1 Jeremiah, by promises and threatenings, exhorteth to repentance. 8 He is therefore apprehended, 10 and arraigned. 12 His apology. 16 He is quit in judgment, by the example of Micah, 20 and of Urijah, 24 and by the care of Ahikam.
26:2 Thus, saith Yahweh,Stand thou in the court of the house of Yahweh, and speak unto all the cities of Judah, who are entering in to bow down in the house of Yahweh, all the words, which I have commanded thee to speak unto them,do not thou keep back a word:
26:3 Peradventure, they will hear, and return every man from his wicked, way,and I shall repent as to the calamity which I, am devising to execute upon them, because of the wickedness of their doings:
26:5 To hearken unto the words of my servants the prophets, whom I, am sending unto you, even, betimes, sending, though ye have not hearkened,
26:6 Then I will make this house like Shiloh,And, this city, will I make a contempt, to all the nations of the earth.
26:8 And it came to pass, when Jeremiah had made an end of speaking all that Yahweh had commanded [him] to speak unto all the people, that the priests, and the prophets, and all the people, laid hold of him, sayingThou shalt, surely die!
26:9 Why, hast thou prophesied in the name of Yahweh, saying, Like Shiloh, shall this house become, And, this city, shall be desolate, without inhabitant? And all the people, were gathered together, unto Jeremiah, in the house of Yahweh.
26:11 Then spake the priests and the prophets unto the princes, and unto all the people, saying,Worthy of death, is this man, because he hath prophesied against this city, as ye have heard, with your own ears.
26:14 But, I, behold me! in your hand,do with me as may be good and right in your eyes;
26:15 Only, ye must, know, that, If, ye, do put, me, to death, verily, innocent blood, are ye, laying upon yourselves, and against this city, and against her inhabitants,for, of a truth, did Yahweh send, me unto you, to speak in your ears, all these words.
26:17 Then rose up men, from among the elders of the land, and spake unto all the convocation of the people, saying:
26:18 Micah the Morashtite, was prophesying, in the days of Hezekiah king of Judah,and he spake unto all the people of Judah, saying, Thus, saith Yahweh of hostsZion, as a field, shall be plowed, And, Jerusalem, into heaps of ruins, shall be turned, And, the mountain of the house, [be] like mounds in a jungle,
26:19 Did Hezekiah king of Judah and all Judah, put him to death? Did he not revere Yahweh, and appease the face of Yahweh? And did not Yahweh repent, him, as to the calamity which he had spoken against them? We, therefore, are doing a great wickedness, against our own lives!
26:20 There was, however, a man, prophesying in the name of Yahweh, Urijah, son of Shemaiah, of Keriath-jearim,who prophesied, against this city, and against this land, according to all the words of Jeremiah.

26:22 Then did King Jehoiakim send men to Egypt,even Elnathan son of Achbor, and certain men with him, into Egypt,
26:23 and they brought forth Urijah out of Egypt, and took him in unto King Jehoiakim, who smote him with the sword,and cast out his dead body among the graves of the sons of the people.
26:24 Howbeit, the hand of Ahikam, son of Shaphan, turned out to be with Jeremiah,so as not to give him up into the hand of the people, to put him to death.
