Jeremiah 38:6-13

A) Then took they Jeremiah, and cast him int the dungeon of Malchijah the son of Hammelech, that was in the court of the prison (v6)

B) And they let down Jeremiah with cords (v6). And in the dungeon there was no water, but mire: so Jeremiah sunk in the mire.

C) Now when Ebed-Melech the Ethiopian, one of the eunuchs which was in the king’s house  (v7)

D) Heard that they had put Jeremiah in the dungeon (v7); the king then sitting in the gate of Benjamin;

E) Ebed-Melech went forth out of the king’s house, and spake unto the king, saying, (v8)

F) My lord the king, these men have done evil in all that they have done to Jeremiah the prophet, whom they have cast  into the dungeon and he is like to die for hunger in the place where he is (v9)

G) Then the king commanded Ebed-Melech the Ethiopian, saying, Take from hence thirty men with thee, and take up Jeremiah the prophet out of the dungeon (v10)

f) Before he die (v10)

e) So Ebed-Melech took the men with him, and went into the house of the king under the treasury, (v11)

d) And took thence old cast clouts and old rotten rags, and let them down by cords into the dungeon to Jeremiah (v11)

c) And Ebed-Melech the Ethiopian said unto Jeremiah, put now these old cast clouts and rotten rags under thine armholes under the cords. And Jeremiah did so. (v12)

b) So they drew up Jeremiah with cords and took him out of the dungeon;  (v13)

a) And Jeremiah remained in the court of the prison (v13)
