In the ninthH8671 yearH8141 of ZedekiahH6667 kingH4428 of Judah,H3063 in the tenthH6224 month,H2320 cameH935 NebuchadrezzarH5019 kingH4428 of BabylonH894 and allH3605 his armyH2428 againstH413 Jerusalem,H3389 and they besiegedH6696 it.
And in the eleventhH6240 yearH8141 of Zedekiah,H6667 in the fourthH7243 month,H2320 the ninthH8672 day of the month,H2320 the cityH5892 was brokenH1234 up.
And allH3605 the princesH8269 of the kingH4428 of BabylonH894 cameH935 in, and satH3427 in the middleH8484 gate,H8179 even Nergalsharezer,H5371 Samgarnebo,H5562 Sarsechim,H8310 Rabsaris,H7249 Nergalsharezer,H5371 Rabmag,H7248 with allH3605 the residueH7611 of the princesH8269 of the kingH4428 of Babylon.H894
And it cameH1961 to pass, that whenH834 ZedekiahH6667 the kingH4428 of JudahH3063 sawH7200 them, and allH3605 the menH582 of war,H4421 then they fled,H1272 and wentH3318 forthH3318 out of the cityH5892 by night,H3915 by the wayH1870 of the king'sH4428 garden,H1588 by the gateH8179 betweenH996 the two walls:H2346 and he wentH3318 out the wayH1870 of the plain.H6160
But the Chaldeans'H3778 armyH2428 pursuedH7291 afterH310 them, and overtookH5381 ZedekiahH6667 in the plainsH6160 of Jericho:H3405 and when they had takenH3947 him, they broughtH5927 him up to NebuchadnezzarH5019 kingH4428 of BabylonH894 to RiblahH7247 in the landH776 of Hamath,H2574 where he gaveH1696 judgmentH4941 on him.
Then the kingH4428 of BabylonH894 slewH7819 the sonsH1121 of ZedekiahH6667 in RiblahH7247 before his eyes:H5869 also the kingH4428 of BabylonH894 slewH7819 allH3605 the noblesH2715 of Judah.H3063
Moreover he putH5786 out Zedekiah'sH6667 eyes,H5869 and boundH631 him with chains,H5178 to carryH935 him to Babylon.H894
And the ChaldeansH3778 burnedH8313 the king'sH4428 house,H1004 and the housesH1004 of the people,H5971 with fire,H784 and brokeH5422 downH5422 the wallsH2346 of Jerusalem.H3389
Then NebuzaradanH5018 the captainH7227 of the guardH2876 carriedH1540 away captiveH1540 into BabylonH894 the remnantH3499 of the peopleH5971 that remainedH7604 in the city,H5892 and those that fellH5307 away, that fellH5307 to him, with the restH3499 of the peopleH5971 that remained.H7604
But NebuzaradanH5018 the captain of the guardH2876 leftH7604 of the poorH1800 of the people,H5971 whichH834 had nothing,H3808 H3972 in the landH776 of Judah,H3063 and gaveH5414 them vineyardsH3754 and fieldsH3010 at the sameH1931 time.H3117
Now NebuchadrezzarH5019 kingH4428 of BabylonH894 gave chargeH6680 concerningH5921 JeremiahH3414 to NebuzaradanH5018 the captainH7227 of the guard,H2876 saying,H559
TakeH3947 him, and lookH7760 well to him, and doH6213 him noH408 harm;H7451 but doH6213 to him evenH3651 as he shall sayH1696 to you.
So NebuzaradanH5018 the captainH7227 of the guardH2876 sent,H7971 and Nebushasban,H5021 Rabsaris,H7249 and Nergalsharezer,H5371 Rabmag,H7248 and allH3605 the kingH4428 of Babylon'sH894 princes;H7227
Even they sent,H7971 and tookH3947 JeremiahH3414 out of the courtH2691 of the prison,H4307 and committedH5414 him to GedaliahH1436 the sonH1121 of AhikamH296 the sonH1121 of Shaphan,H8227 that he should carryH3318 him home:H1004 so he dwelledH3427 amongH8432 the people.H5971
Now the wordH1697 of the LORDH3068 cameH1961 to Jeremiah,H3414 while he was shutH6113 up in the courtH2691 of the prison,H4307 saying,H559
GoH1980 and speakH559 to EbedmelechH5663 the Ethiopian,H3569 saying,H559 ThusH3541 saidH559 the LORDH3068 of hosts,H6635 the GodH430 of Israel;H3478 Behold,H2005 I will bringH935 my wordsH1697 on thisH2063 cityH5892 for evil,H7451 and not for good;H2896 and they shall be accomplished in that dayH3117 beforeH6440 you.
But I will deliverH5337 you in that day,H3117 saidH5002 the LORD:H3068 and you shall not be givenH5414 into the handH3027 of the menH582 of whomH834 H6440 you are afraid.H3025
For I will surely deliverH4422 you, and you shall not fallH5307 by the sword,H2719 but your lifeH5315 shall be for a preyH7998 to you: becauseH3588 you have put your trustH982 in me, saidH5002 the LORD.H3068
