161When Jeremiah had come to the dungeon cells and remained there many days,
King Zedekiah sent for him and received him. The king questioned him 2secretly in his house and said, "Is there any word from the LORD?" Jeremiah said, "There is." Then he said, 3"You shall be delivered into the hand of the king of Babylon."
Jeremiah also said to King Zedekiah, "What wrong have I done to you or your servants or this people, 4that you have put me in prison?
195Where are your prophets who prophesied to you, saying, 'The king of Babylon will not come against you and against this land'?
Now hear, please, O my lord the king: 6let my humble plea come before you and 7do not send me back to the house of Jonathan the secretary, lest I die there."
So King Zedekiah gave orders, and they committed Jeremiah to 8the court of the guard. And a loaf of bread was given him daily from the bakers' street, 9until all the bread of the city was gone. So Jeremiah remained in 10the court of the guard.
