Jeremiah 38:2-4

2Thus says the  Lord: aHe who stays in this city shall die by the sword, by famine, and by pestilence bbut he who goes out to the Chaldeans shall live. He shall have his life as a prize of war, and live. 3Thus says the  Lord: cThis city shall surely be given into the hand of the army of the king of Babylon and be taken.” 4Then the officials said to the king, dLet this man be put to death, efor he is weakening the hands of the soldiers who are left in this city, and the hands of all the people, by speaking such words to them. For this man is not seeking fthe welfare of this people, but their harm.”
