2 Kings 24


The Nations Prevail Over Judah

1In his days [5ascended 1Nebuchadnezzar 2the 3king 4of Babylon]. And [2became 3his 1Jehoiakim] servant three years. And he turned and annulled allegiance to him. 2And the  lord sent against him the armed bands of the Chaldeans, and the armed bands of Syrians, and the armed bands of Moab, and the armed bands of the sons of Ammon. And he sent them against Judah to prevail against it, according to the word of the  lord, which he spoke by the hand of his servants the prophets. 3Only a rage of the  lord was against Judah, to remove it from in front of him, on account of the sins of Manasseh, according to all as much as he did; 4and indeed for the [2blood 1innocent] which he poured out, and filled Jerusalem [2blood 1of innocent]. And [2did not 3want 1the  lord] to atone. 5And the rest of the words of Jehoiakim, and all as much as he did, behold are not these written upon the scroll of the words of the days of the kings of Judah? 6And Jehoiakim slept with his fathers. And [3reigned 1Jehoiachin 2his son] instead of him. 7And [3did not 4proceed 5any longer 1the king 2of Egypt] to come forth out of his land, for [3took 1the king 2of Babylon] from the rushing stream of Egypt unto the river Euphrates all as much as was of the king of Egypt.

Jehoiachin Reigns in Jerusalem

8[2a son 3being eighteen 4years old 1Jehoiachin was] in his taking reign, and three months he reigned in Jerusalem. And the name to his mother was Nehushta daughter of Elnathan of Jerusalem. 9And he did the wicked thing in the eyes of the  lord, according to all as much as [2did 1his father].

Nebuchadnezzar Lays Siege to Jerusalem

10In that time [4ascended 1Nebuchadnezzar 2king 3of Babylon] to Jerusalem, and [3came 1the 2city] to be encompassed about. 11And [4entered 1Nebuchadnezzar 2king 3of Babylon] unto the city, and his servants assaulted it. 12And [4came forth 1Jehoiachin 2king 3of Judah] to the king of Babylon, he and his mother, and his servants, and his rulers, and his eunuchs. And [3took 4them 1the king 2of Babylon] in the eighth year of his kingdom. 13And he brought forth from there all the treasures of the ones in the house of the  lord, and the treasures of the house of the king. And he cut off all the items of gold which [5made 1Solomon 2the 3king 4of Israel] for the temple of the  lord, according to the saying of the  lord. 14And he resettled Jerusalem, and all the rulers, and all the mighty ones with strength into captivity -- ten thousand, and every fabricator, and the one so consigned. They did not leave behind except the ones being in need of the people of the land. 15And he resettled Jehoiachin into Babylon, and the mother of the king, and the wives of the king, and his eunuchs. And the strong ones of the land he took away for resettlement from out of Jerusalem unto Babylon. 16And all the [2men 1mighty] -- seven thousand, and the fabricator, and the one so consigned -- thousands of all the mighty men in strength making war. And [3led 4them 1the king 2of Babylon] in a displacement unto Babylon.

Zedekiah Reigns in Judah

17And [3gave reign to 1the king 2of Babylon] Mattaniah brother of his father instead of him. And he placed [3to him 1the name 2Zedekiah]. 18[2a son 3being twenty 4and 5one 6years old 1Zedekiah was] in his taking reign. And eleven years he reigned in Jerusalem. And the name to his mother was Hamutal, daughter of Jeremiah of Libnah. 19And he did the wicked thing before the  lord according to all as much as Jehoiakim did. 20For by the rage of the  lord the rage was on Jerusalem and on Judah, until he threw them from his face. And Zedekiah annulled allegiance to the king of Babylon.
