1 tn Heb “oracle of the Lord.”

2 tn Heb “I have set my face against this city for evil [i.e., disaster] and not for good [i.e., well-being].” For the use of the idiom “set one’s face against/toward” see, e.g., usage in 1 Kgs 2:15; 2 Kgs 2:17; Jer 42:15, 17 and note the interesting interplay of usage in Jer 44:11-12.

3 tn Heb “he will burn it with fire.”

4 tn Heb “Thus says the Lord.” However, the speech has already been introduced as first person. So the first person style has been retained for smoother narrative style.

5 tn Heb “Behold, I will give this city into the hand of…”

6 tn Heb “The Chaldeans.” See the study note on 21:4 for further explanation.

7 tn Heb “told him”; the referent (Jeremiah) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

8 tn Heb “told him”; the referent (Jeremiah) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

9 tn Heb 34:1 “The word which came to Jeremiah from the Lord…saying, ‘Thus says the Lord God of Israel, “Go and speak to Zedekiah king of Judah and say to him, ‘Thus says the Lord, “I am going to….”’”’” The translation has tried to avoid some of the confusion that is created by embedding quotations within quotations by using indirect quotation in some instances; the conceptualization is the same but the style is simpler.

10 tn Heb “the Chaldeans.” See the study note on 21:4 for the rendering “Babylonian.” The word “forces” is supplied in the translation here for the sake of clarity.
