Jeremiah 20:6

Jeremiah 20:6

And thou, Pashur, and all that dwell in thine house, shall go
into captivity
Particularly he and his family should not escape; whoever did: and thou shalt come to Babylon;
being brought there, though sore against his will: and there thou shalt die, and shalt be buried there;
even in a defiled land, as all other countries were reckoned by the Jews; and to be buried in such a land, Kimchi observes, was a curse; and so it is here threatened as such: thou, and all thy friends;
that is, such as should escape the sword, ( Jeremiah 20:4 ) ; to whom thou hast prophesied lies;
this shows the cause of; all this threatened destruction to him and his friends; not only because he had so ill used Jeremiah, a true prophet of the Lord; but because he was a false prophet, and his friends had hearkened to his lies, and disbelieved those prophecies that came from the Lord himself.
