“¶ Now the word of the Lord came vnto Ieremiah, while hee was shut vp in the court of the prison, saying;”
King James Version (KJV)
12. Take him, and looke well to him, and doe him no harme, but doe vnto him euen as he shall say vnto thee. 13. So Nebuzaradan the captaine of the guard sent, and Nebushasban, Rabsaris, and Nergal-Sharezer, Rabmag, and all the King of Babylons Princes: 14. Euen they sent, and tooke Ieremiah out of the court of the prison, and committed him vnto Gedaliah the son of Ahikam, the sonne of Shaphan, that hee should carie him home: so hee dwelt among the people. 15. ¶ Now the word of the Lord came vnto Ieremiah, while hee was shut vp in the court of the prison, saying; 16. Goe and speake to Ebed-melech the Ethiopian, saying, Thus sayth the Lord of hostes the God of Israel, Behold, I will bring my words vpon this citie for euill, and not for good, and they shall be accomplished in that day before thee. 17. But I will deliuer thee in that day, sayth the Lord, and thou shalt not be giuen into the hand of the men of whom thou art afraid. 18. For I wil surely deliuer thee, and thou shalt not fall by the sword, but thy life shall be for a pray vnto thee, because thou hast put thy trust in me, sayth the Lord.
