7 Forsooth Ebedmelech (the) Ethiopian, a chaste man and honest, heard, that was in the king's house, that they had sent Jeremy into the pit; soothly the king (then) sat in the gate of Benjamin. (But Ebedmelech the Ethiopian, an honest and chaste servant, that is, a eunuch, who was in the king's house, or the palace, heard that they had sent Jeremiah into the pit; and the king then sat at the Benjamin Gate.)
