“Yet neither the king,
Nor any of his servants,
All these words,
They did not tear
Even when Elnathan,
Urged the king
Not to burn the scroll,
He would not listen to them.
The king commanded
The king’s son,
The son of Azriel,
The secretary Baruch
With the prophet Jeremiah.
But Yahweh hid them.”
Neither the king of Judah, King Jehoiakim, nor his servants, was alarmed by the words of the scroll. They did not tear their garments as a sign of sorrow or repentance. Instead, the king burned the scroll in its various pieces as mentioned above, despite the protests of some of his senior officials like Elnathan, Delaiah, and Gemariah, who had demanded the first reading, earlier in this chapter. They did not want the king to burn the scroll, but he would not listen to them. Instead, he sent his son Jerahmeel with his friend Seraiah, someone in the royal service, to arrest Baruch and Jeremiah. However, Yahweh hid them, but it is not clear where or how.
