Jeremiah Warns Zedekiah
Zedekiah the son of Josiah,
whom Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon made king in the land of Judah, reigned instead of
Coniah the son of Jehoiakim.
Jeremiah 37:1 In-Context
Zedekiah the son of Josiah, whom Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon made king in the land of Judah, reigned instead of Coniah the son of Jehoiakim.
But neither he nor his servants nor the people of the land listened to the words of the LORD that he spoke through Jeremiah the prophet.
King Zedekiah sent Jehucal the son of Shelemiah, and Zephaniah the priest, the son of Maaseiah, to Jeremiah the prophet, saying, "Please pray for us to the LORD our God."
Now Jeremiah was still going in and out among the people, for he had not yet been put in prison.
The army of Pharaoh had come out of Egypt. And when the Chaldeans who were besieging Jerusalem heard news about them, they withdrew from Jerusalem.
