Can you imagine being put in prison? In a dungeon? In solitary confinement? For speaking truth.
Obviously Jeremiah comes out a little bit upset–at least that’s the way I read his tone when he asks questions of King Zedekiah. I don’t know what the court of the guard was that Jeremiah was placed in, but surely it was better than solitary confinement.
Anything would be better than being stuck with yourself.
