1 OR avvenne nel settimo mese, che Ismaele, figliuolo di Netania, figliuolo di Elisama, del sangue reale, ed alcuni grandi della corte del re, e dieci uomini con lui, vennero a Ghedalia, figliuolo di Ahicam, in Mispa; e quivi in Mispa mangiarono insieme.

2 Poi Ismaele, figliuolo di Netania, si levò, insieme co’ dieci uomini ch’erano con lui, e percossero colla spada Ghedalia, figliuolo di Ahicam, figliuolo di Safan. Così lo fece morire; lui, che il re di Babilonia aveva costituito sopra il paese.

3 Ismaele uccise ancora gli uomini di guerra, d’infra tutti i Giudei, ch’erano con Ghedalia in Mispa, e i Caldei che si ritrovarono quivi.

4 E il giorno appresso ch’egli ebbe ucciso Ghedalia, avanti che se ne sapesse nulla,

5 avvenne, che alcuni uomini di Sichem, di Silo, e di Samaria, in numero di ottanta uomini, venivano, avendo le barbe rase, ed i vestimenti stracciati, e delle tagliature sul corpo; ed aveano in mano offerte, ed incenso, da presentar nella Casa del Signore.

6 Ed Ismaele, figliuolo di Netania, uscì di Mispa incontro a loro, e camminava piangendo; e quando li ebbe scontrati, disse loro: Venite a Ghedalia, figliuolo di Ahicam.

7 Ma quando furono entrati in mezzo della città, Ismaele, figliuolo di Netania, accompagnato dagli uomini, ch’egli aveva seco, li scannò, e li gettò in mezzo della fossa.

8 Or fra quelli si trovarono dieci uomini, che dissero ad Ismaele: Non ucciderci; perciocchè noi abbiamo in sulla campagna delle segrete conserve di grano, e d’orzo, e d’olio, e di miele. Ed egli si ritenne, e non li uccise fra i lor fratelli.

9 Or la fossa, nella quale Ismaele gettò tutti i corpi morti degli uomini, ch’egli uccise del seguito di Ghedalia, era quella che il re Asa aveva fatta per tema di Baasa, re d’Israele; Ismaele, figliuolo di Netania, la riempiè di uccisi.

10 Poi appresso Ismaele ne menò via prigione tutto il rimanente del popolo, ch’era in Mispa: le figliuole del re, e tutto il popolo restato in Mispa, il quale Nebuzaradan, capitan delle guardie, aveva dato in governo a Ghedalia, figliuolo di Ahicam; Ismaele, figliuolo di Netania, li menava via prigioni, e se ne andava per passare a’ figliuoli di Ammon.

11 Ma Giohanan, figliuolo di Carea, e tutti i capi della gente di guerra, ch’erano con lui, avendo udito tutto il male, che Ismaele, figliuolo di Netania, aveva fatto,

12 presero tutta la lor gente, e andarono per combattere contro ad Ismaele, figliuolo di Netania; e lo trovarono presso alle grandi acque, che sono in Gabaon.

13 E quando tutto il popolo che era con Ismaele vide Giohanan, figliuolo di Carea, e tutti i capi della gente di guerra, che erano con lui, si rallegrò.

14 E tutto il popolo, che Ismaele menava prigione da Mispa, si rivoltò, e se ne ritornò a Giohanan, figliuolo di Carea.

15 Ma Ismaele, figliuolo di Netania, scampò con otto uomini, d’innanzi a Giohanan, e se ne andò a’ figliuoli di Ammon.

16 Poi Giohanan, figliuolo di Carea, e tutti i capitani della gente di guerra, ch’erano con lui, presero tutto il rimanente del popolo, che avevano riscosso da Ismaele, figliuolo di Netania, e il quale egli ne menava via da Mispa, dopo aver percosso Ghedalia, figliuolo di Ahicam: uomini, gente di guerra, e donne, e fanciulli, ed eunuchi; e li ricondussero da Gabaon.

17 Ed andarono, e dimorarono in Gherut-Chimham, che è vicin di Bet-lehem, con intenzione di andarsene, e di entrare in Egitto, d’innanzi a’ Caldei;

18 conciossiachè temessero di loro; perciocchè Ismaele, figliuolo di Netania, aveva percosso Ghedalia, figliuolo di Ahicam, il quale il re di Babilonia aveva costituito sopra il paese.
