1 In the fourth year of Jehoiakim son of Josiah, king of Judah, this word came to Jeremiah from Yahweh,
Jer 25:1 2Chr 36:5 2Kgs 24:1-2 Jer 35:1 Jer 45:1
2 'Take a scroll and on it write all the words I have spoken to you about Israel, Judah and all the nations, from the day I first spoke to you, in the time of Josiah, until today.
Jer 30:2 Exod 17:14 Jer 1:10 Jer 25:3 Ezek 2:9 Ezra 6:2 Isa 8:1
3 Perhaps when the House of Judah hears about all the disaster I intend to inflict on them, they will turn, each one of them, from their evil behaviour, so that I can forgive their sinful guilt.'
Jer 18:8 Ezek 12:3 Jer 26:3 Acts 3:19 Deut 30:2 Jer 36:7 1Sam 7:3
4 Jeremiah then summoned Baruch son of Neriah, who at his dictation wrote down on the scroll all the words Yahweh had spoken to him.
Jer 32:12 Ezek 2:9 Jer 36:32 Jer 43:3 Isa 8:1 Jer 36:17-18 Jer 36:21
5 Jeremiah then gave Baruch this order, 'As I am prevented from entering the Temple of Yahweh,
Jer 32:2 Jer 33:1 2Cor 11:23 2Tim 2:9 Eph 3:1 Eph 6:20 Heb 11:36
6 you yourself must go and, from the scroll you wrote at my dictation, read all Yahweh's words to the people in his Temple on the day of the fast, and in this way you can read them in the hearing also of all the Judaeans who come in from their towns.
Jer 36:8-9 Acts 27:9 Ezek 2:3-7 Jer 7:2 Jer 18:11 Jer 19:14 Jer 22:2
7 Perhaps their prayers will move Yahweh and they will turn one and all from their evil behaviour, for great is the furious anger with which Yahweh has threatened this people.'
Jer 36:3 2Chr 33:12-13 2Kgs 22:13 2Kgs 22:17 Jer 4:4 Jer 21:5 Lam 4:11
8 Baruch son of Neriah duly carried out the order that the prophet Jeremiah had given him, to read all Yahweh's words from the book in his Temple.
Jer 1:17 1Cor 16:10 Jer 36:4 Luke 4:16-30 Matt 16:24 Neh 8:3 Phil 2:19-22
9 Now, in the fifth year of Jehoiakim son of Josiah, king of Judah, in the ninth month, all the people of Jerusalem and all the people who could get to Jerusalem from the towns of Judah were summoned to a fast before Yahweh.
2Chr 20:3 Esth 4:16 Jer 36:22 Jonah 3:5 Isa 58:1-3 Jer 36:1 Joel 1:13
10 Baruch then read Jeremiah's words from the book; this happened in the room of Gemariah son of the scribe Shaphan, in the upper court at the entry of the New Gate of the Temple of Yahweh, where all the people could hear.
Jer 36:11 Jer 26:10 Jer 52:25 2Sam 8:17 Jer 35:4 Jer 36:25 2Kgs 15:35
11 Micaiah son of Gemariah, son of Shaphan, having heard all Yahweh's words read from the book,
2Chr 34:20 2Kgs 22:12-14 2Kgs 25:22 Jer 36:10
12 went down to the royal palace, to the scribe's room. All the chief men were in session: the scribe Elishama, Delaiah son of Shemaiah, Elnathan son of Achbor, Gemariah son of Shaphan, Zedekiah son of Hananiah and all the other chief men;
Jer 26:22 2Kgs 22:12 Jer 36:25 Jer 41:1 2Kgs 22:3 2Kgs 22:14 2Kgs 24:8
13 and to them Micaiah reported all the words he heard as Baruch was reading the book aloud to the people.
2Kgs 22:10 2Chr 34:16-18 2Chr 34:24 2Kgs 22:19 Jonah 3:6
14 The chief men then by common consent sent Jehudi son of Netaniah to Baruch, with Shelemiah son of Cushi, to say, 'Come, and bring the scroll with you which you have been reading to the people.'
Jer 36:2 2Kgs 25:23 Ezek 2:6-7 Jer 36:21 Jer 40:8 Jer 41:1-2 Jer 41:16
15 Bringing the scroll with him, Baruch son of Neriah appeared before them. 'Sit down,' they said, 'and read it out.' So Baruch read it to them.
