The Fall of Jerusalem to Babylon

39In the ninth year of Zedekiah king of Judah, in the tenth month, King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon advanced against Jerusalem with his entire army and laid siege to it.H8671H8141H6667H4428H3063H6224H2320H935H5019H4428H894H2428H3389H6696 2In the fourth month of Zedekiah's eleventh year, on the ninth day of the month, the city was broken into.H6249H6240H8141H6667H7243H2320H8672H2320H5892H1234 3All the officials of the king of Babylon entered and sat at the Middle Gate: Nergal-sharezer, Samgar-nebo, Sarsechim the Rab-saris, Nergal-sharezer the Rab-mag, and all the rest of the officials of Babylon's king.H8269H4428H894H935H3427H8432H8179H5371H5562H8310H7249H5371H7248H7611H8269H4428H894 4When he saw them, Zedekiah king of Judah and all the soldiers fled. They left the city at night by way of the king's garden through the gate between the two walls. They left along the route to the Arabah.H6667H4428H3063H7200H582H4421H1272H3318H5892H3915H1870H4428H1588H8179H2346H3318H1870H6160 5However, the Chaldean army pursued them and overtook Zedekiah in the plains of Jericho, arrested him, and brought him to Nebuchadnezzar, Babylon's king, at Riblah in the land of Hamath. The king passed sentence on him [there].H3778H2428H7291H310H5381H6667H6160H3405H3947H5927H5019H4428H894H7247H776H2574H1696H4941 6At Riblah the king of Babylon slaughtered Zedekiah's sons before his eyes, and he [also] slaughtered all Judah's nobles.H4428H894H7819H1121H6667H7247H5869H4428H894H7819H2715H3063 7Then he blinded Zedekiah and put him in bronze chains to take him to Babylon.H5786H6667H5869H631H5178H935H894 8The Chaldeans next burned down the king's palace and the people's houses and tore down the walls of Jerusalem.H3778H8313H4428H1004H1004H5971H784H5422H2346H3389 9Nebuzaradan, the commander of the guards, deported to Babylon the rest of the people— those who had remained in the city and those deserters who had defected to him along with the rest of the people who had remained.H5018H7227H2876H1540H894H3499H5971H7604H5892H5307H5307H3499H5971H7604 10[However,] Nebuzaradan, the commander of the guards, left in the land of Judah some of the poor people who owned nothing, and he gave them vineyards and fields at that time.H5018H7227H2876H7604H1800H5971H3972H776H3063H5414H3754H3010H3117

Jeremiah Freed by Nebuchadnezzar

11[Speaking] through Nebuzaradan, captain of the guard, King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon gave orders concerning Jeremiah, saying:H5019H4428H894H6680H3414H3027H5018H7227H2876H559 12"Take him, look after him, and don't let any harm come to him; do for him whatever he says."H3947H5869H7760H6213H3972H7451H6213H1696 13Nebuzaradan, captain of the guard, Nebushazban the Rab-saris, Nergal-sharezer the Rab-mag, and all the captains of the king of BabylonH5018H7227H2876H7971H5021H7249H5371H7248H4428H894H7227 14had Jeremiah brought from the guard's courtyard and turned him over to Gedaliah son of Ahikam, son of Shaphan, to take him home. So he settled among [his own] people.H7971H3947H3414H2691H4307H5414H1436H1121H296H1121H8227H3318H1004H3427H8432H5971 15Now the word of the LORD had come to Jeremiah when he was confined in the guard's courtyard:H1697H3068H3414H6113H2691H4307H559 16"Go tell Ebed-melech the Cushite: This is what the LORD of Hosts, the God of Israel, says: I am about to fulfill My words for harm and not for good against this city. They will take place before your eyes on that day.H1980H559H5663H3569H559H559H3068H6635H430H3478H935H1697H5892H7451H2896H3117H6440 17But I will rescue you on that day"— [this is] the LORD's declaration— "and you will not be handed over to the men you fear.H5337H3117H5002H3068H5414H3027H582H6440H3016 18Indeed, I will certainly deliver you so that you do not fall by the sword. Because you have trusted in Me, you will keep your life like the spoils [of war]." [This is] the LORD's declaration.H4422H4422H5307H2719H5315H7998H982H5002H3068
