Jeremiah is saved (Jer 26:16-26:16)

“Then the officials

With all the people

Said to the priests

As well as the prophets.

‘This man does not deserve

The sentence of death.

He has spoken to us

In the name of Yahweh,

Our God.’”

After the defense of Jeremiah by himself, the royal officials and the rest of the people told the priests and the prophets that Jeremiah did not deserve to be put to death. He had only spoken to them in the name of Yahweh, their God. Let him be!
