Yet hear the word of the Lord, O King Zedekiah of Judah! Thus says the Lord concerning you: You shall not die by the sword;
you shall die in peace. And as spices were burned a for your ancestors, the earlier kings who preceded you, so they shall burn spices b for you and lament for you, saying, "Alas, lord!" For I have spoken the word, says the Lord.
