Jeremiah 26 ©
Jeremiah exhorting the people with severe threats to repentance is apprehended, and indicted before the princes for so doing: his apology: he is acquitted by the example of Micah and Urijah, and the assistance of Ahikam.
Thus saith the LORD; Stand bin the court of the LORD's house, and speak unto all the cities of Judah, which ccome to worship in the LORD's house, dall the words that I command thee to speak unto them; ediminish not a word:
¶Now it came to pass, when Jeremiah had made an end of speaking all that the LORD had commanded him to speak unto all the people, that mthe priests and the prophets and all the people took him, saying, Thou shalt surely die.
Why nhast thou prophesied in the name of the LORD, saying, This house shall be like Shiloh, and this city shall be desolate owithout an inhabitant? pAnd all the people were gathered against Jeremiah qin the house of the LORD.
As for me, behold, xI am in your hand: do with me 3as seemeth good and *meet unto you.
cMicah the Morasthite prophesied in the days of Hezekiah king of Judah, and spake to all the people of Judah, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; dZion shall be plowed like a field, and Jerusalem shall become heaps, and ethe mountain of the house as the high places of a forest.
