Jesus, Savior from All Troubles

Then Jeremiah came back from Topheth, where the LORD had sent him to prophesy, and he stood in the courtyard of the House of the LORD and said to all the people: “This is what the LORD of Armies, the God of Israel, says. I will certainly bring on this city and on all its towns every disaster that I have pronounced against it, because they have become stiff-necked, refusing to hear my words.” Now Pashhur the priest, the son of Immer and the chief officer in the House of the LORD, heard Jeremiah prophesying about these things. Pashhur ordered that Jeremiah the prophet be beaten, and he put him in the stocks at the Upper Benjamin Gate in the House of the LORD. The next day when Pashhur released him from the stocks, Jeremiah said to him, “The LORD does not call you Pashhur, but Magor-Missabib (which means, “Terror on Every Side”), for this is what the LORD says: I will certainly make you a terror to yourself and to all your friends. They will fall by the sword of their enemies before your very eyes. I will hand Judah over to the king of Babylon. He will carry the people captive to Babylon, and he will kill them with the sword. Also, the riches of this city, all its property, and all the treasures of the kings of Judah—I will give it all away into the hands of their enemies. They will plunder them, seize them, and carry them off to Babylon. As for you, Pashhur, and all who live in your house, you will go into exile. You will go to Babylon! You will die there, and you will be buried there, you and all your friends to whom you have prophesied falsely.”
