Gedaliah Is Murdered

1 In R2037 the seventh month Ishmael R2038 the son of Nethaniah, the son of Elishama, of the royal family F403 and one of the chief officers of the king, along with ten men, came to Mizpah to Gedaliah R2039 the son of Ahikam. While they were R2040 eating bread together there in Mizpah, 2 Ishmael the son of Nethaniah and the ten men who were with him arose and struck R2041 down Gedaliah the son of Ahikam, the son of Shaphan, with the sword and put R2042 to death the one whom R2043 the king of Babylon had appointed over the land. 3 Ishmael also struck down all the Jews who were with him, that is with Gedaliah at Mizpah, and the Chaldeans who were found there, the men of war.

4 Now it happened on the next F404 day after the killing of Gedaliah, when no one knew about it, 5 that eighty men came R2044 from Shechem, R2045 from Shiloh, R2046 and from Samaria R2047 with their R2048 beards shaved off and their clothes torn and their F405 bodies gashed, R2049 having grain offerings and incense in their hands to bring to the house R2050 of the LORD. 6 Then Ishmael the son of Nethaniah went out from Mizpah to meet them, weeping R2051 as he went; and as he met them, he said to them, "Come to Gedaliah the son of Ahikam!" 7 Yet it turned out that as soon as they came inside the city, Ishmael the son of Nethaniah and the men that were with him slaughtered R2052 them and cast them into the cistern. 8 But ten men who were found among them said to Ishmael, "Do not put us to death; for we have stores R2053 of wheat, barley, oil and honey hidden in the field." So he refrained and did not put them to death along with their companions.

9 Now as for the cistern where Ishmael had cast all the corpses of the men whom he had struck down because F406 of Gedaliah, it was the one R2054 that King Asa had made on account R2055 of Baasha, king of Israel; Ishmael the son of Nethaniah filled it with the slain. 10 Then Ishmael took captive all the remnant R2056 of the people who were in Mizpah, the king's R2057 daughters and all the people who were left in Mizpah, whom Nebuzaradan the captain of the bodyguard had put under the charge of Gedaliah the son of Ahikam; thus Ishmael the son of Nethaniah took them captive and proceeded to cross over to the sons of Ammon. R2058

Johanan Rescues the People

11 But Johanan the son of Kareah and all the commanders R2059 of the forces that were with him heard of all the evil that Ishmael the son of Nethaniah had done. 12 So they took all the men and went to fight R2060 with Ishmael the son of Nethaniah and they found him by the great R2061 pool F407 that is in Gibeon. 13 Now as soon as all the people who were with Ishmael saw Johanan the son of Kareah and the commanders of the forces that were with him, they were glad. 14 So all the people whom Ishmael had taken captive from Mizpah turned around and came back, and went to Johanan the son of Kareah. 15 But Ishmael the son of Nethaniah escaped R2062 from Johanan with eight men and went to the sons of Ammon. 16 Then Johanan the son of Kareah and all the commanders of the forces that were with him took from Mizpah all R2063 the remnant of the people whom he had recovered F408 from Ishmael the son of Nethaniah, after he had struck down Gedaliah the son of Ahikam, that is, the men who were soldiers, F409 the women, the children, F410 and the eunuchs, whom he had brought back from Gibeon. 17 And they went and stayed in Geruth R2064 F411 Chimham, which is beside Bethlehem, in order to proceed R2065 into Egypt 18 because of the Chaldeans; for they were afraid R2066 of them, since Ishmael the son of Nethaniah had struck down Gedaliah the son of Ahikam, whom the R2067 king of Babylon had appointed over the land.
