Jeremiah 32:1-5

Jeremiah Buys a Field During the Siege

1The word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord ain the tenth year of Zedekiah king of Judah, bwhich was the eighteenth year of Nebuchadnezzar. 2At that time the army of the king of Babylon was besieging Jerusalem, and Jeremiah the prophet cwas shut up in dthe court of the guard that was in the palace of the king of Judah. 3For Zedekiah king of Judah had imprisoned him, saying, “Why do you prophesy and say, ‘Thus says the Lord: eBehold, I am giving this city into the hand of the king of Babylon, and he shall capture it; 4 fZedekiah king of Judah shall not escape out of the hand of the Chaldeans gbut shall surely be given into the hand of the king of Babylon, and shall speak with him face to face and see him eye to eye. 5And hhe shall take Zedekiah to Babylon, and there he shall remain until I visit him, declares the Lord. iThough you fight against the Chaldeans, you shall not succeed’?”
