Jeremiah 37
NMV
37
1And king Tzidkiyah [Yehovah is righteous] the son of Yoshiyahu [whom Yehovah heals] reigned instead of Koniyahu [Yehovah will establish] the son of Y’hoyakim [Yehovah raises up], whom N’vukhadretzar [may Nebo protect the crown] king of Bavel (to jumble, or a confused medley of sounds; confusion; gate of the deity) (Babylon) [confusion] made king in the land of Y’hudah [Let Him (God) Be Praised].
2But neither he, nor his servants, nor the people of the land, did hearken unto the words of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), which he spoke by the prophet Yirmeyahu [whom Yehovah has appointed].
3And Tzidkiyah [Yehovah is righteous] the king sent Y’hukhal [Yehovah is able] the son of Shelemyah [repaid by Yehovah] [repaid by Yehovah] and Tzefan’yahu [Yehovah has treasured] the son of Ma’aseiyah [work of Yehovah] the priest to the prophet Yirmeyahu [whom Yehovah has appointed], saying, Pray now unto the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) our God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] for us.
4Now Yirmeyahu [whom Yehovah has appointed] came in and went out among the people: for they had not put him into prison.
5Then Par’oh’s [Pharaoh - Great House] army was come forth out of Mitzrayim [Egypt - The Narrow Place]: and when the Kasdim [clod-breakers] that besieged Yerushalayim [Foundation of Peace] heard tidings of them, they departed from Yerushalayim [Foundation of Peace].
6Then came the word of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) unto the prophet Yirmeyahu [whom Yehovah has appointed], saying,
7Thus says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), the God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God]; Thus shall you2f say to the king of Y’hudah [Let Him (God) Be Praised], that sent you unto me to enquire of me; Behold, Par’oh’s [Pharaoh - Great House] army, which is come forth to help you, shall return to Mitzrayim [Egypt - The Narrow Place] into their own land.
8And the Kasdim [clod-breakers] shall come again, and fight against this city, and take it, and burn it with fire.
9Thus says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate); Deceive not yourselves, saying, The Kasdim [clod-breakers] shall surely depart from us: for they shall not depart.
10For though you2f had smitten the whole army of the Kasdim [clod-breakers] that fight against you, and there remained [but] wounded men among them, [yet] should they rise up every man in his tent, and burn this city with fire.
11And it came to pass, that when the army of the Kasdim [clod-breakers] was broken up from Yerushalayim [Foundation of Peace] for fear of Par’oh’s [Pharaoh - Great House] army,
12Then Yirmeyahu [whom Yehovah has appointed] went forth out of Yerushalayim [Foundation of Peace] to go into the land of Binyamin [Son of the Right Hand/Strength], to separate himself there in the midst of the people.
13And when he was in the gate of Binyamin [Son of the Right Hand/Strength], a captain of the ward (in custody, with a guard; prison) [was] there, whose name [was] Yir’iyah [speak], the son of Shelemyah [repaid by Yehovah] [repaid by Yehovah], the son of Hananyah [God has favoured]; and he took Yirmeyahu [whom Yehovah has appointed] the prophet, saying, youi fall away to the Kasdim [clod-breakers].
14Then said Yirmeyahu [whom Yehovah has appointed], [It is] false; I fall not away to the Kasdim [clod-breakers]. But he listened not to him: so Yir’iyah [speak] took Yirmeyahu [whom Yehovah has appointed], and brought him to the princes.
15For what reason the princes were exceedingly angry with Yirmeyahu [whom Yehovah has appointed], and struck him, and put him in prison in the house of Y’honatan [Yehovah has Given] the scribe: for they had made that the prison.
16When Yirmeyahu [whom Yehovah has appointed] was entered into the dungeon, and into the cabins, and Yirmeyahu [whom Yehovah has appointed] had remained there many days;
17Then Tzidkiyah [Yehovah is righteous] the king sent, and took him out: and the king asked him secretly in his house, and said, Is there [any] word from the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate)? And Yirmeyahu [whom Yehovah has appointed] said, There is: for, said he, youi shall be delivered into the hand of the king of Bavel (to jumble, or a confused medley of sounds; confusion; gate of the deity) (Babylon) [confusion].
18Moreover Yirmeyahu [whom Yehovah has appointed] said unto king Tzidkiyah [Yehovah is righteous], What have I offended against youi, or against youri servants, or against this people, that you2f have put me in prison?
19Where [are] now your prophets which prophesied unto you, saying, The king of Bavel (to jumble, or a confused medley of sounds; confusion; gate of the deity) (Babylon) [confusion] shall not come against you, nor against this land?
20Therefore hear now, I pray youi, O my lord the king: let my supplication, I pray youi, be accepted before youi; that youi cause me not to return to the house of Y’honatan [Yehovah has Given] the scribe, lest I die there.
21Then Tzidkiyah [Yehovah is righteous] the king commanded that they should commit Yirmeyahu [whom Yehovah has appointed] into the court of the prison, and that they should give him daily a piece of bread out of the bakers’ street, until all the bread in the city were spent. Thus Yirmeyahu [whom Yehovah has appointed] remained in the court of the prison.
