As for the other events of Jehoiakim's reign,1 and all he did, are they not written in the book of the annals of the kings of Judah?
Jehoiakim rested2 with his fathers. And Jehoiachin3 his son succeeded him as king.
The king of Egypt4 did not march out from his own country again, because the king of Babylon5 had taken all his territory, from the Wadi of Egypt to the Euphrates River.
Jehoiachin6 was eighteen years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem three months. His mother's name was Nehushta7 daughter of Elnathan; she was from Jerusalem.
He did evil8 in the eyes of the LORD, just as his father had done.
At that time the officers of Nebuchadnezzar9 king of Babylon advanced on Jerusalem and laid siege to it,
and Nebuchadnezzar himself came up to the city while his officers were besieging it.
Jehoiachin king of Judah, his mother, his attendants, his nobles and his officials all surrendered10 to him. In the eighth year of the reign of the king of Babylon, he took Jehoiachin prisoner.
As the LORD had declared,11 Nebuchadnezzar removed all the treasures12 from the temple of the LORD and from the royal palace, and took away all the gold articles13 that Solomon14 king of Israel had made for the temple of the LORD.
He carried into exile15 all Jerusalem: all the officers and fighting men,16 and all the craftsmen and artisans--a total of ten thousand. Only the poorest17 people of the land were left.
Nebuchadnezzar took Jehoiachin18 captive to Babylon. He also took from Jerusalem to Babylon the king's mother,19 his wives, his officials and the leading men20 of the land.
