Jeremiah 37:1-10 (Young's Literal Translation)

View In My Bible
1 And reign doth king Zedekiah son of Josiah instead of Coniah son of Jehoiakim whom Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon had caused to reign in the land of Judah, 2 and he hath not hearkened, he, and his servants, and the people of the land, unto the words of Jehovah, that He spake by the hand of Jeremiah the prophet. 3 And Zedekiah the king sendeth Jehucal son of Shelemiah, and Zephaniah son of Maaseiah the priest, unto Jeremiah the prophet, saying, `Pray, we beseech thee, for us unto Jehovah our God.' 4 And Jeremiah is coming in and going out in the midst of the people, (and they have not put him in the prison-house), 5 and the force of Pharaoh hath come out of Egypt, and the Chaldeans, who are laying siege against Jerusalem, hear their report, and go up from off Jerusalem. 6 And there is a word of Jehovah unto Jeremiah the prophet, saying: 7 `Thus said Jehovah, God of Israel, Thus do ye say unto the king of Judah, who is sending you unto Me, to seek Me: Lo, the force of Pharaoh that is coming out to you for help hath turned back to its land, to Egypt, 8 and the Chaldeans have turned back, and fought against this city, and captured it, and burnt it with fire. 9 `Thus said Jehovah: Lift not up your souls saying, The Chaldeans surely go from off us, for they do not go; 10 for though ye had smitten all the force of the Chaldeans who are fighting with you, and there were left of them wounded men -- each in his tent -- they rise, and have burnt this city with fire.'
