Jeremiah 37:4-6 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

At this time Jeremiah still came and went freely among the people; he had not yet been put into prison.[a] Meanwhile, Pharaoh’s army[b] had set out from Egypt, and when the Chaldeans who were besieging Jerusalem heard this report, they withdrew from the city.

Then the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah the prophet:


  1. 37:4 Put into prison: as described in 32:1–3. Chronologically, the present episode follows 34:1–7.
  2. 37:5 Pharaoh’s army: the force sent by Pharaoh Hophra; when they arrived, the Chaldeans temporarily lifted the siege against Jerusalem (cf. 34:21).
