Everyone listens to Jeremiah (Jer 26:7-26:7)

“The priests,

The prophets,

All the people

Heard Jeremiah speaking

These words

In the house of Yahweh.”

There is no doubt that both the priests and prophets gathered to hear Jeremiah speak these words in the Temple of Yahweh. The real problem is with all the people. Where would they fit all the people of Judah in this relatively small house of Yahweh? Thus it might have been a sample of all these people.
