Ishmael escapes to Ammon (Jer 41:15-41:15)

“But Ishmael,

The son of Nethaniah,

Escaped from Johanan

With eight men.

They went

To the Ammonites.”

Unfortunately this little escapade does not have a happy ending. Ishmael with 8 out of 10 of his trusty troops got away. They went to King Baalis in Ammon on the other side of the Jordan River.
