Rebellion of Jehoiakim.

30 And his servants carried him in a chariot dead from Megiddo, and brought him to Jerusalem, and buried him in his own sepulchre. And the people of the land took Jehoahaz the son of Josiah, and anointed him, and made him king in his father's stead. 31 || Jehoahaz was twenty and three years old when he began to reign; and he reigned three months in Jerusalem. And his mother's name was Hamutal, the daughter of Jeremiah of Libnah. 32 And he did that which was evil in the sight of the Lord, according to all that his fathers had done. 33 And Pharaoh-nechoh put him in bands at Riblah in the land of Hamath, that he might not reign in Jerusalem; and put the land to a tribute of a hundred talents of silver, and a talent of gold. 34 And Pharaoh-nechoh made Eliakim the son of Josiah king in the room of Josiah his father, and turned his name to Jehoiakim, and took Jehoahaz away: and he came to Fo and died there. 35 And Jehoiakim gave the silver and s the gold to Pharaoh; but he taxed the land to give the money according to the commandment of Pharaoh: he exacted the silver and the gold of the people of the land, of every one according to his taxaition, to give it unto Pharaoh-nechoh. | 36 || Jehoiakim was twenty and five ... years old when he began to reign; and he reigned eleven years in Jerusalem." And his mother's name was Zebudah, the daughter of Pedaiah of Rumah. 37 And he did that which was evil in the sight of the Lord, according to all that his fathers had done. . - CHAP. XXIV. IN his days Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came up, and Jehoiakim became his servant three years: then he turned and rebelled against him. 2 And the Lord sent against him bands of the Chaldees, and bands of the Syrians, and bands of the Moabites, and bands of the children of Ammon, and sent them against Judah to destroy it, according to the word of the Lord, which he spake by his servants the prophets. 3 Surely at the commandment of the LoRD came this o Judah, to remove them out of his sight, for the sins of Manasseh, according to all that he did; 4 And also for the innocent blood that he shed, (for he filled Jerusalem with innocent blood,) which the Lord would not pardon. .5 T. Now the rest of the acts of Jehoiakim, and all that he did, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah?


6. So Jehoiakim slept with his fathers:

Jerusalem taken and spoiled.

and Jehoiachin his son reigned in his stead. 7 And the king of Egypt came not again any more out of his land: for the king of Babylon had takén from the riverof Egypt unto the river Euphrates all that pertained to the king ..". 8 Jehoiachin was eighteen years old when he began to reign, and he reigned in Jerusalem three months. And his mother's name was Nehushta, the daughter of Elnathan of Jerusalem. 9. And he did that which was evil in the sight of the Lord, according to all that his father had done. 10 || At that time the servants of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came up o Jerusalem, and the city was besieged. 11 And Nebuchadnezzarking of Babylon came against the city, and his servants did besiege it. 12 And Jehoiachin the king of Judah went out to the king of Babylon, he, and his mother, and his servants, and '*'. and his officers: and the king of took him in the eighth year of his reign. 13 And he carried out thence all the treasures of the house of the Lond, and the treasures of the king's house, and cut in pieces all the vessels of gold which Solomon king of Israel had made in the temple of the i. as the Lord had said. 14 And he carried away all Jerusalem, and all the princes, and all the mighty men of valour, even ten thousand captives, and all the craftsmen, and smiths: none remained, save the poorest sort of the people of the land. - - 15 And he carried away Jehoiachin to Babylon, and the king's mother, and the king's wives, and his officers, and the mighty of the land, those carried, he into captivity from Jerusalem to Babylon. 16 And all the men of might, even seven thousand, and craftsmen and smiths a thousand, all that were strong and apt for war, even them the king of Babylon brought captive to Babylon. 17 || And the king of Babylon made Mattaniah his father's brother king in his stead, and changed his name to Zedekiah. 18 Zedekiah was twenty and one years old when he began to reign, and he reigned eleven years in Jerusalem. And mother's name was Hamutal, the daughter of Jeremiah of Lilnah. -- 19 And he did that which was evil in the sight of the Load, according to all that Jehoiakim had done. 20 For through the anger of the Lond it came to pass in Jerusalem, and Judah, until he had cast them out from his presence, that Zedekiah rebelled against the king of Babylon. 330 J

