Gedaliah

Jeremiah 40:5

40:5 Gedaliah. This new Babylonian-designated governor of Judah had been placed in charge of Jeremiah when the Babylonians captured the city (Jeremiah 39:14). His father Ahikam had been a faithful servant of King Josiah (II Kings 22:10-14), and had supported Jeremiah in his conflicts with Judah’s subsequent kings (Jeremiah 26:24). Probably because of this background, Nebuchadnezzar had confidence in Gedaliah and appointed him governor over Judah. Jeremiah chose to stay with Gedaliah rather than go to Babylon or anywhere else.
