Jeremiah 39

In the ninth year of Zedekiah king of Judah, in the tenth month, came Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon and all his army against Jerusalem, and they besieged it.

And in the eleventh year of Zedekiah, in the fourth month, the ninth day of the month, the city was broken up.

And all the princes of the king of Babylon came in, and sat in the middle gate, even Nergalsharezer, Samgarnebo, Sarsechim, Rabsaris, Nergalsharezer, Rabmag, with all the residue of the princes of the king of Babylon.

And it came to pass, that when Zedekiah the king of Judah saw them, and all the men of war, then they fled, and went forth out of the city by night, by the way of the king’s garden, by the gate betwixt the two walls: and he went out the way of the plain.

But the Chaldeans’ army pursued after them, and overtook Zedekiah in the plains of Jericho: and when they had taken him, they brought him up to Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon to Riblah in the land of Hamath, where he gave judgment upon him.

Then the king of Babylon slew the sons of Zedekiah in Riblah before his eyes: also the king of Babylon slew all the nobles of Judah.

Moreover he put out Zedekiah’s eyes, and bound him with chains, to carry him to Babylon.

And the Chaldeans burned the king’s house, and the houses of the people, with fire, and brake down the walls of Jerusalem.

Then Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard carried away captive into Babylon the remnant of the people that remained in the city, and those that fell away, that fell to him, with the rest of the people that remained.

10 But Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard left of the poor of the people, which had nothing, in the land of Judah, and gave them vineyards and fields at the same time.

11 Now Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon gave charge concerning Jeremiah to Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard, saying,

12 Take him, and look well to him, and do him no harm; but do unto him even as he shall say unto thee.

13 So Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard sent, and Nebushasban, Rabsaris, and Nergalsharezer, Rabmag, and all the king of Babylon’s princes;

14 Even they sent, and took Jeremiah out of the court of the prison, and committed him unto Gedaliah the son of Ahikam the son of Shaphan, that he should carry him home: so he dwelt among the people.

15 Now the word of the Lord came unto Jeremiah, while he was shut up in the court of the prison, saying,

16 Go and speak to Ebedmelech the Ethiopian, saying, Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will bring my words upon this city for evil, and not for good; and they shall be accomplished in that day before thee.

17 But I will deliver thee in that day, saith the Lord: and thou shalt not be given into the hand of the men of whom thou art afraid.

18 For I will surely deliver thee, and thou shalt not fall by the sword, but thy life shall be for a prey unto thee: because thou hast put thy trust in me, saith the Lord.

  1. 18 For I will surely deliver thee, and thou shalt not fall by the sword, but thy life shall be for a prey unto thee: because thou hast put thy trust in me, saith the Lord.

    In You oh Lord I trust.

  2. Verses 17-18 CEV “But because you trusted me,[n] I will protect you from the officials of Judah, and when Judah is struck by disaster, I will rescue you and keep you alive. I, the Lord, have spoken.” Trust: firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability, or strength of someone or something.

    Proverbs 3:5 CEV “With all your heart you must trust the Lord and not your own judgment.”

    Psalm 9:10 AMP “And those who know Your name [who have experienced Your precious mercy] will put their confident trust in You, For You, O Lord, have not abandoned those who seek You.”

  4. THY KINGDOM COME

    15 Now the word of the Lord came unto Jeremiah, while he was shut up in the court of the prison, saying,

    Regardless of location or situation, when The Kingdom of GOD arrives, there will be a WORD from GOD. We must not be deceived and fall into the trap of GOD can’t because.

    Our adversary would attempt to deceive into believing that our location or situation will hinder us from the WORD of the LORD. However as we witness here with Jeremiah, if we will listen for the voice of the LORD; HE will speak to us.

    Life or circumstance may seem to have you locked up, but don’t fear. The Kingdom of GOD comes with HIS power and authority to speak, heal and deliver.

  5. 17 But I will deliver thee in that day, saith the Lord: and thou shalt not be given into the hand of the men of whom thou art afraid.

    18 For I will surely deliver thee, and thou shalt not fall by the sword, but thy life shall be for a prey unto thee: because thou hast put thy trust in me, saith the Lord.

    You GOD I put my trust in you I know you are a way Maker I will put my trust in you
    Trust in the Lord always, for the Lord God is the eternal Rock.
    Isaiah 26:4 NLT

  6. Jeremiah 39:18 (English Amp) For I will surely deliver you; and you will not fall by the sword, but your life will be [ as your only booty and] as a reward of battles to you, Because you have put your trust in Me, says the Lord. In you Lord I will always trust in you for everything. Lord your only way, The Lord will always be here for you, when there’s no one else. Dont give up put your trust in the Lord always.

