Jeremiah

Chapter 40

  1. 1. The word
    H1697
    that came to Jeremiah
    H3414
    from the LORD,
    H3068
    after
    H310
    that Nebuzaradan
    H5018
    the captain
    H7227
    of the guard
    H2876
    had let him go
    H7971
    from Ramah,
    H7414
    when he had taken
    H3947
    him being bound
    H631
    in chains
    H246
    among
    H8432
    all that were carried away captive
    H1546
    of Jerusalem
    H3389
    and Judah,
    H3063
    which were carried away captive
    H1540
    unto Babylon.
    H894
  2. 2. And the captain
    H7227
    of the guard
    H2876
    took
    H3947
    Jeremiah,
    H3414
    and said
    H559
    unto him, The LORD
    H3068
    thy God
    H430
    hath pronounced
    H1696
    this evil
    H7451
    upon this place.
    H4725
  3. 3. Now the LORD
    H3068
    hath brought
    H935
    it, and done
    H6213
    according as he hath said:
    H1696
    because ye have sinned
    H2398
    against the LORD,
    H3068
    and have not obeyed
    H8085
    his voice,
    H6963
    therefore this thing
    H1697
    is come upon you.
  4. 4. And now, behold, I loose
    H6605
    thee this day
    H3117
    from the chains
    H246
    which were upon thine hand.
    H3027
    If it seem good
    H5869
    unto
    H2896
    thee to come
    H935
    with me into Babylon,
    H894
    come;
    H935
    and I will look well
    H7760
    H5869
    unto thee: but if it seem ill
    H7489
    H5869
    unto thee to come
    H935
    with me into Babylon,
    H894
    forbear:
    H2308
    behold,
    H7200
    all the land
    H776
    is before
    H6440
    thee: whither it seemeth
    H413
    good
    H2896
    and convenient
    H5869
    for
    H3477
    thee to go,
    H3212
    thither go.
    H3212
  5. 5. Now while he was not yet gone back,
    H7725
    he said, Go back
    H7725
    also to Gedaliah
    H1436
    the son
    H1121
    of Ahikam
    H296
    the son
    H1121
    of Shaphan,
    H8227
    whom the king
    H4428
    of Babylon
    H894
    hath made governor
    H6485
    over the cities
    H5892
    of Judah,
    H3063
    and dwell
    H3427
    with him among
    H8432
    the people:
    H5971
    or go
    H3212
    wheresoever it seemeth convenient
    H5869
    unto
    H3477
    thee to go.
    H3212
    So the captain
    H7227
    of the guard
    H2876
    gave
    H5414
    him victuals
    H737
    and a reward,
    H4864
    and let him go.
    H7971
  6. 6. Then went
    H935
    Jeremiah
    H3414
    unto Gedaliah
    H1436
    the son
    H1121
    of Ahikam
    H296
    to Mizpah;
    H4708
    and dwelt
    H3427
    with him among
    H8432
    the people
    H5971
    that were left
    H7604
    in the land.
    H776
  7. 7. Now when all the captains
    H8269
    of the forces
    H2428
    which were in the fields,
    H7704
    even they and their men,
    H582
    heard
    H8085
    that the king
    H4428
    of Babylon
    H894
    had made Gedaliah
    H1436
    the son
    H1121
    of Ahikam
    H296
    governor
    H6485
    in the land,
    H776
    and had committed
    H6485
    unto him men,
    H582
    and women,
    H802
    and children,
    H2945
    and of the poor
    H1803
    of the land,
    H776
    of them that were not carried away captive
    H1540
    to Babylon;
    H894
  8. 8. Then they came
    H935
    to Gedaliah
    H1436
    to Mizpah,
    H4708
    even Ishmael
    H3458
    the son
    H1121
    of Nethaniah,
    H5418
    and Johanan
    H3110
    and Jonathan
    H3129
    the sons
    H1121
    of Kareah,
    H7143
    and Seraiah
    H8304
    the son
    H1121
    of Tanhumeth,
    H8576
    and the sons
    H1121
    of Ephai
    H5778
    the Netophathite,
    H5200
    and Jezaniah
    H3153
    the son
    H1121
    of a Maachathite,
    H4602
    they and their men.
