18 Baruch said, "That's right. Every word right from his own mouth. And I wrote it down, word for word, with pen and ink."
19 The government officials told Baruch, "You need to get out of here. Go into hiding, you and Jeremiah. Don't let anyone know where you are!"
20 The officials went to the court of the palace to report to the king, having put the scroll for safekeeping in the office of Elishama the secretary of state.
21 The king sent Jehudi to get the scroll. He brought it from the office of Elishama the secretary. Jehudi then read it to the king and the officials who were in the king's service.
22 It was December. The king was sitting in his winter quarters in front of a charcoal fire.