  7. 39:5 but the Chaldean’ army pursued after them,and overtook Zedekiah in the plains of Jericho: and when they had taken him they brought him up to Nebuchadnezzar King of Babylon to Riblah in the land of Hamath where he gave judgment upon him.
    👉Where he gave judgment upon him…..
    He did not listen to the man of God. He did not like what the man of God said, he did it his way, ultimately he paid the cue sequence of his actions.
    ———

    Lord help me search my heart today , show me my faults, the things that are displeasing to you…

    I Pray
    I repent
    I listen
    I obey

  8. 11 Now Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon gave charge concerning Jeremiah to Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard, saying,
    12 Take him, and look well to him, and do him no harm; but do unto him even as he shall say unto thee.

    God had his hand on Jeremiah even though speaking the truth and God’s word landed him in the prison. He know is delivered and still has a word to deliver to a man who put his trust in the Lord God. I believe that if we keep holding to the truth and to the hand of God, he will deliver us out of all tribulations. We must look through eyes of faith when we are in that valley and believe God is up to something.

  9. Then the king of Babylon slew the sons of Zedekiah in Riblah before his eyes: also the king of Babylon slew all the nobles of Judah. Moreover he put out Zedekiah’s eyes, and bound him with chains, to carry him to Babylon.
    Jeremiah 39:6‭-‬7 KJV

    Zedekiah refused the Word of God and tried to do things his own way. Because of this, he suffered far worse than he had to suffer. God’s way is always the easiest way on us in the end. Turning himself over to the enemy looked like a way that was too hard for Zedekiah to accept. Yet, after having to watch his children killed, having his eyes put out (insuring the death of his sons was the last thing he ever saw), and then going into captivity anyway, it is easy to see in hindsight that God’s way was the easy way after all. We will never find a better way than doing things God’s way. It will always be in our best interest to obey God’s Word.

  10. iLove the Kingdom

    This chapter is so sad. Yep, Jerusalem is destroyed and the walls are broken down. All the king’s children are killed right in front of him and then the kings eyes are put out. All these things happened for the simple reason that the king refused to repent. If only the king would have repented and would have turned the city back to the Lord, God’s judgement could have been pushed away. If only the king would not have listened to the false prophets, things could have been different.

    This is the price of disobedience. Wow, I think I’ll pass on that…

  11. 17 But I will deliver thee in that day, saith the Lord: and thou shalt not be given into the hand of the men of whom thou art afraid.

    18 For I will surely deliver thee, and thou shalt not fall by the sword, but thy life shall be for a prey unto thee: because thou hast put thy trust in me, saith the Lord.

  12. Then the king of Babylon slew the sons of Zedekiah in Riblah before his eyes: also the king of Babylon slew all the nobles of Judah.
    Jeremiah 39:6 KJV
    https://bible.com/bible/1/jer.39.6.KJV
    What a terrible price to pay for disobedience to God’s Word. I don’t think it could get much worse than seeing your kids die. Our sins not only affect us but those around us and especially those closest to us.

  13. I Love To Worship The Lord
    Zedekiahs fate
    (6-8)
    The brutal treatment of the king was not unusual in ancient times especially considering the trouble caused by Judahs chronic rebelliousness. The blinding shows how to seemingly contradictory prophcies were fulfilled. Jeremiah told Zedekiah he would see the King of Babylon and be taken there and Ezekiel predicated Zedekiah would die in Babylon with out seeing it .

  14. 15 Now the word of the Lord came unto Jeremiah, while he was shut up in the court of the prison, saying,
    16 Go and speak to Ebedmelech the Ethiopian, saying, Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will bring my words upon this city for evil, and not for good; and they shall be accomplished in that day before thee.
    17 But I will deliver thee in that day, saith the Lord: and thou shalt not be given into the hand of the men of whom thou art afraid.
    18 For I will surely deliver thee, and thou shalt not fall by the sword, but thy life shall be for a prey unto thee: because thou hast put thy trust in me, saith the Lord

    Listen the man of God in your life.

  15. Jeremiah 39
    It’s always best to TRUST in the Lord for He will DELIVER you in your time of trouble… (Ebedmelech)
    because King Zedekiah didn’t trust in the Lord, when trouble came, his sons were killed before his eyes, his own eyes were put out, and he was bound with chains and carried away.

    TRUST IN THE LORD!!

  16. 18 For I will surely deliver thee, and thou shalt not fall by the sword, but thy life shall be for a prey unto thee: because thou hast put thy trust in me, saith the Lord.

  17. 18 For I will surely deliver thee, and thou shalt not fall by the sword, but thy life shall be for a prey unto thee: because thou hast put thy trust in me, saith the Lord.

    God is so good and his Mercy is everlasting. When I’m in trouble he is able to bring me out!

  18. 15 Now the word of the Lord came unto Jeremiah, while he was shut up in the court of the prison, saying,

    16 Go and speak to Ebedmelech the Ethiopian, saying, Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will bring my words upon this city for evil, and not for good; and they shall be accomplished in that day before thee.

    17 But I will deliver thee in that day, saith the Lord: and thou shalt not be given into the hand of the men of whom thou art afraid.

