Jeremiah, Chapter 39
THE FALL OF JERUSALEM
For many years, God's prophets had foretold the fall of the wicked city of God’s chosen people (Deu.7:6; 14:2), but the Israelites refused to believe it; but, in this Chapter, we have the record of the disaster when it fell. The iniquity of God's people had reached a point of no return; their day of grace was past; and Jerusalem was given over to the sword, the famine, and the pestilence, as so often stated by Jeremiah.
There are four Biblical accounts of the Fall of Jerusalem: (1). the account recorded in this chapter; (2). the story in Jeremiah 52; (3). the record in 2 Kings 25; (4). and the one in 2 Chronicles 36.
As can be expected, the accounts vary and differ in these accounts. Just as there are in the four Gospel accounts of the crucifixion of Christ Jesus; we learn that such variations prove to be accurate and historic when it comes to the total record. We should not concern ourselves with all the supposed inconsistencies found in accounts of this kind. It is the same when four eyewitness see a traffic accident, each will tell what they saw, and it is impossible to verify every little detail, so it is in these four accounts. We should accept the whole Truth about the fall of Jerusalem, as the combined gathering of all that is written in God’s Holy Word. All that is written in the Bible concerning the fall of Jerusalem is true, but we are not always able to understand, all these years later, just exactly how it all happened, nor is it really necessary for us to understand it. The length of the siege which was terminated in the record of this chapter lacked, only one day of being exactly eighteen months, lasting from January 588 B.C. to July 587 B.C.
The Capture of Jerusalem . . . The external evidence (that of the versions) is, however, in favor of their authenticity. Jeremiah 39:14 is to be reconciled with Jeremiah 40:1-4 by remembering that Gedaliah had left Jerusalem and gone to Mizpah (Jer. 40:6), a city in the close neighborhood; and as he was not at home to protect the prophet, nothing is more probable than that Jeremiah in company with the main body of captives was brought to Ramah in chains.
Just as the prophet Isaiah, after he had largely foretold the deliverance of Jerusalem out of the hands of the king of Assyria, gave a particular account of the story, that it might appear how exactly the event answered to the prediction, so too, the prophet Jeremiah, after he had mainly foretold the delivering of Jerusalem into the hands of the king of Babylon, gives a particular account of that sad event for the same reason. That sad story we have in this chapter, serves to disprove the false flattering prophets and to confirm the word of God's messengers. We are here told, (1). Jerusalem, after eighteen months' siege, was taken by the Chaldean army (vs. 1-3). (2). King Zedekiah, attempting to make his escape, was seized and made a miserable captive to the king of Babylon (vs. 4-7). (3). Jerusalem was burned to the ground, and the people were carried captive, all except the poor (vs. 8-10). (4). The Chaldeans were very kind to Jeremiah, and took particular care of him (vs. 11-14). (5). Ebedmelech, for his kindness, was protected by the LORD Himself in this day of desolation (vs. 15-18).
Jerusalem, After Eighteen Months' Siege,Was Taken by the Chaldean Army (Jer. 39:1-3)
Jer. 39:1 In the ninth year of Zedekiah king of Judah, in the tenth month, came Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon and all his army against Jerusalem, and they besieged it. (KJV)
In the ninth year of Zedekiah king of Judah, in the tenth month . . . the month Tebet, which would be part of our December, and part of January; so that it was in the winter that the siege of Jerusalem began.
Came Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon and all his army against Jerusalem, and they besieged it . . . Nebuchadrezzar was angered by Zedekiah's breaking the covenant with him, and rebelling against him, and who had set him upon his throne, in place of his nephew . . . so there was a mixture of disloyalty and ingratitude, which he was bound to get revenge; and being impatient, came at such an unseasonable time of the year for a long march and a siege. The king of Babylon came in person at first; but having begun the siege, and given proper orders to his generals for the carrying of it on, and supposing it would be a long one, went to Riblah in Syria, either for pleasure or for business. The time of beginning the siege agrees exactly with the account in 2 Kings 25:1; only there it is more particular, expressing the day of the month, which was the tenth of it; and so too in Jer. 52:4. The reason of placing the account of the siege and taking of the city, in this place, is to show both the exact accomplishment of Jeremiah's prophecies about it, and to lead on to some facts and predictions that followed it.
