View In My Bible
23 'They will also bring out all your wives and your 1sons to the Chaldeans, and 2you yourself will not escape from their hand, but will be seized by the hand of the king of Babylon, and 3this city will be burned with fire.' " 24 Then Zedekiah said to Jeremiah, "Let no man know about these words and you will not die. 25 "But if the 4officials hear that I have talked with you and come to you and say to you, 'Tell us now what you said to the king and what the king said to you; do not hide it from us and we will not put you to death,' 26 then you are to say to them, 'I was 5presenting my petition before the king, not to make me return to the house of Jonathan to die there.' " 27 Then all the officials came to Jeremiah and questioned him. So he reported to them in accordance with all these words which the king had commanded; and they ceased speaking with him, since the aconversation had not been overheard. 28 So Jeremiah 6stayed in the court of the guardhouse until the day that Jerusalem was captured.
