Holy Bible book of
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 unto Gedaliah the son of Ahikam to Mizpah; and there they
did eat bread together in Mizpah.
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.
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.
4 And it came to pass the second day after he had slain Gedaliah, and no man
5 That there came certain from Shechem, from Shiloh, and from Samaria, even
fourscore 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.
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
unto them, Come to Gedaliah the son of Ahikam.
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.
8 But ten men were found among them that said unto Ishmael, Slay us not: for
we have treasures in the field, of wheat, and of barley, and of oil, and of
honey. So he forbare, and slew them not among their brethren.
9 Now the pit wherein Ishmael had cast all the dead bodies of the men, whom he
had slain because of Gedaliah, was it 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.
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 Nebuzaradan 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.
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
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.
13 Now it came to pass, that when all the people which were with Ishmael saw
Johanan the son of Kareah, and all the captains of the forces that were with
him, then they were glad.
14 So all the people that Ishmael had carried away captive from Mizpah cast
about and returned, and went unto Johanan the son of Kareah.
15 But Ishmael the son of Nethaniah escaped from Johanan with eight men, and
went to the Ammonites.
16 Then took Johanan the son of Kareah, and all the captains of the forces
that were with him, all the remnant of the people whom he had recovered from
Ishmael the son of Nethaniah, from Mizpah, 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:
17 And they departed, and dwelt in the habitation of Chimham, which is by
Bethlehem, to go to enter into Egypt,
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.
