New Century Version (NCV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Zedekiah was twenty-one years old when he became king, and he was king in Jerusalem for eleven years. His mother's name was Hamutal daughter of Jeremiah, and she was from Libnah. 1 Zedekiah was twenty-one years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem eleven years. His mother's name was Hamutal daughter of Jeremiah; she was from Libnah.
2 Zedekiah did what the Lord said was wrong, just as Jehoiakim had done. 2 He did evil in the eyes of the LORD, just as Jehoiakim had done.
3 All this happened in Jerusalem and Judah because the Lord was angry with them. Finally, he threw them out of his presence. Zedekiah turned against the king of Babylon. 3 It was because of the LORD's anger that all this happened to Jerusalem and Judah, and in the end he thrust them from his presence. Now Zedekiah rebelled against the king of Babylon.
4 Then Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon marched against Jerusalem with his whole army. They made a camp around the city and built devices all around the city walls to attack it. This happened on Zedekiah's ninth year, tenth month, and tenth day as king. 4 So in the ninth year of Zedekiah's reign, on the tenth day of the tenth month, Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon marched against Jerusalem with his whole army. They camped outside the city and built siege works all around it.
5 And the city was under attack until Zedekiah's eleventh year as king. 5 The city was kept under siege until the eleventh year of King Zedekiah.
6 By the ninth day of the fourth month, the hunger was terrible in the city; there was no food for the people to eat. 6 By the ninth day of the fourth month the famine in the city had become so severe that there was no food for the people to eat.
