“The captain of the guard
He said to him.
‘Yahweh your God
Threatened this place
With this disaster.
Has brought it about.
He has done
As he said.
Because all of you
Sinned against Yahweh.
You did not obey his voice.
Therefore this thing
Has come upon you.
I have just released you today
From the fetters
On your hands.
If you wish
To come with me
I will take good care of you.
But if you do not wish
To come with me
You need not come!
The whole land is before you.
You think it good
Or right to go!’”
Jeremiah is finally recognized by Nebuzaradan, the captain of the guard, who took him aside. He said to Jeremiah that his God Yahweh had threatened this place and made that threat come true. This happened because they were sinning in Jerusalem and Judah. They had not obeyed their God. This Babylonian captain then released Jeremiah from the chains around his hands. Here is where it gets interesting. He offers Jeremiah a choice. He could go to Babylon, where he would be taken care of, or he could stay in Judah, where the whole land would be his. The captain of the guard told Jeremiah to decide on what was right and good for him. The choice was up to Jeremiah, but it seemed obvious that Jeremiah would stay.
