Nebuzaradan: "the captain of the guard," in rank next to the king, who appears
prominent in directing affairs at the capture of Jerusalem
(2 Kings 25:8-20; Jeremiah 39:11; 40:2-5) He showed kindness toward Jeremiah,
as commanded by Nebuchadnezzar
(Jeremiah 40:1) Five years after this he
again came to Jerusalem and carried captive seven hundred and
forty-five more Jews.