*****Ninth year... tenth month, and on the tenth day of it (Jer.52:4; 2 Ki.25:1-4).
Jer. 39:2 And in the eleventh year of Zedekiah, in the fourth month, the ninth day of the month, the city was broken up. (KJV)
And in the eleventh year of Zedekiah, in the fourth month . . . the month Tammuz, which answers to part of June, and part of July.
The ninth day of the month, the city was broken up . . . was taken by storm; the walls of it were broken by devices and battering rams, so that the Chaldeans could enter it, and take it. This was just a year and a half after it had been besieged, not being able to hold out any longer, because of the famine (Jer.52:6).
*****Eleventh year... fourth month... ninth day, we know the siege lasted one and a half years, except when it was suspended because of the army of Pharaoh coming. Nebuchadnezzar was present at the beginning of the siege, but was at Riblah at its close (Jer. 39:3, 6; compare Jer. 38:17).
Jer. 39:3 And all the princes of the king of Babylon came in, and sat in the middle gate, even Nergalsharezer, Samgarnebo, Sarsechim, Rabsaris, Nergalsharezer, Rabmag, with all the residue of the princes of the king of Babylon. (KJV)
And all the princes of the king of Babylon came in . . . into the city: a breach being made in the walls to take possession of it.
And sat in the middle gate . . . sat expresses military occupation or encampment. The middle gate was a gate of the Temple; the gate Nicanor, the eastern gate, which was between the gate of the court of the women and the gate of the Temple; their Rabbis say, the middle gate was the gate in which the wise men made their decrees and constitutions.
Even Nergalsharezer, Samgarnebo. . . proper names formed from those of the idols, Nergal and Nebo (2.Ki. 17:30; Isa. 46:1).
Sarsechim Rabsaris . . . these are not two names of different persons, but of the same person. The first is his proper name, which signifies the prince of the Scythians; the other his name of office, and signifies chief of the eunuchs.
Nergalsharezer Rabmag . . . these names belong to the same person, who is called from his office Rabmag, the chief of the magicians, to distinguish him from the other Nergalsharezer before mentioned: these,
With all the residue of the princes of the king of Babylon . . . entered the city and took it.
King Zedekiah, Attempting to Escape, Is Made aCaptive to the King of Babylon (Jer. 39:4-7)
Jer. 39:4 And it came to pass, that when Zedekiah the king of Judah saw them, and all the men of war, then they fled, and went forth out of the city by night, by the way of the king's garden, by the gate betwixt the two walls: and he went out the way of the plain. (KJV)
And it came to pass, that when Zedekiah the king of Judah saw them, and all the men of war . . . when Zedekiah and his soldiers saw the princes and generals of the Chaldean army enter the city through a break made in the wall, and take possession of the middle gate; which they might see from some high tower where they were for safety, and to make their observation of the enemy.
Then they fled . . . seeing they were not able to resist the enemy.
And went forth out of the city by night . . . it being the middle of the night, as before observed by Josephus, that the city was taken; and they took the advantage of the darkness of the night to make their escape: this they chose rather to do than to surrender to the Chaldeans, and lie at their mercy: and they went,
By the way of the king's garden, by the gate betwixt the two walls . . . the king's garden lay either between the wall of the city and the outworks; or between the old wall and the new one Hezekiah built (2 Chr.32:5); or others think between the wall of the city and the wall of the king's garden; this being a private way, they took it. Two walls . . . Zedekiah might have held the upper city longer, but lack of provisions drove him to flee by the double wall south of Zion, towards the plains of Jericho (verse 5), in order to escape beyond Jordan to Arabia-Deserta. He broke an opening in the wall to get out (Eze.12:12).
And he went out the way of the plain . . . on the south side of that which led to Jericho; and on which side the kings garden was; not that he went alone, but with his wives, his children, the princes and men of war with him (Jer.52:7).
Jer. 39:5 But the Chaldeans' army pursued after them, and overtook Zedekiah in the plains of Jericho: and when they had taken him, they brought him up to Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon to Riblah in the land of Hamath, where he gave judgment upon him. (KJV)
But the Chaldean army pursued after them . . . being informed of the flight of them, by those who surrendered to them, or not finding the king, his family, nobles and guards at the palace, where they expected them; and knowing which way they must take, chased after them; not the whole army, just a part of it; for some must remain at Jerusalem to demolish the city, and take the spoil of it.
