Jeremiah 38:25

Context
NETBible

The officials may hear that I have talked with you. They may come to you and say, ‘Tell us what you said to the king and what the king said to you. 1  Do not hide anything from us. If you do, we will kill you.’ 2 

XREF

Jer 38:4-6,27

NET © Notes

tn The phrase “and what the king said to you” is actually at the end of the verse, but most commentators see it as also under the governance of “tell us” and many commentaries and English versions move the clause forward for the sake of English style as has been done here.

tn Or “lest we kill you”; Heb “and we will not kill you,” which as stated in the translator’s note on 37:20 introduces a negative purpose (or result) clause. See 37:20, 38:24 for parallel usage.
