JER 21:1 The word which came unto Jeremiah from the LORD, when king
Zedekiah sent unto him Pashur the son of Melchiah, and Zephaniah the son
of Maaseiah the priest, saying,
JER 21:2 Enquire, I pray thee, of the LORD for us; for Nebuchadrezzar
king of Babylon maketh war against us; if so be that the LORD will deal
with us according to all his wondrous works, that he may go up from us.
JER 21:3 Then said Jeremiah unto them, Thus shall ye say to Zedekiah:
JER 21:4 Thus saith the LORD God of Israel; Behold, I will turn back
the weapons of war that are in your hands, wherewith ye fight against
the king of Babylon, and against the Chaldeans, which besiege you
without the walls, and I will assemble them into the midst of this city.
