View In My Bible
18 'I will pursue them with the sword, with famine and with pestilence; and I will 1make them a terror to all the kingdoms of the earth, to be a 2curse and a horror and a 3hissing, and a reproach among all the nations where I have driven them, 19 because they have 4not listened to My words,' declares the LORD, 'which I sent to them again and again by 5My servants the prophets; but you did not listen,' declares the LORD. 20 "You, therefore, hear the word of the LORD, all you exiles, whom I have 6sent away from Jerusalem to Babylon. 21 "Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, concerning Ahab the son of Kolaiah and concerning Zedekiah the son of Maaseiah, who are 7prophesying to you falsely in My name, 'Behold, I will deliver them into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, and he will slay them before your eyes. 22 'Because of them a 8curse will be aused by all the exiles from Judah who are in Babylon, saying, "May the LORD make you like Zedekiah and like Ahab, whom the king of Babylon 9roasted in the fire, 23 because they have 10acted foolishly in Israel, and 11have committed adultery with their neighbors' wives and have 12spoken words in My name falsely, which I did not command them; and I am He who 13knows and am a witness," declares the LORD.' " 24 To 14Shemaiah the Nehelamite you shall speak, saying, 25 "Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, 'Because you have sent 15letters in your own name to all the people who are in Jerusalem, and to 16Zephaniah the son of Maaseiah, the priest, and to all the priests, saying, 26 "The LORD has made you priest instead of Jehoiada the priest, to be the b17overseer in the house of the LORD over every 18madman who 19prophesies, to 20put him in the stocks and in the iron collar, 27 now then, why have you not rebuked Jeremiah of 21Anathoth who prophesies to you? 28 "For he has 22sent to us in Babylon, saying, 'The exile will be 23long; 24build houses and live in them and plant gardens and eat their cproduce.'
