Jeremiah 41


41:1 Now it came to pass in the seventh month, [that] Ishmael
 the son of Nethaniah the son of Elishama, of the seed royal,
 and the princes of the king, even ten men with him, came to
 Gedaliah the son of Ahikam to Mizpah; and there they ate bread
 together in Mizpah.
41:2 Then arose Ishmael the son of Nethaniah, and the ten men
 that were with him, and smote Gedaliah the son of Ahikam, the
 son of Shaphan with the sword, and slew him, whom the king of
 Babylon had made governor over the land.
41:3 Ishmael also slew all the Jews that were with him, [even]
 with Gedaliah, at Mizpah, and the Chaldeans that were found
 there, [and] the men of war.
41:4 And it came to pass the second day after he had slain
 Gedaliah, and no man knew [it],
41:5 That there came men from Shechem, from Shiloh, and from
 Samaria, [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.
41:6 And Ishmael the son of Nethaniah went forth from Mizpah to
 meet them, weeping all along as he went: and it came to pass,
 as he met them, he said to them, Come to Gedaliah the son of
 Ahikam.
41:7 And it was [so], when they came into the midst of the city,
 that Ishmael the son of Nethaniah slew them, [and cast them]
 into the midst of the pit, he, and the men that [were] with
 him.
41:8 But ten men were found among them that said to Ishmael,
 Slay us not: for we have treasures in the field, of wheat, and
 of barley, and of oil, and of honey. So he forbore, and slew
 them not among their brethren.
41:9 Now the pit into which Ishmael had cast all the dead bodies
 of the men, whom he had slain because of Gedaliah, [was] that
 which Asa the king had made for fear of Baasha king of Israel:
 [and] Ishmael the son of Nethaniah filled it with [them that
 were] slain.
41:10 Then Ishmael carried away captive all the residue of the
 people that [were] in Mizpah, [even] the king's daughters, and
 all the people that remained in Mizpah, whom Nebuzar-adan the
 captain of the guard had committed to Gedaliah the son of
 Ahikam: and Ishmael the son of Nethaniah carried them away
 captive, and departed to go over to the Ammonites.
41:11 But when Johanan the son of Kareah, and all the captains
 of the forces that [were] with him, heard of all the evil that
 Ishmael the son of Nethaniah had done.
41:12 Then they took all the men, and went to fight with Ishmael
 the son of Nethaniah, and found him by the great waters that
 [are] in Gibeon.
41:13 Now it came to pass, [that] when all the people who [were]
 with Ishmael saw Johanan the son of Kareah, and all the
 captains of the forces that [were] with him, then they were
 glad.
41:14 So all the people that Ishmael had carried away captive
 from Mizpah cast about and returned, and went to Johanan the
 son of Kareah.
41:15 But Ishmael the son of Nethaniah escaped from Johanan with
 eight men, and went to the Ammonites.
41:16 Then Johanan the son of Kareah, and all the captains of
 the forces that [were] with him, took all the remnant of the
 people whom he had recovered from Ishmael the son of Nethaniah,
 from Mizpeh, after [that] he had slain Gedaliah the son of
 Ahikam, [even] mighty men of war, and the women, and the
 children, and the eunuchs, whom he had brought again from
 Gibeon.
41:17 And they departed, and dwelt in the habitation of Chimham,
 which [is] by Beth-lehem, to go to enter into Egypt,
41:18 Because of the Chaldeans: for they were afraid of them,
 because Ishmael the son of Nethaniah had slain Gedaliah the son
 of Ahikam, whom the king of Babylon made governor in the land.
