View In My Bible
6 Then the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah the prophet, saying, 7 "Thus says the LORD God of Israel, '1Thus you are to say to the king of Judah, who sent you to Me to inquire of Me: "Behold, 2Pharaoh's army which has come out for your assistance is going to return to its own land of Egypt. 8 "The Chaldeans will also 3return and fight against this city, and they will capture it and burn it with fire."' 9 "Thus says the LORD, 'Do not 4deceive yourselves, saying, "The Chaldeans will surely go away from us," for they will not go. 10 'For 5even if you had defeated the entire army of Chaldeans who were fighting against you, and there were only wounded men left among them, each man in his tent, they would rise up and 6burn this city with fire.' "

Jeremiah Imprisoned

11 Now it happened when the army of the Chaldeans had lifted the siege from Jerusalem because of Pharaoh's army, 12 that Jeremiah went out from Jerusalem to go to the land of Benjamin in order to 7take apossession of some property there among the people. 13 While he was at the 8Gate of Benjamin, a captain of the guard whose name was Irijah, the son of Shelemiah the son of Hananiah was there; and he 9arrested Jeremiah the prophet, saying, "You are bgoing over to the Chaldeans!" 14 But Jeremiah said, "10A lie! I am not cgoing over to the Chaldeans "; yet he would not listen to him. So Irijah arrested Jeremiah and brought him to the officials. 15 Then the officials were 11angry at Jeremiah and beat him, and they 12put him in jail in the house of Jonathan the scribe, which they had made into the prison . 16 For Jeremiah had come into the d13dungeon, that is, the vaulted cell; and Jeremiah stayed there many days.
