The Fall of Jerusalem

1 1Zedekiah was twenty-one years old when he became king, and he reigned eleven years in Jerusalem; and his mother's name was a2Hamutal the daughter of Jeremiah of 3Libnah. 2 He did 4evil in the sight of the LORD like all that 5Jehoiakim had done. 3 For through the 6anger of the LORD this came about in Jerusalem and Judah until He cast them out from His presence. And Zedekiah 7rebelled against the king of Babylon. 4 8Now it came about in the ninth year of his reign, on the tenth day of the tenth month, that Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came, he and all his army, against Jerusalem, camped against it and built a 9siege wall all around bit. 5 10So the city was under siege until the eleventh year of King Zedekiah. 6 On the ninth day of the 11fourth month the 12famine was so severe in the city that there was no food for the people of the land.