And overtook Zedekiah in the plains of Jericho . . . not far from it, as Josephus says; and who also observes, that when his friends and generals saw the enemy near, they left him, and shifted for themselves, and only a few were with him when he was overtaken.
And when they had taken him they brought him to Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon to Riblah in the land of Hamath . . . this is generally thought to be Antioch in Syria; where he had retired from the siege of Jerusalem, having left it to his generals to refresh himself in this pleasant place, as it seems it was; or that he might be nearer his own kingdom, if any trouble would arise in it during his absence. It was in Riblah, where he was, and where the army brought Zedekiah to him, along with those they took with him; which must have pleased the king of Babylon to have this deceitful and ungrateful king in his hands.
Where he gave judgment upon him . . . it is where he passed sentence on him, severely rebuking him for the injury he had done him; and the disloyalty he had been guilty of in breaking his oath and covenant, which was to have his eyes put out.
*****Nebuchadnezzar called Zedekiah a wicked man and a covenant breaker, unmindful of promises he had made to preserve the country for him; he accused him of ingratitude, in receiving the kingdom from him he had taken from Jehoiakim, and given to him, who had used his power against the giver. He gave judgment upon him . . . literally, brought him to trial as a common criminal, not as a king, having violated his oath (Eze. 17:13-19; 2 Chr. 36:13).
Jer. 39:6 Then the king of Babylon slew the sons of Zedekiah in Riblah before his eyes: also the king of Babylon slew all the nobles of Judah. (KJV)
Then the king of Babylon slew the sons of Zedekiah in Riblah before his eyes . . . probably not with his own hands, but gave orders to do it: these sons must have been very young, at least some of them; since Zedekiah at this time was only thirty two years old. This must have been awful for him to see; bearing in mind that it was because of his own stubbornness in not taking the advice of Jeremiah to surrender to the Chaldeans, where IF he had surrendered, he and his family would have been saved (Jer.38:17).
Also the king of Babylon slew all the nobles of Judah . . . the ones that did not surrender to the Chaldean army, the same ones who advised the king to stand firm to the last, and who fled, and were taken with him; as many of them as fell into the hands of the king of Babylon. Some say that these were of the Sanhedrim, who supposedly loosed Zedekiah from his oath to Nebuchadnezzar.
Jer. 39:7 Moreover he put out Zedekiah's eyes, and bound him with chains, to carry him to Babylon. (KJV)
Moreover he put out Zedekiah's eyes . . . we are not told for certain by what means, but the prophecy of Jeremiah was fulfilled, that his eyes would see the king of Babylon, as they did, before they were put out, and that he would not die by the sword, (Jer.52:11; Eze.12:13); that he would be brought to Babylon, and yet he would not see it; for his eyes were put out before he was carried there: this is absolute evidence of the foresight of Almighty God (omniscience); of his foreknowledge of future and contingent events; of the absolute truth and certainty of prophecy, and of the authority of divine revelation.
And bound him with chains, to carry him to Babylon. . . with two brass or iron chains or fetters, for both his legs; and thus bound, he was carried to Babylon, where he remained to the day of his death.
*****He put out Zedekiah's eyes . . . one Jewish writer states that ancient kings liked to perform this act of cruelty, and some even did it with their own hands. The word in the Hebrew from which the verb comes in this place is from a root which means to dig out, indicating that the entire eyeball was popped out of the victim's skull. Another form of blinding was that of bringing a red hot iron to the surface of the eye. What made this especially pitiful to Zedekiah was the fact of his seeing the execution of his sons and the nobles of Judah as the very last events that he would ever be able to remember seeing. Jeremiah 52:11 states that Zedekiah remained a prisoner in Babylon until the day of his death, but it is not told when that death occurred.
Jerusalem Burnt to the Ground, the People Carried Captive, Except for the Poor (Jer. 39:8-10)
Jer. 39:8 And the Chaldeans burned the king's house, and the houses of the people, with fire, and brake down the walls of Jerusalem. (KJV)
And the Chaldeans burnt the king's house . . . his palace: this was a month after the city was taken, as seems from Jeremiah 52:12.
