Jérémie et les rois de Juda, Sédécias et Joaqim

Abstract : From a literary point of view, particularly a narrative one, chapters xxxii-xxxix of Jeremiah, often cut up by the critics into various pericopes, present a beautiful unity of content. An element of this unity is the presence of a repeated scene, namely, the meeting between the king (Zedekia andJoaqim) and the prophet. These repeated scenes reveal that the relationship between king and prophet becomes more and more com plicated and conflict-provoking as the story goes on. Moreover, presenting his story in this way, the narrator increases the suspense about the prophet's destiny and the future of his mission: the welcoming of Yhwh's word by the people.
