VIN(i) 2 So the city was besieged until the eleventh year of king Zedekiah. 3 On the ninth day of the [fourth] month the famine was sore in the city, so that there was no bread for the people of the land 4 The city was breached, and the entire army left during the night through the gate that stood between the two walls beside the royal garden, even though the Chaldeans had surrounded the city. They escaped by way of the Arabah, 5 But the Chaldean army pursued the king, and overtook him in the plains of Jericho; and all his army was scattered from him. 6 So they captured the king and brought him up to the king of Babylon at Riblah, and they passed sentence on him. 7 They put the sons of Zedekiah to death before his eyes. Then they put out his eyes, chained him with iron bands and took him to Babylon.
