2 Kings 23:36--24:7

Context
Jehoiakim’s Reign over Judah

23:36 Jehoiakim was twenty-five years old when he became king, and he reigned for eleven years in Jerusalem. 1  His mother was Zebidah the daughter of Pedaiah, from Rumah. 23:37 He did evil in the sight of 2  the Lord as his ancestors had done.

24:1 During Jehoiakim’s reign, 3  King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon attacked. 4  Jehoiakim was his subject for three years, but then he rebelled against him. 5  24:2 The Lord sent against him Babylonian, Syrian, Moabite, and Ammonite raiding bands; he sent them to destroy Judah, as he had warned he would do through his servants the prophets. 6  24:3 Just as the Lord had announced, he rejected Judah because of all the sins which Manasseh had committed. 7  24:4 Because he killed innocent people and stained Jerusalem with their blood, the Lord was unwilling to forgive them. 8 

24:5 The rest of the events of Jehoiakim’s reign and all his accomplishments, are recorded in the scroll called the Annals of the Kings of Judah. 9  24:6 He passed away 10  and his son Jehoiachin replaced him as king. 24:7 The king of Egypt did not march out from his land again, for the king of Babylon conquered all the territory that the king of Egypt had formerly controlled between the Brook of Egypt and the Euphrates River.
