39:9 Then Nebuzaradan [H5018] the captain [H7227] of the guard [H2876] carried away captive [H1540] into Babylon [H894] the remnant [H3499] of the people [H5971] that remained [H7604] in the city [H5892] , and those that fell away [H5307] , that fell [H5307] to him, with the rest [H3499] of the people [H5971] that remained [H7604] .(captain: or, chief marshal: Heb. chief of the executioners, or, slaughtermen)

39:10 But Nebuzaradan [H5018] the captain [H7227] of the guard [H2876] left [H7604] of the poor [H1800] of the people [H5971] , which had nothing [H3972] , in the land [H776] of Judah [H3063] , and gave [H5414] them vineyards [H3754] and fields [H3010] at the same time [H3117] .(at the: Heb. in that day)

39:11 Now Nebuchadrezzar [H5019] king [H4428] of Babylon [H894] gave charge [H6680] concerning Jeremiah [H3414] to [H3027] Nebuzaradan [H5018] the captain [H7227] of the guard [H2876] , saying [H559] ,(to: Heb. by the hand of)

39:12 Take [H3947] him, and look well [H5869] [H7760] to him, and do [H6213] him no harm [H3972] [H7451] ; but do [H6213] unto him even as he shall say [H1696] unto thee.(look: Heb. set thine eyes upon him)

39:13 So Nebuzaradan [H5018] the captain [H7227] of the guard [H2876] sent [H7971] , and Nebushasban [H5021] , Rabsaris [H7249] , and Nergalsharezer [H5371] , Rabmag [H7248] , and all the king [H4428] of Babylon's [H894] princes [H7227] ;

39:14 Even they sent [H7971] , and took [H3947] Jeremiah [H3414] out of the court [H2691] of the prison [H4307] , and committed [H5414] him unto Gedaliah [H1436] the son [H1121] of Ahikam [H296] the son [H1121] of Shaphan [H8227] , that he should carry [H3318] him home [H1004] : so he dwelt [H3427] among [H8432] the people [H5971] .

39:15 Now the word [H1697] of the LORD [H3068] came unto Jeremiah [H3414] , while he was shut up [H6113] in the court [H2691] of the prison [H4307] , saying [H559] ,

39:16 Go [H1980] and speak [H559] to Ebedmelech [H5663] the Ethiopian [H3569] , saying [H559] , Thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] of hosts [H6635] , the God [H430] of Israel [H3478] ; Behold, I will bring [H935] my words [H1697] upon this city [H5892] for evil [H7451] , and not for good [H2896] ; and they shall be [accomplished] in that day [H3117] before [H6440] thee.

39:17 But I will deliver [H5337] thee in that day [H3117] , saith [H5002] the LORD [H3068] : and thou shalt not be given [H5414] into the hand [H3027] of the men [H582] of whom [H6440] thou [art] afraid [H3016] .

39:18 For I will surely [H4422] deliver [H4422] thee, and thou shalt not fall [H5307] by the sword [H2719] , but thy life [H5315] shall be for a prey [H7998] unto thee: because thou hast put thy trust [H982] in me, saith [H5002] the LORD [H3068] .
