2 Kings 25

CEB 1 So in the ninth year of Zedekiah's rule, on the tenth day of the tenth month, Babylon's King Nebuchadnezzar attacked Jerusalem with his entire army. He camped beside the city and built a siege wall all around it. NRS 1 And in the ninth year of his reign, in the tenth month, on the tenth day of the month, King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon came with all his army against Jerusalem, and laid siege to it; they built siegeworks against it all around. CEB 2 The city was under attack until King Zedekiah's eleventh year. NRS 2 So the city was besieged until the eleventh year of King Zedekiah. CEB 3 On the ninth day of the month, the famine in the city got so bad that no food remained for the common people. NRS 3 On the ninth day of the fourth month the famine became so severe in the city that there was no food for the people of the land. CEB 4 Then the enemy broke into the city. All the soldiers fled by night using the gate between the two walls near the King's Garden. The Chaldeans were surrounding the city, so the soldiers ran toward the desert plain. NRS 4 Then a breach was made in the city wall; the king with all the soldiers fled by night by the way of the gate between the two walls, by the king's garden, though the Chaldeans were all around the city. They went in the direction of the Arabah. CEB 5 But the Chaldean army chased King Zedekiah and caught up with him in the Jericho plains. His entire army deserted him. NRS 5 But the army of the Chaldeans pursued the king, and overtook him in the plains of Jericho; all his army was scattered, deserting him. CEB 6 So the Chaldeans captured the king and brought him back to the Babylonian king, who was at Riblah. There his punishment was determined. NRS 6 Then they captured the king and brought him up to the king of Babylon at Riblah, who passed sentence on him. CEB 7 Zedekiah's sons were slaughtered right before his eyes. Then he was blinded, put in bronze chains, and taken off to Babylon. NRS 7 They slaughtered the sons of Zedekiah before his eyes, then put out the eyes of Zedekiah; they bound him in fetters and took him to Babylon. CEB 8 On the seventh day of the fifth month in the nineteenth year of Babylon's King Nebuchadnezzar, Nebuzaradan arrived at Jerusalem. He was the commander of the guard and an official of the Babylonian king. NRS 8 In the fifth month, on the seventh day of the month—which was the nineteenth year of King Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon—Nebuzaradan, the captain of the bodyguard, a servant of the king of Babylon, came to Jerusalem. CEB 9 He burned down the LORD's temple, the royal palace, and all of Jerusalem's houses. He burned down every important building. NRS 9 He burned the house of the Lord, the king's house, and all the houses of Jerusalem; every great house he burned down. CEB 10 The whole Chaldean army under the commander of the guard tore down the walls surrounding Jerusalem. NRS 10 All the army of the Chaldeans who were with the captain of the guard broke down the walls around Jerusalem. CEB 11 Then Nebuzaradan the commander of the guard exiled the people who were left in the city, those who had already surrendered to Babylon's king, and the rest of the population. NRS 11 Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard carried into exile the rest of the people who were left in the city and the deserters who had defected to the king of Babylon—all the rest of the population. CEB 12 The commander of the guard left some of the land's poor people behind to work the vineyards and be farmers. NRS 12 But the captain of the guard left some of the poorest people of the land to be vinedressers and tillers of the soil. CEB 13 The Chaldeans shattered the bronze columns, the stands, and the bronze Sea that were in the LORD's temple. They carried the bronze off to Babylon. NRS 13 The bronze pillars that were in the house of the Lord, as well as the stands and the bronze sea that were in the house of the Lord, the Chaldeans broke in pieces, and carried the bronze to Babylon. CEB 14 They also took the pots, the shovels, the wick trimmers, the dishes, and all the bronze items that had been used in the temple. NRS 14 They took away the pots, the shovels, the snuffers, the dishes for incense, and all the bronze vessels used in the temple service, CEB 15 The commander of the guard took the fire pans and the sprinkling bowls, which were made of pure gold and pure silver. NRS 15 as well as the firepans and the basins. What was made of gold the captain of the guard took away for the gold, and what was made of silver, for the silver. CEB 16 The bronze in all these objects—the two pillars, the Sea, and the stands that Solomon had made for the LORD's temple—was too heavy to weigh. NRS 16 As for the two pillars, the one sea, and the stands, which Solomon had made for the house of the Lord, the bronze of all these vessels was beyond weighing. CEB 17 Each pillar was twenty-seven feet high. The bronze capital on top of the first pillar was four and a half feet high. Decorative