Jeremiah and Baruch write a new scroll (Jer 36:32-36:32)

“Then Jeremiah

Took another scroll.

He gave it

To his secretary Baruch,

The son of Neriah.

He wrote on it,

At Jeremiah’s dictation,

All the words of the scroll

That King Jehoiakim

Of Judah

Had burned in the fire.

Many similar words

Were added to them.”

Jeremiah took a new scroll and gave it to his secretary Baruch. While Jeremiah dictated, Baruch wrote on this scroll all the things that were in the first scroll that King Jehoiakim of Judah had burned. However, they also added more similar words. Many believe that this is the scroll that comes down to us as the first 25 chapters of the current Book of Jeremiah.
