A Prophecy against Zedekiah

1 The word which came to Jeremiah from the LORD, when Nebuchadnezzar R1761 king of Babylon and all his army, with all R1762 the kingdoms of the earth that were under his dominion and all the peoples, were fighting against Jerusalem and against all its cities, saying, 2 "Thus says the LORD God of Israel, `Go R1763 and speak to Zedekiah king of Judah and say to him: "Thus says the LORD, `Behold, I R1764 am giving this city into the hand of the king of Babylon, and he R1765 will burn it with fire. 3 `You R1766 will not escape from his hand, for you will surely be captured and delivered into his hand; and you will see R1767 the king of Babylon eye to eye, and he will speak with you face F341 to face, and you will go to Babylon.' "' 4 "Yet hear the word of the LORD, O Zedekiah king of Judah! Thus says the LORD concerning you, `You will not die by the sword. 5 `You will die in peace; and as spices were burned for your fathers, the former kings who were before you, so they will burn R1768 spices for you; and they R1769 will lament for you, "Alas, lord!"' For I have spoken the word," declares the LORD.

6 Then Jeremiah the prophet spoke all R1770 these words to Zedekiah king of Judah in Jerusalem 7 when the army of the king of Babylon was fighting against Jerusalem and against all the remaining cities of Judah, that is, Lachish R1771 and Azekah, R1772 for they alone remained as fortified R1773 cities among the cities of Judah.

8 The word which came to Jeremiah from the LORD after King Zedekiah had made R1774 a covenant with all the people who were in Jerusalem to proclaim R1775 release F342 to them: 9 that each man should set free his male servant and each man his female servant, a Hebrew R1776 man or a Hebrew woman; so that no R1777 one should keep them, a Jew his brother, in bondage. 10 And all the officials R1778 and all the people obeyed who had entered into the covenant that each man should set free his male servant and each man his female servant, so that no one should keep them any longer in bondage; they obeyed, and set them free. 11 But afterward they turned around and took back the male servants and the female servants whom they had set free, and brought them into subjection for male servants and for female servants.

12 Then the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying, 13 "Thus says the LORD God of Israel, `I made R1779 a covenant with your forefathers in the day that I brought R1780 them out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage, saying, 14 "At R1781 the end of seven years each of you shall set free his Hebrew brother who has F343 been sold to you and has served you six years, you shall send him out free from you; but your forefathers did R1782 not obey Me or incline their ear to Me. 15 "Although recently you had turned and done R1783 what is right in My sight, each man proclaiming release F344 to his neighbor, and you had made R1784 a covenant before Me in R1785 the house which is called by My name. 16 "Yet you turned R1786 and profaned R1787 My name, and each man took F345 back his male servant and each man his female servant whom you had set free according to their desire, and you brought them into subjection to be your male servants and female servants."'

17 "Therefore thus says the LORD, `You have not obeyed Me in proclaiming release F346 each man to his brother and each man to his neighbor. Behold, I am proclaiming R1788 a release F346 to you,' declares the LORD, `to the sword, R1789 to the pestilence and to the famine; and I will make you a terror R1790 to all the kingdoms of the earth. 18 `I will give the men who have transgressed R1791 My covenant, who have not fulfilled the words of the covenant which they made before Me, when they cut R1792 the calf in two and passed between its parts-- 19 the officials R1793 of Judah and the officials of Jerusalem, the court officers and the priests and all the people of the land who passed between the parts of the calf-- 20 I will give them into the hand of their enemies and into the hand of those who seek R1794 their life. And their dead R1795 bodies will be food for the birds of the sky and the beasts of the earth. 21 `Zedekiah R1796 king of Judah and his officials I will give into the hand of their enemies and into the hand of those who seek their life, and into the hand of the army of the king of Babylon which has gone R1797 away from you. 22 `Behold, I am going to command,' declares the LORD, `and I will bring them back to this city; and they will fight against it and take R1798 it and burn it with fire; and I will make the cities of Judah a desolation R1799 without R1800 inhabitant.' "
