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 Joahaz H6242 was twenty - H7969 three H8141 years H1121 old H4427 when he began to reign; H4427 and he reigned H7969 three H2320 months H3389 in Jerusalem.
3 H4428 The king H4714 of Egypt H5493 deposed H3389 him at Jerusalem, H6064 and fined H776 the land H3967 one hundred H3603 talents H3701 of silver H3603 and a talent H2091 of gold.
4 H4428 The king H4714 of Egypt H471 made Eliakim H251 his brother H4428 king H3063 over Judah H3389 and Jerusalem, H5437 and changed H8034 his name H3079 to Jehoiakim. H5224 Neco H3947 took H3099 Joahaz H251 his brother, H3947 and carried H4714 him to Egypt.
5 H3079 Jehoiakim H6242 was twenty - H2568 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 Yahweh 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 Yahweh 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 Yahweh.
10 H8666 At the return H8141 of the year H4428 king H5019 Nebuchadnezzar H7971 sent, H935 and brought H894 him to Babylon, H2532 with the goodly H3627 vessels H1004 of the house H3068 of Yahweh, H6667 and made Zedekiah H251 his brother H4427 king H3063 over Judah H3389 and Jerusalem.
11 H6667 Zedekiah H6242 was twenty - H259 one H8141 years H1121 old H4427 when he began to reign; H4427 and he reigned H259 eleven H8141 years H3389 in Jerusalem:
12 H6213 and he did H7451 that which was evil H5869 in the sight H3068 of Yahweh H430 his God; H3665 he didn't humble H6440 himself before H3414 Jeremiah H5030 the prophet H6310 speaking from the mouth H3068 of Yahweh.
13 H4775 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 against turning H3068 to Yahweh, H430 the God H3478 of Israel.
14 H8269 Moreover all the chiefs H3548 of the priests, H5971 and the people, H4603 trespassed H4604 very H7235 greatly H8441 after all the abominations H1471 of the nations; H2930 and they polluted H1004 the house H3068 of Yahweh H6942 which he had made holy H3389 in Jerusalem.
15 H3068 Yahweh, H430 the God H1 of their fathers, H7971 sent H3027 to them by H4397 his messengers, H7925 rising up early H7971 and sending, H2550 because he had compassion H5971 on his people, H4583 and on his dwelling place:
16 H3931 but they mocked H4397 the messengers H430 of God, H959 and despised H1697 his words, H8591 and scoffed H5030 at his prophets, H2534 until the wrath H3068 of Yahweh H5927 arose H5971 against his people, H4832 until there was no remedy.
17 H5927 Therefore he brought H4428 on them the king H3778 of the Chaldeans, 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 on young man H1330 or virgin, H2205 old man H3486 or gray-headed: H5414 he gave H3027 them all into his hand.
18 H3627 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 Yahweh, H214 and the treasures H4428 of the king, H8269 and of his princes, H935 all these he brought H894 to Babylon.
19 H8313 They burnt H1004 the house H430 of God, H5422 and broke down H2346 the wall H3389 of Jerusalem, H8313 and burnt H759 all its palaces H784 with fire, H7843 and destroyed H4261 all the goodly H3627 vessels of it.
20 H7611 He carried those who had escaped H2719 from the sword H1540 away H894 to Babylon; H5650 and 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 Yahweh H6310 by the mouth H3414 of Jeremiah, H776 until the land H7521 had enjoyed H7676 its Sabbaths. H3117 As H8074 long as it lay desolate H7673 it kept Sabbath, H4390 to fulfill H7657 seventy H8141 years.
22 H259 Now in the first H8141 year H3566 of Cyrus H4428 king H6539 of Persia, H1697 that the word H3068 of Yahweh H6310 by the mouth H3414 of Jeremiah H3615 might be accomplished, H3068 Yahweh H5782 stirred up H7307 the spirit H3566 of Cyrus H4428 king H6539 of Persia, H5674 so 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, H3068 ‘Yahweh, H430 the God H8064 of heaven, H5414 has given H4467 all the kingdoms H776 of the earth H6485 to me; and he has commanded H1129 me to build H1004 him a house H3389 in Jerusalem, H3063 which is in Judah. H5971 Whoever there is among you of all his people, H3068 Yahweh H430 his God H5927 be with him, and let him go up.'"
