Chapter 36. Now 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 Take a scroll of a book and write on it All the words that I have spoken to you Against Israel against Judah and against All the nations from the day I spoke to You from the days of Josiah even to this Day It may be that the house of Judah will Hear all the adversities which I purpose To bring upon them That everyone may turn from his evil way That I may forgive their iniquity and Their sin Then Jeremiah called Barrack the son of Neriah and Barrack wrote on a scroll of A book at the instruction of Jeremiah All the words of the Lord which he had Spoken to him And Jeremiah commanded Barrack saying I am confined I cannot go into the house Of the Lord You go therefore and read from the Scroll which you have written at my Instruction the words of the Lord in the Hearing of the people in the Lord's House on the day of fasting And you shall also read them in the Hearing of all Judah who come from their Cities It may be that they will present their

Supplication before the Lord and Everyone will turn from his evil way For great is the anger and the Fury that The Lord has pronounced against this People And Barrack the son of neriah did According to all that Jeremiah the Prophet commanded him reading from the Book the words of the Lord in the Lord's House Now 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 who came from the Cities of Judah to Jerusalem Then Barrack read from the book The Words of Jeremiah in the house of the Lord In the chamber of gemariah the Son Of Shafen The Scribe in the upper court at The entry of the new gate of the Lord's House in the hearing of all the people When Michaela the son of gamma Raya the Son of shafen heard all the words of the Lord from the book He then went down to the King's house Into the scribes chamber And there all the princes were sitting Elishima The Scribe delayer the son of Shimaya el Nathan the son of akbor Gemariah the son of shafen zedekiah the Son of hananiah and all the princes

Then Michaela declared to them all the Words that he had heard when Barrack Read the book in the hearing of the People Therefore all the princes sent to hudai The son of nephaniah the son of Shalimar The son of kushai to Barak saying Taking your hand the scroll from which You have read in the hearing of the People and come So Barrack the son of nuriah took the Scroll in his hand and came to them And they said to him Sit down now and read it in our hearing So Barrack read it in their hearing Now it happened when they had heard all The words that they looked in fear from One to another And said to Barrack We will surely tell the king of all These words And they asked Barrack saying tell us Now how did you write all these words at His instruction So Barrack answered them He proclaimed with his mouth all these Words to me and I wrote them with ink in The book Then the princes said to Barrack Go and hide you and Jeremiah and let no One know where you are And they went to the king into the court But they stored the scroll in the Chamber Of illishima The Scribe and told

All the words in the hearing of the king So the king sent to hudai to bring the Scroll and he took it from militiama the Scribes chamber And yehudai read it in the hearing of The king and in the hearing of all the Princes who Stood Beside the king Now the King was sitting in the winter House in the ninth month with a fire Burning on the Hearth before him And it happened when jehudai had read Three or four columns that the king cut It with the scribe's knife and cast it Into the fire that was on the Hearth Until all the scroll was consumed in the Fire that was on the hearth Yet they were not afraid nor did they Tear their garments the king nor any of His servants who heard all these words Nevertheless El Nathan delaya and Gamariah implored the king not to burn The scroll But he would not listen to them And the King commanded geramiel the King's son Saraya the son of Azrael and Shalimia the son of abdiel to seize Barrack The Scribe and Jeremiah the Prophet But the Lord hid them Now after the king had burned the scroll With the words which Barrack had written At the instruction of Jeremiah The word of the Lord came to Jeremiah Saying

Take yet another scroll And write on it all the former words That were in the first scroll which Jehoiah came the king of Judah has Burned And you shall say to jehoiakim King of Judah thus says the Lord You have burned this scroll saying Why have you written in it that the king Of Babylon will certainly come and Destroy this land and cause man and Beast to cease from here Therefore thus says the Lord concerning Jehoiakim king of Judah He shall have no one to sit on the Throne of David And his dead body shall be cast out to The heat of the day and the frost of the Night I will punish him his family and his Servants for their iniquity And I will bring on them on the Inhabitants of Jerusalem and on the men Of Judah all the Doom that I have Pronounced against them But they did not heed Then Jeremiah took another scroll and Gave it to Barrack the Scribe the son of Naraya who wrote on it at the Instruction of Jeremiah all the words of The book which jehoiakim king of Judah Had burned in the fire And besides they were added to them many Similar words
