Jeremiah 43:2-3

Context
43:2 Then Azariah 1  son of Hoshaiah, Johanan son of Kareah, and other arrogant men said to Jeremiah, “You are telling a lie! The Lord our God did not send you to tell us, ‘You must not go to Egypt and settle there.’ 43:3 But Baruch son of Neriah is stirring you up against us. 2  He wants to hand us over 3  to the Babylonians 4  so that they will kill us or carry us off into exile in Babylon.”

1 sn See the study note on 42:1 for the possible identification of this man with Jezaniah son of Hoshaiah and Jezaniah the son of the Maacathite.

2 tn Or “is inciting you against us.”

3 tn Heb “in order to give us into the hands of the Chaldeans.” The substitution “he wants to” as the equivalent of the purpose clause has been chosen to shorten the sentence to better conform with contemporary English style.

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