Jeremiah 42:3-5

42:3 Pray that the Lord your God will tell us where we should go and what we should do.” 42:4 The prophet Jeremiah answered them, “Agreed! 1  I will indeed pray to the Lord your God as you have asked. I will tell you everything the Lord replies in response to you. 2  I will not keep anything back from you.” 42:5 They answered Jeremiah, “May the Lord be a true and faithful witness against us if we do not do just as 3  the Lord sends you to tell us to do.

1 tn Heb “I have heard” = “I agree.” For this nuance of the verb see BDB 1034 s.v. שָׁמַע Qal.1.j and compare the usage in Gen 37:27 and Judg 11:17 listed there.

2 tn Heb “all the word which the Lord will answer you.

3 tn Heb “do according to all the word which.”
