The continual failure to listen to Jeremiah (Jer 37:2-37:2)

“But neither he,

Nor his servants,

Nor the people of the land

Listened to

The words of Yahweh

That he spoke

Through the prophet

Jeremiah.”

As usual, King Zedekiah with his servants and the people of Judah did not listen to the words of Yahweh as pronounced via the prophet Jeremiah. Jeremiah was clearly Yahweh’s prophet or mouthpiece to the people of Judah and its king.
