Did Hizkiyahu king of Yehudah and all Yehudah put him to death? Didn't he fear the LORD, and entreat the favor of the LORD, and the LORD repented him of the evil which he had pronounced against them? Thus should we commit great evil against our own souls.
There was also a man who prophesied in the name of the LORD, Uriyah the son of Shemayah of Kiryat-Ye`arim; and he prophesied against this city and against this land according to all the words of Yirmeyahu:
and when Yehoiakim the king, with all his mighty-men, and all the princes, heard his words, the king sought to put him to death; but when Uriyah heard it, he was afraid, and fled, and went into Mitzrayim:
and Yehoiakim the king sent men into Mitzrayim, [namely], Elnatan the son of `Akhbor, and certain men with him, into Mitzrayim;
and they fetched forth Uriyah out of Mitzrayim, and brought him to Yehoiakim the king, who killed him with the sword, and cast his dead body into the graves of the common people.
But the hand of Achikam the son of Shafan was with Yirmeyahu, that they should not give him into the hand of the people to put him to death.
