Jeremiah 39:12

Jeremiah 39:12

Take him, and look well to him
Take him out of prison; take him under your immediate care; receive him kindly, and use him humanely; provide everything necessary for him, and let him not want for anything: or, "set thine eyes upon him" F13 look pleasantly at him, and let him be always under your view and inspection; treat him not with neglect and contempt, but see to it that nothing is wanting to him: and do him no harm;
no injury to his person by beating, imprisoning, or starving him; nor suffer any to be done to him by the common soldiers, or by his own people: but do unto him even as he shall say unto thee:
let him have whatever he asks for: this was great favour from a Heathen prince indeed, and more than he met with from his own countrymen.
