Jeremiah the prophet and said to him, "Please hear our petition and pray1 to the LORD your God for this entire remnant.2 For as you now see, though we were once many, now only a few3 are left.
Pray that the LORD your God will tell us where we should go and what we should do."44
"I have heard you," replied Jeremiah the prophet. "I will certainly pray5 to the LORD your God as you have requested; I will tell6 you everything the LORD says and will keep nothing back from you."75
Then they said to Jeremiah, "May the LORD be a true8 and faithful9 witness10 against us if we do not act in accordance with everything the LORD your God sends you to tell us.
Whether it is favorable or unfavorable, we will obey the LORD our God, to whom we are sending you, so that it will go well11 with us, for we will obey12 the LORD our God."
