2 Kings 25:1-6

Fall and Captivity of Judah

1 a  And in the ninth year of his reign, in the tenth month, on the tenth day of the month b  Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came with all his army against Jerusalem and laid siege to it. c  And they built siegeworks all around it. 2So the city was besieged till the eleventh year of King Zedekiah. 3On the ninth day of the fourth month d  the famine was so severe in the city that there was no food for the people of the land. 4Then a breach was made in the city, and all the men of war fled by night by the way of the gate between the two walls, by e  the king’s garden, and f  the Chaldeans were around the city. And they went in the direction of the g  Arabah. 5But the army of the Chaldeans pursued the king and overtook him in the plains of Jericho, and all his army was scattered from him. 6Then they captured the king h  and brought him up to the king of Babylon at i  Riblah, and they passed sentence on him.
