Message concerning Yehudah's last 4 Melekhim
1. Tzedekiyahu (21:1-22:9)
21:1 The word which came to YirmeYahu from ADONAI (יהוה), when melekh Tzidkiyah sent to him Pashur Ben Melchyah, and Zefanyah Ben Maseyah ha kohen, saying,
21:2 Enquire, I pray you, of ADONAI (יהוה) for us; for Nevuchadretzar melekh Bavel maketh war against us; if so be that ADONAI (יהוה) will deal with us according to all his wondrous works, that he may go up from us.
21:3 Then said YirmeYahu to them, Thus shall you say to Tzidkiyah:
21:4 Thus said ADONAI (יהוה) Elohim (אלהים) of Yisra'el:
Hinei, I will turn back the weapons of war that [are] in your hands, wherewith you fight against melekh Bavel, and [against] the Kasdim, which 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 outstretched 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 of a great pestilence.
21:7 And afterward, said ADONAI (יהוה), I will deliver Tzidkiyah melekh Yehudah, and his avadim, 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 Nevuchadretzar melekh Bavel, 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 you shall say,
Thus said ADONAI (יהוה):
Hinei, I set before you the way of life, and the way of death.
21:9 He that abides in this city shall die by the sword, and by the famine, and by the pestilence: but he that goeth out, and falls to the Kasdim 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, said ADONAI (יהוה): it shall be given into the hand of melekh Bavel, and he shall burn it with fire.
21:11 And touching ha bayit melekh Yehudah, [say], Hear you Dvar ADONAI (יהוה);
21:12 O bayit David, thus said ADONAI (יהוה); Execute judgment in the morning, and deliver [him that is] spoiled 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 Hinei, I [am] against you, O inhabitant of the valley, [and] rock of the plain, said ADONAI (יהוה); which 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, said ADONAI (יהוה): and I will kindle a fire in the forest thereof, and it shall devour all things round about it.