lattices and pomegranates, all made from bronze, were around the capital. And the second pillar was decorated with lattices just like the first. NRS 17 The height of the one pillar was eighteen cubits, and on it was a bronze capital; the height of the capital was three cubits; latticework and pomegranates, all of bronze, were on the capital all around. The second pillar had the same, with the latticework. CEB 18 The commander of the guard also took away Seraiah the chief priest, Zephaniah the priest next in rank, and the three doorkeepers. NRS 18 The captain of the guard took the chief priest Seraiah, the second priest Zephaniah, and the three guardians of the threshold; CEB 19 Of those still left in the city, Nebuzaradan took away an officer who was in charge of the army and five royal advisors who were discovered in the city. He also took away the secretary of the officer responsible for drafting the land's people to fight, as well as sixty people who were discovered in the city. NRS 19 from the city he took an officer who had been in command of the soldiers, and five men of the king's council who were found in the city; the secretary who was the commander of the army who mustered the people of the land; and sixty men of the people of the land who were found in the city. CEB 20 Nebuzaradan the commander of the guard took all of these people and brought them to the Babylonian king at Riblah. NRS 20 Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard took them, and brought them to the king of Babylon at Riblah. CEB 21 The king of Babylon struck them down, killing them in Riblah in the land of Hamath. So Judah was exiled from its land. NRS 21 The king of Babylon struck them down and put them to death at Riblah in the land of Hamath. So Judah went into exile out of its land. CEB 22 Babylon's King Nebuchadnezzar put Gedaliah, Ahikam's son and Shaphan's grandson, in charge of the people he had left behind in the land of Judah. NRS 22 He appointed Gedaliah son of Ahikam son of Shaphan as governor over the people who remained in the land of Judah, whom King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon had left. CEB 23 All the army officers and their soldiers heard that the Babylonian king had appointed Gedaliah as governor, so they came with their men to Gedaliah at Mizpah. The officers were Ishmael, Nethaniah's son; Johanan, Kareah's son; Seraiah, Tanhumeth's son who was a Netophathite; and Jaazaniah, Maacathite's son. NRS 23 Now when all the captains of the forces and their men heard that the king of Babylon had appointed Gedaliah as governor, they came with their men to Gedaliah at Mizpah, namely, Ishmael son of Nethaniah, Johanan son of Kareah, Seraiah son of Tanhumeth the Netophathite, and Jaazaniah son of the Maacathite. CEB 24 Gedaliah made a solemn pledge to them and their soldiers, telling them, "Don't be afraid of the Chaldean officials. Stay in the land and serve the Babylonian king, and things will go well for you." NRS 24 Gedaliah swore to them and their men, saying, "Do not be afraid because of the Chaldean officials; live in the land, serve the king of Babylon, and it shall be well with you." CEB 25 But in the seventh month, Ishmael, Nethaniah's son and Elishama's grandson, who was from the royal family, came with ten soldiers, and they struck Gedaliah, and he died. They also killed the Judeans and the Chaldeans who were with him at Mizpah. NRS 25 But in the seventh month, Ishmael son of Nethaniah son of Elishama, of the royal family, came with ten men; they struck down Gedaliah so that he died, along with the Judeans and Chaldeans who were with him at Mizpah. CEB 26 Then all the people, young and old, along with the army officers, departed for Egypt because they were afraid of the Chaldeans. NRS 26 Then all the people, high and low, and the captains of the forces set out and went to Egypt; for they were afraid of the Chaldeans. CEB 27 In the year that Awil-merodach became king of Babylon, he released Judah's King Jehoiachin from prison. This happened in the thirty-seventh year of the exile of King Jehoiachin, on the twenty-seventh day of the twelfth month. NRS 27 In the thirty-seventh year of the exile of King Jehoiachin of Judah, in the twelfth month, on the twenty-seventh day of the month, King Evil-merodach of Babylon, in the year that he began to reign, released King Jehoiachin of Judah from prison; CEB 28 Awil-merodach spoke kindly to Jehoiachin and seated him above the other kings who were with him in Babylon. NRS 28 he spoke kindly to him, and gave him a seat above the other seats of the kings who were with him in Babylon. CEB 29 So Jehoiachin took off his prisoner clothes and ate regularly in the king's presence for the rest of his life. NRS 29 So Jehoiachin put aside his prison clothes. Every day of his life he dined regularly in the king's presence. CEB 30 At the king's command, a regular food allowance was given to him every day for the rest of his life. NRS 30 For his allowance, a regular allowance was given him by the king, a portion every day, as long as he lived.