    H582
  9. 9. And Gedaliah
    H1436
    the son
    H1121
    of Ahikam
    H296
    the son
    H1121
    of Shaphan
    H8227
    sware
    H7650
    unto them and to their men,
    H582
    saying,
    H559
    Fear
    H3372
    not to serve
    H5647
    the Chaldeans:
    H3778
    dwell in
    H3427
    the land,
    H776
    and serve
    H5647
    the king
    H4428
    of Babylon,
    H894
    and it shall be well
    H3190
    with you.
  10. 10. As for me, behold, I will dwell
    H3427
    at Mizpah
    H4709
    to serve
    H5975
    H6440
    the Chaldeans,
    H3778
    which will come
    H935
    unto us: but ye, gather
    H622
    ye wine,
    H3196
    and summer fruits,
    H7019
    and oil,
    H8081
    and put
    H7760
    them in your vessels,
    H3627
    and dwell
    H3427
    in your cities
    H5892
    that ye have taken.
    H8610
  11. 11. Likewise when all the Jews
    H3064
    that were in Moab,
    H4124
    and among the Ammonites,
    H5983
    and in Edom,
    H123
    and that were in all the countries,
    H776
    heard
    H8085
    that the king
    H4428
    of Babylon
    H894
    had left
    H5414
    a remnant
    H7611
    of Judah,
    H3063
    and that he had set
    H6485
    over them Gedaliah
    H1436
    the son
    H1121
    of Ahikam
    H296
    the son
    H1121
    of Shaphan;
    H8227
  12. 12. Even all the Jews
    H3064
    returned out
    H7725
    of all places
    H4725
    whither they were driven,
    H5080
    and came
    H935
    to the land
    H776
    of Judah,
    H3063
    to Gedaliah,
    H1436
    unto Mizpah,
    H4708
    and gathered
    H622
    wine
    H3196
    and summer fruits
    H7019
    very
    H3966
    much.
    H7235
  13. 13. Moreover Johanan
    H3110
    the son
    H1121
    of Kareah,
    H7143
    and all the captains
    H8269
    of the forces
    H2428
    that were in the fields,
    H7704
    came
    H935
    to Gedaliah
    H1436
    to Mizpah,
    H4708
  14. 14. And said
    H559
    unto him, Dost thou certainly
    H3045
    know
    H3045
    that Baalis
    H1185
    the king
    H4428
    of the Ammonites
    H5983
    hath
    H1121
    sent
    H7971
    Ishmael
    H3458
    the son
    H1121
    of Nethaniah
    H5418
    to slay
    H5221
    H5315
    thee? But Gedaliah
    H1436
    the son
    H1121
    of Ahikam
    H296
    believed
    H539
    them not.
  15. 15. Then Johanan
    H3110
    the son
    H1121
    of Kareah
    H7143
    spake
    H559
    to Gedaliah
    H1436
    in Mizpah
    H4709
    secretly,
    H5643
    saying,
    H559
    Let me go,
    H3212
    I pray thee, and I will slay
    H5221
    Ishmael
    H3458
    the son
    H1121
    of Nethaniah,
    H5418
    and no man
    H376
    shall know
    H3045
    it: wherefore should he slay
    H5221
    H5315
    thee, that all the Jews
    H3064
    which are gathered
    H6908
    unto thee should be scattered,
    H6327
    and the remnant
    H7611
    in Judah
    H3063
    perish?
    H6
  16. 16. But Gedaliah
    H1436
    the son
    H1121
    of Ahikam
    H296
    said
    H559
    unto Johanan
    H3110
    the son
    H1121
    of Kareah,
    H7143
    Thou shalt not do
    H6213
    this thing:
    H1697
    for thou speakest
    H1696
    falsely
    H8267
    of Ishmael.
    H3458
