    7. 7. Explanation What did it say?
    8. 8. 11 When the Chaldean army withdrew from Jerusalem because of Pharaoh’s army, 12 Jeremiah started to leave Jerusalem to go to the land of Benjamin to claim his portion there among the people. 13 But when he was at the Benjamin Gate, an officer of the guard was there, whose name was Irijah son of Shelemiah, son of Hananiah, and he apprehended Jeremiah the prophet, saying, “You are deserting to the Chaldeans.” Jeremiah 37:11-13
    9. 9. 14 “That’s a lie,” Jeremiah replied. “I am not deserting to the Chaldeans!” Irijah would not listen to him but apprehended Jeremiah and took him to the officials. 15 The officials were angry at Jeremiah and beat him and placed him in jail in the house of Jonathan the scribe, for it had been made into a prison. 16 So Jeremiah went into a cell in the dungeon and stayed there many days. Jeremiah 37:14-16
    10. 10. 17 King Zedekiah later sent for him and received him, and in his house privately asked him, “Is there a word from the LORD?” “There is,” Jeremiah responded, and he continued, “You will be handed over to the king of Babylon.” Jeremiah 37:17
    11. 11. Inductive Study: What to Look For 1. Why was Jeremiah arrested and detained? What was Jeremiah’s explanation for his actions? (v. 11-12) 1. What did the Jewish officials assume Jeremiah was doing? Do you think this was a reasonable assumption for them to make? Explain. (v.13) 2. Why do you think King Zedekiah wanted to talk to Jeremiah (v.17)? Why do you think he chose to speak to the prophet in private instead of in a public place? 3. Why did Zedekiah keep asking Jeremiah whether there was a word from the Lord, when he rejected the message he had been given before? 4. What risks was Jeremiah taking by continuing to say what God had told him to say? What risks would he have taken by telling the king what he wanted to hear? 5. When has continuing to obey God forced you to weigh risks or consider dangers?
