Jeremiah 52

52:1 Zedekiah [was] one and twenty 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
52:2 And he did [that which was] evil in the eyes of the LORD,
 according to all that Jehoiakim had done.
52:3 For through the anger of the LORD it came to pass in
 Jerusalem and Judah, till he had cast them out from his
 presence, that Zedekiah rebelled against the king of Babylon.
52:4 And it came to pass in the ninth year of his reign, in the
 tenth month, in the tenth [day] of the month, [that]
 Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon came, he and all his army,
 against Jerusalem, and encamped against it, and built forts
 against it on every side.
52:5 So the city was besieged to the eleventh year of king
52:6 And in the fourth month, in the ninth [day] of the month,
 the famine was severe in the city, so that there was no bread
 for the people of the land.
52:7 Then the city was broken up, and all the men of war fled,
 and went forth from the city by night by the way of the gate
 between the two walls, which [was] by the king's garden; (now
 the Chaldeans [were] by the city on all sides:) and they went
 by the way of the plain.
52:8 But the army of the Chaldeans pursued the king, and
 overtook Zedekiah in the plains of Jericho; and all his army
 was scattered from him.
52:9 Then they took the king, and carried him to the king of
 Babylon to Riblah in the land of Hamath; where he gave judgment
 upon him.
52:10 And the king of Babylon slew the sons of Zedekiah before
 his eyes: he slew also all the princes of Judah in Riblah.
52:11 Then he put out the eyes of Zedekiah; and the king of
 Babylon bound him in chains, and carried him to Babylon, and
 put him in prison till the day of his death.
52:12 Now in the fifth month, in the tenth [day] of the month,
 which [was] the nineteenth year of Nebuchadrezzar king of
 Babylon, came Nebuzar-adan, captain of the guard, [who] served
 the king of Babylon, into Jerusalem,
52:13 And burned the house of the LORD, and the king's house;
 and all the houses of Jerusalem, and all the houses of the
 great [men] he burned with fire:
52:14 And all the army of the Chaldeans, that [were] with the
 captain of the guard, broke down all the walls of Jerusalem on
 every side.
52:15 Then Nebuzar-adan the captain of the guard carried away
 captive [certain] of the poor of the people, and the residue of
 the people that remained in the city, and those that fell away,
 that fell to the king of Babylon, and the rest of the
52:16 But Nebuzar-adan the captain of the guard left [certain]
 of the poor of the land for vine-dressers and for husbandmen.
52:17 Also the pillars of brass that [were] in the house of the
 LORD, and the bases, and the brazen sea that [was] in the house
 of the LORD, the Chaldeans broke, and carried all the brass of
 them to Babylon.
52:18 The caldrons also, and the shovels, and the snuffers, and
 the bowls, and the spoons, and all the vessels of brass with
 which they ministered, they took away.
52:19 And the basins, and the fire-pans, and the bowls, and the
 caldrons, and the candlesticks, and the spoons, and the cups;
 [that] which [was] of gold [in] gold, and [that] which [was] of
 silver [in] silver, the captain of the guard took away.
52:20 The two pillars, one sea, and twelve brazen bulls that
 [were] under the bases, which king Solomon had made in the
 house of the LORD: the brass of all these vessels was without
52:21 And [concerning] the pillars, the hight of one pillar
 [was] eighteen cubits; and a fillet of twelve cubits
 encompassed it; and the thickness of it [was] four fingers: [it
 was] hollow.
52:22 And a capital of brass [was] upon it; and the hight of one
 capital [was] five cubits, with net-work and pomegranates upon
 the capitals around, all [of] brass. The second pillar also and
 the pomegranates [were] like to these.
52:23 And there were ninety and six pomegranates on a side;
 [and] all the pomegranates upon the net-work [were] a hundred
 on all sides.
52:24 And the captain of the guard took Seraiah the chief
 priest, and Zephaniah the second priest, and the three keepers
 of the door:
52:25 He took also out of the city a eunuch, who had the charge
 of the men of war; and seven men of them that were near the
 king's person, who were found in the city; and the principal
 scribe of the host, who mustered the people of the land; and
 sixty men of the people of the land, that were found in the
 midst of the city.
52:26 So Nebuzar-adan the captain of the guard took them, and
 brought them to the king of Babylon to Riblah.
52:27 And the king of Babylon smote them, and put them to death
 in Riblah, in the land of Hamath. Thus Judah was carried away
 captive out of his own land.
52:28 This [is] the people whom Nebuchadrezzar carried away
 captive: in the seventh year three thousand Jews and three and
52:29 In the eighteenth year of Nebuchadrezzar he carried away
 captive from Jerusalem eight hundred thirty and two persons:
52:30 In the three and twentieth year of Nebuchadrezzar,
 Nebuzar-adan the captain of the guard carried away captive of
 the Jews seven hundred forty and five persons: all the persons
 [were] four thousand and six hundred.
52:31 And it came to pass in the seven and thirtieth year of the
 captivity of Jehoiachin king of Judah, in the twelfth month, in
 the five and twentieth [day] of the month, [that] Evil-merodach
 king of Babylon in the [first] year of his reign lifted up the
 head of Jehoiachin king of Judah, and brought him out of
52:32 And spoke kindly to him, and set his throne above the
 throne of the kings that [were] with him in Babylon,
52:33 And changed his prison garments: and he continually ate
 bread before him all the days of his life.
52:34 And [for] his food there was a continual diet given him of
 the king of Babylon, every day a portion until the day of his
 death, all the days of his life.
