Second Kings 24


24:1 In his days Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came up, and
 Jehoiakim became his servant three years: then he turned and
 rebelled against him.
24:2 And the LORD sent against him bands of the Chaldees, and
 bands of the Syrians, and bands of the Moabites, and bands of
 the children of Ammon, and sent them against Judah to destroy
 it, according to the word of the LORD, which he spoke by his
 servants the prophets.
24:3 Surely at the commandment of the LORD came [this] upon
 Judah, to remove [them] out of his sight, for the sins of
 Manasseh, according to all that he did;
24:4 And also for the innocent blood that he shed: for he filled
 Jerusalem with innocent blood; which the LORD would not pardon.
24:5 Now the rest of the acts of Jehoiakim, and all that he did,
 [are] they not written in the book of the chronicles of the
 kings of Judah?
24:6 So Jehoiakim slept with his fathers: and Jehoiachin his son
 reigned in his stead.
24:7 And the king of Egypt came not again any more out of his
 land: for the king of Babylon had taken from the river of Egypt
 to the river Euphrates all that pertained to the king of Egypt.
24:8 Jehoiachin [was] eighteen years old when he began to reign,
 and he reigned in Jerusalem three months. And his mother's name
 [was] Nehushta, the daughter of Elnathan of Jerusalem.
24:9 And he did [that which was] evil in the sight of the LORD,
 according to all that his father had done.
24:10 At that time the servants of Nebuchadnezzar king of
 Babylon came up against Jerusalem, and the city was besieged.
24:11 And Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came against the city,
 and his servants besieged it.
24:12 And Jehoiachin the king of Judah went out to the king of
 Babylon, he, and his mother, and his servants, and his princes,
 and his officers: and the king of Babylon took him in the
 eighth year of his reign.
24:13 And he carried out thence all the treasures of the house
 of the LORD, and the treasures of the king's house, and cut in
 pieces all the vessels of gold which Solomon king of Israel had
 made in the temple of the LORD, as the LORD had said.
24:14 And he carried away all Jerusalem, and all the princes,
 and all the mighty men of valor, [even] ten thousand captives,
 and all the artificers, and smiths: none remained, save the
 poorest sort of the people of the land.
24:15 And he carried away Jehoiachin to Babylon, and the king's
 mother, and the king's wives, and his officers, and the mighty
 of the land, [those] carried he into captivity from Jerusalem
 to Babylon.
24:16 And all the men of might, [even] seven thousand, and
 artificers and smiths a thousand, all [that were] strong [and]
 apt for war, even them the king of Babylon brought captive to
 Babylon.
24:17 And the king of Babylon made Mattaniah his father's
 brother king in his stead, and changed his name to Zedekiah.
24:18 Zedekiah [was] twenty and one years old when he began to
 reign, and he reigned eleven years in Jerusalem. And his
 mother's name [was] Hamutal, the daughter of Jeremiah of
 Libnah.
24:19 And he did [that which was] evil in the sight of the LORD,
 according to all that Jehoiakim had done.
24:20 For through the anger of the LORD it came to pass in
 Jerusalem and Judah, until he had cast them out from his
 presence, that Zedekiah rebelled against the king of Babylon.
