1 H8671 In the ninth H8141 year H6667 of Zedekiah H4428 king H3063 of Judah H6224 , in the tenth H2320 month H935 , came [H8804] H5019 Nebuchadrezzar H4428 king H894 of Babylon H2428 and all his army H3389 against Jerusalem H6696 , and they besieged [H8799] it.
2 H6249 And in the eleventh H6240 H8141 year H6667 of Zedekiah H7243 , in the fourth H2320 month H8672 , the ninth H2320 day of the month H5892 , the city H1234 was broken up [H8717] .
3 H8269 And all the princes H4428 of the king H894 of Babylon H935 came in [H8799] H3427 , and sat [H8799] H8432 in the middle H8179 gate H5371 , even Nergalsharezer H5562 , Samgarnebo H8310 , Sarsechim H7249 , Rabsaris H5371 , Nergalsharezer H7248 , Rabmag H7611 , with all the residue H8269 of the princes H4428 of the king H894 of Babylon.
4 H6667 And it came to pass, that when Zedekiah H4428 the king H3063 of Judah H7200 saw [H8804] H582 them, and all the men H4421 of war H1272 , then they fled [H8799] H3318 , and went forth [H8799] H5892 out of the city H3915 by night H1870 , by the way H4428 of the king's H1588 garden H8179 , by the gate H2346 betwixt the two walls H3318 : and he went out [H8799] H1870 the way H6160 of the plain.
5 H3778 But the Chaldeans H2428 ' army H7291 pursued [H8799] H310 after H5381 them, and overtook [H8686] H6667 Zedekiah H6160 in the plains H3405 of Jericho H3947 : and when they had taken [H8799] H5927 him, they brought him up [H8686] H5019 to Nebuchadnezzar H4428 king H894 of Babylon H7247 to Riblah H776 in the land H2574 of Hamath H1696 , where he gave [H8762] H4941 judgment upon him.
6 H4428 Then the king H894 of Babylon H7819 slew [H8799] H1121 the sons H6667 of Zedekiah H7247 in Riblah H5869 before his eyes H4428 : also the king H894 of Babylon H7819 slew [H8804] H2715 all the nobles H3063 of Judah.
7 H5786 Moreover he put out [H8765] H6667 Zedekiah's H5869 eyes H631 , and bound [H8799] H5178 him with chains H935 , to carry [H8687] H894 him to Babylon.
8 H3778 And the Chaldeans H8313 burned [H8804] H4428 the king's H1004 house H1004 , and the houses H5971 of the people H784 , with fire H5422 , and brake down [H8804] H2346 the walls H3389 of Jerusalem.
9 H5018 Then Nebuzaradan H7227 the captain H2876 of the guard H1540 carried away captive [H8689] H894 into Babylon H3499 the remnant H5971 of the people H7604 that remained [H8737] H5892 in the city H5307 , and those that fell away [H8802] H5307 , that fell [H8804] H3499 to him, with the rest H5971 of the people H7604 that remained [H8737] .
10 H5018 But Nebuzaradan H7227 the captain H2876 of the guard H7604 left [H8689] H1800 of the poor H5971 of the people H3972 , which had nothing H776 , in the land H3063 of Judah H5414 , and gave [H8799] H3754 them vineyards H3010 and fields H3117 at the same time.
11 H5019 Now Nebuchadrezzar H4428 king H894 of Babylon H6680 gave charge [H8762] H3414 concerning Jeremiah H3027 to H5018 Nebuzaradan H7227 the captain H2876 of the guard H559 , saying [H8800] ,
12 H3947 Take [H8798] H5869 him, and look well H7760 [H8798] H6213 to him, and do [H8799] H3972 him no harm H7451 H6213 ; but do [H8798] H1696 unto him even as he shall say [H8762] unto thee.
13 H5018 So Nebuzaradan H7227 the captain H2876 of the guard H7971 sent [H8799] H5021 , and Nebushasban H7249 , Rabsaris H5371 , and Nergalsharezer H7248 , Rabmag H4428 , and all the king H894 of Babylon's H7227 princes;
14 H7971 Even they sent [H8799] H3947 , and took [H8799] H3414 Jeremiah H2691 out of the court H4307 of the prison H5414 , and committed [H8799] H1436 him unto Gedaliah H1121 the son H296 of Ahikam H1121 the son H8227 of Shaphan H3318 , that he should carry [H8687] H1004 him home H3427 : so he dwelt [H8799] H8432 among H5971 the people.
15 H1697 Now the word H3068 of the LORD H3414 came unto Jeremiah H6113 , while he was shut up [H8803] H2691 in the court H4307 of the prison H559 , saying [H8800] ,
16 H1980 Go [H8800] H559 and speak [H8804] H5663 to Ebedmelech H3569 the Ethiopian H559 , saying [H8800] H559 , Thus saith [H8804] H3068 the LORD H6635 of hosts H430 , the God H3478 of Israel H935 ; Behold, I will bring [H8688] H1697 my words H5892 upon this city H7451 for evil H2896 , and not for good H3117 ; and they shall be accomplished in that day H6440 before thee.
17 H5337 But I will deliver [H8689] H3117 thee in that day H5002 , saith [H8803] H3068 the LORD H5414 : and thou shalt not be given [H8735] H3027 into the hand H582 of the men H6440 of whom H3016 thou art afraid [H8801] .
