Chapter 38

  1. 1. Then Shephatiah
    H8203
    the son
    H1121
    of Mattan,
    H4977
    and Gedaliah
    H1436
    the son
    H1121
    of Pashur,
    H6583
    and Jucal
    H3116
    the son
    H1121
    of Shelemiah,
    H8018
    and Pashur
    H6583
    the son
    H1121
    of Malchiah,
    H4441
    heard
    H8085
    the words
    H1697
    that Jeremiah
    H3414
    had spoken
    H1696
    unto all the people,
    H5971
    saying,
    H559
  2. 2. Thus saith
    H559
    the LORD,
    H3068
    He that remaineth
    H3427
    in this city
    H5892
    shall die
    H4191
    by the sword,
    H2719
    by the famine,
    H7458
    and by the pestilence:
    H1698
    but he that goeth forth
    H3318
    to the Chaldeans
    H3778
    shall live;
    H2421
    for he shall have his life
    H5315
    for a prey,
    H7998
    and shall live.
    H2421
    H2425
  3. 3. Thus saith
    H559
    the LORD,
    H3068
    This city
    H5892
    shall surely
    H5414
    be given
    H5414
    into the hand
    H3027
    of the king
    H4428
    of Babylon's
    H894
    army,
    H2428
    which shall take
    H3920
    it.
  4. 4. Therefore the princes
    H8269
    said
    H559
    unto the king,
    H4428
    We beseech thee, let this man
    H376
    be put to death:
    H4191
    for thus
    H3651
    he weakeneth
    H7503
    the hands
    H3027
    of the men
    H582
    of war
    H4421
    that remain
    H7604
    in this city,
    H5892
    and the hands
    H3027
    of all the people,
    H5971
    in speaking
    H1696
    such words
    H1697
    unto them: for this man
    H376
    seeketh
    H1875
    not the welfare
    H7965
    of this people,
    H5971
    but the hurt.
    H7451
  5. 5. Then Zedekiah
    H6667
    the king
    H4428
    said,
    H559
    Behold, he is in your hand:
    H3027
    for the king
    H4428
    is not he that can
    H3201
    do any thing
    H1697
    against you.
  6. 6. Then took
    H3947
    they Jeremiah,
    H3414
    and cast
    H7993
    him into the dungeon
    H953
    of Malchiah
    H4441
    the son
    H1121
    of Hammelech,
    H4428
    that was in the court
    H2691
    of the prison:
    H4307
    and they let down
    H7971
    Jeremiah
    H3414
    with cords.
    H2256
    And in the dungeon
    H953
    there was no water,
    H4325
    but mire:
    H2916
    so Jeremiah
    H3414
    sunk
    H2883
    in the mire.
    H2916
  7. 7. Now when Ebedmelech
    H5663
    the Ethiopian,
    H3569
    one
    H376
    of the eunuchs
    H5631
    which was in the king's
    H4428
    house,
    H1004
    heard
    H8085
    that they had put
    H5414
    Jeremiah
    H3414
    in the dungeon;
    H953
    the king
    H4428
    then sitting
    H3427
    in the gate
    H8179
    of Benjamin;
    H1144
  8. 8. Ebedmelech
    H5663
    went forth
    H3318
    out of the king's
    H4428
    house,
    H1004
    and spake
    H1696
    to the king,
    H4428
    saying,
    H559
  9. 9. My lord
    H113
    the king,
    H4428
    these men
    H582
    have done evil
    H7489
    in all that they have done
    H6213
    to Jeremiah
    H3414
    the prophet,
    H5030
    whom they have cast
    H7993
    into the dungeon;
    H953
    and he is like to die
    H4191
    for
    H6440
    hunger
    H7458
    in the place
    H8478
    where he is: for there is no more bread
    H3899
    in the city.
    H5892
  10. 10. Then the king
    H4428
    commanded
    H6680
    Ebedmelech
    H5663
    the Ethiopian,
    H3569
    saying,
    H559
    Take
    H3947
    from hence thirty
    H7970
    men
    H582
    with thee,
    H3027
    and take up
    H5927
    Jeremiah
    H3414
    the prophet
    H5030
    out of the dungeon,
    H953
    before he die.
    H4191
  11. 11. So Ebedmelech
    H5663
    took
    H3947
    the men
    H582
    with him,
    H3027
    and went
    H935
    into the house
    H1004
    of the king
    H4428
    under the treasury,
    H214
    and took
    H3947
    thence old
    H1094
    cast clouts
    H5499
    and old
    H1094
    rotten rags,
    H4418
    and let them down
    H7971
    by cords
    H2256
    into the dungeon
    H953
    to Jeremiah.
    H3414
  12. 12. And Ebedmelech
    H5663
    the Ethiopian
    H3569
    said
    H559
    unto Jeremiah,
    H3414
    Put
    H7760
    now these old
    H1094
    cast clouts
    H5499
    and rotten rags
    H4418
    under thine armholes
    H3027
    under
    H679
    the cords.
    H2256
    And Jeremiah
    H3414
    did
    H6213
    so.
  13. 13. So they drew up
    H4900
    Jeremiah
    H3414
    with cords,
    H2256
    and took him up
    H5927
    out of the dungeon:
    H953
    and Jeremiah
    H3414
    remained
    H3427
    in the court
    H2691
    of the prison.
