Jerusalem is besieged. Zedekiah taken, his sons slain, his eyes put out. Nebuzar-adan defaceth the city, carrieth the remnant, except a few poor labourers, into captivity, spoileth and carrieth away the treasures. The nobles are slain at Riblah. Gedaliah, who was set over them that remained, being slain, the rest flee into Egypt. Evil-merodach advanceth Jehoiachin in his court.
