Jeremiah Thrown into a Cistern

38 Now Shephatiah son of Mattan, Gedaliah son of Pashhur, Jucal[a] son of Shelemiah,(A) and Pashhur son of Malchijah heard the words Jeremiah was speaking to all the people: “This is what the Lord says: ‘Whoever stays in this city will die by the sword, famine, and plague,(B) but whoever surrenders to the Chaldeans will live.(C) He will retain his life like the spoils of war and will live.’(D) This is what the Lord says: ‘This city will most certainly be handed over to the king of Babylon’s army,(E) and he will capture it.’”
