But in the seventh month, Ishmael son of Nethaniah son of Elishama, of the royal family, came with ten men; they struck down Gedaliah so that he died, along with the Judeans and Chaldeans who were with him at Mizpah.
Then all the people, high and low, and the captains of the forces set out and went to Egypt; for they were afraid of the Chaldeans.
