"'But listen, O Zedekiah king of Judah, to the rest of the Message of God. You won't be killed.
You'll die a peaceful death. They will honor you with funeral rites as they honored your ancestors, the kings who preceded you. They will properly mourn your death, weeping, "Master, master!" This is a solemn promise. God's Decree.'"
