While they dwere eating° bread° together° there° in Mizpah°, 2 Ishmael° the son° of Nethaniah° and the ten° men° who° were with him arose° and astruck° down° Gedaliah° the son° of Ahikam°, the son° of Shaphan°, with the sword° and bput° to death° the one cwhom° the king° of Babylon° had appointed° over the land°. 3 Ishmael° also struck° down° all° the Jews° who° were with him, [that is] with Gedaliah° at Mizpah°, and the Chaldeans° who° were found° there°, the men° of war°.

Ishmael, treacherously killing Gedaliah and others, purposeth with the residue to flee unto the Ammonites.
1 ¶ Now it came to pass² in the seventhº month,º [that] Ishmaelº the sonº of Nethaniahº the sonº of Elishama,º of the seedº² royal,º and the princesº of the king,º even tenº men¹² with² him, cameºª unto² Gedaliahº the sonº of Ahikamº to Mizpah;¹² and there² they did eatºª breadº togetherº in Mizpah.¹² 2 Then aroseºª Ishmaelº the sonº of Nethaniah,º and the tenº men¹² that² were² with² him, and smoteºª² Gedaliahº the sonº of Ahikamº the sonº of Shaphanº with the sword,º and slewºª him, whom² the kingº of Babylonº had made governorºª over the land.º 3 Ishmaelº also slewºª all² the Jewsº that² were² with² him, [even] with² Gedaliah,º at Mizpah,º and the Chaldeansº that² were foundºª there,² [and] the men¹² of war.º 4 And it came to pass² the secondº dayº after he had slainºª² Gedaliah,º and no² manº knewºª [it], 5 That there cameºª certain¹² from Shechem,º² from Shiloh,º² and from Samaria,º² [even] fourscoreº men,º having their beardsº shaven,ºª and their clothesº rent,ºª and having cut¹ª themselves,² with offeringsº and incenseº in their hand,º to bringºª [them] to the houseº of the LORD.º 6 And Ishmaelº the sonº of Nethaniahº went forthºª from² Mizpahº to meetºª them, weepingºª all along¹ª as he went:ºª and it came to pass,² as he metºª them, he saidºª unto² them, Comeºª to² Gedaliahº the sonº of Ahikam.º 7 And it was² [so], when they cameºª into² the midstº of the city,º that Ishmaelº the sonº of Nethaniahº slewºª them, [and cast them] into² the midstº of the pit,º he,² and the men¹² that² [were] with² him. 8 But tenº men¹² were foundºª among them that saidºª unto² Ishmael,º Slayºª us not:² for² we haveº treasuresº in the field,º of wheat,º and of barley,º and of oil,º and of honey.º So he forbare,ºª and slewºª them not² amongº their brethren.º 9 Now the pitº wherein²² Ishmaelº had castºª² all² the dead bodiesº of the men,¹² whom² he had slainºª becauseº of Gedaliah,º [was] it² which² Asaº the kingº had madeºª for fearº² of Baashaº kingº of Israel:º [and] Ishmaelº the sonº of Nethaniahº filledºª it with [them that were] slain.º 10 Then Ishmaelº carried away captiveºª² all² the residueº of the peopleº that² [were] in Mizpah,º [even]² the king'sº daughters,º and all² the peopleº that remainedºª in Mizpah,º whom² Nebuzaradanº the captainº of the guardº had committedºª to² Gedaliahº the sonº of Ahikam:º and Ishmaelº the sonº of Nethaniahº carried them away captive,ºª and departed¹ª² to go overºª to² the Ammonites.ºº

Johanan recovereth the captives, and mindeth to flee into Egypt.
