1AT the beginning of the reign of Jehoiakim son of Josiah, king of Judah, this word came from the LORD:

2These are the words of the LORD: Stand in the court of the LORD's house and speak to the inhabitants of all the towns of Judah who come to worship there. Tell them everything that I charge you to say to them; do not cut it short by one word.

3Perhaps they may listen, and everyone may turn back from evil ways. If they do, I shall relent, and give up my plan to bring disaster on them for their evil deeds.

4Say to them: These are the words of the LORD: If you do not obey me, if you do not live according to the law I have set before you,

5and listen to the words of my servants the prophets, whom again and again I have been sending to you, though you have never listened to them,

6then I shall do to this house as I did to Shiloh, and make this city an object of cursing to all nations on earth.

7The priests, the prophets, and all the people heard Jeremiah say this in the LORD's house

8and, when he came to the end of what the LORD had charged him to say to them, the priests and prophets and all the people seized him and threatened him with death.

9“Why”, they demanded, “do you prophesy in the LORD's name that this house will become like Shiloh and this city an uninhabited ruin?” The people all crowded round Jeremiah in the LORD's house.

10When the chief officers of Judah heard what was happening, they went up from the royal palace to the LORD's house and took their places there at the entrance of the New Gate.

11The priests and the prophets said to the officers and all the people, “This man deserves to be condemned to death, because he has prophesied against this city, as you yourselves have heard.”

12Then Jeremiah said to all the officers and people, “The LORD it was who sent me to prophesy against this house and this city all the things you have heard.

13Now, if you mend your ways and your actions and obey the LORD your God, he may relent and revoke the disaster which he has pronounced against you.

14But here I am in your hands; do with me whatever you think right and proper.

15Only you may be certain that, if you put me to death, you and this city and those who live in it will be guilty of murdering an innocent man; for truly it was the LORD who sent me to you to say all this to you.”

16The officers and all the people then said to the priests and the prophets, “This man ought not to be condemned to death, for he has spoken to us in the name of the LORD our God.”

17Some of the elders of the land also stood up and said to the whole assembled people,

18“In the time of King Hezekiah of Judah, Micah of Moresheth was prophesying and said to all the people of Judah: ‘These are the words of the LORD of Hosts: Zion will become a ploughed field, Jerusalem a heap of ruins, and the temple hill rough heath.’

19“Did King Hezekiah and all Judah put him to death? Did not the king show reverence for the LORD and seek to placate him, so that the LORD relented and revoked the disaster which he had pronounced on them? But we are on the point of inflicting great disaster on ourselves.”

20There was another man too who prophesied in the name of the LORD: Uriah son of Shemaiah, from Kiriath-jearim. He prophesied against this city and this land, just as Jeremiah had done.

21King Jehoiakim with his bodyguard and all his officers heard what he said and sought to put him to death. On hearing of this, Uriah fled in fear to Egypt.

22King Jehoiakim dispatched Elnathan son of Akbor with some others

23to fetch Uriah from Egypt. When they brought him to the king, he had him put to the sword and his body flung into the burial-place of the common people.

24But Ahikam son of Shaphan used his influence on Jeremiah's behalf to save him from death at the hands of the people.
