Jeremiah 38:24-2824Then Zedekiah said to Jeremiah, “Let no one know of these words, and you shall not die. 25If athe officials hear that I have spoken with you and come to you and say to you, ‘Tell us what you said to the king and what the king said to you; hide nothing from us and we will not put you to death,’ 26then you shall say to them, b‘I made a humble plea to the king that he would not send me back to the house of Jonathan to die there.’” 27Then all the officials came to Jeremiah and asked him, and he answered them as the king had instructed him. So they stopped speaking with him, for the conversation had not been overheard. 28And Jeremiah remained cin the court of the guard until the day that Jerusalem was taken.
