Jeremiah 38:15-28

Then Jeremiah
<03414>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Zedekiah
<06667>_,
If I declare
<05046> (8686)
[it] unto thee, wilt thou not surely
<04191> (8687)
put me to death
<04191> (8686)_?
and if I give thee counsel
<03289> (8799)_,
wilt thou not hearken
<08085> (8799)
unto me?
So Zedekiah
<06667>
the king
<04428>
sware
<07650> (8735)
secretly
<05643>
unto Jeremiah
<03414>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
[As] the LORD
<03068>
liveth
<02416>_,
that made
<06213> (8804)
us this soul
<05315>_,
I will not put thee to death
<04191> (8686)_,
neither will I give
<05414> (8799)
thee into the hand
<03027>
of these men
<0582>
that seek
<01245> (8764)
thy life
<05315>_.
Then said
<0559> (8799)
Jeremiah
<03414>
unto Zedekiah
<06667>_,
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_,
the God
<0430>
of hosts
<06635>_,
the God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>_;
If thou wilt assuredly
<03318> (8800)
go forth
<03318> (8799)
unto the king
<04428>
of Babylon's
<0894>
princes
<08269>_,
then thy soul
<05315>
shall live
<02421> (8804)_,
and this city
<05892>
shall not be burned
<08313> (8735)
with fire
<0784>_;
and thou shalt live
<02421> (8804)_,
and thine house
<01004>_:
But if thou wilt not go forth
<03318> (8799)
to the king
<04428>
of Babylon's
<0894>
princes
<08269>_,
then shall this city
<05892>
be given
<05414> (8738)
into the hand
<03027>
of the Chaldeans
<03778>_,
and they shall burn
<08313> (8804)
it with fire
<0784>_,
and thou shalt not escape out
<04422> (8735)
of their hand
<03027>_.
And Zedekiah
<06667>
the king
<04428>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Jeremiah
<03414>_,
I am afraid
<01672> (8802)
of the Jews
<03064>
that are fallen
<05307> (8804)
to the Chaldeans
<03778>_,
lest they deliver
<05414> (8799)
me into their hand
<03027>_,
and they mock
<05953> (8694)
me.
But Jeremiah
<03414>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
They shall not deliver
<05414> (8799)
[thee]. Obey
<08085> (8798)_,
I beseech thee, the voice
<06963>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
which I speak
<01696> (8802)
unto thee: so it shall be well
<03190> (8799)
unto thee, and thy soul
<05315>
shall live
<02421> (8799)_.
But if thou refuse
<03986>
to go forth
<03318> (8800)_,
this [is] the word
<01697>
that the LORD
<03068>
hath shewed
<07200> (8689)
me:
And, behold, all the women
<0802>
that are left
<07604> (8738)
in the king
<04428>
of Judah's
<03063>
house
<01004>
[shall be] brought forth
<03318> (8716)
to the king
<04428>
of Babylon's
<0894>
princes
<08269>_,
and those [women] shall say
<0559> (8802)_,
Thy friends
<0582> <07965>
have set thee on
<05496> (8689)_,
and have prevailed
<03201> (8804)
against thee: thy feet
<07272>
are sunk
<02883> (8717)
in the mire
<01206>_,
[and] they are turned away
<05472> (8738)
back
<0268>_.
{Thy friends: Heb. Men of thy peace}
So they shall bring out
<03318> (8688)
all thy wives
<0802>
and thy children
<01121>
to the Chaldeans
<03778>_:
and thou shalt not escape out
<04422> (8735)
of their hand
<03027>_,
but shalt be taken
<08610> (8735)
by the hand
<03027>
of the king
<04428>
of Babylon
<0894>_:
and thou shalt cause this city
<05892>
to be burned
<08313> (8799)
with fire
<0784>_.
{thou shalt cause...: Heb. thou shalt burn, etc}
Then said
<0559> (8799)
Zedekiah
<06667>
unto Jeremiah
<03414>_,
Let no man
<0376>
know
<03045> (8799)
of these words
<01697>_,
and thou shalt not die
<04191> (8799)_.
But if the princes
<08269>
hear
<08085> (8799)
that I have talked
<01696> (8765)
with thee, and they come
<0935> (8804)
unto thee, and say
<0559> (8804)
unto thee, Declare
<05046> (8685)
unto us now what thou hast said
<01696> (8765)
unto the king
<04428>_,
hide
<03582> (8762)
it not from us, and we will not put thee to death
<04191> (8686)_;
also what the king
<04428>
said
<01696> (8765)
unto thee:
Then thou shalt say
<0559> (8804)
unto them, I presented
<05307> (8688)
my supplication
<08467>
before
<06440>
the king
<04428>_,
that he would not cause me to return
<07725> (8687)
to Jonathan's
<03083>
house
<01004>_,
to die
<04191> (8800)
there.
Then came
<0935> (8799)
all the princes
<08269>
unto Jeremiah
<03414>_,
and asked
<07592> (8799)
him: and he told
<05046> (8686)
them according to all these words
<01697>
that the king
<04428>
had commanded
<06680> (8765)_.
So they left off speaking
<02790> (8686)
with him; for the matter
<01697>
was not perceived
<08085> (8738)_.
{they...: Heb. they were silent from him}
So Jeremiah
<03414>
abode
<03427> (8799)
in the court
<02691>
of the prison
<04307>
until the day
<03117>
that Jerusalem
<03389>
was taken
<03920> (8738)_:
and he was [there] when Jerusalem
<03389>
was taken
<03920> (8738)_.
