People of Judah! We have determined that for his words, Jeremiah must be put to death!
But if you kill me, you have murdered, for Hashem sent me
These are not my words-- these are the words of Hashem. Repent and fix yourselves and you shall be forgiven.
As for me-- I am at your mercy. Do what you feel is right.
It's true. Remember the story of Micah, in the days of King Chizkiyahu. He predicted the same things for them that Jeremiah predicts for us! And he wasn't put to death! If we kill Jeremiah, we will be harming ourselves!
Wait. What about Uriah from Kiryat Yarim? He predicted the same things against this city, and the king ordered him killed. He fled to Egypt, but he was hunted down and executed. Which example should we follow?
