Then all the (A)officials of the king of Babylon came in and sat down at the (B)Middle Gate: Nergal-sar-ezer, Samgar-nebu, Sar-sekim the [a]Rab-saris, Nergal-sar-ezer the [b]Rab-mag, and all the rest of the officials of the king of Babylon. When Zedekiah the king of Judah and all the men of war saw them, they (C)fled and went out of the city at night by way of the king’s garden through the gate (D)between the two walls; and he went out toward the [c]Arabah. But the army of the (E)Chaldeans pursued them and overtook Zedekiah in the (F)plains of Jericho; and they seized him and brought him up to Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon at (G)Riblah in the land of Hamath, and he passed sentence on him.
