2 Chronicles 36:5-8

Context
Jehoiakim’s Reign

36:5 Jehoiakim was twenty-five years old when he became king, and he reigned for eleven years in Jerusalem. 1  He did evil in the sight of 2  the Lord his God. 36:6 King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon attacked him, 3  bound him with bronze chains, and carried him away 4  to Babylon. 36:7 Nebuchadnezzar took some of the items in the Lord’s temple to Babylon and put them in his palace 5  there. 6 

36:8 The rest of the events of Jehoiakim’s reign, including the horrible sins he committed and his shortcomings, are recorded in the Scroll of the Kings of Israel and Judah. 7  His son Jehoiachin replaced him as king.

2 tn Heb “in the eyes of.”

3 tn Heb “came up against him.”

4 tn Heb “to carry him away.”

5 tn Or “temple.”

6 tn Heb “in Babylon.” Repeating the proper name “Babylon” here would be redundant in contemporary English, so “there” has been used in the translation.

7 tn Heb “As for the rest of the events of Jehoiakim, and his horrible deeds which he did and that which was found against him, look, they are written on the scroll of the kings of Israel and Judah.”
