Jeremiah 40:2-4 International Standard Version (ISV)

The captain of the guard took Jeremiah and told him, “The Lord your God has predicted this disaster on this place. And now the Lord has brought it about and has done just as he said. Because you people sinned against the Lord and didn’t obey him, this has happened to you. Now, look, I’ve freed you today from the chains that were on your hands. If you want[a] to come with me to Babylon, come, and I’ll look after you. But if you don’t want[b] to come with me to Babylon, don’t.[c] Look, the whole land lies before you, so go wherever it seems good and right for you to go.”

Jeremiah 40:2-4 New International Version (NIV)

When the commander of the guard found Jeremiah, he said to him, “The Lord your God decreed this disaster for this place. And now the Lord has brought it about; he has done just as he said he would. All this happened because you people sinned against the Lord and did not obey him. But today I am freeing you from the chains on your wrists. Come with me to Babylon, if you like, and I will look after you; but if you do not want to, then don’t come. Look, the whole country lies before you; go wherever you please.”
