Much to Pashur’s distaste, sometime later King Zekekiah sent him to inquire of Jeremiah God’s word on their chances against Babylon, since Zedekiah had sort of rebelled, and now the Babylonians were gathering in force. Jeremiah was all, Tell the king that God is not on his side! The Babylonians are totally going to win. If the people in Jerusalem aren’t killed in this war, they will die of disease and starvation. Those that survive will exiled or enslaved. Tell the king to surrender to King Nebuchadnezzar for all our sakes!
