Jeremiah 21:1-2

King Zedekiah asks the Lord for help.

1 King Zedekiah sent Pashhur, son of Malkijah, and the priest Zephaniah, son of Maaseiah, to Jeremiah.

2 ‘Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, is attacking us,’ they said.

‘Ask the Lord for us if he will do something great for us. He did many good things for us before now. Perhaps he will cause Nebuchadnezzar to go away.’

21:2Nebuchadnezzar had made Zedekiah king.
