Now let me give you some advice as to how you can save your life and your son Solomon’s life.
Now listen to me, I will give you advice, and may God be with you: You be a representative for the people to God, and you bring their disputes to God;
And now, I am about to go back to my own people. Come now, and I will advise you as to what this people will do to your people in the future.”
Jeremiah said to Zedekiah, “If I answer you, you will certainly kill me. If I give you advice, you will not listen to me.”
