Jeremiah 38:6-9 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
6 So they took Jeremiah and put him into the cistern of Malkijah, the king's son, which was in the courtyard of the guard.1 They lowered Jeremiah by ropes2 into the cistern; it had no water in it,3 only mud, and Jeremiah sank down into the mud.4 7 But Ebed-Melech,5 a Cushite,a an officialb6 in the royal palace, heard that they had put Jeremiah into the cistern. While the king was sitting in the Benjamin Gate,7 8 Ebed-Melech went out of the palace and said to him, 9 "My lord the king, these men have acted wickedly in all they have done to Jeremiah the prophet. They have thrown him into a cistern,8 where he will starve to death when there is no longer any bread9 in the city."
