diminish not a word

Jeremiah 26

v2

Thus saith the LORD; Stand in the court of the LORD'S house, and speak unto all the cities of Judah, which come to worship in the LORD'S house, all the words that I command thee to speak unto them; diminish not a word:

Jeremiah was willing to speak exactly everything that the Lord told him to, even though he nearly died for it. He didn't make 1 word of the message into anything less than it was supposed to be, even to save his own life. The Lord used others to stand up and speak, to defend him. The Lord was his defense.

v14

As for me, behold, I [am] in your hand: do with me as seemeth good and meet unto you.

We should preach the gospel and preach the word boldly like this, fearing God instead of fearing other people. We shouldn't diminish one word.
