2 Kings 24:1-2

Context

24:1 During Jehoiakim’s reign, 1  King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon attacked. 2  Jehoiakim was his subject for three years, but then he rebelled against him. 3  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. 4 

1 tn Heb “In his days.”

2 tn Heb “came up.” Perhaps an object (“against him”) has been accidentally omitted from the text. See M. Cogan and H. Tadmor, II Kings (AB), 306.

3 tn The Hebrew text has “and he turned and rebelled against him.”

4 tn Heb “he sent them against Judah to destroy it, according to the word of the Lord which he spoke by the hand of his servants the prophets.”
