Then Shephatiah the son of Mattan, and Gedaliah the son of Pashur, and aJucal the son of Shelemiah, and bPashur the son of Malchiah, heard the words that Jeremiah had spoken cunto all the people, saying, 2 Thus saith the Lord, dHe that remaineth in this city shall die by the sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence: dbut he that goeth forth to the Chaldeans shall live; for he shall have his life for a prey, and shall live. 3 Thus saith the Lord, eThis city shall surely be given into the hand of the king of Babylon’s army, fwhich shall take it. 4 Therefore the princes said unto the king, We beseech thee, glet this man be put to death: for thus hhe weakeneth the hands of the men of war that remain in this city, and the hands of all the people, in speaking such words unto them: for this man seeketh not the †welfare of this people, but the hurt. 5 Then Zedekiah the king said, Behold, he is in your hand: for ithe king is not he that can do any thing against you. 6 Then took they Jeremiah, and cast him into kthe dungeon of Malchiah the son ||of Hammelech, that was lin the court of the prison: and they let down Jeremiah with cords. And min the dungeon there was no water, but mire: so Jeremiah nsunk in the mire.
