Jeremiah 52:1-6 (The Message)

View In My Bible
1 Zedekiah was twenty-one years old when he started out as king. He was king in Jerusalem for eleven years. His mother's name was Hamutal, the daughter of Jeremiah. Her hometown was Libnah. 2 As far as God was concerned, Zedekiah was just one more evil king, a carbon copy of Jehoiakim. 3 The source of all this doom to Jerusalem and Judah was God's anger. God turned his back on them as an act of judgment. 4 Nebuchadnezzar set out for Jerusalem with a full army. He set up camp and sealed off the city by building siege mounds around it. 5 He arrived on the ninth year and tenth month of Zedekiah's reign. The city was under siege for nineteen months (until the eleventh year of Zedekiah). 6 By the fourth month of Zedekiah's eleventh year, on the ninth day of the month, the famine was so bad that there wasn't so much as a crumb of bread for anyone.
