Jeremiah 40:1-3 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
Jeremiah Still in Judah. 1 The word[a] which came to Jeremiah from the Lord, after Nebuzaradan, captain of the bodyguard, had released him in Ramah, where he found him a prisoner in chains among the captives of Jerusalem and Judah being exiled to Babylon. 2 The captain of the bodyguard took charge of Jeremiah and said to him, “The Lord, your God, decreed ruin for this place. 3 Now he has made it happen, accomplishing what he decreed; because you sinned against the Lord and did not listen to his voice, this decree has been realized against you.
