Second Chronicles 36


36:1 Then the people of the land took Jehoahaz the son of
 Josiah, and made him king in his father's stead in Jerusalem.
36:2 Jehoahaz [was] twenty and three years old when he began to
 reign, and he reigned three months in Jerusalem.
36:3 And the king of Egypt deposed him at Jerusalem, and
 condemned the land in a hundred talents of silver, and a talent
 of gold.
36:4 And the king of Egypt made Eliakim his brother king over
 Judah and Jerusalem, and changed his name to Jehoiakim. And
 Necho took Jehoahaz his brother, and carried him to Egypt.
36:5 Jehoiakim [was] twenty and five years old when he began to
 reign, and he reigned eleven years in Jerusalem: and he did
 [that which was] evil in the sight of the LORD his God.
36:6 Against him came up Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, and
 bound him in fetters, to carry him to Babylon.
36:7 Nebuchadnezzar also carried of the vessels of the house of
 the LORD to Babylon, and put them in his temple at Babylon.
36:8 Now the rest of the acts of Jehoiakim, and his abominations
 which he did, and that which was found in him, behold, they
 [are] written in the book of the kings of Israel and Judah. And
 Jehoiachin his son reigned in his stead.
36:9 Jehoiachin [was] eight years old when he began to reign,
 and he reigned three months and ten days in Jerusalem: and he
 did [that which was] evil in the sight of the LORD.
36:10 And when the year had expired, king Nebuchadnezzar sent,
 and brought him to Babylon, with the goodly vessels of the
 house of the LORD, and made Zedekiah his brother king over
 Judah and Jerusalem.
36:11 Zedekiah [was] one and twenty years old when he began to
 reign, and reigned eleven years in Jerusalem.
36:12 And he did [that which was] evil in the sight of the LORD
 his God, [and] humbled not himself before Jeremiah the prophet
 [speaking] from the mouth of the LORD.
36:13 And he also rebelled against king Nebuchadnezzar, who had
 made him swear by God: but he stiffened his neck, and hardened
 his heart from turning to the LORD God of Israel.
36:14 Moreover, all the chief of the priests, and the people,
 transgressed very much after all the abominations of the
 heathen; and polluted the house of the LORD which he had
 hallowed in Jerusalem.
36:15 And the LORD God of their fathers sent to them by his
 messengers, rising up betimes, and sending; because he had
 compassion on his people, and on his dwelling-place:
36:16 But they mocked the messengers of God, and despised his
 words, and misused his prophets, until the wrath of the LORD
 arose against his people, till [there was] no remedy.
36:17 Therefore he brought upon them the king of the Chaldees,
 who slew their young men with the sword in the house of their
 sanctuary, and had no compassion upon young man or maiden, old
 man, or him that stooped for age: he gave [them] all into his
 hand.
36:18 And all the vessels of the house of God, great and small,
 and the treasures of the house of the LORD, and the treasures
 of the king, and of his princes; all [these] he brought to
 Babylon.
36:19 And they burnt the house of God, and broke down the wall
 of Jerusalem, and burnt all its palaces with fire, and
 destroyed all its goodly vessels.
36:20 And them that had escaped from the sword he carried away
 to Babylon; where they were servants to him and his sons until
 the reign of the kingdom of Persia.
36:21 To fulfill the word of the LORD by the mouth of Jeremiah,
 until the land had enjoyed her sabbaths: [for] as long as she
 lay desolate she kept sabbath, to fulfill seventy years.
36:22 Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the
 word of the LORD [spoken] by the mouth of Jeremiah might be
 accomplished, the LORD stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of
 Persia, that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom,
 and [put it] also in writing, saying,
36:23 Thus saith Cyrus king of Persia, All the kingdoms of the
 earth hath the LORD God of heaven given me; and he hath charged
 me to build him a house in Jerusalem, which [is] in Judah. Who
 [is there] among you of all his people? The LORD his God [be]
 with him, and let him go up.
