Jeremiah 29:29

_ _ Zephaniah ... read ... in the ears of Jeremiah — He seems to have been less prejudiced against Jeremiah than the others; hence he reads the charge to the prophet, that he should not be condemned without a hearing. This accords with Shemaiah’s imputation against Zephaniah for want of zeal against Jeremiah (Jeremiah 29:26, Jeremiah 29:27). Hence the latter was chosen by King Zedekiah as one of the deputation to Jeremiah (Jeremiah 21:1; Jeremiah 37:3).