CHAP. XXV. | A” it came to pass in the ninth year of his reign, in the tenth month, in the tenth dayof the month, that Nebuchadmezzar king of Babylon came, he, and all his host, against Jerusalem, and pitched against it; and they built forts against it round ahont. 2 And the city was besieged unto the eleventh year of king Zedekiah. 3 And on the ninth day of the fourth

month the famine prevailed in the city,

and there was no bread for the people of
the land. -
4 T And the city was broken up, and
all the men of war fled by night by the
way of the gate between two walls, which
is by the king’s garden: (now the Chal-
dees were against the city round about ;)
ano the plain.
5. And the army of the Chaldees pur-
sued after the king, and overtook him in
the plains of Jericho: and all his army
were scattered from him.
6 So they took the king, and brought
him up to the king of Babylon to Riblah ;
and they gave judgment upon him.
7 And they slew the sons of Zedekiah
before his eyes, and put out the eyes of
Zedekiah, and bound |. with etters of
brass, and carried him to Babylon.
8 *s And in the fifth month, on the se-
venth day of the month,(which is the nine-
teenth year of king Nebuchadnezzar king
of Babylon,)came Nebuzar-adan, captain
of the guard, a servant of the king of Ba-
bylon, unto jerusalem.
9 And he burnt the house of the Lord,
and the king's house, and all the houses
of Jerusalem, and every great man’s house
burnt he with fire.
10 Andall the army of the Chaldees, that
were with the captain of the guard, brake
down the walls of Jerusalem round about.
11 Now the rest of the people that were
left in the city, and the fugitives that fell
away to the king of Babylon, with the
remnant of the multitude, did Nebuzar-

adan the captain of the guard carry away. 12 But the captain of the guard left of the r of the land to be vine-dressers

and husbandmen.
13 And the pillars of brass that were in
the house of the Lord, and the bases, and
the brazen sea that was in the house of the
LoRD, did the Chaldees break in pieces,
and carried the brass of them to Babylon.
14 And the pots, and the shovels, and
the snuffers, and the spoons, and all the
vessels of brass wherewith they minister-
ed, took o away.
15 And, the fire-pans, and the bowls,
and such things as were of gold, in gold,
and of silver, in silver, the captain o
guard took away.

16 The two pillars, one sea, and the bases which Solomon had made for the house.of the Lord ; the brass of all these vessels was without weight. 17 The height of the one pillar was eighteen cubits, and the chapiter upon it was brass: and the height of the chapiter three cubits; and the wreathen work, and pomegranates upon the chapter round about, all of brass: and like unto these had the second pillar with wreathen work. 18 "I And the captain of the guard took Seraiah the chief priest, and Zephaniah the second priest, and the three keepers of the door: 19 And out of the city he took an officer that was set over the men of war, and five men of them that were in the king's pre: sence, which were sound in the city, and the principal scribe of the host, which mustered the people of the land, and threescore men of the people of the land that were found in the city: 20 And Nebuzar-adan captain of the guard took these, and brought them to the king of Babylon to Riblah : 21 And the king of Babylon smote them, and slew them at Ribiah in the land of Hamath. So Judah was carried away out of their land. 22 || And as for the people that remained in the land of i. whom Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon had left, even over them he made Gedaliah the son of Ahikam, the son of Shaphan, ruler. 23 And when all the captains of the armics, they and their men, heard that the king of Babylon had made Gedaliah goernor, there came to Gedaliah to Mizpah, even Ishmael the son of Nethaniah, and Johanan the son of Careah, and Seraiah the son of Tanhumeth the Netophathite, and Jaazaniah the son of a Maachathite, they and their men. " 24 '. Gedaliah sware to them, and to their men, and said unto them, Fear not to be the servants of the Chaldees: dwell in the land, and serve the king of Babylon, and it shall be well, with you. 25 But it came to pass in the seventh month, that Ishmael the son of Nethaniah, theson of Elishama, of theseed royal, came, and ten men with him, and smote Gedaliab, that he died, and the Jews and the Chaldees that were with him at Mizpah. 26 And all the people, both small and great, and the captains of the armies, arose; and came to Egypt: for they were afraid of the Chaldees. 27 | And it came to pass in the seven and thirtieth year of the captivity of Jehoiachin king of Judah, in the twelfth month, on the seven and twentieth day of the month, that Evil-merodach king of Babylon in the yo * he began to reign ~~
