1 Sucedeu, porém, no mês sétimo, que veio Ismael, filho de Netanias, filho de Elisama, de sangue real, e um dos nobres do rei, e dez homens com ele, a Gedalias, filho de Aicão, a Mizpá; e eles comeram pão juntos ali em Mizpá.

2 E levantou-se Ismael, filho de Netanias, com os dez homens que estavam com ele, e feriram a Gedalias, filho de Aicão, filho de Safã, à espada, matando assim aquele que o rei de Babilônia havia posto por governador sobre a terra.

3 Matou também Ismael a todos os judeus que estavam com Gedalias, em Mizpá, como também aos soldados caldeus que se achavam ali.

4 Sucedeu pois no dia seguinte, depois que ele matara a Gedalias, sem ninguém o saber,

5 que vieram de Siquém, de Siló e de Samária, oitenta homens, com a barba rapada, e os vestidos rasgados e tendo as carnes retalhadas, trazendo nas mãos ofertas de cereais e incenso, para os levarem à casa do Senhor.

6 E, saindo-lhes ao encontro Ismael, filho de Netanias, desde Mizpá, ia chorando; e sucedeu que, encontrando-os, lhes disse: Vinde a Gedalias, filho de Aicão.

7 Chegando eles, porém, até o meio da cidade, Ismael, filho de Netanias, e os homens que estavam com ele mataram-nos e os lançaram num poço.

8 Mas entre eles se acharam dez homens que disseram a Ismael: Não nos mates a nós, porque temos escondidos no campo depósitos de trigo, cevada, azeite e mel. E ele por isso os deixou, e não os matou entre seus irmãos.

9 E o poço em que Ismael lançou todos os cadáveres dos homens que matara por causa de Gedalias é o mesmo que fez o rei Asa, por causa de Baasa, rei de Israel; foi esse mesmo que Ismael, filho de Netanias, encheu de mortos.

10 E Ismael levou cativo a todo o resto do povo que estava em Mizpá: as filhas do rei, e todo o povo que ficara em Mizpá, que Nebuzaradão, capitão da guarda, havia confiado a Gedalias, filho de Aicão; e levou-os cativos Ismael, filho de Netanias, e se foi para passar aos filhos de Amom.

11 Ouvindo, porém, Joanã, filho de Careá, e todos os chefes das forças que estavam com ele, todo o mal que havia feito Ismael, filho de Netanias,

12 tomaram todos os seus homens e foram pelejar contra Ismael, filho de Netanias; e o acharam ao pé das grandes águas que há em Gibeão.

13 E todo o povo que estava com Ismael se alegrou quando viu a Joanã, filho de Careá, e a todos os chefes das forças, que vinham com ele.

14 E todo o povo que Ismael levara cativo de Mizpá virou as costas, e voltou, e foi para Joanã, filho de Careá.

15 Mas Ismael, filho de Netanias, com oito homens, escapou de Joanã e se foi para os filhos de Amom.

16 Então Joanã, filho de Careá, e todos os chefes das forças que estavam com ele, tomaram a todo o resto do povo que Ismael, filho de Netanias, tinha levado cativo de Mizpá, depois que matara Gedalias, filho de Aicão, a saber, aos soldados, as mulheres, aos meninos e aos eunucos, que Joanã havia recobrado de Gibeão,

17 e partiram, indo habitar Gerute-Quimã, que está perto de Belém, para dali entrarem no Egito,

18 por causa dos caldeus; pois os temiam, por ter Ismael, filho de Netanias, matado a Gedalias, filho de Aicão, a quem o rei de Babilônia tinha posto por governador sobre a terra.
