11 When Micaiah son of Gemariah, son of Shaphan, heard all the words of the Lord from the scroll, 11 When Micaiah son of Gemariah, the son of Shaphan, heard all the words of the LORD from the scroll,

All the officials were sitting there-Elishama the scribe, Delaiah son of Shemaiah, Elnathan son of Achbor, Gemariah son of Shaphan, Zedekiah son of Hananiah, and all the other officials. 12 he went down to the secretary's room in the royal palace, where all the officials were sitting: Elishama the secretary, Delaiah son of Shemaiah, Elnathan son of Acbor, Gemariah son of Shaphan, Zedekiah son of Hananiah, and all the other officials.
13 Micaiah reported to them all the words he had heard when Baruch read from the scroll in the hearing of the people. 13 After Micaiah told them everything he had heard Baruch read to the people from the scroll,
14 Then all the officials sent [word] to Baruch through Jehudi son of Nethaniah, son of Shelemiah, son of Cushi, saying, "Bring the scroll that you read in the hearing of the people, and come." So Baruch son of Neriah took the scroll and went to them. 14 all the officials sent Jehudi son of Nethaniah, the son of Shelemiah, the son of Cushi, to say to Baruch, "Bring the scroll from which you have read to the people and come." So Baruch son of Neriah went to them with the scroll in his hand.
15 They said to him, "Sit down and read [it] in our hearing." So Baruch read [it] in their hearing. 15 They said to him, "Sit down, please, and read it to us." So Baruch read it to them.
16 When they had heard all the words, they turned to each other in fear and said to Baruch, "We must surely tell the king all these things." 16 When they heard all these words, they looked at each other in fear and said to Baruch, "We must report all these words to the king."
17 Then they asked Baruch, "Tell us-how did you write all these words? At his dictation?" 17 Then they asked Baruch, "Tell us, how did you come to write all this? Did Jeremiah dictate it?"
18 Baruch said to them, "At his dictation. He recited all these words to me while I was writing on the scroll in ink." 18 "Yes," Baruch replied, "he dictated all these words to me, and I wrote them in ink on the scroll."
19 The officials said to Baruch, "You and Jeremiah must hide yourselves and tell no one where you are." 19 Then the officials said to Baruch, "You and Jeremiah, go and hide. Don't let anyone know where you are."
20 Then they came to the king at the courtyard, having deposited the scroll in the chamber of Elishama the scribe, and reported everything in the hearing of the king. 20 After they put the scroll in the room of Elishama the secretary, they went to the king in the courtyard and reported everything to him.

23 As soon as Jehudi would read three or four columns, Jehoiakim would cut the scroll with a scribe's knife and throw the columns into the blazing fire until the entire scroll was consumed by the fire in the brazier. 23 Whenever Jehudi had read three or four columns of the scroll, the king cut them off with a scribe's knife and threw them into the firepot, until the entire scroll was burned in the fire.

But the LORD had hidden them.
27 After the king had burned the scroll with the words Baruch had written at Jeremiah's dictation, the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah: 27 After the king burned the scroll containing the words that Baruch had written at Jeremiah's dictation, the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah:
28 "Take another scroll, and once again write on it the very words that were on the original scroll that Jehoiakim king of Judah burned. 28 "Take another scroll and write on it all the words that were on the first scroll, which Jehoiakim king of Judah burned up.
29 You are to proclaim concerning Jehoiakim king of Judah: This is what the Lord says: You have burned the scroll, saying: Why have you written on it: The king of Babylon will certainly come and destroy this land and cause it to be without man or beast? 29 Also tell Jehoiakim king of Judah, 'This is what the LORD says: You burned that scroll and said, "Why did you write on it that the king of Babylon would certainly come and destroy this land and cut off both men and animals from it?"
30 Therefore, this is what the Lord says concerning Jehoiakim king of Judah: He will have no one to sit on David's throne, and his corpse will be thrown out [to be exposed] to the heat of day and the frost of night. 30 Therefore, this is what the LORD says about Jehoiakim king of Judah: He will have no one to sit on the throne of David; his body will be thrown out and exposed to the heat by day and the frost by night.
31 I will punish him, his descendants, and his officers for their wrongdoing. I will bring on them, on the residents of Jerusalem, and on the men of Judah all the disaster, which I warned them about but they did not listen." 31 I will punish him and his children and his attendants for their wickedness; I will bring on them and those living in Jerusalem and the people of Judah every disaster I pronounced against them, because they have not listened.' "
32 Then Jeremiah took another scroll and gave it to Baruch son of Neriah, the scribe, and he wrote on it at Jeremiah's dictation all the words of the scroll that Jehoiakim, Judah's king, had burned in the fire. And many other words like them were added. 32 So Jeremiah took another scroll and gave it to the scribe Baruch son of Neriah, and as Jeremiah dictated, Baruch wrote on it all the words of the scroll that Jehoiakim king of Judah had burned in the fire. And many similar words were added to them.
