Zedekiah Reigns in Judah

18 e  Zedekiah was twenty-one years old when he became king, and he reigned eleven years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name was f  Hamutal the daughter of Jeremiah of Libnah. 19And he did what was evil in the sight of the  Lord, g  according to all that Jehoiakim had done. 20For because of the anger of the  Lord it came to the point in Jerusalem and Judah that he cast them out from his presence.

h  And Zedekiah rebelled against the king of Babylon.
