52:12 On the tenth 2  day of the fifth month, 3  in the nineteenth year of King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon, Nebuzaradan, the captain of the royal guard 4  who served 5  the king of Babylon, arrived in Jerusalem. 52:13 He burned down the Lord’s temple, the royal palace, and all the houses in Jerusalem, including every large house. 52:14 The whole Babylonian army that came with the captain of the royal guard tore down the walls that surrounded Jerusalem. 52:15 Nebuzaradan, the captain of the royal guard, took into exile some of the poor, 6  the rest of the people who remained in the city, those who had deserted to him, and the rest of the craftsmen.

5 tn Heb “stood before.”

6 tn Heb “poor of the people.”