And the houses of the people, with fire . . . the houses of the common people, so different from the king's house, and the houses of the great men (Jer.52:13).
And broke down the walls of Jerusalem . . . they demolished all the fortifications of it, entirely dismantling it, that it would no more be a city of force and strength, as it had been.
*****Burned...the houses (Jer.52:12-14). Not immediately after the taking of the city, but in the month after, namely, the fifth month (verse 2). The delay was possibly caused by the princes having to send to Riblah to tell the king about the destruction of the city.
Jer. 39:9 Then Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard carried away captive into Babylon the remnant of the people that remained in the city, and those that fell away, that fell to him, with the rest of the people that remained. (KJV)
Then Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard . . . the Targum is, the captain of those that kill; captain of the guard of the soldiers of the militia. He was captain of the forces that were left in Jerusalem, after the other part went in pursuit of the king and those with him; the same captain of the guard,
Carried away into Babylon the remnant of the people that remained in the city . . . those that were left after the pestilence, famine and sword; and who were found in it when it was taken.
And those that fell away, that fell to him . . . those that fell to the Chaldean army during the siege of the city; and those that went to Nebuzaradan, and voluntarily surrendered themselves to him afterwards.
With the rest of the people that remained . . . in other cities in the land of Judah.
Jer. 39:10 But Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard left of the poor of the people, which had nothing, in the land of Judah, and gave them vineyards and fields at the same time. (KJV)
But Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard left of the poor of the people, which had nothing, in the land of Judah . . . because they would have been of no service to the Chaldeans, but only be a burden; and because they had nothing to fear from them. They had no arms to rebel against them, no money to buy any; and because it would be to their interest to have the land enriched, and not lie waste, that they might have some gain from it.
And gave them vineyards and fields at the same time . . . as their own property to work and cultivate, and receive the advantage of them; although most likely a tax was placed on them; or they were to pay homage to the king of Babylon; by contributing to the support of the government that was placed over them. This was a happy event in their favor; for there was a strange change of situations with them; although the nation in general was in distress, they who before had nothing, now are owners of vineyards and fields, when the former owners were carried captive. It seems to be that the gracious justice of God is very clear in this matter; because those who had been oppressed and heartlessly used by the rich, now have their possessions.
Chaldeans Were Kind to Jeremiah, and
Took Special Care of Him (Jer. 39:11-14)
Jer. 39:11 Now Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon gave charge concerning Jeremiah to Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard, saying, (KJV)
Now Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon gave charge concerning Jeremiah to Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard . . . of whom he had heard, maybe by one of his generals or officers; who had been informed by those Jews that deserted to them, that Jeremiah had prophesied of the taking of the city by the Chaldeans; had advised the people to surrender to them; and had even urged the king and princes to surrender the city and themselves, to them. The prophet had suffered much because of this; so the LORD put it into the heart of King Nebuchadnezzer, to show honor and respect to Jeremiah; and for that reason, when he sent Nebuzaradan upon an mission to Jerusalem, he gave him a particular charge concerning Jeremiah.:
Saying . . . as follows:
Jer. 39:12 Take him, and look well to him, and do him no harm; but do unto him even as he shall say unto thee. (KJV)
Take him, and look well to him . . . take him out of prison; take him under your care; receive him kindly, and treat him with compassion; provide everything necessary for him, that he not lack anything. Do not treat him not with neglect and contempt, but see to it that nothing is lacking for him.
And do him no harm . . . do not injure nor beat him, do not imprison nor starve him; do not allow any cruel thing be done to him by the common soldiers, or by his own people.
But do unto him even as he shall say unto thee . . . let him have whatever he asks for: this was indeed a great favor from a heathen prince indeed, much more than he received from his own people.
Jer. 39:13 So Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard sent, and Nebushasban, Rabsaris, and Nergalsharezer, Rabmag, and all the king of Babylon's princes; (KJV)
So Nebuzaradan captain of the guard sent . . . when he came to Jerusalem, one of the first things he did send a messenger or messengers to the court of the prison where Jeremiah was, to bring him from there; and this he did not do alone, but with the rest of the princes, who had the same order, and were joined in the commission with him: two of them are mentioned by name,
Nebushasban Rabsaris and Nergalsharezer Rabmag . . . Nergalsharezer Rabmag is clearly one of the princes that first entered Jerusalem, at the taking of it (verse 3); and maybe the other one as well.