    18 For I will surely deliver thee, and thou shalt not fall by the sword, but thy life shall be for a prey unto thee: because thou hast put thy trust in me, saith the Lord.

    Even though evil was prophesied to the Israelites, one man found favor and God sent Jeremiah the prophet to let him know of that favor with a word of protection and provision.

    If we do what’s right God will deliver us from the hand of the enemy and protect us. Even in the midst of all hell breaking loose, we will have a breakthrough.

  19. 17 But I will deliver thee in that day, saith the Lord: and thou shalt not be given into the hand of the men of whom thou art afraid.
    18 For I will surely deliver thee, and thou shalt not fall by the sword, but thy life shall be for a prey unto thee: because thou hast put thy trust in me, saith the Lord.

  20. Because you trusted me, I will give you your life as a reward. I will rescue you and keep you safe. I, the Lord , have spoken!’”(Jeremiah 39 :18 NLT)

    When we put all our trust in God and we allow him to move on our behalf. When our faith is in Him he becomes our protector and provider. For this he rescues those few who will rely and trust in him to care for his land until their people return again to rebuild it.

  21. 10 But Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard left of the poor of the people, which had nothing, in the land of Judah, and gave them vineyards and fields at the same time.

    In this final siege of Judah, Jerusalem is totally destroyed and all the remaining people fall captive except for the poor small remant. Babylon’s cunning foreign policy towards conquered lands calls for deporting the powerful and wealthy, leaving a few destitute citizens in charge of the land. This policy assures that the gratefully indebited poor are to fearful to revolt and remain loyal to their conquerors and that the devastated exiles remain too weak to rebelm

  22. 18 For I will surely deliver thee, and thou shalt not fall by the sword, but thy life shall be for a prey unto thee: because thou hast put thy trust in me, saith the Lord.

    When we put our trust in Him he will take care of us. Let some trust in horses and chariots we will trust in the name of the Lord.

  23. In the ninth year of Zedekiah king of Judah, in the tenth month, came Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon and all his army against Jerusalem, and they besieged it.

    2 And in the eleventh year of Zedekiah, in the fourth month, the ninth day of the month, the city was broken up.

    3 And all the princes of the king of Babylon came in, and sat in the middle gate, even Nergalsharezer, Samgarnebo, Sarsechim, Rabsaris, Nergalsharezer, Rabmag, with all the residue of the princes of the king of Babylon.

    4 And it came to pass, that when Zedekiah the king of Judah saw them, and all the men of war, then they fled, and went forth out of the city by night, by the way of the king’s garden, by the gate betwixt the two walls: and he went out the way of the plain.

    5 But the Chaldeans’ army pursued after them, and overtook Zedekiah in the plains of Jericho: and when they had taken him, they brought him up to Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon to Riblah in the land of Hamath, where he gave judgment upon him.

    6 Then the king of Babylon slew the sons of Zedekiah in Riblah before his eyes: also the king of Babylon slew all the nobles of Judah.

    7 Moreover he put out Zedekiah’s eyes, and bound him with chains, to carry him to Babylon.

    8 And the Chaldeans burned the king’s house, and the houses of the people, with fire, and brake down the walls of Jerusalem.

    9 Then Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard carried away captive into Babylon the remnant of the people that remained in the city, and those that fell away, that fell to him, with the rest of the people that remained.

    10 But Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard left of the poor of the people, which had nothing, in the land of Judah, and gave them vineyards and fields at the same time.

    Jerusalem was so strong, that the inhabitants believed the enemy could never enter it. But sin provoked God to withdraw his protection, and then it was as weak as other cities. Zedekiah had his eyes put out; so he was condemned to darkness who had shut his eyes against the clear light of God’s word. Those who will not believe God’s words, will be convinced by the event. Observe the wonderful changes of Providence, how uncertain are earthly possessions; and see the just dealings of Providence: but whether the Lord makes men poor or rich, nothing will profit them while they cleave to their sins.

  24. 18Because you trusted me, I will give you your life as a reward. I will rescue you and keep you safe. I, the LORD, have spoken!’”

  25. 16 Go and speak to Ebedmelech the Ethiopian, saying, Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will bring my words upon this city for evil, and not for good; and they shall be accomplished in that day before thee.

    17 But I will deliver thee in that day, saith the Lord: and thou shalt not be given into the hand of the men of whom thou art afraid.

    18 For I will surely deliver thee, and thou shalt not fall by the sword, but thy life shall be for a prey unto thee: because thou hast put thy trust in me, saith the Lord.

    Putting our trust in God we will do what is right even when it seems hard. The blessing will be when the Lord looks after you and delivers you. Trust Him now and be sure to rejoice later

  26. 18 For I will surely deliver thee, and thou shalt not fall by the sword, but thy life shall be for a prey unto thee: because thou hast put thy trust in me, saith the Lord.

    The Lord has surely delivered us!! Thank You Jesus!
