'This is what the LORD says: I am going to bring disaster1 on this place and its people2--all the curses3 written in the book that has been read in the presence of the king of Judah.
Because they have forsaken me4 and burned incense to other gods and provoked me to anger by all that their hands have made,a my anger will be poured out on this place and will not be quenched.'
Tell the king of Judah, who sent you to inquire of the LORD, 'This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says concerning the words you heard:
Because your heart was responsive5 and you humbled6 yourself before God when you heard what he spoke against this place and its people, and because you humbled yourself before me and tore your robes and wept in my presence, I have heard you, declares the LORD.
Now I will gather you to your fathers,7 and you will be buried in peace. Your eyes will not see all the disaster I am going to bring on this place and on those who live here.' "8 So they took her answer back to the king.
