Bible: 2 Kings 22:14-20

22:14 So Hilkiah the priest, Ahikam, Acbor, Shaphan, and Asaiah went to Huldah the prophetess, the wife of Shullam son of Tikvah, the son of Harhas, the supervisor of the wardrobe. 1  (She lived in Jerusalem in the Mishneh 2  district.) They stated their business, 3  22:15 and she said to them: “This is what the Lord God of Israel says: ‘Say this to the man who sent you to me: 22:16 This is what the Lord says: ‘I am about to bring disaster on this place and its residents, the details of which are recorded in the scroll which the king of Judah has read. 4  22:17 This will happen because they have abandoned me and offered sacrifices 5  to other gods, angering me with all the idols they have made. 6  My anger will ignite against this place and will not be extinguished!’ 22:18 Say this to the king of Judah, who sent you to seek an oracle from the Lord: “This is what the Lord God of Israel says concerning the words you have heard: 22:19 You displayed a sensitive spirit 7  and humbled yourself before the Lord when you heard how I intended to make this place and its residents into an appalling example of an accursed people. 8  You tore your clothes and wept before me, and I have heard you,’ says the Lord. 22:20 Therefore I will allow you to die and be buried in peace. 9  You will not have to witness 10  all the disaster I will bring on this place.’”’” Then they reported back to the king.
