Jeremiah 39
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1In the ninth year of Tsedeqiah, King of Judea, in the tenth month, Nebukadnetsar, King of Babel, came, he and all his army, to Jerusalem, and encamped against it 2And in the eleventh year of King Tsedeqia, in the fifth month, in the ninth of the month, the city was broken through 3And all the Princes of the King of Babel came and they dwelt in the middle gate: Nergal Sharetsar and Samgednebu, and Sarsekim the High Eunuch, and Nargal Sharetsar the Chief Magus, and all the Princes of the King of Babel 4And when Tsedeqia King of Judea saw them and all the men Warriors, they fled and they went out from the city in the night in the road of the garden of the King, by the gate of the house of the walls, and they went out in the road of the valley 5And the army of The Chaldeans pursued after them, and they overtook Tsedeqiah in the plain of Yerikho, and all his army was scattered from him, and they took him and they brought him up to Nebukadnetsar King of Babel, to Deblath, in the land of Khamath, and he spoke judgment with him 6And the King of Babel slaughtered the sons of Tsedeqiah in Deblath before his eyes, and the King of Babel slaughtered all the freemen the Princes of Judea 7And he put out the eyes of Tsedeqiah, and he bound him in chains to carry him to Babel 8And the house of the King and the houses of the people the Chaldeans burned in fire, and they broke down the wall of Jerusalem around it 9And the remainder of the people who were left in the city and the men that had fled to him and the remainder of the people who were left Nebuzaradan the High Guard led captive and took them to Babel 10And Nebuzaradan the High Guard left some poor people who had nothing in the land of Judea, and he gave them vineyards and work in that day

11And Nebukadnetsar King of Babel commanded Nebuzaradan the High Guard concerning Jeremiah, and said to him: 12Take Jeremiah and let your eyes be upon him and do no harm to him, and everything that he says to you, do it 13And Nebuzaradan the High Guard sent, and Nebushazban the High Eunuch, and Nargal Sharetsar the Chief Magus and all the Princes of the King of Babel 14They sent and they brought Jeremiah from the courtyard of the house of prisoners and delivered him to Gedaliah, son of Akhiqam, son of Shaphan, to bring him out to his house, and he dwelt among the people

15And the word of LORD JEHOVAH was upon Jeremiah when he was shut up in the court of the Guard: 16“Go and say to Ebed Melek the Kushite, “Thus says LORD JEHOVAH of Hosts, God of Israel: ‘Behold, I bring words on this city for evil, and not for good, and they shall be before you in that day 17And I shall save you in that day, says LORD JEHOVAH, and you shall not be handed over into the hand of the men whom you fear 18And I shall save you, and you shall not fall by the sword and you shall deliver your soul, because you have trusted upon me, says LORD JEHOVAH’”
