Jeremiah 41

CLICK HERE to read Jeremiah 41.

When the rulers under the king of Babylon came back to the fields to check the harvest (verse 1), they confronted those who had planned the conspiracy (verse 2). They killed them, even the Jews and the Chaldeans both, and all who had been involved (verse 3). They killed so many that word did not even get out that it had happened (verse 4).

Another group was traveling through, prepared with offerings and incense to go to the temple (verse 5), and they were also killed (verse 6) and their bodies thrown in a pit (verse 7). All were killed, except for ten men who promised more wealth from more harvest (verse 8). Everyone else was killed and thrown into the pit (verse 9). Then they carried off captive all the survivor’s, including the king’s daughters, and headed towards the Ammonites (verse 10).

When the first group, who had warned of their danger, heard what happened (verse 11), they went to fight them (verse 12). Those who had been taken captive rejoiced to see their defense arrive (verse 13), and went away with their rescuers (verse 14). The one who started all the trouble escaped, and went to hide among the Ammonites (verse 15).

The survivors gathered together (verse 16) and left by way of Bethlehem to go toward Egypt (verse 17) because now they were afraid of the Chaldeans and those poor who had been left to inherit the land (verse 18).

About Emily

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 2009. I serve as a Chaplain, and work as a counselor. I got bilateral cochlear implants in 2010, but will always love sign language. I choose books over television, and organics over processed. Nothing is as close to flying as ballroom dancing - except maybe running, when in the solo mood. I would rather be outside than anywhere else, especially at the river riding my bike or kayaking. PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy, and currently doing a post-doc in Jewish Studies and an MDiv in Pastoral Counseling. The best thing about Emily World is that it's always an adventure, even if (not so) grammatically precise. The only thing better than writing is being married to a writer. Nathan Christensen and I were married in the Oklahoma City temple on 13 October 2012, and have since fostered more than eighty-five children. We have adopted the six who stayed, and are totally and completely and helplessly in love with our family. Nathan writes musical theater, including "Broadcast" (a musical history of the radio) and an adaption of Lois Lowry's "The Giver". He served his mission in South Korea, has taught song-writing in New York City public schools, and worked as a theater critic for a Tucson newspaper.
