Yirmiyahu stands outside the gates of the Beit Hamikdash in order to plea with the nation to mend their ways. He is trying to reach the people who come to the Beit Hamikdash and give a Korban asa way fo justifying their sins, canceling them out in a way, or else you will be exiled.כֹּֽה־אָמַ֞ר יְהוָ֤ה צְבָאוֹת֙ אֱלֹהֵ֣י יִשְׂרָאֵ֔ל הֵיטִ֥יבוּ דַרְכֵיכֶ֖ם וּמַֽעַלְלֵיכֶ֑ם וַאֲשַׁכְּנָ֣ה אֶתְכֶ֔ם בַּמָּק֥וֹם הַזֶּֽה׃
גֵּ֣ר יָת֤וֹם וְאַלְמָנָה֙ לֹ֣א תַֽעֲשֹׁ֔קוּ וְדָ֣ם נָקִ֔י אַֽל־תִּשְׁפְּכ֖וּ בַּמָּק֣וֹם הַזֶּ֑ה וְאַחֲרֵ֨י אֱלֹהִ֧ים אֲחֵרִ֛ים לֹ֥א תֵלְכ֖וּ לְרַ֥ע לָכֶֽם in order for hashem to not destroy them, Bnie Yisrael muststop opressing the vulnerable, not just assume their 'safe' because they give korbanot.
It was Hashem who has sent me, to tell you this new and change your ways, but I am in your hands, do what you think is right
Kill him!! he is speaking a false prophecy, the Beit Hamikdash has never been destroyed before!!!
Hashem tells the nation of they do not mend their ways of Avodah Zarah, on turning their back on Him, he will do to the Beit Hamikdash now as he did to Shiloh before - destroy it and then scatter the nation.כִּ֣י לְכוּ־נָ֗א אֶל־מְקוֹמִי֙ אֲשֶׁ֣ר בְּשִׁיל֔וֹ אֲשֶׁ֨ר שִׁכַּ֧נְתִּֽי שְׁמִ֛י שָׁ֖ם בָּרִֽאשׁוֹנָ֑ה וּרְאוּ֙ אֵ֣ת אֲשֶׁר־עָשִׂ֣יתִי ל֔וֹ מִפְּנֵ֕י רָעַ֖ת עַמִּ֥י יִשְׂרָאֵֽל׃
He does not deserve to die, He speaks for Hashem. Remember Michah?! Remember Uriah?!
come with me!!!
הַבָּנִ֞ים מְלַקְּטִ֣ים עֵצִ֗ים וְהָֽאָבוֹת֙ מְבַעֲרִ֣ים אֶת־הָאֵ֔שׁ וְהַנָּשִׁ֖ים לָשׁ֣וֹת בָּצֵ֑ק לַעֲשׂ֨וֹת כַּוָּנִ֜ים לִמְלֶ֣כֶת הַשָּׁמַ֗יִם וְהַסֵּ֤ךְ נְסָכִים֙ לֵאלֹהִ֣ים אֲחֵרִ֔ים לְמַ֖עַן הַכְעִסֵֽנִי׃ people would preform physcial actions, in public, without shame, just to vex Hashem. they would do it as a family, it became a whole affiar, even when it was a simpel task. Avodah Zarah became an activity, which angered Hashem. The nation was not listening, they were going feel Hashem's wrath.
The Priests and Officials, along with the people are angry with Yirmiyahu and threaten to kill him for what he has said about their doom.However Yimiryahu defense himself and pleads with the nation to take action. יֹּ֨אמְר֜וּ הַכֹּהֲנִ֤ים וְהַנְּבִאִים֙ אֶל־הַשָּׂרִ֔ים וְאֶל־כָּל־הָעָ֖ם לֵאמֹ֑ר מִשְׁפַּט־מָ֙וֶת֙ לָאִ֣ישׁ הַזֶּ֔ה כִּ֤י נִבָּא֙ אֶל־הָעִ֣יר הַזֹּ֔את כַּאֲשֶׁ֥ר שְׁמַעְתֶּ֖ם בְּאָזְנֵיכֶֽם׃
The elders and officials say not to kill Yimriyahu for he speak as a messenger of Hashhem, and that he does not deserve to die for what he has said. they bring up stories of people like Micah and Uriah who have made similar claims and what happened to them. They used these as case precedents. Ahikam came to protect Yirmiyahu from execution. וַיֹּאמְר֤וּ הַשָּׂרִים֙ וְכָל־הָעָ֔ם אֶל־הַכֹּהֲנִ֖ים וְאֶל־הַנְּבִיאִ֑ים אֵין־לָאִ֤ישׁ הַזֶּה֙ מִשְׁפַּט־מָ֔וֶת כִּ֗י בְּשֵׁ֛ם יְהוָ֥ה אֱלֹהֵ֖ינוּ דִּבֶּ֥ר אֵלֵֽינוּ׃
