Chapter 40. The word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord after never zaraidan the captain of The God had let him go from Rhema when He had taken him Bound in Chains among All who were carried away captive from Jerusalem and Judah who were carried Away captive to Babylon And the captain of the Guard took Jeremiah and said to him The Lord your God has pronounced this Doom on this place Now the Lord has brought it and has done Just as he said Because you people have sinned against The Lord and not obeyed his voice Therefore this thing has come upon you And now look I free you this day from The chains that were on your hand If it seems good to you to come with me To Babylon come and I will look after You But if it seems wrong for you to come With me to Babylon remain here See all the land is before you wherever It seems good and convenient for you to Go go there Now while Jeremiah had not yet gone back Nebazaradan said go back to get Alaya The son of a haikum the son of shafen Whom the king of Babylon has made Governor over the cities of Judah and Dwell with him among the people Or go wherever it seems convenient for

You to go So the captain of the guard gave him Rations and a gift and let him go Then Jeremiah went to get Elia the son Of a haikum to mizpah and dwelt with him Among the people who were left in the Land And when all the captains of the armies Who were in the fields they and their Men heard that the king of Babylon had Made getalaya the son of a haikum Governor in the land And had committed to him men women Children and the poorest of the land who Had not been carried away captive to Babylon Then they came to get Alaya at mispah Ishmael the son of nathaniah Johanan and Jonathan the sons of Korea Syria the son of tanhumith the sons of Ephi the notificate and jezaniah the son Of a mayakophyte they and their men And get a liar the son of a haikum the Son of shafen took an oath before them And their men saying Do not be afraid to serve the Chaldeans Dwell in the land and serve the king of Babylon and it shall be well with you As for me I will indeed dwell at mispah And serve the Chaldeans who come to us But you gather wine and summer fruit and Oil put them in your vessels and dwell In your cities that you have taken Likewise when all the Jews who were in

Moab among the ammonites in Edom and who Were in all the countries heard that the King of Babylon had left a remnant of Judah and that he had set over them get A liar the son of a haikum the son of Shafen Then all the Jews returned out of all Places where they had been driven and Came to the land of Judah to get a liar At mispah and gathered wine and summer Fruit in abundance Moreover johanan the son of Korea and All the captains of the forces that were In the fields came to get a liar at Mispah and said to him Do you certainly know that Bayless the King of the ammonites has sent Ishmael The son of nethaniah to murder you But get a liar the son of a haikum did Not believe them Then johanan the son of Korea spoke Secretly to get a liar in mizpah saying Let Me Go please and I will kill Ishmael The son of nathaniah and no one will Know it Why should he murder you so that all the Jews who are gathered to you would be Scattered and the remnant in Judah Perish But get a liar the son of a haikum said To johanan the son of Korea You shall not do this thing For you speak falsely concerning Ishmael
