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