Jeremiah's Scroll Read in the Temple

1 In the 1fourth year of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah, king of Judah, this word came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying, 2 "Take a a2scroll and write on it all the 3words which I have spoken to you concerning 4Israel and concerning Judah, and concerning all the 5nations, from the 6day I first spoke to you, from the days of Josiah, even to this day. 3 "7Perhaps the house of Judah will hear all the calamity which I plan to bring on them, in order that every man will 8turn from his evil way; then I will 9forgive their iniquity and their sin." 4 Then Jeremiah called 10Baruch the son of Neriah, and Baruch wrote on a b11scroll cat the dictation of Jeremiah all the words of the LORD which He had spoken to him. 5 Jeremiah commanded Baruch, saying, "I am d12restricted; I cannot go into the house of the LORD. 6 "So you go and 13read from the scroll which you have 14written eat my dictation the words of the LORD fto the people in the LORD'S house on a 15fast day. And also you shall read them gto all the people of Judah who come from their cities. 7 "16Perhaps their supplication will hcome before the LORD, and everyone will turn from his evil way, for 17great is the anger and the wrath that the LORD has pronounced against this people." 8 Baruch the son of Neriah did according to all that Jeremiah the prophet commanded him, 18reading from the book the words of the LORD in the LORD'S house.
