Jeremiah 37:17

Context
37:17 Then King Zedekiah had him brought to the palace. There he questioned him privately and asked him, 1  “Is there any message from the Lord?” Jeremiah answered, “Yes, there is.” Then he announced, 2  “You will be handed over to the king of Babylon.” 3 

1 tn Heb “Then King Zedekiah sent and brought him and the king asked him privately [or more literally, in secret] and said.”

2 tn Heb “Then he said.”

3 sn Jeremiah’s answer even under duress was the same that he had given Zedekiah earlier. (See Jer 34:3 and see the study note on 34:1 for the relative timing of these two incidents.)
