1 H5971 Then the people H776 of the land H3947 took H3059 Jehoahaz H1121 the son H2977 of Josiah, H4427 and made him king H1 in his father's H3389 place in Jerusalem.
2 H3099 Jehoahaz H6242 was twenty H7969 and three H8141 years H1121 old H4427 when he began to reign, H4427 and he reigned H7969 three H2320 months H3389 in Jerusalem.
3 H4428 And the king H4714 of Egypt H5493 deposed H3389 him at Jerusalem, H6064 and fined H776 the land H3967 a hundred H3603 talents H3701 of silver H3603 and a talent H2091 of gold.
4 H4428 And the king H4714 of Egypt H471 made Eliakim H251 his brother H4427 king H3063 over Judah H3389 and Jerusalem, H5437 and turned H8034 his name H3079 to Jehoiakim. H5224 And Necho H3947 took H3099 Jehoahaz H251 his brother, H935 and carried H4714 him to Egypt.
5 H3079 Jehoiakim H6242 was twenty H2568 and five H8141 years H1121 old H4427 when he began to reign, H4427 and he reigned H259 eleven H8141 years H3389 in Jerusalem: H6213 and he did H7451 that which was evil H5869 in the sight H3068 of the Lord H430 his God.
6 H5927 Against him came up H5019 Nebuchadnezzar H4428 king H894 of Babylon, H631 and bound H5178 him in fetters, H3212 to carry H894 him to Babylon.
7 H5019 Nebuchadnezzar H935 also carried H3627 of the vessels H1004 of the house H3068 of the Lord H894 to Babylon, H5414 and put H1964 them in his temple H894 at Babylon.
8 H3499 Now the rest H1697 of the acts H3079 of Jehoiakim, H8441 and his abominations H6213 which he did, H4672 and that which was found H3789 in him, behold, they are written H5612 in the book H4428 of the kings H3478 of Israel H3063 and Judah: H3078 and Jehoiachin H1121 his son H4427 reigned in his place.
9 H3078 Jehoiachin H8083 was eight H8141 years H1121 old H4427 when he began to reign, H4427 and he reigned H7969 three H2320 months H6235 and ten H3117 days H3389 in Jerusalem: H6213 and he did H7451 that which was evil H5869 in the sight H3068 of the Lord.
10 H8141 And when the year H8666 was expired, H4428 king H5019 Nebuchadnezzar H7971 sent, H935 and brought H894 him to Babylon, H2532 with the good H3627 vessels H1004 of the house H3068 of the Lord, H6667 and made Zedekiah H251 his brother H4427 king H3063 over Judah H3389 and Jerusalem.
11 H6667 Zedekiah H259 was one H6242 and twenty H8141 years H1121 old H4427 when he began to reign, H4427 and reigned H259 eleven H8141 years H3389 in Jerusalem.
12 H6213 And he did H7451 that which was evil H5869 in the sight H3068 of the Lord H430 his God, H3665 and humbled H6440 not himself before H3414 Jeremiah H5030 the prophet H6310 speaking from the mouth H3068 of the Lord.
13 H4775 And he also rebelled H4428 against king H5019 Nebuchadnezzar, H7650 who had made him swear H430 by God: H7185 but he stiffened H6203 his neck, H553 and hardened H3824 his heart H7725 from turning H3068 unto the Lord H430 God H3478 of Israel.
14 H8269 Moreover all the chief H3548 of the priests, H5971 and the people, H4603 transgressed H4604 very H7235 much H8441 after all the abominations H1471 of the heathen; H2930 and polluted H1004 the house H3068 of the Lord H6942 which he had hallowed H3389 in Jerusalem.
15 H3068 And the Lord H430 God H1 of their fathers H7971 sent H3027 to them by H4397 his messengers, H7925 rising up some time, H7971 and sending; H2550 because he had compassion H5971 on his people, H4583 and on his living place:
16 H3931 But they mocked H4397 the messengers H430 of God, H959 and despised H1697 his words, H8591 and misused H5030 his prophets, H2534 until the wrath H3068 of the Lord H5927 arose H5971 against his people, H4832 until there was no remedy.
17 H5927 Therefore he brought H4428 upon them the king H3778 of the Chaldees, H2026 who killed H970 their young men H2719 with the sword H1004 in the house H4720 of their sanctuary, H2550 and had no compassion H970 upon young man H1330 or maiden, H2205 old man, H3486 or him that stooped for age: H5414 he gave H3027 them all into his hand.
18 H3627 And all the vessels H1004 of the house H430 of God, H1419 great H6996 and small, H214 and the treasures H1004 of the house H3068 of the Lord, H214 and the treasures H4428 of the king, H8269 and of his princes; H935 all these he brought H894 to Babylon.
19 H8313 And they burnt H1004 the house H430 of God, H5422 and broke down H2346 the wall H3389 of Jerusalem, H8313 and burnt H759 all the palaces H784 there with fire, H7843 and destroyed H4261 all the good H3627 vessels there.
20 H7611 And them that had escaped H2719 from the sword H1540 carried he away H894 to Babylon; H5650 where they were servants H1121 to him and his sons H4427 until the reign H4438 of the kingdom H6539 of Persia:
21 H4390 To fulfill H1697 the word H3068 of the Lord H6310 by the mouth H3414 of Jeremiah, H776 until the land H7521 had enjoyed H7676 her sabbaths: H3117 for as long as H8074 she lay desolate H7673 she kept sabbath, H4390 to fulfill H7657 sixty and ten H8141 years.
22 H259 Now in the first H8141 year H3566 of Cyrus H4428 king H6539 of Persia, H1697 that the word H3068 of the Lord H6310 spoken by the mouth H3414 of Jeremiah H3615 might be accomplished, H3068 the Lord H5782 stirred up H7307 the spirit H3566 of Cyrus H4428 king H6539 of Persia, H5674 that he made a proclamation H4438 throughout all his kingdom, H4385 and put it also in writing, H559 saying,
23 H559 Thus says H3566 Cyrus H4428 king H6539 of Persia, H4467 All the kingdoms H776 of the earth H3068 has the Lord H430 God H8064 of heaven H5414 given H6485 me; and he has commanded H1129 me to build H1004 him an house H3389 in Jerusalem, H3063 which is in Judah. H5971 Who is there among you of all his people? H3068 The Lord H430 his God H5927 be with him, and let him go up.
