    38:1 Then Shephatiah 8203 the son 1121 of Mattan 4977, and Gedaliah 1436 the son 1121 of Pashur 6583, and Jucal 3116 the son 1121 of Shelemiah 8018, and Pashur 6583 the son 1121 of Malchiah 4441, heard 8085 8799 the words 1697 that Jeremiah 3414 had spoken 1696 8764 unto all the people 5971, saying 559 8800,

    38:2 Thus saith 559 8804 the LORD 3068, He that remaineth 3427 8802 in this city 5892 shall die 4191 8799 by the sword 2719, by the famine 7458, and by the pestilence 1698: but he that goeth forth 3318 8802 to the Chaldeans 3778 shall live 2421 8804; for he shall have his life 5315 for a prey 7998, and shall live 2421 8799 8675 2425 8804.

    38:3 Thus saith 559 8804 the LORD 3068, This city 5892 shall surely 5414 8736 be given 5414 8735 into the hand 3027 of the king 4428 of Babylon's 894 army 2428, which shall take 3920 8804 it.

    38:4 Therefore the princes 8269 said 559 8799 unto the king 4428, We beseech thee, let this man 376 be put to death 4191 8714: for thus 3651 he weakeneth 7503 8764 the hands 3027 of the men 582 of war 4421 that remain 7604 8737 in this city 5892, and the hands 3027 of all the people 5971, in speaking 1696 8763 such words 1697 unto them: for this man 376 seeketh 1875 8802 not the welfare 7965 of this people 5971, but the hurt 7451.(welfare: Heb. peace)

    38:5 Then Zedekiah 6667 the king 4428 said 559 8799, Behold, he [is] in your hand 3027: for the king 4428 [is] not [he that] can 3201 8799 do [any] thing 1697 against you.

    38:6 Then took 3947 8799 they Jeremiah 3414, and cast 7993 8686 him into the dungeon 953 of Malchiah 4441 the son 1121 of Hammelech 4428, that [was] in the court 2691 of the prison 4307: and they let down 7971 8762 Jeremiah 3414 with cords 2256. And in the dungeon 953 [there was] no water 4325, but mire 2916: so Jeremiah 3414 sunk 2883 8799 in the mire 2916.(of Hammelech: or, of the king)

    38:7 Now when Ebedmelech 5663 the Ethiopian 3569, one 376 of the eunuchs 5631 which was in the king's 4428 house 1004, heard 8085 8799 that they had put 5414 8804 Jeremiah 3414 in the dungeon 953; the king 4428 then sitting 3427 8802 in the gate 8179 of Benjamin 1144;

    38:8 Ebedmelech 5663 went forth 3318 8799 out of the king's 4428 house 1004, and spake 1696 8762 to the king 4428, saying 559 8800,

    38:9 My lord 113 the king 4428, these men 582 have done evil 7489 8689 in all that they have done 6213 8804 to Jeremiah 3414 the prophet 5030, whom they have cast 7993 8689 into the dungeon 953; and he is like to die 4191 8799 for 6440 hunger 7458 in the place 8478 where he is: for [there is] no more bread 3899 in the city 5892.(he is like…: Heb. he will die)

    38:10 Then the king 4428 commanded 6680 8762 Ebedmelech 5663 the Ethiopian 3569, saying 559 8800, Take 3947 8798 from hence thirty 7970 men 582 with thee 3027, and take up 5927 8689 Jeremiah 3414 the prophet 5030 out of the dungeon 953, before he die 4191 8799.(with thee: Heb. in thine hand)

    38:11 So Ebedmelech 5663 took 3947 8799 the men 582 with him 3027, and went 935 8799 into the house 1004 of the king 4428 under the treasury 214, and took 3947 8799 thence old 1094 cast clouts 5499 and old 1094 rotten rags 4418, and let them down 7971 8762 by cords 2256 into the dungeon 953 to Jeremiah 3414.

    38:12 And Ebedmelech 5663 the Ethiopian 3569 said 559 8799 unto Jeremiah 3414, Put 7760 8798 now [these] old 1094 cast clouts 5499 and rotten rags 4418 under thine armholes 679 3027 under the cords 2256. And Jeremiah 3414 did 6213 8799 so.

    38:13 So they drew up 4900 8799 Jeremiah 3414 with cords 2256, and took him up 5927 8686 out of the dungeon 953: and Jeremiah 3414 remained 3427 8799 in the court 2691 of the prison 4307.

