After the king had burned the scroll with the words Baruch had written at Jeremiah's dictation,a the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah:
"Take another scroll, and once again write on it the very words that were on the original scroll that Jehoiakim king of Judah burned.
You are to proclaim concerning Jehoiakim king of Judah: This is what the Lord says: You have burned the scroll, saying: Why have you written on it: The king of Babylon will certainly come and destroy this land and cause it to be without man or beast?
Therefore, this is what the Lord says concerning Jehoiakim king of Judah: He will have no one to sit on David's throne, and his corpse will be thrown out [to be exposed] to the heat of day and the frost of night.b31
I will punish him, his descendants, and his officers for their wrongdoing. I will bring on them, on the residents of Jerusalem, and on the men of Judah all the disaster, which I warned them about but they did not listen."
Then Jeremiah took another scroll and gave it to Baruch son of Neriah, the scribe, and he wrote on it at Jeremiah's dictationc all the words of the scroll that Jehoiakim, Judah's king, had burned in the fire. And many other words like them were added.
