3068H3341H784H3293H398H5439
