Jeremiah 37:1-7 (Good News Translation)

View In My Bible
1 King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylonia made Zedekiah son of Josiah king of Judah in the place of Jehoiachin son of Jehoiakim. 1 2 But neither Zedekiah nor his officials nor the people obeyed the message which the Lord had given me. 3 King Zedekiah sent Jehucal son of Shelemiah and the priest Zephaniah son of Maaseiah to ask me to pray to the Lord our God on behalf of our nation. 4 I had not yet been put in prison and was still moving about freely among the people. 5 The Babylonian army had been besieging Jerusalem, but when they heard that the Egyptian army had crossed the Egyptian border, they retreated. 6 Then the Lord, the God of Israel, told me 7 to say to Zedekiah, "The Egyptian army is on its way to help you, but it will return home.
