“The word of Yahweh
Came to Jeremiah
While he was confined
In the court of the guard.
Say to Ebed-melech,
Thus says Yahweh of hosts!
The God of Israel!
‘I am going to fulfill my words
Against this city
Not for good.
They shall be accomplished
In your presence
On that day.
But I will save you
On that day.’
‘You shall not be
To those whom you dread.
I will surely save you.
You shall not fall
By the sword.
But you shall have
As a prize of war.
Because you have trusted
Perhaps this oracle should have been at the end of chapter 38, but it is here. Jeremiah is still in the royal prison as he gets this oracle about the Ethiopian eunuch Ebed-melech, who had saved him from starvation and death in the cistern well. Jeremiah was to go to Ebed-melech to tell him what Yahweh had told him. Yahweh was going to destroy Jerusalem because of its evil ways, in the sight of this Ethiopian. However, the God of Israel was going to save him as he would not be handed over to the Babylonians to die by the sword. Ebed-melech was going to save his life as a prize of war. This usually meant that he would be taken into captivity with the king of Judah. His life would be saved because he trusted in Yahweh.
