Jeremiah 38:9-17

My lord
<0113>
the king
<04428>_,
these men
<0582>
have done evil
<07489> (8689)
in all that they have done
<06213> (8804)
to Jeremiah
<03414>
the prophet
<05030>_,
whom they have cast
<07993> (8689)
into the dungeon
<0953>_;
and he is like to die
<04191> (8799)
for
<06440>
hunger
<07458>
in the place
<08478>
where he is: for [there is] no more bread
<03899>
in the city
<05892>_.
{he is like...: Heb. he will die}
Then the king
<04428>
commanded
<06680> (8762)
Ebedmelech
<05663>
the Ethiopian
<03569>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Take
<03947> (8798)
from hence thirty
<07970>
men
<0582>
with thee
<03027>_,
and take up
<05927> (8689)
Jeremiah
<03414>
the prophet
<05030>
out of the dungeon
<0953>_,
before he die
<04191> (8799)_.
{with thee: Heb. in thine hand}
So Ebedmelech
<05663>
took
<03947> (8799)
the men
<0582>
with him
<03027>_,
and went
<0935> (8799)
into the house
<01004>
of the king
<04428>
under the treasury
<0214>_,
and took
<03947> (8799)
thence old
<01094>
cast clouts
<05499>
and old
<01094>
rotten rags
<04418>_,
and let them down
<07971> (8762)
by cords
<02256>
into the dungeon
<0953>
to Jeremiah
<03414>_.
And Ebedmelech
<05663>
the Ethiopian
<03569>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Jeremiah
<03414>_,
Put
<07760> (8798)
now [these] old
<01094>
cast clouts
<05499>
and rotten rags
<04418>
under thine armholes
<0679> <03027>
under the cords
<02256>_.
And Jeremiah
<03414>
did
<06213> (8799)
so.
So they drew up
<04900> (8799)
Jeremiah
<03414>
with cords
<02256>_,
and took him up
<05927> (8686)
out of the dungeon
<0953>_:
and Jeremiah
<03414>
remained
<03427> (8799)
in the court
<02691>
of the prison
<04307>_.
Then Zedekiah
<06667>
the king
<04428>
sent
<07971> (8799)_,
and took
<03947> (8799)
Jeremiah
<03414>
the prophet
<05030>
unto him into the third
<07992>
entry
<03996>
that [is] in the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_:
and the king
<04428>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Jeremiah
<03414>_,
I will ask
<07592> (8802)
thee a thing
<01697>_;
hide
<03582> (8762)
nothing from me. {third: or, principal}
Then Jeremiah
<03414>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Zedekiah
<06667>_,
If I declare
<05046> (8686)
[it] unto thee, wilt thou not surely
<04191> (8687)
put me to death
<04191> (8686)_?
and if I give thee counsel
<03289> (8799)_,
wilt thou not hearken
<08085> (8799)
unto me?
So Zedekiah
<06667>
the king
<04428>
sware
<07650> (8735)
secretly
<05643>
unto Jeremiah
<03414>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
[As] the LORD
<03068>
liveth
<02416>_,
that made
<06213> (8804)
us this soul
<05315>_,
I will not put thee to death
<04191> (8686)_,
neither will I give
<05414> (8799)
thee into the hand
<03027>
of these men
<0582>
that seek
<01245> (8764)
thy life
<05315>_.
Then said
<0559> (8799)
Jeremiah
<03414>
unto Zedekiah
<06667>_,
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_,
the God
<0430>
of hosts
<06635>_,
the God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>_;
If thou wilt assuredly
<03318> (8800)
go forth
<03318> (8799)
unto the king
<04428>
of Babylon's
<0894>
princes
<08269>_,
then thy soul
<05315>
shall live
<02421> (8804)_,
and this city
<05892>
shall not be burned
<08313> (8735)
with fire
<0784>_;
and thou shalt live
<02421> (8804)_,
and thine house
<01004>_:
