“Then the word of Yahweh
Came to Jeremiah.
‘Send to all the exiles!
Thus says Yahweh
Concerning Shemaiah of Nehelam!
Shemaiah has prophesied to you,
Even though I did not send him.
He has led you
To trust in a lie.
Therefore thus says Yahweh!
I am going to punish
Shemaiah of Nehelam
With his descendants.
He shall not have any one living
Among his people
To see the good
That I am going to do
To my people.
He has talked rebellion
Yahweh then told Jeremiah to utter an oracle against Shemaiah. Jeremiah was to send this message to all the exiles. Shemaiah had prophesied to them without being sent by Yahweh. He led them to trust in his own lies. Therefore Shemaiah was going to be punished, including his descendents. None of them would see the good things that Yahweh had planned for his people. Shemaiah should not have talked rebelliously against Yahweh. He and his family would not see the return to Israel. Shemaiah had said that Jeremiah was a crazy man. Thus Jeremiah was now calling Shemaiah a false prophet.
