MSTC(i) 2 And the city continued besieged until the eleventh year of king Zedekiah. 3 And the ninth day of the fourth month of that year, there was so great hunger in the city, that there was no sustenance for the people of the land. 4 And thereto the city was broken up: wherefore all the men of arms fled by night, by a way through a gate, between two walls hard on the king's garden: the Chaldeans lying about the city. And the king went straight toward the desert. 5 And the host of the Chaldeans followed after him, and took him in the desert of Jericho, all his army being scattered away from him. 6 And when they had taken him, they brought him to Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon to Riblah, where they reasoned with him. 7 And they slew the sons of Zedekiah before his eyes, and put out the eyes of Zedekiah, and fettered him, and carried him to Babylon.
