The Fall of Jerusalem and the Capture of Zedekiah

39This is how Jerusalem was captured: In the tenth month of the ninth year of the reign of Zedekiah king of Judah, Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon and all his army came to Jerusalem and laid siege to it.H8671H8141H6667H4428H3063H6224H2320H935H5019H4428H894H2428H3389H6696 2On the ninth day of the fourth month, in the eleventh year of the reign of Zedekiah, the wall of the city was breached.H6249H6240H8141H6667H7243H2320H8672H2320H5892H1234 3All the officials of the king of Babylon came and sat in the Middle Gate, including Nergal-sarri-usur, governor of Sinmagir, Nabu-sarrussu-ukin the high official, Nergal-sarri-user, the chief official, and all the rest of the officials of the king of Babylon.H8269H4428H894H935H3427H8432H8179H5371H5562H8310H7249H5371H7248H7611H8269H4428H894 4When Zedekiah king of Judah and all the soldiers saw them, they fled and went out of the city at night by way of the king's garden through the gate between the two walls. Then he went out on the road toward the Arabah.H6667H4428H3063H7200H582H4421H1272H3318H5892H3915H1870H4428H1588H8179H2346H3318H1870H6160 5The Chaldean army pursued them and overtook Zedekiah on the plains of Jericho. When they seized him they brought him to Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon at Riblah in the land of Hamath, and he passed judgment on him.H3778H2428H7291H310H5381H6667H6160H3405H3947H5927H5019H4428H894H7247H776H2574H1696H4941 6At Riblah, the king of Babylon executed Zedekiah's sons right before his eyes. He also executed all the nobles of Judah.H4428H894H7819H1121H6667H7247H5869H4428H894H7819H2715H3063 7Then he put out Zedekiah's eyes and bound him with bronze fetters to take him to Babylon.H5786H6667H5869H631H5178H935H894 8The Chaldeans burned the palace and the houses of the people with fire, and they broke down the walls of Jerusalem.H3778H8313H4428H1004H1004H5971H784H5422H2346H3389 9Nebuzaradan, the captain of the Babylonian guard, took into exile in Babylon the rest of the people who remained in the city, those who had deserted to Nebuchadnezzar, and the rest of the people who remained.H5018H7227H2876H1540H894H3499H5971H7604H5892H5307H5307H3499H5971H7604 10Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard left in the land of Judah some of the poor people who did not have anything, and he gave them vineyards and fields on that day.H5018H7227H2876H7604H1800H5971H3972H776H3063H5414H3754H3010H3117

Jeremiah’s Release from Prison

11Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon gave orders concerning Jeremiah through Nebuzaradan, the captain of the guard:H5019H4428H894H6680H3414H3027H5018H7227H2876H559 12"Take him, look after him, and don't do anything to harm him. Rather, do for him whatever he tells you."H3947H5869H7760H6213H3972H7451H6213H1696 13So Nebuzaradan, the captain of the guard, Nebushazban, the high official, Nergal-sar-ezer, the chief official, and all the officials of the king of Babylon sent for Jeremiah.H5018H7227H2876H7971H5021H7249H5371H7248H4428H894H7227 14They sent for Jeremiah and took him from the courtyard of the guard. They handed him over to Ahikam's son Gedaliah, the grandson of Shaphan, to take him home. So he remained among the people.H7971H3947H3414H2691H4307H5414H1436H1121H296H1121H8227H3318H1004H3427H8432H5971

Ebed-melech Rewarded

15The word of the Lord came to Jeremiah while he was confined in the courtyard of the guard:H1697H3068H3414H6113H2691H4307H559 16"Go and speak to Ebed-melech the Ethiopian: 'This is what the Lord of the Heavenly Armies, the God of Israel, says: "Look, I'm going to fulfill my promise against this city for disaster rather than for good, and on that day it will happen before your eyes.H1980H559H5663H3569H559H559H3068H6635H430H3478H935H1697H5892H7451H2896H3117H6440 17But I'll deliver you on that day," declares the Lord. "You won't be given into the hands of the men you fear.H5337H3117H5002H3068H5414H3027H582H6440H3016 18For I'll surely deliver you, and you won't fall by the sword. Your life will be spared because you trusted me," declares the Lord.'"3917H4422H4422H5307H2719H5315H7998H982H5002H3068
