Jeremiah Escapes Death

“After apparently having been released for a time from house arrest in the royal palace, Jeremiah is first imprisoned in a dungeon and then put down into an empty well, before being saved by, of all people, Zedekiah.  One gets the feeling that Zedekiah really does fear God and his prophet after all.  This is somewhat confirmed when Zedekiah approaches Jeremiah secretly to learn what God’s plans are.  Unfortunately, Zedekiah never accepts God’s words.”
