12 Now in the fifth month in the [a]tenth day of the month (which was the nineteenth year of the king Nebuchadnezzar King of Babel) came Nebuzaradan chief steward which [b]stood before the king of Babel in Jerusalem,

13 And burnt the House of the Lord, and the King’s house, and all the houses of Jerusalem, and all the great houses burnt he with fire.

14 And all the army of the Chaldeans that were with the chief steward, brake down all the walls of Jerusalem round about.