16 Having heard all the words they turned to one another in alarm and said to Baruch, 'We must certainly inform the king of this.'
Amos 7:10-11 Jer 13:18 Jer 36:24 Acts 24:25-26 Jer 38:1-4
17 They then questioned Baruch, 'Tell us', they said, 'how you came to write all these words.'
John 9:15 John 9:10-11 John 9:26-27
18 'Jeremiah dictated them all to me,' Baruch replied, 'and I wrote them down in ink in this book.'
Jer 36:4 Jer 36:2 Jer 43:2-3 Prov 26:4-5
19 The chief men said to Baruch, 'You and Jeremiah had better go into hiding; and do not tell anyone where you are.'
1Kgs 17:3 1Kgs 18:4 1Kgs 18:10 Jer 26:20-24 Jer 36:26 2Chr 25:15 Acts 5:40
20 Whereupon they went off to the king in the palace court, depositing the scroll in the room of the scribe Elishama. They then informed the king of the whole affair.
Jer 36:12 Jer 36:21
21 The king sent Jehudi for the scroll, and he brought it from the room of the scribe Elishama and read it to the king and all the chief men standing round the king.
2Kgs 22:10 2Chr 34:18 Ezek 2:4-5 Jer 23:28 Jer 26:2 Jer 36:15
22 The king was sitting in his winter apartments -- it was the ninth month -- with a fire burning in a brazier in front of him.
Amos 3:15 Jer 3:20 Jer 22:14-16 Jer 36:9
23 Each time Jehudi had read three or four columns, the king cut them off with a scribe's knife and threw them into the fire in the brazier until the whole of the scroll had been burnt in the brazier fire.
1Kgs 22:8 1Kgs 22:27 Isa 5:18-19 Isa 28:14-15 Prov 1:30 Prov 13:13 Prov 19:21
24 But in spite of hearing all these words, neither the king nor any of his courtiers took alarm or tore their clothes;
Jer 36:16 Ps 36:1 1Kgs 21:27 2Kgs 19:1-2 Isa 36:22-1 Jonah 3:6 Ps 64:5
25 and although Elnathan and Delaiah and Gemariah had urged the king not to burn the scroll he would not listen to them,
Acts 5:34-39 Gen 37:22 Jer 36:12 Gen 37:26-28 Jer 13:15-17 Jer 26:22 Matt 27:4
26 but ordered the king's son Jerahmeel and Seraiah son of Azriel and Shelemiah son of Abdeel to arrest the scribe Baruch and the prophet Jeremiah. But Yahweh had hidden them.
1Kgs 19:1-3 1Kgs 19:10 1Kgs 19:14 Ps 91:1 1Kgs 17:3 1Kgs 17:9 1Kgs 18:4
27 Then the word of Yahweh came to Jeremiah, after the king had burnt the scroll containing the words Baruch had written at Jeremiah's dictation,
28 'Take another scroll and write down all the words that were written on the first scroll burnt by Jehoiakim king of Judah.
Zech 1:5-6 2Tim 2:13 Jer 28:13-14 Jer 44:28 Job 23:13 Matt 24:35
29 And as regards Jehoiakim king of Judah, you are to say, "Yahweh says this: You have burnt that scroll, saying: Why have you written down: The king of Babylon will certainly come and lay this country waste and leave it without human or animal?
Isa 30:10 Jer 26:9 Deut 29:19 Isa 29:21 Isa 45:9 Jer 32:3 Job 15:24
30 So, this is what Yahweh says about Jehoiakim king of Judah: He will have no one to occupy the throne of David, and his corpse will be tossed out to the heat of the day and the frost of the night.
Jer 22:30 2Kgs 24:12-15 Gen 31:40 Jer 22:18-19
31 I shall punish him, his offspring and his courtiers for their guilt; on them, on the citizens of Jerusalem and on the people of Judah I shall bring the total disaster which I had decreed for them but to which they have paid no attention."
Prov 29:1 Jer 19:15 Jer 23:34 Jer 35:17 Deut 28:15-68 Jer 11:8 Jer 17:18
32 Jeremiah then took another scroll and gave it to the scribe Baruch son of Neriah, who in it at Jeremiah's dictation wrote all the words of the book that Jehoiakim king of Judah had burnt, with many similar words in addition.
