Jeremiah 38:9-10; Jeremiah 38:14
"My lord the king," he said, "these men have done a very evil thing in putting Jeremiah the prophet into the cistern. He will soon die of hunger, for almost all the bread in the city is gone."
So the king told Ebed-melech, "Take along thirty of my men, and pull Jeremiah out of the cistern before he dies."
One day King Zedekiah sent for Jeremiah to meet him at the third entrance of the LORD's Temple. "I want to ask you something," the king said. "And don't try to hide the truth."
