2 Kings 24:10-17
Christian Standard Bible
Deportations to Babylon
10 At that time(A) the servants of King Nebuchadnezzar(B) of Babylon marched up to Jerusalem, and the city came under siege. 11 King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon came to the city while his servants were besieging it. 12 King Jehoiachin of Judah, along with his mother, his servants, his commanders, and his officials,[a] surrendered to the king of Babylon.(C)
So the king of Babylon took him captive in the eighth year of his reign. 13 He also carried off from there all the treasures of the Lord’s temple and the treasures of the king’s palace, and he cut into pieces all the gold articles that King Solomon of Israel had made(D) for the Lord’s sanctuary, just as the Lord had predicted.(E) 14 He deported all Jerusalem and all the commanders and all the best soldiers(F)—ten thousand captives(G) including all the craftsmen and metalsmiths.(H) Except for the poorest people of the land,(I) no one remained.
15 Nebuchadnezzar deported Jehoiachin to Babylon. He took the king’s mother, the king’s wives, his officials, and the leading men of the land into exile from Jerusalem to Babylon.(J) 16 The king of Babylon brought captive into Babylon all seven thousand of the best soldiers and one thousand craftsmen and metalsmiths—all strong and fit for war. 17 And the king of Babylon made Mattaniah, Jehoiachin’s[b] uncle, king in his place and changed his name to Zedekiah.(K)Read full chapter
