The Fall of Jerusalem

1 Zedekiah R2677 was twenty-one years old when he became king, and he reigned eleven years in Jerusalem; and his mother's name was Hamutal R2678 F639 the daughter of Jeremiah of Libnah. R2679 2 He did evil R2680 in the sight of the LORD like all that Jehoiakim R2681 had done. 3 For through the anger R2682 of the LORD this came about in Jerusalem and Judah until He cast them out from His presence. And Zedekiah rebelled R2683 against the king of Babylon. 4 Now R2684 it came about in the ninth year of his reign, on the tenth day of the tenth month, that Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came, he and all his army, against Jerusalem, camped against it and built a siege R2685 wall all around it. F640 5 So R2686 the city was under siege until the eleventh year of King Zedekiah. 6 On the ninth day of the fourth R2687 month the famine R2688 was so severe in the city that there was no food for the people of the land. 7 Then the city was broken R2689 into, and all the men R2690 of war fled and went forth from the city at night by way of the gate between the two walls which was by the king's garden, though the Chaldeans were all R2691 F641 around the city. And they went by way of the Arabah. 8 But the army of the Chaldeans pursued the king and overtook R2692 Zedekiah in the plains F642 of Jericho, and all his army was scattered from him. 9 Then they captured the king and brought R2693 him up to the king of Babylon at Riblah R2694 in the land of Hamath, R2695 and he passed F643 sentence on him. 10 The king of Babylon slaughtered R2696 the sons of Zedekiah before his eyes, and he also slaughtered all the princes F644 of Judah in Riblah. 11 Then he blinded R2697 the eyes of Zedekiah; and the king of Babylon bound him with bronze fetters and brought him to Babylon and put him in prison until the day of his death.

12 Now R2698 on the tenth day of the fifth month, which was the nineteenth R2699 year of King Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, Nebuzaradan R2700 the captain of the bodyguard, who F645 was in the service of the king of Babylon, came to Jerusalem. 13 He burned R2701 the house of the LORD, the king's R2702 house and all the houses of Jerusalem; even every large house he burned with fire. 14 So all the army of the Chaldeans who were with the captain of the guard broke R2703 down all the walls around Jerusalem. 15 Then Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard carried R2704 away into exile some of the poorest of the people, the rest of the people who were left in the city, the deserters R2705 F646 who had deserted to the king of Babylon and the rest of the artisans. 16 But Nebuzaradan R2706 the captain of the guard left some of the poorest of the land to be vinedressers and plowmen. F647

17 Now the bronze pillars R2707 which belonged to the house of the LORD and the stands R2708 and the bronze sea, R2709 which were in the house of the LORD, the Chaldeans broke in pieces and carried all their bronze to Babylon. 18 They also took away the pots, R2710 the shovels, the snuffers, the basins, the pans F648 and all the bronze vessels which were used in temple service. 19 The captain of the guard also took away the bowls, R2711 the firepans, the basins, the pots, the lampstands, the pans F649 and the drink offering bowls, what was fine gold and what was fine silver. 20 The two pillars, the one sea, and the twelve bronze bulls that were under the F650 sea, and the stands, which King Solomon had made for the house of the LORD--the bronze of all these vessels was beyond R2712 weight. 21 As for the pillars, the height R2713 of each pillar was eighteen cubits, F651 and it F652 was twelve cubits in circumference R2713 and four fingers in thickness, and hollow. 22 Now a capital R2714 of bronze was on it; and the height of each capital was five cubits, with network and pomegranates R2715 upon the capital all around, all of bronze. And the second pillar was like these, including pomegranates. 23 There were ninety-six exposed F653 pomegranates; all the R2716 pomegranates numbered a hundred on the network all around.

24 Then the captain of the guard took Seraiah R2717 the chief priest and Zephaniah R2718 the second priest, with the three officers R2719 F654 of the temple. 25 He also took from the city one official who was overseer of the men of war, and seven of F655 the king's R2720 advisers who were found in the city, and the scribe of the commander of the army who mustered the people of the land, and sixty men of the people of the land who were found in the midst of the city. 26 Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard took them and brought R2721 them to the king of Babylon at Riblah. 27 Then the king of Babylon struck R2722 them down and put them to death at Riblah in the land of Hamath. So Judah was led R2723 away into exile from its land.

28 These are the people whom Nebuchadnezzar R2724 carried away into exile: in the seventh F656 year 3,023 Jews; 29 in the eighteenth year of Nebuchadnezzar 832 persons from Jerusalem; 30 in the twenty-third year of Nebuchadnezzar, Nebuzaradan R2725 the captain of the guard carried into exile 745 Jewish people; there were 4,600 persons in all.

31 Now R2726 it came about in the thirty-seventh year of the exile of Jehoiachin king of Judah, in the twelfth month, on the twenty-fifth of the month, that Evil-merodach F657 king of Babylon, in the first year of his reign, showed R2727 F658 favor to Jehoiachin king of Judah and brought him out of prison. 32 Then R2728 he spoke kindly to him and set his throne above the thrones of the kings who were with him in Babylon. 33 So Jehoiachin F659 changed R2729 his prison clothes, and had R2730 F660 his meals in the F661 king's presence regularly all the days of his life. 34 For his allowance, a regular R2731 allowance was given him by the king of Babylon, a daily portion all the days of his life until the day of his death.