    H4307
  14. 14. Then Zedekiah
    H6667
    the king
    H4428
    sent,
    H7971
    and took
    H3947
    Jeremiah
    H3414
    the prophet
    H5030
    unto him into the third
    H7992
    entry
    H3996
    that is in the house
    H1004
    of the LORD:
    H3068
    and the king
    H4428
    said
    H559
    unto Jeremiah,
    H3414
    I will ask
    H7592
    thee a thing;
    H1697
    hide
    H3582
    nothing from me.
  15. 15. Then Jeremiah
    H3414
    said
    H559
    unto Zedekiah,
    H6667
    If I declare
    H5046
    it unto thee, wilt thou not surely
    H4191
    put me to death?
    H4191
    and if I give thee counsel,
    H3289
    wilt thou not hearken
    H8085
    unto me?
  16. 16. So Zedekiah
    H6667
    the king
    H4428
    sware
    H7650
    secretly
    H5643
    unto Jeremiah,
    H3414
    saying,
    H559
    As the LORD
    H3068
    liveth,
    H2416
    that made
    H6213
    us this soul,
    H5315
    I will not put thee to death,
    H4191
    neither will I give
    H5414
    thee into the hand
    H3027
    of these men
    H582
    that seek
    H1245
    thy life.
    H5315
  17. 17. Then said
    H559
    Jeremiah
    H3414
    unto Zedekiah,
    H6667
    Thus saith
    H559
    the LORD,
    H3068
    the God
    H430
    of hosts,
    H6635
    the God
    H430
    of Israel;
    H3478
    If thou wilt assuredly
    H3318
    go forth
    H3318
    unto the king
    H4428
    of Babylon's
    H894
    princes,
    H8269
    then thy soul
    H5315
    shall live,
    H2421
    and this city
    H5892
    shall not be burned
    H8313
    with fire;
    H784
    and thou shalt live,
    H2421
    and thine house:
    H1004
  18. 18. But if thou wilt not go forth
    H3318
    to the king
    H4428
    of Babylon's
    H894
    princes,
    H8269
    then shall this city
    H5892
    be given
    H5414
    into the hand
    H3027
    of the Chaldeans,
    H3778
    and they shall burn
    H8313
    it with fire,
    H784
    and thou shalt not escape out
    H4422
    of their hand.
    H3027
  19. 19. And Zedekiah
    H6667
    the king
    H4428
    said
    H559
    unto Jeremiah,
    H3414
    I am afraid
    H1672
    of the Jews
    H3064
    that are fallen
    H5307
    to the Chaldeans,
    H3778
    lest they deliver
    H5414
    me into their hand,
    H3027
    and they mock
    H5953
    me.
  20. 20. But Jeremiah
    H3414
    said,
    H559
    They shall not deliver
    H5414
    thee. Obey,
    H8085
    I beseech thee, the voice
    H6963
    of the LORD,
    H3068
    which I speak
    H1696
    unto thee: so it shall be well
    H3190
    unto thee, and thy soul
    H5315
    shall live.
    H2421
  21. 21. But if thou refuse
    H3986
    to go forth,
    H3318
    this is the word
    H1697
    that the LORD
    H3068
    hath shewed
    H7200
    me:
  22. 22. And, behold, all the women
    H802
    that are left
    H7604
    in the king
    H4428
    of Judah's
    H3063
    house
    H1004
    shall be brought forth
    H3318
    to the king
    H4428
    of Babylon's
    H894
    princes,
    H8269
    and those women shall say,
    H559
    Thy friends
    H7965
    have
    H582
    set thee on,
    H5496
    and have prevailed
    H3201
    against thee: thy feet
    H7272
    are sunk
    H2883
    in the mire,
    H1206
    and they are turned away
    H5472
    back.
    H268
  23. 23. So they shall bring out
    H3318
    all thy wives
    H802
    and thy children
    H1121
    to the Chaldeans:
    H3778
    and thou shalt not escape out
    H4422
    of their hand,
    H3027
    but shalt be taken
    H8610
    by the hand
    H3027
    of the king
    H4428
    of Babylon:
    H894
    and thou shalt cause this city
    H5892
    to be burned
    H8313
    with fire.
    H784
  24. 24. Then said
    H559
    Zedekiah
    H6667
    unto Jeremiah,
    H3414
    Let no man
    H376
    know
    H3045
    of these words,
    H1697
    and thou shalt not die.
    H4191
  25. 25. But if the princes
    H8269
    hear
    H8085
    that I have talked
    H1696
    with thee, and they come
    H935
    unto thee, and say
    H559
    unto thee, Declare
    H5046
    unto us now what thou hast said
    H1696
    unto the king,
    H4428
    hide
    H3582
    it not from us, and we will not put thee to death;
    H4191
    also what the king
    H4428
    said
    H1696
    unto thee:
  26. 26. Then thou shalt say
    H559
    unto them, I presented
    H5307
    my supplication
    H8467
    before
    H6440
    the king,
    H4428
    that he would not cause me to return
    H7725
    to Jonathan's
    H3083
    house,
    H1004
    to die
    H4191
    there.
  27. 27. Then came
    H935
    all the princes
    H8269
    unto Jeremiah,
    H3414
    and asked
    H7592
    him: and he told
    H5046
    them according to all these words
    H1697
    that the king
    H4428
    had commanded.
    H6680
    So they left off speaking
    H2790
    with him; for the matter
    H1697
    was not perceived.
    H8085
  28. 28. So Jeremiah
    H3414
    abode
    H3427
    in the court
    H2691
    of the prison
    H4307
    until the day
    H3117
    that Jerusalem
    H3389
    was taken:
    H3920
    and he was there when Jerusalem
    H3389
    was taken.