And all the king of Babylon's princes . . . so that great honor was done to the prophet, to have them all charged with his commission from the king; and to be sent for by them all.
Jer. 39:14 Even they sent, and took Jeremiah out of the court of the prison, and committed him unto Gedaliah the son of Ahikam the son of Shaphan, that he should carry him home: so he dwelt among the people. (KJV)
Even they sent and took Jeremiah out of the court of the prison . . . where he was, when Jerusalem was taken (Jer.38:28); and where he remained until this order came.
And committed him unto Gedaliah the son of Ahikam the son of Shaphan . . . the father of this person seems to be the same who saved Jeremiah from being delivered into the hand of the people, to be put to death by them, in Jehoiakim's reign (Jer.26:24); and he himself was no doubt a prince of Judah, that deserted to the Chaldeans during the siege, and was appointed a governor over those that were left in the land.
That he should carry him home . . . either to the house of Gedaliah, or to the house of Jeremiah in Anathoth.
So he dwelt among the people . . . people that were left in the land, being at full liberty.
*****What is recorded here was not done immediately after Jeremiah was taken out of the court of the prison; for however it was, whether through the array of business, or the neglect of inferior officers, who did not attend to the charge the captain of the guard gave them concerning Jeremiah. Although he was taken out of prison, he was bound in chains, and carried among the captives to Ramah; where, very probably, Nebuzaradan, looking over his prisoners, to his great surprise finds the prophet among them. After talking with Jeremiah, Nebuzaradan released him, and sent him to Gedaliah. Jer. 40:1-4 The word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD, after that Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard had let him go from Ramah, when he had taken him being bound in chains among all that were carried away captive of Jerusalem and Judah, which were carried away captive unto Babylon. 2 And the captain of the guard took Jeremiah, and said unto him, The LORD thy God hath pronounced this evil upon this place. 3 Now the LORD hath brought it, and done according as he hath said: because ye have sinned against the LORD, and have not obeyed his voice, therefore this thing is come upon you. 4 And now, behold, I loose thee this day from the chains which were upon thine hand. If it seem good unto thee to come with me into Babylon, come; and I will look well unto thee: but if it seem ill unto thee to come with me into Babylon, forbear: behold, all the land is before thee: whither it seemeth good and convenient for thee to go, thither go. (KJV)
Ebedmelech, for His Kindness, was Protected by God Himself in This Day of Desolation (Jer. 39:15-18)
Jer. 39:15 Now the word of the LORD came unto Jeremiah, while he was shut up in the court of the prison, saying, (KJV)
Now the word of the LORD came unto Jeremiah, while he was shut up in the court of the prison . . . this prophecy was before the taking of the city, and after the prophet had been taken out of the dungeon by Ebedmelech; even though it is here inserted AFTER the city was taken; and that being to show the great regard the LORD has to such who show favor to His prophets; for although we have no account of the success of this prophecy, there is no doubt it did happen; and that Ebedmelech was saved from the general destruction, as is here predicted:
Saying . . . as follows:
Jer. 39:16 Go and speak to Ebedmelech the Ethiopian, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will bring my words upon this city for evil, and not for good; and they shall be accomplished in that day before thee. (KJV)
Go and speak to Ebedmelech the Ethiopian . . . not that the prophet was to go, nor could go out of prison, to deliver this message to Ebedmelech; but that he should, when he had a chance, tell him about it; either by writing to him, or by word of mouth, when he would visit him; for no doubt he sometimes did, having so great a respect he had for the prophet.
Saying, thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel . . . whom Ebedmelech, though an Ethiopian, served; being a proselyte (converted Jew), and a good man; and therefore would listen to and believe what came from him.
Behold, I will bring my words upon this city for evil, and not for good. . .meaning the prophecies delivered by Jeremiah, which Ebedmelech was no stranger to, these would be accomplished; NOT what promised good, on condition of repentance and amendment, but what was threatened to the city, and the inhabitants of it, that being the destruction of them.
