7 H5663 Now when Ebedmelech H3569 the Cushite, H376 one H5631 of the eunuchs H4428 who was in the king's H1004 house, H8085 [H8799] heard H5414 [H8804] that they had put H3414 Jeremiah H953 in the dungeon; H4428 the king H3427 [H8802] then sitting H8179 in the gate H1144 of Benjamin;
8 H5663 Ebedmelech H3318 [H8799] went H4428 out of the king's H1004 house, H1696 [H8762] and spoke H4428 to the king, H559 [H8800] saying,
9 H113 My lord H4428 the king, H582 these men H7489 [H8689] have done evil H6213 [H8804] in all that they have done H3414 to Jeremiah H5030 the prophet, H7993 [H8689] whom they have cast H953 into the dungeon; H4191 [H8799] and he is certain to die H6440 from H7458 hunger H8478 in the place H3899 where he is: for there is no more bread H5892 in the city.
10 H4428 Then the king H6680 [H8762] commanded H5663 Ebedmelech H3569 the Cushite, H559 [H8800] saying, H3947 [H8798] Take H7970 from here thirty H582 men H3027 with thee, H5927 [H8689] and take up H3414 Jeremiah H5030 the prophet H953 out of the dungeon, H4191 [H8799] before he dieth.
11 H5663 So Ebedmelech H3947 [H8799] took H582 the men H3027 with him, H935 [H8799] and went H1004 into the house H4428 of the king H214 under the treasury, H3947 [H8799] and took H1094 from there old H5499 clothes H1094 and old H4418 rags, H7971 [H8762] and let them down H2256 by cords H953 into the dungeon H3414 to Jeremiah.
12 H5663 And Ebedmelech H3569 the Cushite H559 [H8799] said H3414 to Jeremiah, H7760 [H8798] Put H1094 now these old H5499 clothes H4418 and old rags H679 H3027 under thy arms H2256 under the cords. H3414 And Jeremiah H6213 [H8799] did so.
