For thus says the LORD: Behold, I will make you 9a terror to yourself and to all your friends. They shall fall by the sword of their enemies while you look on. And I will give all Judah into the hand of the king of Babylon. He shall carry them captive to Babylon, and shall strike them down with the sword.
Moreover, 10I will give all the wealth of the city, all its gains, all its 11prized belongings, and all the treasures of the kings of Judah into the hand of their enemies, who shall plunder them and seize them and carry them to Babylon.
And you, 12Pashhur, and all who dwell in your house, shall go into captivity. To Babylon you shall go, and there you shall die, and there you shall be buried, you and all your friends, 13to whom you have prophesied falsely."
1023For I hear many whispering. 24Terror is on every side! "Denounce him! 25Let us denounce him!" say all my 26close friends, 27watching for 28my fall. "Perhaps he will be deceived; then 29we can overcome him and take our revenge on him."
But 30the LORD is with me as a dread warrior; therefore my persecutors will stumble; 31they will not overcome me. 32They will be greatly shamed, for they will not succeed. Their 33eternal dishonor will never be forgotten.
