CommentaryJeremiah 38:23 Parallel Commentaries
2 Kings 25:7
They made Zedekiah watch as they slaughtered his sons. Then they gouged out Zedekiah's eyes, bound him in bronze chains, and led him away to Babylon.
Their homes will be turned over to their enemies, as will their fields and their wives. For I will raise my powerful fist against the people of this land," says the LORD.
Why do you insist on dying--you and your people? Why should you choose war, famine, and disease, which the LORD will bring against every nation that refuses to submit to Babylon's king?
King Zedekiah will be captured by the Babylonians and taken to meet the king of Babylon face to face.
Then the Babylonians will come back and capture this city and burn it to the ground.'
But if you refuse to surrender, you will not escape! This city will be handed over to the Babylonians, and they will burn it to the ground.'"
Then Zedekiah said to Jeremiah, "Don't tell anyone you told me this, or you will die!
