(15) With eight men.—He had come with ten (Jeremiah 41:1), and it is a natural inference that two had perished in one or other of the conflicts of Jeremiah 41:2; Jeremiah 41:12.

41:11-18 The success of villany must be short, and none can prosper who harden their hearts against God. And those justly lose comfort in real fears, who excuse themselves in sin by pretended fears. The removal of a prudent and peaceable ruler, and the succession of another who is rash and ambitious, affects the welfare of many. Only those are happy and steady who fear the Lord and walk in his ways.An open pool still exists at Gibeon, and a large subterranean reservoir fed by a copious natural spring. Gibeon is about two miles north of Mizpah. 14. cast about—came round. When the people whom Ishmael had carried away prisoners saw Johanan coming with greater forces, they contrived and wheeled about and went to him, only Ishmael and eight men escaped and went to the land of Ammon.

Jeremiah 41:15When those who had been carried off by Ishmael saw these captains, they were glad, since they had followed their captor merely because they were forced to do so.
