Jeremiah 20:1-6

Pashhur Persecutes Jeremiah

1 When Pashhur the priest, the son of 1Immer, who was 2chief officer in the house of the LORD, heard Jeremiah prophesying these things,
2 Pashhur had Jeremiah the prophet 3beaten and put him in the 4stocks that were at the upper 5Benjamin Gate, which was by the house of the LORD.
3 On the next day, when Pashhur released Jeremiah from the stocks, Jeremiah said to him, "Pashhur is not the name the LORD has 6called you, but rather * 7Magor-missabib.
4 "For thus says the LORD, 'Behold, I am going to make you a 8terror to yourself and to all your friends; and while 9your eyes look on, they will fall by the sword of their enemies. So I will 10give over all Judah to the hand of the king of Babylon, and he will carry them away as 11exiles to Babylon and will slay them with the sword.
5 'I will also give over all the 12wealth of this city, all its produce and all its costly things; even all the treasures of the kings of Judah I will give over to the 13hand of their enemies, and they will plunder them, take them away and bring them to Babylon.
6 'And you, 14Pashhur, and all who live in your house will go into captivity; and you will enter Babylon, and there you will die and there you will be buried, you and all your 15friends to whom you have 16falsely prophesied.' "
