King James Version

Zedekiah’s Vain Hope

37And king Zedekiah the son of Josiah reigned instead of Coniah the son of Jehoiakim, whom Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon made king in the land of Judah.H4428H6667H1121H2977H4427H3659H1121H3079H5019H4428H894H4427H776H3063 2But neither he, nor his servants, nor the people of the land, did hearken unto the words of the LORD, which he spake by the prophet Jeremiah.H5650H5971H776H8085H1697H3068H1696H3027H5030H3414 3And Zedekiah the king sent Jehucal the son of Shelemiah and Zephaniah the son of Maaseiah the priest to the prophet Jeremiah, saying, Pray now unto the LORD our God for us.H6667H4428H7971H3081H1121H8018H6846H1121H4641H3548H5030H3414H559H6419H3068H430 4Now Jeremiah came in and went out among the people: for they had not put him into prison.H3414H935H3318H8432H5971H5414H1004H3628 5Then Pharaoh's army was come forth out of Egypt: and when the Chaldeans that besieged Jerusalem heard tidings of them, they departed from Jerusalem.H6547H2428H3318H4714H3778H6696H3389H8085H8088H5927H3389 6Then came the word of the LORD unto the prophet Jeremiah saying,H1697H3068H5030H3414H559 7Thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel; Thus shall ye say to the king of Judah, that sent you unto me to enquire of me; Behold, Pharaoh's army, which is come forth to help you, shall return to Egypt into their own land.H559H3068H430H3478H559H4428H3063H7971H1875H6547H2428H3318H5833H7725H4714H776 8And the Chaldeans shall come again, and fight against this city, and take it, and burn it with fire.H3778H7725H3898H5892H3920H8313H784 9Thus saith the LORD; Deceive not yourselves, saying, The Chaldeans shall surely depart from us: for they shall not depart.H559H3068H5377H5315H559H3778H1980H3212H3212 10For though ye had smitten the whole army of the Chaldeans that fight against you, and there remained but wounded men among them, yet should they rise up every man in his tent, and burn this city with fire.H5221H2428H3778H3898H7604H1856H582H6965H376H168H8313H5892H784

Jeremiah Imprisoned

11And it came to pass, that when the army of the Chaldeans was broken up from Jerusalem for fear of Pharaoh's army,H2428H3778H5927H3389H6440H6547H2428 12Then Jeremiah went forth out of Jerusalem to go into the land of Benjamin, to separate himself thence in the midst of the people.H3414H3318H3389H3212H776H1144H2505H8432H5971 13And when he was in the gate of Benjamin, a captain of the ward was there, whose name was Irijah, the son of Shelemiah, the son of Hananiah; and he took Jeremiah the prophet, saying, Thou fallest away to the Chaldeans.H8179H1144H1167H6488H8034H3376H1121H8018H1121H2608H8610H3414H5030H559H5307H3778 14Then said Jeremiah, It is false; I fall not away to the Chaldeans. But he hearkened not to him: so Irijah took Jeremiah, and brought him to the princes.H559H3414H8267H5307H3778H8085H3376H8610H3414H935H8269 15Wherefore the princes were wroth with Jeremiah, and smote him, and put him in prison in the house of Jonathan the scribe: for they had made that the prison.H8269H7107H3414H5221H5414H612H1004H3083H5608H6213H3608 16When Jeremiah was entered into the dungeon, and into the cabins, and Jeremiah had remained there many days;H3414H935H1004H953H2588H3414H3427H7227H3117 17Then Zedekiah the king sent, and took him out: and the king asked him secretly in his house, and said, Is there any word from the LORD? And Jeremiah said, There is: for, said he, thou shalt be delivered into the hand of the king of Babylon.H6667H4428H7971H3947H4428H7592H5643H1004H559H1697H3068H3414H559H3426H559H5414H3027H4428H894 18Moreover Jeremiah said unto king Zedekiah, What have I offended against thee, or against thy servants, or against this people, that ye have put me in prison?H3414H559H4428H6667H2398H5650H5971H5414H1004H3608 19Where are now your prophets which prophesied unto you, saying, The king of Babylon shall not come against you, nor against this land?H346H5030H5012H559H4428H894H935H776 20Therefore hear now, I pray thee, O my lord the king: let my supplication, I pray thee, be accepted before thee; that thou cause me not to return to the house of Jonathan the scribe, lest I die there.H8085H113H4428H8467H5307H6440H7725H1004H3083H5608H4191 21Then Zedekiah the king commanded that they should commit Jeremiah into the court of the prison, and that they should give him daily a piece of bread out of the bakers' street, until all the bread in the city were spent. Thus Jeremiah remained in the court of the prison.H6667H4428H6680H6485H3414H2691H4307H5414H3117H3603H3899H644H2351H3899H5892H8552H3414H3427H2691H4307
