The Book of Jeremiah Chapter 21 – New King James Version (NKJV) – Audio Bible

Chapter 21 The word which came to Jeremiah from the Lord when King zedekiah sent to him Pasha the son of melchia and Zephaniah The son of mayasia the priest saying Please inquire of the Lord for us for Nebuchadnezzar King of Babylon makes war Against us Perhaps the Lord will deal with us According to all his wonderful works but The king may go away from us Then Jeremiah said to them Thus you shall say to zedekiah Thus says the Lord God of Israel Behold I will turn back the weapons of war that Are in your hands with which you fight Against the king of Babylon and the Chaldeans who besiege you outside the Walls And I will assemble them in the midst of This city I myself will fight against you With an outstretched hand and with a Strong arm even in anger and fury and Great Wrath I will strike the inhabitants of this City both man and Beast they shall die Of a great pestilence And afterward says the Lord I will deliver zedekiah king of Judah His servants and the people and such as Are left in this city from the Pestilence and The Sword and the famine

Into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar King of Babylon into the hand of their enemies And into the hand of those who seek Their life And he shall strike them with the edge Of the sword He shall not spare them or have pity or Mercy Now you shall say to this people Thus says the Lord Behold I set before you the way of life and the Way of death He who remains in this city shall die by The sword by famine and by pestilence But he who goes out and defects to the Chaldeans who besiege you Shall live and his life shall be as a Prize to him For I have set my face against this city For adversity and not for good says the Lord It shall be given into the hand of the King of Babylon and he shall burn it With fire And concerning the house of the king of Judah say Hear the word of the Lord O House of David Thus says the Lord Execute judgment in the morning And deliver him who is plundered out of The hand of the oppressor Lest my Fury go forth like fire and burn

So that no one can quench it because of The evil of your doings Behold I am against you o inhabitant of The valley and rock of the plane says The Lord Who say Who shall come down against us Or who shall enter our dwellings But I will punish you according to the Fruit of your doings says the Lord I will Kindle a fire in its Forest and It shall devour all things around it
