Jeremiah 36


36:1 And it came to pass in the fourth year of Jehoiakim the son
 of Josiah king of Judah, [that] this word came to Jeremiah from
 the LORD, saying,
36:2 Take thee a roll of a book, and write in it all the words
 that I have spoken to thee against Israel, and against Judah,
 and against all the nations, from the day I spoke to thee, from
 the days of Josiah, even to this day.
36:3 It may be that the house of Judah will hear all the evil
 which I purpose to do to them; that they may return every man
 from his evil way; that I may forgive their iniquity and their
 sin.
36:4 Then Jeremiah called Baruch the son of Neriah: and Baruch
 wrote from the mouth of Jeremiah all the words of the LORD,
 which he had spoken to him, upon a roll of a book.
36:5 And Jeremiah commanded Baruch, saying, I [am] confined, I
 cannot go into the house of the LORD:
36:6 Therefore go thou and read in the roll, which thou hast
 written from my mouth, the words of the LORD in the ears of the
 people in the LORD'S house upon the day of fasting: and also
 thou shalt read them in the ears of all Judah that come out of
 their cities.
36:7 It may be they will present their supplication before the
 LORD, and will return every one from his evil way: for great
 [is] the anger and the fury that the LORD hath pronounced
 against this people.
36:8 And Baruch the son of Neriah did according to all that
 Jeremiah the prophet commanded him, reading in the book the
 words of the LORD in the LORD'S house.
36:9 And it came to pass in the fifth year of Jehoiakim the son
 of Josiah king of Judah, in the ninth month, [that] they
 proclaimed a fast before the LORD to all the people in
 Jerusalem, and to all the people that came from the cities of
 Judah to Jerusalem.
36:10 Then Baruch read in the book the words of Jeremiah in the
 house of the LORD, in the chamber of Gemariah the son of
 Shaphan the scribe, in the higher court, at the entry of the
 new gate of the LORD'S house, in the ears of all the people.
36:11 When Michaiah the son of Gemariah, the son of Shaphan, had
 heard out of the book all the words of the LORD,
36:12 Then he went down into the king's house, into the scribe's
 chamber: and lo, all the princes sat there, [even] Elishama the
 scribe, and Delaiah the son of Shemaiah, and Elnathan the son
 of Achbor, and Gemariah the son of Shaphan, and Zedekiah the
 son of Hananiah, and all the princes.
36:13 Then Michaiah declared to them all the words that he had
 heard, when Baruch read the book in the ears of the people.
36:14 Therefore all the princes sent Jehudi the son of
 Nethaniah, the son of Shelemiah, the son of Cushi, to Baruch,
 saying, Take in thy hand the roll in which thou hast read in
 the ears of the people, and come. So Baruch the son of Neriah
 took the roll in his hand, and came to them.
36:15 And they said to him, Sit down now, and read it in our
 ears. So Baruch read [it] in their ears.
36:16 Now it came to pass when they had heard all the words,
 they were afraid both one and another, and said to Baruch, We
 will surely tell the king of all these words.
36:17 And they asked Baruch, saying, Tell us now, How didst thou
 write all these words at his mouth?
36:18 Then Baruch answered them, He pronounced all these words
 to me with his mouth, and I wrote [them] with ink in the book.
36:19 Then said the princes to Baruch, Go, hide thyself, thou
 and Jeremiah; and let no man know where ye are.
36:20 And they went in to the king into the court, but they laid
 up the roll in the chamber of Elishama the scribe, and told all
 the words in the ears of the king.
36:21 So the king sent Jehudi to bring the roll: and he took it
 out of the chamber of Elishama, the scribe. And Jehudi read it
 in the ears of the king, and in the ears of all the princes who
 stood beside the king.
36:22 Now the king sat in the winter-house in the ninth month:
 and [there was a fire] on the hearth burning before him.
36:23 And it came to pass, [that] when Jehudi had read three or
 four leaves, he cut it with the scribe's pen-knife, and cast
 [it] into the fire that [was] on the hearth, until all the roll
 was consumed in the fire that [was] on the hearth.
36:24 Yet they were not afraid, nor rent their garments,
 [neither] the king, nor any of his servants that heard all
 these words.
36:25 Nevertheless Elnathan and Delaiah and Gemariah had made
 intercession to the king that he would not burn the roll: but
 he would not hear them.
36:26 But the king commanded Jerahmeel the son of Hammelech, and
 Seraiah the son of Azriel, and Shelemiah the son of Abdeel, to
 take Baruch the scribe and Jeremiah the prophet: but the LORD
 hid them.
36:27 Then the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah, after that the
 king had burned the roll, and the words which Baruch wrote at
 the mouth of Jeremiah, saying,
36:28 Take thee again another roll, and write in it all the
 former words that were in the first roll, which Jehoiakim king
 of Judah hath burned.
36:29 And thou shalt say to Jehoiakim king of Judah, Thus saith
 the LORD; Thou hast burned this roll, saying, Why hast thou
 written therein, saying, The king of Babylon shall certainly
 come and destroy this land, and shall cause to cease from
 thence man and beast?
36:30 Therefore thus saith the LORD concerning Jehoiakim king of
 Judah; He shall have none to sit upon the throne of David: and
 his dead body shall be cast out in the day to the heat, and in
 the night to the frost.
36:31 And I will punish him and his seed and his servants for
 their iniquity; and I will bring upon them, and upon the
 inhabitants of Jerusalem, and upon the men of Judah, all the
 evil that I have pronounced against them; but they hearkened
 not.
36:32 Then Jeremiah took another roll, and gave it to Baruch the
 scribe, the son of Neriah; who wrote therein from the mouth of
 Jeremiah all the words of the book which Jehoiakim king of
 Judah had burned in the fire: and there were besides added to
 them many like words.
