Jeremiah 40:4-6 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
4 Now, I release you today from the chains upon your hands; if you want to come with me to Babylon, then come: I will look out for you. But if you do not want to come to Babylon, very well. See, the whole land lies before you; go wherever you think good and proper. 5 Or go to Gedaliah, son of Ahikam, son of Shaphan, whom the king of Babylon has set over the cities of Judah. Stay with him among the people. Or go wherever you want!” The captain of the bodyguard gave him food and gifts and let him go. 6 So Jeremiah went to Gedaliah, son of Ahikam, in Mizpah,[a] and dwelt with him among the people left in the land.
