1 H6667 Zedekiah H259 was one H6242 and twenty H8141 years H1121 old H4427 when he began to reign [H8800] H4427 , and he reigned [H8804] H259 eleven H6240 H8141 years H3389 in Jerusalem H517 . And his mother's H8034 name H2537 was Hamutal H1323 the daughter H3414 of Jeremiah H3841 of Libnah.
2 H6213 And he did [H8799] H7451 that which was evil H5869 in the eyes H3068 of the LORD H3079 , according to all that Jehoiakim H6213 had done [H8804] .
3 H5921 For through H639 the anger H3068 of the LORD H3389 it came to pass in Jerusalem H3063 and Judah H7993 , till he had cast them out [H8687] H6440 from his presence H6667 , that Zedekiah H4775 rebelled [H8799] H4428 against the king H894 of Babylon.
4 H8671 And it came to pass in the ninth H8141 year H4427 of his reign [H8800] H6224 , in the tenth H2320 month H6218 , in the tenth H2320 day of the month H5019 , that Nebuchadrezzar H4428 king H894 of Babylon H935 came [H8804] H2428 , he and all his army H3389 , against Jerusalem H2583 , and pitched [H8799] H1129 against it, and built [H8799] H1785 forts H5439 against it round about.
5 H935 So [H8799] H5892 the city H4692 was besieged H6249 unto the eleventh H6240 H8141 year H4428 of king H6667 Zedekiah.
6 H7243 And in the fourth H2320 month H8672 , in the ninth H2320 day of the month H7458 , the famine H2388 was sore [H8799] H5892 in the city H3899 , so that there was no bread H5971 for the people H776 of the land.
7 H5892 Then the city H1234 was broken up [H8735] H582 , and all the men H4421 of war H1272 fled [H8799] H3318 , and went forth [H8799] H5892 out of the city H3915 by night H1870 by the way H8179 of the gate H2346 between the two walls H4428 , which was by the king's H1588 garden H3778 ; (now the Chaldeans H5892 were by the city H5439 round about H3212 :) and they went [H8799] H1870 by the way H6160 of the plain.
8 H2428 But the army H3778 of the Chaldeans H7291 pursued [H8799] H310 after H4428 the king H5381 , and overtook [H8686] H6667 Zedekiah H6160 in the plains H3405 of Jericho H2428 ; and all his army H6327 was scattered [H8738] from him.
9 H8610 Then they took [H8799] H4428 the king H5927 , and carried him up [H8686] H4428 unto the king H894 of Babylon H7247 to Riblah H776 in the land H2574 of Hamath H1696 ; where he gave [H8762] H4941 judgment upon him.
10 H4428 And the king H894 of Babylon H7819 slew [H8799] H1121 the sons H6667 of Zedekiah H5869 before his eyes H7819 : he slew [H8804] H8269 also all the princes H3063 of Judah H7247 in Riblah.
