37:1 And king [H4428] Zedekiah [H6667] the son [H1121] of Josiah [H2977] reigned [H4427] instead of Coniah [H3659] the son [H1121] of Jehoiakim [H3079] , whom Nebuchadrezzar [H5019] king [H4428] of Babylon [H894] made king [H4427] in the land [H776] of Judah [H3063] .

37:2 But neither he, nor his servants [H5650] , nor the people [H5971] of the land [H776] , did hearken [H8085] unto the words [H1697] of the LORD [H3068] , which he spake [H1696] by [H3027] the prophet [H5030] Jeremiah [H3414] .(by: Heb. by the hand of the prophet)

37:3 And Zedekiah [H6667] the king [H4428] sent [H7971] Jehucal [H3081] the son [H1121] of Shelemiah [H8018] and Zephaniah [H6846] the son [H1121] of Maaseiah [H4641] the priest [H3548] to the prophet [H5030] Jeremiah [H3414] , saying [H559] , Pray [H6419] now unto the LORD [H3068] our God [H430] for us.

37:4 Now Jeremiah [H3414] came in [H935] and went out [H3318] among [H8432] the people [H5971] : for they had not put [H5414] him into prison [H1004] [H3628] .

37:5 Then Pharaoh's [H6547] army [H2428] was come forth [H3318] out of Egypt [H4714] : and when the Chaldeans [H3778] that besieged [H6696] Jerusalem [H3389] heard [H8085] tidings [H8088] of them, they departed [H5927] from Jerusalem [H3389] .

37:6 Then came the word [H1697] of the LORD [H3068] unto the prophet [H5030] Jeremiah [H3414] , saying [H559] ,

37:7 Thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] , the God [H430] of Israel [H3478] ; Thus shall ye say [H559] to the king [H4428] of Judah [H3063] , that sent [H7971] you unto me to enquire [H1875] of me; Behold, Pharaoh's [H6547] army [H2428] , which is come forth [H3318] to help [H5833] you, shall return [H7725] to Egypt [H4714] into their own land [H776] .

37:8 And the Chaldeans [H3778] shall come again [H7725] , and fight [H3898] against this city [H5892] , and take [H3920] it, and burn [H8313] it with fire [H784] .

37:9 Thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] ; Deceive [H5377] not yourselves [H5315] , saying [H559] , The Chaldeans [H3778] shall surely [H1980] depart [H3212] from us: for they shall not depart [H3212] .(yourselves: Heb. your souls)

37:10 For though ye had smitten [H5221] the whole army [H2428] of the Chaldeans [H3778] that fight [H3898] against you, and there remained [H7604] [but] wounded [H1856] men [H582] among them, [yet] should they rise up [H6965] every man [H376] in his tent [H168] , and burn [H8313] this city [H5892] with fire [H784] .(wounded: Heb. thrust through)

37:11 And it came to pass, that when the army [H2428] of the Chaldeans [H3778] was broken up [H5927] from Jerusalem [H3389] for fear [H6440] of Pharaoh's [H6547] army [H2428] ,(broken: Heb. made to ascend)

37:12 Then Jeremiah [H3414] went forth [H3318] out of Jerusalem [H3389] to go [H3212] into the land [H776] of Benjamin [H1144] , to separate [H2505] himself thence in the midst [H8432] of the people [H5971] .(separate: or, to slip away from thence in the midst of the people)

37:13 And when he was in the gate [H8179] of Benjamin [H1144] , a captain [H1167] of the ward [H6488] [was] there, whose name [H8034] [was] Irijah [H3376] , the son [H1121] of Shelemiah [H8018] , the son [H1121] of Hananiah [H2608] ; and he took [H8610] Jeremiah [H3414] the prophet [H5030] , saying [H559] , Thou fallest away [H5307] to the Chaldeans [H3778] .

37:14 Then said [H559] Jeremiah [H3414] , [It is] false [H8267] ; I fall not away [H5307] to the Chaldeans [H3778] . But he hearkened [H8085] not to him: so Irijah [H3376] took [H8610] Jeremiah [H3414] , and brought [H935] him to the princes [H8269] .(false: Heb. falsehood, or, a lie)

37:15 Wherefore the princes [H8269] were wroth [H7107] with Jeremiah [H3414] , and smote [H5221] him, and put [H5414] him in prison [H612] in the house [H1004] of Jonathan [H3083] the scribe [H5608] : for they had made [H6213] that the prison [H3608] .

37:16 When Jeremiah [H3414] was entered [H935] into the dungeon [H1004] [H953] , and into the cabins [H2588] , and Jeremiah [H3414] had remained [H3427] there many [H7227] days [H3117] ;(cabins: or, cells)

37:17 Then Zedekiah [H6667] the king [H4428] sent [H7971] , and took him out [H3947] : and the king [H4428] asked [H7592] him secretly [H5643] in his house [H1004] , and said [H559] , Is there [any] word [H1697] from the LORD [H3068] ? And Jeremiah [H3414] said [H559] , There is [H3426] : for, said [H559] he, thou shalt be delivered [H5414] into the hand [H3027] of the king [H4428] of Babylon [H894] .

37:18 Moreover Jeremiah [H3414] said [H559] unto king [H4428] Zedekiah [H6667] , What have I offended [H2398] against thee, or against thy servants [H5650] , or against this people [H5971] , that ye have put [H5414] me in prison [H1004] [H3608] ?

37:19 Where [are] now [H346] your prophets [H5030] which prophesied [H5012] unto you, saying [H559] , The king [H4428] of Babylon [H894] shall not come [H935] against you, nor against this land [H776] ?

37:20 Therefore hear [H8085] now, I pray thee, O my lord [H113] the king [H4428] : let my supplication [H8467] , I pray thee, be accepted [H5307] before [H6440] thee; that thou cause me not to return [H7725] to the house [H1004] of Jonathan [H3083] the scribe [H5608] , lest I die [H4191] there.(let: Heb. let my supplication fall)

37:21 Then Zedekiah [H6667] the king [H4428] commanded [H6680] that they should commit [H6485] Jeremiah [H3414] into the court [H2691] of the prison [H4307] , and that they should give [H5414] him daily [H3117] a piece [H3603] of bread [H3899] out of the bakers' [H644] street [H2351] , until all the bread [H3899] in the city [H5892] were spent [H8552] . Thus Jeremiah [H3414] remained [H3427] in the court [H2691] of the prison [H4307] .
