39In the ninth year of King Zedekiah of Judah, in the tenth month, King Nebuchadrezzar of Babylon and all his army came against Jerusalem and besieged it;H8671H8141H6667H4428H3063H6224H2320H935H5019H4428H894H2428H3389H6696 2in the eleventh year of Zedekiah, in the fourth month, on the ninth day of the month, a breach was made in the city.H6249H6240H8141H6667H7243H2320H8672H2320H5892H1234 3When Jerusalem was taken, all the officials of the king of Babylon came and sat in the middle gate: Nergal-sharezer, Samgar-nebo, Sarsechim the Rab-saris, Nergal-sharezer the Rab-mag, with all the rest of the officials of the king of Babylon.H8269H4428H894H935H3427H8432H8179H5371H5562H8310H7249H5371H7248H7611H8269H4428H894 4When King Zedekiah of Judah and all the soldiers saw them, they fled, going out of the city at night by way of the king's garden through the gate between the two walls; and they went toward the Arabah.H6667H4428H3063H7200H582H4421H1272H3318H5892H3915H1870H4428H1588H8179H2346H3318H1870H6160 5But the army of the Chaldeans pursued them, and overtook Zedekiah in the plains of Jericho; and when they had taken him, they brought him up to King Nebuchadrezzar of Babylon, at Riblah, in the land of Hamath; and he passed sentence on him.H3778H2428H7291H310H5381H6667H6160H3405H3947H5927H5019H4428H894H7247H776H2574H1696H4941 6The king of Babylon slaughtered the sons of Zedekiah at Riblah before his eyes; also the king of Babylon slaughtered all the nobles of Judah.H4428H894H7819H1121H6667H7247H5869H4428H894H7819H2715H3063 7He put out the eyes of Zedekiah, and bound him in fetters to take him to Babylon.H5786H6667H5869H631H5178H935H894 8The Chaldeans burned the king's house and the houses of the people, and broke down the walls of Jerusalem.H3778H8313H4428H1004H1004H5971H784H5422H2346H3389 9Then Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard exiled to Babylon the rest of the people who were left in the city, those who had deserted to him, and the people who remained.H5018H7227H2876H1540H894H3499H5971H7604H5892H5307H5307H3499H5971H7604 10Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard left in the land of Judah some of the poor people who owned nothing, and gave them vineyards and fields at the same time.H5018H7227H2876H7604H1800H5971H3972H776H3063H5414H3754H3010H3117

Jeremiah, Set Free, Remembers Ebed-melech

11King Nebuchadrezzar of Babylon gave command concerning Jeremiah through Nebuzaradan, the captain of the guard, saying,H5019H4428H894H6680H3414H3027H5018H7227H2876H559 12"Take him, look after him well and do him no harm, but deal with him as he may ask you."H3947H5869H7760H6213H3972H7451H6213H1696 13So Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard, Nebushazban the Rab-saris, Nergal-sharezer the Rab-mag, and all the chief officers of the king of Babylon sentH5018H7227H2876H7971H5021H7249H5371H7248H4428H894H7227 14and took Jeremiah from the court of the guard. They entrusted him to Gedaliah son of Ahikam son of Shaphan to be brought home. So he stayed with his own people.H7971H3947H3414H2691H4307H5414H1436H1121H296H1121H8227H3318H1004H3427H8432H5971 15The word of the LORD came to Jeremiah while he was confined in the court of the guard:H1697H3068H3414H6113H2691H4307H559 16Go and say to Ebed-melech the Ethiopian: Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel: I am going to fulfill my words against this city for evil and not for good, and they shall be accomplished in your presence on that day.H1980H559H5663H3569H559H559H3068H6635H430H3478H935H1697H5892H7451H2896H3117H6440 17But I will save you on that day, says the LORD, and you shall not be handed over to those whom you dread.H5337H3117H5002H3068H5414H3027H582H6440H3016 18For I will surely save you, and you shall not fall by the sword; but you shall have your life as a prize of war, because you have trusted in me, says the LORD.H4422H4422H5307H2719H5315H7998H982H5002H3068
