The officials go to the king (Jer 36:20-36:20)

“Leaving the scroll

In the chamber

Of Elishama,

The secretary,

The officials went

To the court

Of the king.

They reported

All the words

To the king.”

These royal officials then went to the royal court to tell the king what had happened. They left the scroll in the chamber of Elishama, the secretary, where Baruch had brought the scroll to read it to them. Thus they did not bring the actual scroll to the king, but only a report about the scroll.
