Jeremiah 21


21:1 The word which came to Jeremiah from the LORD, when king
 Zedekiah sent to him Pashur the son of Melchiah, and Zephaniah
 the son of Maaseiah the priest, saying,
21:2 Inquire, I pray thee, of the LORD for us; for
 Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon maketh war against us; it may be
 that the LORD will deal with us according to all his wondrous
 works, that he may go up from us.
21:3 Then said Jeremiah to them, Thus shall ye say to Zedekiah:
21:4 Thus saith the LORD God of Israel; Behold, I will turn back
 the weapons of war that [are] in your hands, with which ye
 fight against the king of Babylon, and [against] the Chaldeans,
 who besiege you without the walls, and I will assemble them
 into the midst of this city.
21:5 And I myself will fight against you with an out-stretched
 hand and with a strong arm, even in anger, and in fury, and in
 great wrath.
21:6 And I will smite the inhabitants of this city, both man and
 beast; they shall die by a great pestilence.
21:7 And afterward, saith the LORD, I will deliver Zedekiah king
 of Judah, and his servants, and the people, and such as are
 left in this city from the pestilence, from the sword, and from
 the famine, into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon,
 and into the hand of their enemies, and into the hand of those
 that seek their life; and he shall smite them with the edge of
 the sword; he shall not spare them, neither have pity, nor have
 mercy.
21:8 And to this people thou shalt say, Thus saith the LORD;
 Behold, I set before you the way of life, and the way of death.
21:9 He that abideth in this city shall die by the sword, and by
 the famine, and by the pestilence: but he that goeth out, and
 falleth to the Chaldeans that besiege you, he shall live, and
 his life shall be to him for a prey.
21:10 For I have set my face against this city for evil, and not
 for good, saith the LORD: it shall be given into the hand of
 the king of Babylon, and he shall burn it with fire.
21:11 And concerning the house of the king of Judah, [say], Hear
 ye the word of the LORD;
21:12 O house of David, thus saith the LORD; Execute judgment in
 the morning, and deliver [him that is] made desolate out of the
 hand of the oppressor, lest my fury go out like fire, and burn
 that none can quench [it], because of the evil of your doings.
21:13 Behold, I [am] against thee, O inhabitant of the valley,
 [and] rock of the plain, saith the LORD; who say, Who shall
 come down against us? or who shall enter into our habitations?
21:14 But I will punish you according to the fruit of your
 doings, saith the LORD: and I will kindle a fire in the forest
 thereof, and it shall devour all things around it.
