For this is what the LORD Almighty says about the pillars, the Sea,1 the movable stands and the other articles2 that are left in this city,
which Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon did not take away when he carried3 Jehoiachina4 son of Jehoiakim king of Judah into exile from Jerusalem to Babylon, along with all the nobles of Judah and Jerusalem--
yes, this is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says about the things that are left in the house of the LORD and in the palace of the king of Judah and in Jerusalem:
'They will be taken5 to Babylon and there they will remain until the day6 I come for them,' declares the LORD. 'Then I will bring7 them back and restore them to this place.' "
