Jeremiah Warns against Trust in Pharaoh

1 Now Zedekiah R1895 the son of Josiah whom Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon had made R1896 king in the land of Judah, reigned as king in place of Coniah R1897 the son of Jehoiakim. 2 But neither R1898 he nor his servants nor the people of the land listened to the words of the LORD which He spoke through Jeremiah the prophet.

3 Yet King R1899 Zedekiah sent Jehucal the son of Shelemiah, and Zephaniah R1900 the son of Maaseiah, the priest, to Jeremiah the prophet, saying, "Please R1901 pray to the LORD our God on our behalf." 4 Now Jeremiah was still coming in and going out among the people, for they had not yet put R1902 him in the prison. 5 Meanwhile, Pharaoh's R1903 army had set out from Egypt; and when the Chaldeans who had been besieging Jerusalem heard the report about them, they lifted R1904 the siege from Jerusalem.

6 Then the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah the prophet, saying, 7 "Thus says the LORD God of Israel, `Thus R1905 you are to say to the king of Judah, who sent you to Me to inquire of Me: "Behold, Pharaoh's R1906 army which has come out for your assistance is going to return to its own land of Egypt. 8 "The Chaldeans will also return R1907 and fight against this city, and they will capture it and burn it with fire."' 9 "Thus says the LORD, `Do not deceive R1908 yourselves, saying, "The Chaldeans will surely go away from us," for they will not go. 10 `For even R1909 if you had defeated the entire army of Chaldeans who were fighting against you, and there were only wounded men left among them, each man in his tent, they would rise up and burn R1910 this city with fire.' "

Jeremiah Imprisoned

11 Now it happened when the army of the Chaldeans had lifted the siege from Jerusalem because of Pharaoh's army, 12 that Jeremiah went out from Jerusalem to go to the land of Benjamin in order to take R1911 possession F362 of some property there among the people. 13 While he was at the Gate R1912 of Benjamin, a captain of the guard whose name was Irijah, the son of Shelemiah the son of Hananiah was there; and he arrested R1913 Jeremiah the prophet, saying, "You are going F363 over to the Chaldeans!" 14 But Jeremiah said, "A R1914 lie! I am not going F364 over to the Chaldeans"; yet he would not listen to him. So Irijah arrested Jeremiah and brought him to the officials. 15 Then the officials were angry R1915 at Jeremiah and beat him, and they put R1916 him in jail in the house of Jonathan the scribe, which they had made into the prison. 16 For Jeremiah had come into the dungeon, R1917 F365 that is, the vaulted cell; and Jeremiah stayed there many days.

17 Now King Zedekiah sent and took him out; and in his palace the king secretly R1918 asked him and said, "Is there a word R1919 from the LORD?" And Jeremiah said, "There is!" Then he said, "You will be given R1920 into the hand of the king of Babylon!" 18 Moreover Jeremiah said to King Zedekiah, "In R1921 what way have I sinned against you, or against your servants, or against this people, that you have put me in prison? 19 "Where R1922 then are your prophets who prophesied to you, saying, `The king R1923 of Babylon will not come against you or against this land'? 20 "But now, please listen, O my lord the king; please let my petition R1924 come F366 before you and do not make me return to the house of Jonathan the scribe, that I may not die there." 21 Then King Zedekiah gave commandment, and they committed Jeremiah to the court R1925 of the guardhouse and gave him a loaf of bread R1926 daily from the bakers' street, until all the bread in the city was gone. R1927 So Jeremiah remained in the court of the guardhouse.
