Jeremiah summons the people (Jer 42:7-42:8)

“At the end of ten days,

The word of Yahweh

Came to Jeremiah.

Then he summoned

Johanan,

The son of Kareah,

All the commanders

Of the forces

Who were with him,

As well as all the people

From the least

To the greatest.”

After 10 days, the word of Yahweh came to Jeremiah. Thus Jeremiah summoned Johanan and all his commanders with him. He called all the people who were in this remnant of Judean people together, from the least to the greatest.   He wanted everyone to know what Yahweh had said.
