Jeremiah 40:4-6 Living Bible (TLB)
4 Now I am going to take off your chains and let you go. If you want to come with me to Babylon, fine; I will see that you are well cared for. But if you don’t want to come, don’t. The world is before you—go where you like. 5 If you decide to stay, then return to Gedaliah, who has been appointed as governor of Judah by the king of Babylon, and stay with the remnant he rules. But it’s up to you; go where you like.”
Then Nebuzaradan gave Jeremiah some food and money and let him go. 6 So Jeremiah returned to Gedaliah and lived in Judah with the people left in the land.