And they shall be accomplished in that day before thee . . . indicating that he would live until then, and his enemies would not be able to kill him; and that he would see with his own eyes all that was predicted by Jeremiah, accomplished, and that he himself would be safe in the middle of all this.
Jer. 39:17 But I will deliver thee in that day, saith the LORD: and thou shalt not be given into the hand of the men of whom thou art afraid. (KJV)
But I will deliver thee in that day, saith the LORD . . . from the famine and pestilence, and from the sword of the Chaldeans, and from all the evil that shall come upon the city in the day of its destruction.
And thou shalt not be given into the hand of the man of whom thou art afraid . . . for although Ebedmelech was a bold and courageous man, as appears by his charging the princes and prime ministers of state with having done evil to the prophet, and that in the presence of the king; yet there were times he was not without his fears, which is surely the case of the best of men. He knew his enemies were out to get him, for the boldness he took with them before the king, and for his friendship to Jeremiah. He might fear they would destroy him, in some way or another; but here he is promised that he would not be given into their hands, or rather into the hands of the Chaldeans; for, as he believed in the LORD and His prophet, Jeremiah . . . so Ebedmelech knew that all that was predicted would certainly come to pass; and that the city, along with the king, his nobles, and all the inhabitants of it, would fall into the hands of the Chaldeans. As a rule he might tremble at the righteous judgments of God, and fear that he himself would be a prey to them; but here he is assured of the opposite.
*****The men of whom thou art afraid (Jer.38:1, 4-6). The courtiers and princes that were hostile to Ebedmelech for having delivered Jeremiah, would have no power to hurt him. Before he was bold and fearless, he was now afraid; so this prophecy was indeed very welcome to him.
Jer. 39:18 For I will surely deliver thee, and thou shalt not fall by the sword, but thy life shall be for a prey unto thee: because thou hast put thy trust in me, saith the LORD. (KJV)
For I will surely deliver thee . . . this is simply a repetition and confirmation of what is promised in verse 17, yet more fully explained.
And thou shall not fall by the sword . . . Ebedmelech would not fall by the sword of the Chaldeans, when the city would be taken, as he feared he should.
But thy life shall be for a prey unto thee . . . he would be safe; like a prey taken away from a hungry lion,
Because thou hast put thy trust in me, saith the LORD . . . this shows how the LORD rewards those who put their faith and trust in Him. He graciously repays for showing kindness to His prophets, as did this Ethiopian (Jer.38:13).
*****This is a gracious message to Ebedmelech, to assure him of a reward for his kindness to Jeremiah. This message was sent to him by Jeremiah himself, who when he returned thanks to the LORD for his kindness to him, he turned Ebedmelech over to Almighty God to be his Paymaster. This message was delivered to him right after he had done that kindness to Jeremiah, but it is mentioned here after the taking of the city, to show that, as God was kind to Jeremiah at that time, so he was to Ebedmelech for his sake. Jeremiah is directed to tell Ebedmelech,
(1). The LORD would surely bring upon Jerusalem the ruin that had been long and often threatened; and, because of his having been kind to Jeremiah, he would see him richly proven to be a true prophet (Jer.39:16).
(2). The LORD knew of the fear he had of the judgments coming. Although he was brave and bold in the service of God, yet he was afraid of the rod of God. The enemies were men of whom Ebedmelech was afraid, but God in His wisdom knows how to adapt and place His comforts to the fears and griefs of His people, for He knows their souls in hardship.
(3). Ebedmelech shall be delivered from having the common disaster: for the LORD will deliver him. He had eagerly delivered God's prophet out of the dungeon, and now God promises to deliver him. Ebedmelech had saved Jeremiah's life, that was precious to him, and therefore thy life shall be for a prey unto thee.
(4). The motive for this individual and unique favor which God had in store for Ebedmelech, is because he had put his trust in the LORD. When God repays men's services, He keeps His Eye on the reason that they go intot hose services, and rewards according to those reasons. There is no code of obedience that will be more acceptable to God, than a trusting confidence in Almighty God. Ebedmelech trusted that the LORD would be with him, and stand by him, and he was not afraid of man would do to him. All those who trust God, as this good man did, in the way of duty, will find that their faith would not make them ashamed in times of even the greatest danger.
