View In My Bible
8 1Jehoiachin was 2eighteen years old when he became king, and he reigned three months in Jerusalem; and his mother's name was Nehushta the daughter of Elnathan of Jerusalem. 9 He did evil in the sight of the LORD, 3according to all that his father had done.

Deportation to Babylon

10 At that time the servants of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon went up to Jerusalem, and the city came under siege. 11 And Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon came to the city, while his servants were besieging it. 12 4Jehoiachin the king of Judah went out to the king of Babylon, he and his mother and his servants and his captains and his officials. So 5the king of Babylon took him captive in the eighth year of his reign. 13 6He carried out from there all the treasures of the house of the LORD, and the treasures of the king's house, and 7cut in pieces all the vessels of gold 8which Solomon king of Israel had made in the temple of the LORD, just as the LORD had said. 14 Then 9he led away into exile all Jerusalem and all the captains and all the mighty men of valor, 10ten thousand captives, and 11all the craftsmen and the smiths. None remained 12except the poorest people of the land. 15 So 13he led Jehoiachin away into exile to Babylon; also the king's mother and the king's wives and his officials and the leading men of the land, he led away into exile from Jerusalem to Babylon. 16 All the men of valor, 14seven thousand, and the craftsmen and the smiths, one thousand, all strong and fit for war, and these the king of Babylon brought into exile to Babylon.
