Jeremiah 41 But in the seventh month of the year 1But in the seventh month of the year, Nethaniah’s son Ishmael went to Mizpah to visit Ahikam’s son Gedaliah. Ishmael was the grandson of Elishama who belonged to the royal family. He had been an officer who served King Zedekiah. Ishmael brought ten of his men with him. They were all eating a meal with Gedaliah in Mizpah. 2During the meal, Ishmael and his ten men stood up. They took hold of their swords and they killed Gedaliah, Ahikam’s son and grandson of Shaphan. Ishmael and his men killed the man that the king of Babylon had chosen to rule Judah. 3Ishmael also killed the men of Judah and the soldiers of Babylon who were there with Gedaliah. 4The next day, before anyone knew about Gedaliah’s murder, 580 men arrived in Mizpah. They had come from their homes in Shechem, Shiloh and Samaria. They brought grain offerings and incense to offer to the Lord in his temple. They had cut off their beards, torn their clothes and cut their skin to show that they were very upset. 6Nethaniah’s son Ishmael went out of the city to meet them. He was weeping as he went. When he met the men, he said to them, ‘Come with me to meet Ahikam’s son Gedaliah.’ 7So they all went into the city. Then Ishmael and his men killed them. They threw the dead bodies into a deep hole which stored water. 8But ten of the men said, ‘Please do not kill us! We have hidden lots of wheat, barley, olive oil and honey in a field. We will give it to you.’ So Ishmael let them stay alive. He did not kill them with the other men. 9Ishmael filled the deep hole with all the dead bodies of the men he had murdered. The hole had been built by King Asa to store water. Asa had dug holes like that to keep the city safe from King Baasha of Israel. 10Then Ishmael took hold of all the other people in Mizpah who were still alive. He made them his prisoners. These people included the king’s daughters, as well as all the other people who remained in Mizpah. Captain Nebuzaradan had said that Ahikam’s son Gedaliah would have authority over those people. But Ishmael took them away as his prisoners. He started to take them towards the land of Ammon. Ephesians 6:17 Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. https://temtube.com/
