Jeremiah 41
NMV
41
1Now it came to pass in the seventh month, [that] Yishma’el [God will hear] the son of N’tanyah [given of Yehovah] the son of Elishama [My God has Heard], of the seed royal, and the princes of the king, even ten men with him, came unto G’dalyahu [Yehovah is great] the son of Achikam [my brother has arisen] to Mitzpah [watchtower]; and there they did eat bread together in Mitzpah [watchtower].
2Then arose Yishma’el [God will hear] the son of N’tanyah [given of Yehovah], and the ten men that were with him, and struck G’dalyahu [Yehovah is great] the son of Achikam [my brother has arisen] the son of Shafan [coney] with the sword, and killed him, whom the king of Bavel (to jumble, or a confused medley of sounds; confusion; gate of the deity) (Babylon) [confusion] had made governor over the land.
3Yishma’el [God will hear] also killed all the Y’hudim (Judeans) that were with him, [even] with G’dalyahu [Yehovah is great], at Mitzpah [watchtower], and the Kasdim [clod-breakers] that were found there, [and] the men of war.
4And it came to pass the second day after he had slain G’dalyahu [Yehovah is great], and no man knew [it],
5That there came certain from Sh’khem [Shoulder], from Shiloh [Place of Rest], and from Shomron [watch mountain], [even] eighty men, having their beards shaven, and their clothes rent, and having cut themselves, with offerings and incense in their hand, to bring [them] to the house of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate).
6And Yishma’el [God will hear] the son of N’tanyah [given of Yehovah] went forth from Mitzpah [watchtower] to meet them, weeping all along as he went: and it came to pass, as he met them, he said unto them, Come to G’dalyahu [Yehovah is great] the son of Achikam [my brother has arisen].
7And it was [so], when they came into the midst of the city, that Yishma’el [God will hear] the son of N’tanyah [given of Yehovah] killed them, [and cast them] into the midst of the pit, he, and the men that [were] with him.
8But ten men were found among them that said unto Yishma’el [God will hear], Slay us not: for we have treasures in the field, of wheat, and of barley, and of oil, and of honey. So he forbare, and killed them not among their brethren.
9Now the pit wherein Yishma’el [God will hear] had cast all the dead bodies of the men, whom he had slain because of G’dalyahu [Yehovah is great], [was] it which Asa [healer; injurious?] the king had made for fear of Ba’sha [wicked] king of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God]: [and] Yishma’el [God will hear] the son of N’tanyah [given of Yehovah] filled it with [them that were] slain.
10Then Yishma’el [God will hear] carried away captive all the residue (part that remains, the rest) of the people that [were] in Mitzpah [watchtower], [even] the king’s daughters, and all the people that remained in Mitzpah [watchtower], whom N’vuzar’adan [Nebo has given seed] the captain of the guard had committed to G’dalyahu [Yehovah is great] the son of Achikam [my brother has arisen]: and Yishma’el [God will hear] the son of N’tanyah [given of Yehovah] carried them away captive, and departed to go over to the ‘Amon [Inbred].
11But when Yochanan [Yehovah has graced] the son of Kareach [bald], and all the captains of the forces that [were] with him, heard of all the evil that Yishma’el [God will hear] the son of N’tanyah [given of Yehovah] had done,
12Then they took all the men, and went to fight with Yishma’el [God will hear] the son of N’tanyah [given of Yehovah], and found him by the great waters that [are] in Giv’on [Hill City].
13Now it came to pass, [that] when all the people which [were] with Yishma’el [God will hear] saw Yochanan [Yehovah has graced] the son of Kareach [bald], and all the captains of the forces that [were] with him, then they were glad.
14So all the people that Yishma’el [God will hear] had carried away captive from Mitzpah [watchtower] cast about and returned, and went unto Yochanan [Yehovah has graced] the son of Kareach [bald].
15But Yishma’el [God will hear] the son of N’tanyah [given of Yehovah] escaped from Yochanan [Yehovah has graced] with eight men, and went to the ‘Amon [Inbred].
16Then took Yochanan [Yehovah has graced] the son of Kareach [bald], and all the captains of the forces that [were] with him, all the remnant of the people whom he had recovered from Yishma’el [God will hear] the son of N’tanyah [given of Yehovah], from Mitzpah [watchtower], after [that] he had slain G’dalyahu [Yehovah is great] the son of Achikam [my brother has arisen], [even] mighty men of war, and the women, and the children, and the eunuchs, whom he had brought again from Giv’on [Hill City]:
17And they departed, and dwelt in the habitation of Khimham [their longing], which is by Beit-Lechem [House of Bread], to go to enter into Mitzrayim [Egypt - The Narrow Place],
18Because of the Kasdim [clod-breakers]: for they were afraid of them, because Yishma’el [God will hear] the son of N’tanyah [given of Yehovah] had slain G’dalyahu [Yehovah is great] the son of Achikam [my brother has arisen], whom the king of Bavel (to jumble, or a confused medley of sounds; confusion; gate of the deity) (Babylon) [confusion] made governor in the land.
