BBE(i) 2 And the town was shut in by their forces till the eleventh year of King Zedekiah. 3 Now on the ninth day of the fourth month, the store of food in the town was almost gone, so that there was no food for the people of the land. 4 So an opening was made in the wall of the town, and all the men of war went in flight by night through the doorway between the two walls which was by the king's garden; now the Chaldaeans were stationed round the town: and the king went by the way of the Arabah. 5 But the Chaldaean army went after the king, and overtook him in the lowlands of Jericho, and all his army went in flight from him in every direction. 6 And they made the king a prisoner and took him up to the king of Babylon at Riblah to be judged. 7 And they put the sons of Zedekiah to death before his eyes, and then they put out his eyes, and chaining him with iron bands, took him to Babylon.
