was in the king's house, heard that they had put Jeremiah in the
dungeon; the king then sitting in the gate of Benjamin;
JER 38:8 Ebedmelech went forth out of the king's house, and spake to
the king saying,
JER 38:9 My lord the king, these men have done evil in all that they
have done to Jeremiah the prophet, whom they have cast into the dungeon;
and he is like to die for hunger in the place where he is: for there is
no more bread in the city.
JER 38:10 Then the king commanded Ebedmelech the Ethiopian, saying,
Take from hence thirty men with thee, and take up Jeremiah the prophet
out of the dungeon, before he die.
