Jerusalem's Last Days

1 Zedekiah son of Josiah reigned as king in the land of Judah in place of Jehoiachina son of Jehoiakim, for Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon made him king. 2 He and his officers and the people of the land did not obey the words of the Lord that He spoke through Jeremiah the prophet. 3 Nevertheless, King Zedekiah sent Jehucalb son of Shelemiah and Zephaniahc son of Maaseiah, the priest, to Jeremiah the prophet, requesting, "Please pray to the Lord our God for us!" 4 Jeremiah was going about his daily tasksd among the people, for they had not [yet] put him into the prison. 5 Pharaoh's army had left Egypt, and when the Chaldeans, who were besieging Jerusalem, heard the report, they withdrew from Jerusalem. 6 The word of the Lord came to Jeremiah the prophet: 7 "This is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says: This is what you will say to Judah's king, who is sending you to inquire of Me: Watch: Pharaoh's army, which has come out to help you, is going to return to its own land of Egypt.
