2 Chronicles 36:5-21

Jehoiakim
<03079>
[was] twenty
<06242>
and five
<02568>
years
<08141>
old
<01121>
when he began to reign
<04427> (8800)_,
and he reigned
<04427> (8804)
eleven
<0259> <06240>
years
<08141>
in Jerusalem
<03389>_:
and he did
<06213> (8799)
[that which was] evil
<07451>
in the sight
<05869>
of the LORD
<03068>
his God
<0430>_.
Against him came up
<05927> (8804)
Nebuchadnezzar
<05019>
king
<04428>
of Babylon
<0894>_,
and bound
<0631> (8799)
him in fetters
<05178>_,
to carry
<03212> (8687)
him to Babylon
<0894>_.
{fetters: or, chains}
Nebuchadnezzar
<05019>
also carried
<0935> (8689)
of the vessels
<03627>
of the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>
to Babylon
<0894>_,
and put
<05414> (8799)
them in his temple
<01964>
at Babylon
<0894>_.
Now the rest
<03499>
of the acts
<01697>
of Jehoiakim
<03079>_,
and his abominations
<08441>
which he did
<06213> (8804)_,
and that which was found
<04672> (8737)
in him, behold, they [are] written
<03789> (8803)
in the book
<05612>
of the kings
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>
and Judah
<03063>_:
and Jehoiachin
<03078>
his son
<01121>
reigned
<04427> (8799)
in his stead. {Jehoiachin: also called, Jeconiah, or, Coniah}
Jehoiachin
<03078>
[was] eight
<08083>
years
<08141>
old
<01121>
when he began to reign
<04427> (8800)_,
and he reigned
<04427> (8804)
three
<07969>
months
<02320>
and ten
<06235>
days
<03117>
in Jerusalem
<03389>_:
and he did
<06213> (8799)
[that which was] evil
<07451>
in the sight
<05869>
of the LORD
<03068>_.
And when the year
<08141>
was expired
<08666>_,
king
<04428>
Nebuchadnezzar
<05019>
sent
<07971> (8804)_,
and brought
<0935> (8686)
him to Babylon
<0894>_,
with the goodly
<02532>
vessels
<03627>
of the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
and made Zedekiah
<06667>
his brother
<0251>
king
<04427> (8686)
over Judah
<03063>
and Jerusalem
<03389>_.
{when...: Heb. at the return of the year} {goodly...: Heb. vessels of desire} {Zedekiah...: or, Mattaniah, his father's brother}
Zedekiah
<06667>
[was] one
<0259>
and twenty
<06242>
years
<08141>
old
<01121>
when he began to reign
<04427> (8800)_,
and reigned
<04427> (8804)
eleven
<0259> <06240>
years
<08141>
in Jerusalem
<03389>_.
And he did
<06213> (8799)
[that which was] evil
<07451>
in the sight
<05869>
of the LORD
<03068>
his God
<0430>_,
[and] humbled
<03665> (8738)
not himself before
<06440>
Jeremiah
<03414>
the prophet
<05030>
[speaking] from the mouth
<06310>
of the LORD
<03068>_.
And he also rebelled
<04775> (8804)
against king
<04428>
Nebuchadnezzar
<05019>_,
who had made him swear
<07650> (8689)
by God
<0430>_:
but he stiffened
<07185> (8686)
his neck
<06203>_,
and hardened
<0553> (8762)
his heart
<03824>
from turning
<07725> (8800)
unto the LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>_.
Moreover all the chief
<08269>
of the priests
<03548>_,
and the people
<05971>_,
transgressed
<04603> (8800)
very
<04604>
much
<07235> (8689)
after all the abominations
<08441>
of the heathen
<01471>_;
and polluted
<02930> (8762)
the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>
which he had hallowed
<06942> (8689)
in Jerusalem
<03389>_.
And the LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>
of their fathers
<01>
sent
<07971> (8799)
to them by
<03027>
his messengers
<04397>_,
rising up betimes
<07925> (8687)_,
and sending
<07971> (8800)_;
because he had compassion
<02550> (8804)
on his people
<05971>_,
and on his dwelling place
<04583>_:
{by: Heb. by the hand of} {betimes: that is, continually and carefully}
But they mocked
<03931> (8688)
the messengers
<04397>
of God
<0430>_,
and despised
<0959> (8802)
his words
<01697>_,
and misused
<08591> (8700)
his prophets
<05030>_,
until the wrath
<02534>
of the LORD
<03068>
arose
<05927> (8800)
against his people
<05971>_,
till [there was] no remedy
<04832>_.
{remedy: Heb. healing}
Therefore he brought
<05927> (8686)
upon them the king
<04428>
of the Chaldees
<03778>_,
who slew
<02026> (8799)
their young men
<0970>
with the sword
<02719>
in the house
<01004>
of their sanctuary
<04720>_,
and had no compassion
<02550> (8804)
upon young man
<0970>
or maiden
<01330>_,
old man
<02205>_,
or him that stooped for age
<03486>_:
he gave
<05414> (8804)
[them] all into his hand
<03027>_.
And all the vessels
<03627>
of the house
<01004>
of God
<0430>_,
great
<01419>
and small
<06996>_,
and the treasures
<0214>
of the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
and the treasures
<0214>
of the king
<04428>_,
and of his princes
<08269>_;
all [these] he brought
<0935> (8689)
to Babylon
<0894>_.
And they burnt
<08313> (8799)
the house
<01004>
of God
<0430>_,
and brake down
<05422> (8762)
the wall
<02346>
of Jerusalem
<03389>_,
and burnt
<08313> (8804)
all the palaces
<0759>
thereof with fire
<0784>_,
and destroyed
<07843> (8687)
all the goodly
<04261>
vessels
<03627>
thereof.
And them that had escaped
<07611>
from the sword
<02719>
carried he away
<01540> (8686)
to Babylon
<0894>_;
where they were servants
<05650>
to him and his sons
<01121>
until the reign
<04427> (8800)
of the kingdom
<04438>
of Persia
<06539>_:
{them...: Heb. the remainder from the sword}
To fulfil
<04390> (8763)
the word
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>
by the mouth
<06310>
of Jeremiah
<03414>_,
until the land
<0776>
had enjoyed
<07521> (8804)
her sabbaths
<07676>_:
[for] as long as
<03117>
she lay desolate
<08074> (8715)
she kept sabbath
<07673> (8804)_,
to fulfil
<04390> (8763)
threescore and ten
<07657>
years
<08141>_.
