Jeremiah 37

And king
<04428>
Zedekiah
<06667>
the son
<01121>
of Josiah
<02977>
reigned
<04427> (8799)
instead of Coniah
<03659>
the son
<01121>
of Jehoiakim
<03079>_,
whom Nebuchadrezzar
<05019>
king
<04428>
of Babylon
<0894>
made king
<04427> (8689)
in the land
<0776>
of Judah
<03063>_.
But neither he, nor his servants
<05650>_,
nor the people
<05971>
of the land
<0776>_,
did hearken
<08085> (8804)
unto the words
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
which he spake
<01696> (8765)
by
<03027>
the prophet
<05030>
Jeremiah
<03414>_.
{by...: Heb. by the hand of the prophet}
And Zedekiah
<06667>
the king
<04428>
sent
<07971> (8799)
Jehucal
<03081>
the son
<01121>
of Shelemiah
<08018>
and Zephaniah
<06846>
the son
<01121>
of Maaseiah
<04641>
the priest
<03548>
to the prophet
<05030>
Jeremiah
<03414>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Pray
<06419> (8690)
now unto the LORD
<03068>
our God
<0430>
for us.
Now Jeremiah
<03414>
came in
<0935> (8804)
and went out
<03318> (8802)
among
<08432>
the people
<05971>_:
for they had not put
<05414> (8804)
him into prison
<01004> <03628>_.
Then Pharaoh's
<06547>
army
<02428>
was come forth
<03318> (8804)
out of Egypt
<04714>_:
and when the Chaldeans
<03778>
that besieged
<06696> (8802)
Jerusalem
<03389>
heard
<08085> (8799)
tidings
<08088>
of them, they departed
<05927> (8735)
from Jerusalem
<03389>_.
Then came the word
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>
unto the prophet
<05030>
Jeremiah
<03414>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_,
the God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>_;
Thus shall ye say
<0559> (8799)
to the king
<04428>
of Judah
<03063>_,
that sent
<07971> (8802)
you unto me to enquire
<01875> (8800)
of me; Behold, Pharaoh's
<06547>
army
<02428>_,
which is come forth
<03318> (8802)
to help
<05833>
you, shall return
<07725> (8804)
to Egypt
<04714>
into their own land
<0776>_.
And the Chaldeans
<03778>
shall come again
<07725> (8804)_,
and fight
<03898> (8738)
against this city
<05892>_,
and take
<03920> (8804)
it, and burn
<08313> (8804)
it with fire
<0784>_.
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_;
Deceive
<05377> (8686)
not yourselves
<05315>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
The Chaldeans
<03778>
shall surely
<01980> (8800)
depart
<03212> (8799)
from us: for they shall not depart
<03212> (8799)_.
{yourselves: Heb. your souls}
For though ye had smitten
<05221> (8689)
the whole army
<02428>
of the Chaldeans
<03778>
that fight
<03898> (8737)
against you, and there remained
<07604> (8738)
[but] wounded
<01856> (8794)
men
<0582>
among them, [yet] should they rise up
<06965> (8799)
every man
<0376>
in his tent
<0168>_,
and burn
<08313> (8804)
this city
<05892>
with fire
<0784>_.
{wounded: Heb. thrust through}
And it came to pass, that when the army
<02428>
of the Chaldeans
<03778>
was broken up
<05927> (8736)
from Jerusalem
<03389>
for fear
<06440>
of Pharaoh's
<06547>
army
<02428>_,
{broken...: Heb. made to ascend}
Then Jeremiah
<03414>
went forth
<03318> (8799)
out of Jerusalem
<03389>
to go
<03212> (8800)
into the land
<0776>
of Benjamin
<01144>_,
to separate
<02505> (8687)
himself thence in the midst
<08432>
of the people
<05971>_.
{separate...: or, to slip away from thence in the midst of the people}
And when he was in the gate
<08179>
of Benjamin
<01144>_,
a captain
<01167>
of the ward
<06488>
[was] there, whose name
<08034>
[was] Irijah
<03376>_,
the son
<01121>
of Shelemiah
<08018>_,
the son
<01121>
of Hananiah
<02608>_;
and he took
<08610> (8799)
Jeremiah
<03414>
the prophet
<05030>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Thou fallest away
<05307> (8802)
to the Chaldeans
<03778>_.
Then said
<0559> (8799)
Jeremiah
<03414>_,
[It is] false
<08267>_;
I fall not away
<05307> (8802)
to the Chaldeans
<03778>_.
But he hearkened
<08085> (8804)
not to him: so Irijah
<03376>
took
<08610> (8799)
Jeremiah
<03414>_,
and brought
<0935> (8686)
him to the princes
<08269>_.
{false: Heb. falsehood, or, a lie}
Wherefore the princes
<08269>
were wroth
<07107> (8799)
with Jeremiah
<03414>_,
and smote
<05221> (8689)
him, and put
<05414> (8804)
him in prison
<0612>
in the house
<01004>
of Jonathan
<03083>
the scribe
<05608> (8802)_:
for they had made
<06213> (8804)
that the prison
<03608>_.
When Jeremiah
<03414>
was entered
<0935> (8804)
into the dungeon
<01004> <0953>_,
and into the cabins
<02588>_,
and Jeremiah
<03414>
had remained
<03427> (8799)
there many
<07227>
days
<03117>_;
{cabins: or, cells}
Then Zedekiah
<06667>
the king
<04428>
sent
<07971> (8799)_,
and took him out
<03947> (8799)_:
and the king
<04428>
asked
<07592> (8799)
him secretly
<05643>
in his house
<01004>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Is there [any] word
<01697>
from the LORD
<03068>_?
And Jeremiah
<03414>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
There is
<03426>_:
for, said
<0559> (8799)
he, thou shalt be delivered
<05414> (8735)
into the hand
<03027>
of the king
<04428>
of Babylon
<0894>_.
Moreover Jeremiah
<03414>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto king
<04428>
Zedekiah
<06667>_,
What have I offended
<02398> (8804)
against thee, or against thy servants
<05650>_,
or against this people
<05971>_,
that ye have put
<05414> (8804)
me in prison
<01004> <03608>_?
Where [are] now
<0346>
your prophets
<05030>
which prophesied
<05012> (8738)
unto you, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
The king
<04428>
of Babylon
<0894>
shall not come
<0935> (8799)
against you, nor against this land
<0776>_?
Therefore hear
<08085> (8798)
now, I pray thee, O my lord
<0113>
the king
<04428>_:
let my supplication
<08467>_,
I pray thee, be accepted
<05307> (8799)
before
<06440>
thee; that thou cause me not to return
<07725> (8686)
to the house
<01004>
of Jonathan
<03083>
the scribe
<05608> (8802)_,
lest I die
<04191> (8799)
there. {let...: Heb. let my supplication fall}
Then Zedekiah
<06667>
the king
<04428>
commanded
<06680> (8762)
that they should commit
<06485> (8686)
Jeremiah
<03414>
into the court
<02691>
of the prison
<04307>_,
and that they should give
<05414> (8800)
him daily
<03117>
a piece
<03603>
of bread
<03899>
out of the bakers
<0644> (8802)_'
street
<02351>_,
until all the bread
<03899>
in the city
<05892>
were spent
<08552> (8800)_.
Thus Jeremiah
<03414>
remained
<03427> (8799)
in the court
<02691>
of the prison
<04307>_.
