And they went by way of the Arabah. NIV 4 Then the city wall was broken through, and the whole army fled at night through the gate between the two walls near the king’s garden, though the Babylonians were surrounding the city.

NIV 8 On the seventh day of the fifth month, in the nineteenth year of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, Nebuzaradan commander of the imperial guard, an official of the king of Babylon, came to Jerusalem. NAS 9 He burned the house of the LORD , the king's house, and all the houses of Jerusalem; even every great house he burned with fire.

NAS 10 So all the army of the Chaldeans who were with the captain of the guard broke down the walls around Jerusalem.

NIV 11 Nebuzaradan the commander of the guard carried into exile the people who remained in the city, along with the rest of the populace and those who had deserted to the king of Babylon.

NAS 16 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 weight. NIV 16 The bronze from the two pillars, the Sea and the movable stands, which Solomon had made for the temple of the LORD, was more than could be weighed. NAS 17 The height of the one pillar was eighteen cubits, and a bronze capital was on it; the height of the capital was three cubits, with a network and pomegranates on the capital all around, all of bronze.

NAS 20 Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard took them and brought them to the king of Babylon at Riblah. NIV 20 Nebuzaradan the commander took them all and brought them to the king of Babylon at Riblah. NAS 21 Then the king of Babylon struck them down and put them to death at Riblah in the land of Hamath. So Judah was led away into exile from its land. NIV 21 There at Riblah, in the land of Hamath, the king had them executed. So Judah went into captivity, away from her land.

NIV 22 Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon appointed Gedaliah son of Ahikam, the son of Shaphan, to be over the people he had left behind in Judah. NAS 23 When all the captains of the forces, they and their men, heard that the king of Babylon had appointed Gedaliah governor, they came to Gedaliah to Mizpah, namely, Ishmael the son of Nethaniah, and Johanan the son of Kareah, and Seraiah the son of Tanhumeth the Netophathite, and Jaazaniah the son of the Maacathite, they and their men.

NAS 24 Gedaliah swore to them and their men and said to them, "Do not be afraid of the servants of the Chaldeans; live in the land and serve the king of Babylon, and it will be well with you." NIV 24 Gedaliah took an oath to reassure them and their men. “Do not be afraid of the Babylonian officials,” he said. “Settle down in the land and serve the king of Babylon, and it will go well with you.” NAS 25 But it came about in the seventh month, that Ishmael the son of Nethaniah, the son of Elishama, of the royal family, came with ten men and struck Gedaliah down so that he died along with the Jews and the Chaldeans who were with him at Mizpah. NIV 25 In the seventh month, however, Ishmael son of Nethaniah, the son of Elishama, who was of royal blood, came with ten men and assassinated Gedaliah and also the men of Judah and the Babylonians who were with him at Mizpah.

NAS 30 and for his allowance, a regular allowance was given him by the king, a portion for each day, all the days of his life. NIV 30 Day by day the king gave Jehoiachin a regular allowance as long as he lived.