    38:14 Then Zedekiah 6667 the king 4428 sent 7971 8799, and took 3947 8799 Jeremiah 3414 the prophet 5030 unto him into the third 7992 entry 3996 that [is] in the house 1004 of the LORD 3068: and the king 4428 said 559 8799 unto Jeremiah 3414, I will ask 7592 8802 thee a thing 1697; hide 3582 8762 nothing from me.(third: or, principal)

    38:15 Then Jeremiah 3414 said 559 8799 unto Zedekiah 6667, If I declare 5046 8686 [it] unto thee, wilt thou not surely 4191 8687 put me to death 4191 8686? and if I give thee counsel 3289 8799, wilt thou not hearken 8085 8799 unto me?

    38:16 So Zedekiah 6667 the king 4428 sware 7650 8735 secretly 5643 unto Jeremiah 3414, saying 559 8800, [As] the LORD 3068 liveth 2416, that made 6213 8804 us this soul 5315, I will not put thee to death 4191 8686, neither will I give 5414 8799 thee into the hand 3027 of these men 582 that seek 1245 8764 thy life 5315.

    38:17 Then said 559 8799 Jeremiah 3414 unto Zedekiah 6667, Thus saith 559 8804 the LORD 3068, the God 430 of hosts 6635, the God 430 of Israel 3478; If thou wilt assuredly 3318 8800 go forth 3318 8799 unto the king 4428 of Babylon's 894 princes 8269, then thy soul 5315 shall live 2421 8804, and this city 5892 shall not be burned 8313 8735 with fire 784; and thou shalt live 2421 8804, and thine house 1004:

    38:18 But if thou wilt not go forth 3318 8799 to the king 4428 of Babylon's 894 princes 8269, then shall this city 5892 be given 5414 8738 into the hand 3027 of the Chaldeans 3778, and they shall burn 8313 8804 it with fire 784, and thou shalt not escape out 4422 8735 of their hand 3027.

    38:19 And Zedekiah 6667 the king 4428 said 559 8799 unto Jeremiah 3414, I am afraid 1672 8802 of the Jews 3064 that are fallen 5307 8804 to the Chaldeans 3778, lest they deliver 5414 8799 me into their hand 3027, and they mock 5953 8694 me.

    38:20 But Jeremiah 3414 said 559 8799, They shall not deliver 5414 8799 [thee]. Obey 8085 8798, I beseech thee, the voice 6963 of the LORD 3068, which I speak 1696 8802 unto thee: so it shall be well 3190 8799 unto thee, and thy soul 5315 shall live 2421 8799.

    38:21 But if thou refuse 3986 to go forth 3318 8800, this [is] the word 1697 that the LORD 3068 hath shewed 7200 8689 me:

    38:22 And, behold, all the women 802 that are left 7604 8738 in the king 4428 of Judah's 3063 house 1004 [shall be] brought forth 3318 8716 to the king 4428 of Babylon's 894 princes 8269, and those [women] shall say 559 8802, Thy friends 582 7965 have set thee on 5496 8689, and have prevailed 3201 8804 against thee: thy feet 7272 are sunk 2883 8717 in the mire 1206, [and] they are turned away 5472 8738 back 268.(Thy friends: Heb. Men of thy peace)

    38:23 So they shall bring out 3318 8688 all thy wives 802 and thy children 1121 to the Chaldeans 3778: and thou shalt not escape out 4422 8735 of their hand 3027, but shalt be taken 8610 8735 by the hand 3027 of the king 4428 of Babylon 894: and thou shalt cause this city 5892 to be burned 8313 8799 with fire 784.(thou shalt cause…: Heb. thou shalt burn, etc)

    38:24 Then said 559 8799 Zedekiah 6667 unto Jeremiah 3414, Let no man 376 know 3045 8799 of these words 1697, and thou shalt not die 4191 8799.

    38:25 But if the princes 8269 hear 8085 8799 that I have talked 1696 8765 with thee, and they come 935 8804 unto thee, and say 559 8804 unto thee, Declare 5046 8685 unto us now what thou hast said 1696 8765 unto the king 4428, hide 3582 8762 it not from us, and we will not put thee to death 4191 8686; also what the king 4428 said 1696 8765 unto thee:

    38:26 Then thou shalt say 559 8804 unto them, I presented 5307 8688 my supplication 8467 before 6440 the king 4428, that he would not cause me to return 7725 8687 to Jonathan's 3083 house 1004, to die 4191 8800 there.

    38:27 Then came 935 8799 all the princes 8269 unto Jeremiah 3414, and asked 7592 8799 him: and he told 5046 8686 them according to all these words 1697 that the king 4428 had commanded 6680 8765. So they left off speaking 2790 8686 with him; for the matter 1697 was not perceived 8085 8738.(they…: Heb. they were silent from him)

    38:28 So Jeremiah 3414 abode 3427 8799 in the court 2691 of the prison 4307 until the day 3117 that Jerusalem 3389 was taken 3920 8738: and he was [there] when Jerusalem 3389 was taken 3920 8738.
