Jerusalem Captured and Burned

2 Chronicles 36

17 t Therefore He brought against them the king of the Chaldeans, who u killed their young men with the sword in the house of their sanctuary, and had no compassion on young man or virgin, on the aged or the weak; He gave them all into his hand. 18 v And all the articles from the house of God, great and small, the treasures of the house of the LORD, and the treasures of the king and of his leaders, all these he took to Babylon. 19 w Then they burned the house of God, broke down the wall of Jerusalem, burned all its palaces with fire, and destroyed all its precious possessions. 20 And x those who escaped from the sword he carried away to Babylon, y where they became servants to him and his sons until the rule of the kingdom of Persia, 21 to fulfill the word of the LORD by the mouth of z Jeremiah, until the land a had enjoyed her Sabbaths. As long as she lay desolate b she kept Sabbath, to fulfill seventy years.
