    40:1 The word 1697 that came to Jeremiah 3414 from the LORD 3068, after 310 that Nebuzaradan 5018 the captain 7227 of the guard 2876 had let him go 7971 8763 from Ramah 7414, when he had taken 3947 8800 him being bound 631 8803 in chains 246 among 8432 all that were carried away captive 1546 of Jerusalem 3389 and Judah 3063, which were carried away captive 1540 8716 unto Babylon 894.(chains: or, manicles)

    40:2 And the captain 7227 of the guard 2876 took 3947 8799 Jeremiah 3414, and said 559 8799 unto him, The LORD 3068 thy God 430 hath pronounced 1696 8765 this evil 7451 upon this place 4725.

    40:3 Now the LORD 3068 hath brought 935 8686 [it], and done 6213 8799 according as he hath said 1696 8765: because ye have sinned 2398 8804 against the LORD 3068, and have not obeyed 8085 8804 his voice 6963, therefore this thing 1697 is come upon you.

    40:4 And now, behold, I loose 6605 8765 thee this day 3117 from the chains 246 which [were] upon thine hand 3027. If it seem good 2896 5869 unto thee to come 935 8800 with me into Babylon 894, come 935 8798; and I will look well 7760 8799 5869 unto thee: but if it seem ill 7489 8804 5869 unto thee to come 935 8800 with me into Babylon 894, forbear 2308 8798: behold 7200 8798, all the land 776 [is] before 6440 thee: whither it seemeth 413 good 2896 and convenient 3477 5869 for thee to go 3212 8800, thither go 3212 8798.(were…: or, are upon thine hand)(I will…: Heb. I will set mine eye upon thee)

    40:5 Now while he was not yet gone back 7725 8799, [he said], Go back 7725 8798 also to Gedaliah 1436 the son 1121 of Ahikam 296 the son 1121 of Shaphan 8227, whom the king 4428 of Babylon 894 hath made governor 6485 8689 over the cities 5892 of Judah 3063, and dwell 3427 8798 with him among 8432 the people 5971: or go 3212 8798 wheresoever it seemeth convenient 3477 5869 unto thee to go 3212 8800. So the captain 7227 of the guard 2876 gave 5414 8799 him victuals 737 and a reward 4864, and let him go 7971 8762.

    40:6 Then went 935 8799 Jeremiah 3414 unto Gedaliah 1436 the son 1121 of Ahikam 296 to Mizpah 4708; and dwelt 3427 8799 with him among 8432 the people 5971 that were left 7604 8737 in the land 776.

    40:7 Now when all the captains 8269 of the forces 2428 which [were] in the fields 7704, [even] they and their men 582, heard 8085 8799 that the king 4428 of Babylon 894 had made Gedaliah 1436 the son 1121 of Ahikam 296 governor 6485 8689 in the land 776, and had committed 6485 8689 unto him men 582, and women 802, and children 2945, and of the poor 1803 of the land 776, of them that were not carried away captive 1540 8717 to Babylon 894;

    40:8 Then they came 935 8799 to Gedaliah 1436 to Mizpah 4708, even Ishmael 3458 the son 1121 of Nethaniah 5418, and Johanan 3110 and Jonathan 3129 the sons 1121 of Kareah 7143, and Seraiah 8304 the son 1121 of Tanhumeth 8576, and the sons 1121 of Ephai 5778 the Netophathite 5200, and Jezaniah 3153 the son 1121 of a Maachathite 4602, they and their men 582.

    40:9 And Gedaliah 1436 the son 1121 of Ahikam 296 the son 1121 of Shaphan 8227 sware 7650 8735 unto them and to their men 582, saying 559 8800, Fear 3372 8799 not to serve 5647 8800 the Chaldeans 3778: dwell in 3427 8798 the land 776, and serve 5647 8798 the king 4428 of Babylon 894, and it shall be well 3190 8799 with you.

    40:10 As for me, behold, I will dwell 3427 8802 at Mizpah 4709 to serve 5975 8800 6440 the Chaldeans 3778, which will come 935 8799 unto us: but ye, gather 622 8798 ye wine 3196, and summer fruits 7019, and oil 8081, and put 7760 8798 [them] in your vessels 3627, and dwell 3427 8798 in your cities 5892 that ye have taken 8610 8804.(to serve: Heb. to stand before)

    40:11 Likewise when all the Jews 3064 that [were] in Moab 4124, and among the Ammonites 5983, and in Edom 123, and that [were] in all the countries 776, heard 8085 8804 that the king 4428 of Babylon 894 had left 5414 8804 a remnant 7611 of Judah 3063, and that he had set 6485 8689 over them Gedaliah 1436 the son 1121 of Ahikam 296 the son 1121 of Shaphan 8227;

    40:12 Even all the Jews 3064 returned out 7725 8799 of all places 4725 whither they were driven 5080 8738, and came 935 8799 to the land 776 of Judah 3063, to Gedaliah 1436, unto Mizpah 4708, and gathered 622 8799 wine 3196 and summer fruits 7019 very 3966 much 7235 8687.

    40:13 Moreover Johanan 3110 the son 1121 of Kareah 7143, and all the captains 8269 of the forces 2428 that [were] in the fields 7704, came 935 8804 to Gedaliah 1436 to Mizpah 4708,

    40:14 And said 559 8799 unto him, Dost thou certainly 3045 8800 know 3045 8799 that Baalis 1185 the king 4428 of the Ammonites 1121 5983 hath sent 7971 8804 Ishmael 3458 the son 1121 of Nethaniah 5418 to slay 5221 8687 5315 thee? But Gedaliah 1436 the son 1121 of Ahikam 296 believed 539 8689 them not.(to slay…: Heb. to strike thee in soul?)

    40:15 Then Johanan 3110 the son 1121 of Kareah 7143 spake 559 8804 to Gedaliah 1436 in Mizpah 4709 secretly 5643, saying 559 8800, Let me go 3212 8799, I pray thee, and I will slay 5221 8686 Ishmael 3458 the son 1121 of Nethaniah 5418, and no man 376 shall know 3045 8799 [it]: wherefore should he slay 5221 8686 5315 thee, that all the Jews 3064 which are gathered 6908 8737 unto thee should be scattered 6327 8738, and the remnant 7611 in Judah 3063 perish 6 8804?

    40:16 But Gedaliah 1436 the son 1121 of Ahikam 296 said 559 8799 unto Johanan 3110 the son 1121 of Kareah 7143, Thou shalt not do 6213 8799 this thing 1697: for thou speakest 1696 8802 falsely 8267 of Ishmael 3458.
