begging the king to obey

Jeremiah 38

v20

But Jeremiah said, They shall not deliver [thee]. Obey, I beseech thee, the voice of the LORD, which I speak unto thee: so it shall be well unto thee, and thy soul shall live.

Fear of shame kept the king from doing what the Lord said. Jeremiah couldn't make the king obey, but he begged him to obey.

We should entreat other people to obey the Lord, and we shouldn't be lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God.
