Jeremiah 37 The Lord warns King Zedekiah 3King Zedekiah sent a message to the prophet Jeremiah. He sent Shelemiah’s son Jehucal, and Maaseiah’s son Zephaniah, the priest, to deliver this message: ‘Please pray to the Lord our God for us.’ 4Jeremiah was a free man at this time. They had not yet put him in prison. He could go where he wanted among the people. 5The army of Pharaoh, king of Egypt, had marched out of Egypt. Babylon’s soldiers who were attacking Jerusalem heard news about that. So they went away from Jerusalem. 6Then the Lord gave this message to the prophet Jeremiah: 7‘The Lord, Israel’s God, says: Go to the king of Judah, who sent you to ask for my help. Tell him, “Pharaoh’s army marched out of Egypt to bring you help. But they will turn back and return to their own land, Egypt. 8Then Babylon’s army will return here. They will attack this city. They will take it for themselves. They will burn it completely.” 9The Lord also says, “Do not deceive yourselves. Do not think that Babylon’s soldiers will go away and leave you alone. They will not go away! 10You might even win the fight against the whole army that is attacking you. There might be only a few of Babylon’s soldiers who remain. You might have hurt them so much that they are lying down in their tents. But those weak men would still get up and attack this city. They would completely burn down this city.” ’ John 12:8 For the poor you always have with you, but you do not always have me.”
