I Will Deliver You Because You Put Your Trust in Me
39:1 In the ninth year (588 B.C.) of Zedekiah king of Judah (597-586 B.C.), in the tenth month (Tebeth -- December), came Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon and all his army against Jerusalem, and they besieged it.
2 And in the eleventh year of Zedekiah, in the fourth month (Tammuz -- June), the ninth day of the month, the city was broken up (586 B.C.).
3 And all the princes (Gemini) 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 (Gemini) princes of the king of Babylon.
4 And it came to pass, that when Zedekiah the king (Cepheus) of Judah (red radius line) saw them, and all the (Gemini) 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 (lunar) gate betwixt the two (Milky Way) walls: and he (red radius line) went out the way of the plain.
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 (Cepheus) king of Babylon to Riblah in the land of Hamath, where he gave judgment upon him.
6 Then the king of Babylon (red radius sword) slew the (Gemini) sons of Zedekiah in Riblah before his (solar and lunar) eyes: also the king of Babylon (red radius sword) slew all the (Gemini) nobles of Judah.
7 Moreover he (red hot radius iron) put out Zedekiah's (Auriga's) (solar and lunar) eyes, and bound him with (red radius line) chains, to carry him to Babylon.
8 And the Chaldeans (solar) burned the king's (red radius line) house, and the (red radius line) houses of the (Gemini) people, with (solar) fire, and brake down the (white Milky Way) walls of Jerusalem (using red radius line pry bars to loosen the lunar stones).
9 Then Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard carried away captive into Babylon the (Gemini) remnant of the people that remained in the city, and those that fell away, that fell to him, with the rest of the (Gemini) people that remained.
10 But Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard left of the (Gemini) poor of the people, which had nothing, in the land of Judah, and gave them (green Milky Way) vineyards and (red radius line) fields at the same time.
11 Now Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon (Cepheus) gave charge concerning Jeremiah (Auriga) to Nebuzaradan (Orion) the captain of the guard, saying,
12 Take him, and look well to him, and do him (Auriga) no harm; but do unto him even as he shall say unto thee.
13 So Nebuzaradan (Orion) the captain of the guard (red radius line) sent, and Nebushasban, Rabsaris, and Nergalsharezer, Rabmag, and all the king of Babylon's (Gemini) princes;
14 Even they sent, and took Jeremiah (Orion) out of the court of the (red radius barred) prison, and committed him unto Gedaliah the son of Ahikam the son of Shaphan, that he (Orion) should carry him (Auriga) home: so he dwelt among the (Gemini) people.
15 Now the (red radius line) word of the Lord came unto (Orion) Jeremiah, while he was shut up in the court of the (red radius barred) prison, saying,
16 Go and speak to Ebedmelech the Ethiopian (Orion), 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.
17 But I will deliver thee (Orion) in that day, saith the Lord: and thou shalt not be given into the hand of the (Gemini) men of whom thou art afraid.
18 For I will surely deliver thee, and thou shalt not fall by the (red radius line) sword, but thy life shall be for a prey unto thee: because thou hast put thy trust in me, saith the Lord.
