And the king took the way to Araba. 5 But the army of the Chaldeans pursued him and overtook him at Araboth of Jericho. When all his army was dispersed from about him, 6 they took the king and brought him to the king of Babylon at Reblatha, and he pronounced sentence against him. 7 And when he had slain his sons before his eyes, he put out the eyes of Sedekias and bound him with chains, and carried him to Babylon.
