2 Kings 25

NKJV 1 Now it came to pass in the ninth year of his reign, in the tenth month, on the tenth day of the month, that Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon and all his army came against Jerusalem and encamped against it; and they built a siege wall against it all around. NIV 1 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. He encamped outside the city and built siege works all around it. NKJV 2 So the city was besieged until the eleventh year of King Zedekiah. NIV 2 The city was kept under siege until the eleventh year of King Zedekiah. NKJV 3 By the ninth day of the fourth month the famine had become so severe in the city that there was no food for the people of the land. NIV 3 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. NKJV 4 Then the city wall was broken through, and all the men of war fled at night by way of the gate between two walls, which was by the king's garden, even though the Chaldeans were still encamped all around against the city. And the king went by way of the plain. 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. They fled toward the Arabah, NKJV 5 But the army of the Chaldeans pursued the king, and they overtook him in the plains of Jericho. All his army was scattered from him. NIV 5 but the Babylonian army pursued the king and overtook him in the plains of Jericho. All his soldiers were separated from him and scattered, NKJV 6 So they took the king and brought him up to the king of Babylon at Riblah, and they pronounced judgment on him. NIV 6 and he was captured. He was taken to the king of Babylon at Riblah, where sentence was pronounced on him. NKJV 7 Then they killed the sons of Zedekiah before his eyes, put out the eyes of Zedekiah, bound him with bronze fetters, and took him to Babylon. NIV 7 They killed the sons of Zedekiah before his eyes. Then they put out his eyes, bound him with bronze shackles and took him to Babylon. NKJV 8 And 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 guard, a servant of the king of Babylon, came to Jerusalem. 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. NKJV 9 He burned the house of the Lord and the king's house; all the houses of Jerusalem, that is, all the houses of the great, he burned with fire. NIV 9 He set fire to the temple of the LORD, the royal palace and all the houses of Jerusalem. Every important building he burned down. NKJV 10 And all the army of the Chaldeans who were with the captain of the guard broke down the walls of Jerusalem all around. NIV 10 The whole Babylonian army under the commander of the imperial guard broke down the walls around Jerusalem. NKJV 11 Then Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard carried away captive the rest of the people who remained in the city and the defectors who had deserted to the king of Babylon, with the rest of the multitude. 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. NKJV 12 But the captain of the guard left some of the poor of the land as vinedressers and farmers. NIV 12 But the commander left behind some of the poorest people of the land to work the vineyards and fields. NKJV 13 The bronze pillars that were in the house of the Lord, and the carts and the bronze Sea that were in the house of the Lord, the Chaldeans broke in pieces, and carried their bronze to Babylon. NIV 13 The Babylonians broke up the bronze pillars, the movable stands and the bronze Sea that were at the temple of the LORD and they carried the bronze to Babylon. NKJV 14 They also took away the pots, the shovels, the trimmers, the spoons, and all the bronze utensils with which the priests ministered. NIV 14 They also took away the pots, shovels, wick trimmers, dishes and all the bronze articles used in the temple service. NKJV 15 The firepans and the basins, the things of solid gold and solid silver, the captain of the guard took away. NIV 15 The commander of the imperial guard took away the censers and sprinkling bowls—all that were made of pure gold or silver. NKJV 16 The two pillars, one Sea, and the carts, which Solomon had made for the house of the Lord, the bronze of all these articles was beyond measure. 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. NKJV 17 The height of one pillar was eighteen cubits, and the capital on it was of bronze. The height of the capital was three cubits, and the network and pomegranates all around the capital were all of bronze. The second pillar was the same, with a network. NIV 17 Each pillar was eighteen cubits high. The bronze capital on top of one pillar was three cubits high and was decorated with a network and pomegranates of bronze all around. The other pillar, with its network, was similar. NKJV 18 And the captain of the guard took Seraiah the chief priest, Zephaniah the second priest, and the three doorkeepers. NIV 18 The commander of the guard took as prisoners Seraiah the chief priest, Zephaniah the priest next in rank and the three doorkeepers. NKJV 19 He also took out of the city an officer who had charge of the men of war, five men of the king's close associates who were found in the city, the chief recruiting officer 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. NIV 19 Of those still in the city, he took the officer in charge of the fighting men, and five royal advisers. He also took the secretary who was chief officer in charge of conscripting the people of the land and sixty of the conscripts who were found in the city. NKJV 20 So Nebuzaradan, captain of the guard, took these 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. NKJV 21 Then the king of Babylon struck them and put them to death at Riblah in the land of Hamath. Thus Judah was carried away captive from its own 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. NKJV 22 Then he made Gedaliah the son of Ahikam, the son of Shaphan, governor over the people who remained in the land of Judah, whom Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon had left. 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. NKJV 23 Now when all the captains of the armies, they and their men, heard that the king of Babylon had made Gedaliah governor, they came to Gedaliah at Mizpah--Ishmael the son of Nethaniah, Johanan the son of Careah, Seraiah the son of Tanhumeth the Netophathite, and Jaazaniah the son of a Maachathite, they and their men. NIV 23 When all the army officers and their men heard that the king of Babylon had appointed Gedaliah as governor, they came to Gedaliah at Mizpah—Ishmael son of Nethaniah, Johanan son of Kareah, Seraiah son of Tanhumeth the Netophathite, Jaazaniah the son of the Maakathite, and their men. NKJV 24 And Gedaliah took an oath before them and their men, and said to them, "Do not be afraid of the servants of the Chaldeans. Dwell in the land and serve the king of Babylon, and it shall 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.” NKJV 25 But it happened in the seventh month that Ishmael the son of Nethaniah, the son of Elishama, of the royal family, came with ten men and struck and killed Gedaliah, the Jews, as well as 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. NKJV 26 And all the people, small and great, and the captains of the armies, arose and went to Egypt; for they were afraid of the Chaldeans. NIV 26 At this, all the people from the least to the greatest, together with the army officers, fled to Egypt for fear of the Babylonians. NKJV 27 Now it came to pass in the thirty-seventh year of the captivity of Jehoiachin king of Judah, in the twelfth month, on the twenty-seventh day of the month, that Evil-Merodach king of Babylon, in the year that he began to reign, released Jehoiachin king of Judah from prison. NIV 27 In the thirty-seventh year of the exile of Jehoiachin king of Judah, in the year Awel-Marduk became king of Babylon, he released Jehoiachin king of Judah from prison. He did this on the twenty-seventh day of the twelfth month. NKJV 28 He spoke kindly to him, and gave him a more prominent seat than those of the kings who were with him in Babylon. NIV 28 He spoke kindly to him and gave him a seat of honor higher than those of the other kings who were with him in Babylon. NKJV 29 So Jehoiachin changed from his prison garments, and he ate bread regularly before the king all the days of his life. NIV 29 So Jehoiachin put aside his prison clothes and for the rest of his life ate regularly at the king’s table. NKJV 30 And as for his provisions, there was a regular ration 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.
