Jeremiah 40:5 NAS

5 As Jeremiah was still not going back, he said, "Go on back then to 1Gedaliah the son of Ahikam, the son of Shaphan, whom the king of Babylon has 2appointed over the cities of Judah, and stay with him among the people; or else go anywhere it seems right for you to go." So the captain of the bodyguard gave him a 3ration and a 4gift and let him go.
