29:32 Because he has done this,” 1 the Lord says, “I will punish Shemaiah the Nehelamite and his whole family. There will not be any of them left to experience the good things that I will do for my people. I, the Lord, affirm it! For he counseled rebellion against the Lord.”’” 2
36:31 I will punish him and his descendants and the officials who serve him for the wicked things they have done. 3 I will bring on them, the citizens of Jerusalem, 4 and the people of Judah all the disaster that I threatened to do to them. I will punish them because I threatened them but they still paid no heed.”’” 5
1 tn Heb “Therefore.”
2 sn Compare the same charge against Hananiah in Jer 28:16 and see the note there. In this case, the false prophesy of Shemaiah is not given but it likely had the same tenor since he wants Jeremiah reprimanded for saying that the exile will be long and the people are to settle down in Babylon.
3 tn Heb “for their iniquity.”
5 tn Heb “all the disaster which I spoke against them and they did not listen [or obey].”
