Jeremiah 39


39:1 In the ninth year of Zedekiah king of Judah, in the tenth
 month, came Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon and all his army
 against Jerusalem, and they besieged it.
39:2 [And] in the eleventh year of Zedekiah, in the fourth
 month, the ninth [day] of the month, the city was broken up.
39:3 And all the princes of the king of Babylon came in, and sat
 in the middle gate, [even] Nergal-sharezer, Samgar-nebo,
 Sarsechim, Rab-saris, Nergal-sharezer, Rab-mag, with all the
 residue of the princes of the king of Babylon.
39:4 And it came to pass, when Zedekiah the king of Judah saw
 them, and all the men of war, then they fled, and went out of
 the city by night, by the way of the king's garden, by the gate
 betwixt the two walls: and he went out the way of the plain.
39:5 But the Chaldeans' army pursued them, and overtook Zedekiah
 in the plains of Jericho: and when they had taken him, they
 brought him to Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon to Riblah in the
 land of Hamath, where he gave judgment upon him.
39:6 Then the king of Babylon slew the sons of Zedekiah in
 Riblah before his eyes: also the king of Babylon slew all the
 nobles of Judah.
39:7 Moreover he put out Zedekiah's eyes, and bound him with
 chains, to carry him to Babylon.
39:8 And the Chaldeans burned the king's house, and the houses
 of the people, with fire, and broke down the walls of
 Jerusalem.
39:9 Then Nebuzar-adan the captain of the guard carried away
 captive into Babylon the remnant of the people that remained in
 the city, and those that fell away, that fell to him, with the
 rest of the people that remained.
39:10 But Nebuzar-adan the captain of the guard left of the poor
 of the people, who had nothing, in the land of Judah, and gave
 them vineyards and fields at the same time.
39:11 Now Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon gave charge concerning
 Jeremiah to Nebuzar-adan the captain of the guard, saying,
39:12 Take him, and look well to him, and do him no harm; but do
 to him even as he shall say to thee.
39:13 So Nebuzar-adan the captain of the guard sent, and
 Nebushasban, Rab-saris, and Nergal-sharezer, Rab-mag, and all
 the king of Babylon's princes;
39:14 Even they sent, and took Jeremiah out of the court of the
 prison, and committed him to Gedaliah the son of Ahikam the son
 of Shaphan, that he should carry him home: so he dwelt among
 the people.
39:15 Now the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah, while he was
 confined in the court of the prison, saying,
39:16 Go and speak to Ebed-melech the Cushite, saying, Thus
 saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will
 bring my words upon this city for evil, and not for good; and
 they shall be [accomplished] in that day before thee.
39:17 But I will deliver thee in that day, saith the LORD: and
 thou shalt not be given into the hand of the men of whom thou
 [art] afraid.
39:18 For I will surely deliver thee, and thou shalt not fall by
 the sword, but thy life shall be for a prey to thee: because
 thou hast put thy trust in me, saith the LORD.
