Jer 37:11-16

Jeremiah Is Imprisoned 11Now when the Chaldean army had withdrawn from Jerusalem at the approach of Pharaoh's army,12Jeremiah set out from Jerusalem to go to the land of Benjamin to receive his share of property among the people there.13When he reached the Benjamin Gate, a sentinel there named Irijah son of Shelemiah son of Hananiah arrested the prophet Jeremiah saying, “You are deserting to the Chaldeans.”14And Jeremiah said, “That is a lie; I am not deserting to the Chaldeans.” But Irijah would not listen to him, and arrested Jeremiah and brought him to the officials.15The officials were enraged at Jeremiah, and they beat him and imprisoned him in the house of the secretary Jonathan, for it had been made a prison.16Thus Jeremiah was put in the cistern house, in the cells, and remained there many days.
