(2) he is released from the dungeon, but restrained to the court of the prison;

(3) he is imprisoned in the miry dungeon and kept in prison court Jeremiah 38:1-6.

(4) he is again released from the dungeon and kept in the prison court Jeremiah 38:13-28 until the capture of the city;

(5) carried in chains from the city by Nebuzar-adan, captain of the guard, he is finally released at Ramah. Jeremiah 40:1-4.
