Slaves of Nebuchadnezzar

27 1-2 Not long after Zedekiah became king of Judah,[a] the Lord told me:

Jeremiah, make a wooden yoke[b] with leather straps, and place it on your neck. Then send a message to the kings of Edom, Moab, Ammon, Tyre, and Sidon. Some officials from these countries are in Jerusalem, meeting with Zedekiah. So have them tell their kings that I have said:

I am the All-Powerful Lord God of Israel,
