(Now Uriah son of Shemaiah from Kiriath Jearim1 was another man who prophesied in the name of the LORD; he prophesied the same things against this city and this land as Jeremiah did.
When King Jehoiakim2 and all his officers and officials3 heard his words, the king sought to put him to death.4 But Uriah heard of it and fled5 in fear to Egypt.
King Jehoiakim, however, sent Elnathan6 son of Acbor to Egypt, along with some other men.
They brought Uriah out of Egypt and took him to King Jehoiakim, who had him struck down with a sword7 and his body thrown into the burial place of the common people.)824
Furthermore, Ahikam9 son of Shaphan supported Jeremiah, and so he was not handed over to the people to be put to death.
