{Jeremiah 40:6} Then went 935 z8799 Jeremiah 3414 unto x413 Gedaliah 1436 the son 1121 of Ahikam 296 to Mizpah; 4708 and dwelt 3427 z8799 with x854 him among 8432 the people 5971 that were left 7604 z8737 in the land. 776
It has been doubted whether Jeremiah acted prudently in this decision, as the event seems to indicate the contrary, and as it was the evident meaning of all his predictions that the Jews should not prosper in their own country till the expiration of seventy years. But he was evidently influenced by the most unbounded love to his country, for whose welfare he had watched, prayed, and lived; and he now chose rather to share her adversities, her sorrows, her wants, her afflictions, and her disgrace, than to be the companion of princes, and to sit at the table of kings. His patriotism was as unbounded as it was sincere. He only ceased to live for country when he ceased to breathe. "Even they sent,ª° and tookª°¹ Jeremiahª out of the courtª¹ of the prison,ª and committedª° him unto¹ Gedaliahª the sonª of Ahikamª the sonª of Shaphan,ª that he should carryª° him home:ª so he dweltª° amongª the people.ª" {Jer 39:14}
"And Dilean,ª and Mizpeh,ª and Joktheel,ª" {Jsh 15:38} + "Then all¹ the childrenª of Israelª went out,ª° and the congregationª was gathered togetherª° as oneª man,ª from Danª¹ even to¹ Beersheba,ª with the landª of Gilead,ª unto¹ the LORDª in Mizpeh.ª" {Jdg 20:1} + "Now the menª of Israelª had swornª° in Mizpeh,ª saying,ª° There shall not¹ anyª of¹ us giveª° his daughterª unto Benjaminª to wife.ª" {Jdg 21:1} + "And Samuelª said,ª° Gatherª°¹ all¹ Israelª to Mizpeh,²¹ and I will prayª° for¹ you unto¹ the LORD.ª ... And they gathered togetherª° to Mizpeh,ª and drewª° water,ª and poured [it] outª° beforeª the LORD,ª and fastedª° on that¹ day,ª and saidª° there,¹ We have sinnedª° against the LORD.ª And Samuelª judgedª°¹ the childrenª of Israelª in Mizpeh.²¹" {1Sm 7:5-6}, Mizpeh
