Jeremiah 39
NMV
39
1In the ninth year of Tzidkiyah [Yehovah is righteous] king of Y’hudah [Let Him (God) Be Praised], in the tenth month, came N’vukhadretzar [may Nebo protect the crown] king of Bavel (to jumble, or a confused medley of sounds; confusion; gate of the deity) (Babylon) [confusion] and all his army against Yerushalayim [Foundation of Peace], and they besieged it.
2 [And] in the eleventh year of Tzidkiyah [Yehovah is righteous], in the fourth month, the ninth [day] of the month, the city was broken up.
3And all the princes of the king of Bavel (to jumble, or a confused medley of sounds; confusion; gate of the deity) (Babylon) [confusion] came in, and sat in the middle gate, [even] Nergal-Sar’etzer [prince of fire], Samgar-N’vo [sword of Nebo], Sars’khim [prince of eunuchs], Rav-Saris [chief eunuch], Nergal-Sar’etzer [prince of fire], Rav-Mag [chief magician], with all the residue (part that remains, the rest) of the princes of the king of Bavel (to jumble, or a confused medley of sounds; confusion; gate of the deity) (Babylon) [confusion].
4And it came to pass, [that] when Tzidkiyah [Yehovah is righteous] the king of Y’hudah [Let Him (God) Be Praised] saw them, and all the men of war, then they fled, and went forth out of the city by night, by the way of the king’s garden, by the gate between the two walls: and he went out the way of the plain.
5But the Kasdim [clod-breakers] army pursued after them, and overtook Tzidkiyah [Yehovah is righteous] in the plains of Yericho [Its Moon]: and when they had taken him, they brought him up to N’vukhadnetzar [May Nebo protect the crown] king of Bavel (to jumble, or a confused medley of sounds; confusion; gate of the deity) (Babylon) [confusion] to Rivlah [Fertility] in the land of Hamat [Fortress], where he gave judgment upon him.
6Then the king of Bavel (to jumble, or a confused medley of sounds; confusion; gate of the deity) (Babylon) [confusion] killed the sons of Tzidkiyah [Yehovah is righteous] in Rivlah [Fertility] before his eyes: also the king of Bavel (to jumble, or a confused medley of sounds; confusion; gate of the deity) (Babylon) [confusion] killed all the nobles of Y’hudah [Let Him (God) Be Praised].
7Moreover he put out Tzidkiyah’s [Yehovah is righteous]’s eyes, and bound him with chains, to carry him to Bavel (to jumble, or a confused medley of sounds; confusion; gate of the deity) (Babylon) [confusion].
8And the Kasdim [clod-breakers] burned the king’s house, and the houses of the people, with fire, and broke down the walls of Yerushalayim [Foundation of Peace].
9Then N’vuzar’adan [Nebo has given seed] the captain of the guard carried away captive into Bavel (to jumble, or a confused medley of sounds; confusion; gate of the deity) (Babylon) [confusion] the remnant of the people that remained in the city, and those that fell away, that fell to him, with the rest of the people that remained.
10But N’vuzar’adan [Nebo has given seed] the captain of the guard left of the poor of the people, which had nothing, in the land of Y’hudah [Let Him (God) Be Praised], and gave them vineyards and fields at the same time.
11Now N’vukhadretzar [may Nebo protect the crown] king of Bavel (to jumble, or a confused medley of sounds; confusion; gate of the deity) (Babylon) [confusion] gave charge concerning Yirmeyahu [whom Yehovah has appointed] to N’vuzar’adan [Nebo has given seed] the captain of the guard, saying,
12Take him, and look well to him, and do him no harm; but do unto him even as he shall say unto youi.
13So N’vuzar’adan [Nebo has given seed] the captain of the guard sent, and N’vushazban [Nebo delivers me], Rav-Saris [chief eunuch], and Nergal-Sar’etzer [prince of fire], Rav-Mag [chief magician], and all the king of Bavel (to jumble, or a confused medley of sounds; confusion; gate of the deity)’s (Babylon) [confusion]’s princes;
14Even they sent, and took Yirmeyahu [whom Yehovah has appointed] out of the court of the prison, and committed him unto G’dalyahu [Yehovah is great] the son of Achikam [my brother has arisen] the son of Shafan [coney], that he should carry him home: so he dwelt among the people.
15Now the word of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) came unto Yirmeyahu [whom Yehovah has appointed], while he was shut up in the court of the prison, saying,
16Go and speak to ‘Eved-Melekh [servant of the king] the Cushi (Ethiopian), saying, Thus says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) Tz’va’ot [of the Heavenly Armies], the God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God]; Behold, I will bring my words upon this city for evil, and not for good; and they shall be [accomplished] in that day before youi.
17But I will deliver youi in that day, says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate): and youi shall not be given into the hand of the men of whom youi [are] afraid.
18For I will surely deliver youi, and youi shall not fall by the sword, but youri life shall be for a prey unto youi: because youi have put youri trust in me, says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate).
