Jeremiah 27:14-15

Context
27:14 Do not listen to the prophets who are telling you that you do not need to serve 1  the king of Babylon. For they are prophesying lies to you. 27:15 For I, the Lord, affirm 2  that I did not send them. They are prophesying lies to you. If you 3  listen to them, I will drive you and the prophets who are prophesying lies out of the land and you will all die in exile.” 4 

1 tn The verb in this context is best taken as a negative obligatory imperfect. See IBHS 508 §31.4g for discussion and examples. See Exod 4:15 as an example of positive obligation.

2 tn Heb “oracle of the Lord.”

3 sn The verbs are again plural referring to the king and his royal advisers.

4 tn Heb “…drive you out and you will perish, you and the prophets who are prophesying lies.”

sn For the fulfillment of this prophecy see Jer 39:5-7; 52:7-11; 2 Kgs 25:4-7.
