19 Did Hezekiah and all Jadah put him at all to Death! did he not Fear the Lord, and Besouqht the Lord, and the Lord repented him of the Evil which he had pronounced against them i Thus might we procure great Evil against our Souls.

It And Jehoukim the King sent Men into Egypt.

13 And they set forth Urijah out of Egypt, and brought him unto Jehoiakim, who Slew him, and cast his dead Body into the Grave of the common People.

24 Nevertheless, the Hand of Ahikam was with Jeremiah, that they should not put him to Death.

Jtr. Xxivu t And in the fouith Tear of Jchoiakim, this Word came ui»* to Jeremiah from the Lord, saying,

I Take thee a Roll of a Book, and write therein all the Words that I hive Spoken unto thee against Israel, and against Judah, aud against all the Nations, from the Day 1 ipake unto thee, from the Days of Jofiah, even unto this Day.

j It may be that the House of Judah will hear all the Evil which I purpose to do unto them; that they may return every Man from his Evil Way, that I may forgive their Iniquity and their Sin.

4 Then Jeremiah called Baiuch, who wrote all the Words of the Lord, which he had spoken unto him, upon a Roll of a Book.

5 And Jeremiah commanded Baiuch, saying, 1 am (hut up, I cannot go into the House of the Lord.

8 Therefore go thou and read in the Roll the Words of the Lord in the Eats of the People in the Lord's House upon the Fasting day.

7 It may be they will present their Supplication before the Lord, and will return every one from his Evil Way/j for great is the Anoer and the Furt that the Lord hath pronounced against this People.

t And Baruch did according to all that Jeremiah the Prophet commanded him, reading in die Book the Words of the Lord in the Lord's House.

9 And in the fifth Tear of Jehoiakim they proclaimed a Fast before the Lord.

10 Then read Baruch the Words of Jeremiah in the House of the Lord. it When Michaiah had heard out of the Boos all the Words of the

Lord,

12 Then he went down into the King's House, into the Scribes Chamber, and lo, all the Princes (at there.

11 Then Michaiah declared unio them all the Words that he had heard. 14 Therefore all the Princes sent Jchudi unto Baruch, saying, Take la

thine Hand the Roll.

i{ And rhey said unto him, Read it. So Baiuch read it.

i5 When they had beard all the Words, rhey were Afraid, and said unto Baruch, We will surely tell the King of all these Words.

17 And they asked Baruch, saying. Tell us now, how didst thou write all these Words at his Mouth?

1I Then Biruch answered them, He pronounced all these Words unto me, and 1 wrote them.

T9 Then said the Princes onto Baruch, Go hide thee, thou and Jeremiah, and let no Man know where ye be.

10 And they went in to the King into the Court, but they laid up th# Ron in the Chamber of Elilhcma the Sciibe, and told all the Words in the Eats of the King.

21 So the King sent Jehudi to set the Ron, and Jehndi read it in the Eats of the King, and in the Ears of all the Princes which stood befide the King.

14 ret the/ were not Afraid, nor rent their Garments, neither the King, net any of bis Servants that heard all these Woriis.

16 But the King commanded Jerahmeel, and Seraiah, and Shelamiab, to rakeBatuch the Sciibe, and Jeremiah the Prophet; but the Lord Bio them.

17 Then the Word of the Lord came to Jeremiah, saying,

zl Take thee again another Ron, and write in it all the former Words that were in the first Ron.

29 And thou shalt say to Jehoiakim, Thus faith the Lord, Thou hast burnt this Ron, saying, Why hast thou written, saying. The King of Babylon shall certainly come and destioy this Land, and Bull cause to cease from thence Man and Beast i

jo Therefore thus saith the Lord of Jehoiakim King of Judab, He shall have none ro fit upon the Throne of David, and his dead Body shall be •cast our in the Day to the Heat, and in the Night to the Frost.

'- "WofcD1 Word of the Lord, which he spake by his Servants the Prophets.

. 3 Surely at the Commandment of the Lord came this upon Judah, to remove them out of his fight for the Sins of Manasseh, according to all that he did.

4 And also for the Innocent Blood that he shed (for he filled Jerusalem with innocent Blood) which the Lord would not pardon.

5 Now the rest of the Acts of Jehoiakim, and his Abominations, and all that he did, are they not written in the Book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Judah?

6 So Jehoiakim slept with his Fathers: and Jehoiachin his Son reigned in his stead.
