Jeremiah 40 Jeremiah becomes free 1The Lord spoke to Jeremiah again after Captain Nebuzaradan let him go free at Ramah. Jeremiah was with all the other people of Jerusalem and Judah that Captain Nebuzaradan was taking to Babylon. He was taking them in chains, as his prisoners. But he removed the chains from Jeremiah in Ramah. 2He said this to Jeremiah when they were alone: ‘The Lord your God warned your people that he would bring trouble to this place. 3Now he has done that. The Lord has done what he promised to do. He sent this trouble because your people did not obey the Lord. They turned against him. 4But today I am taking the chains off your hands so that you can go free. You can come with me to Babylon, if you choose to do that. If you come, I will take care of you. But if you do not choose to come with me, you do not have to do that. You are a free man. You may go to any part of the land that you choose.’ 5But before Jeremiah turned away from him, Captain Nebuzaradan said, ‘Return to Ahikam’s son Gedaliah. The king of Babylon chose him to rule over the towns of Judah. Go and live with Gedaliah, among the people of Judah. Or you may go to any other place that you choose.’ Captain Nebuzaradan gave Jeremiah some food and a gift. Then he let him go. 6So Jeremiah went to live with Gedaliah in Mizpah. He stayed among the few people who continued to live in Judah. Ephesians 6:12 For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.
