耶路撒冷沦陷

13尼布甲尼撒曾让他奉上帝的名起誓,他却背叛了尼布甲尼撒。他顽固不化,不肯归向以色列的上帝耶和华。 14所有祭司长和民众也都仿效外族人的一切可憎行径,犯了大罪,玷污了耶和华在耶路撒冷使之圣洁的殿。 15他们祖先的上帝耶和华因为怜爱祂的子民和祂的居所,就不断派使者来劝告他们。 16他们却嘲弄耶和华上帝的使者,藐视祂的话,嘲笑祂的先知,以致祂的愤怒临到祂的子民身上,无可挽救。

17耶和华使迦勒底人的王起兵攻打他们,在他们的圣殿里用刀击杀他们的壮丁,毫不怜悯少男少女、老人和年高者。耶和华把他们全部交在他的手中。 18上帝殿里的大小器皿,以及耶和华殿里、王宫里和众官员的所有珍宝,都被他带到巴比伦去了。 19迦勒底人焚烧上帝的殿,拆毁耶路撒冷的城墙,并且焚烧所有的宫殿,毁坏其中所有珍贵的器皿。 20没有被杀戮的人都被掳往巴比伦,做他和他子孙的奴隶,直到波斯帝国的时代。 21这就应验了耶和华借耶利米之口所说的话:这片土地享受了安息,它在荒凉中守安息,直到满了七十年。

塞鲁士王准许被掳之民返国

22波斯塞鲁士元年,耶和华为了应验祂借耶利米所说的话,就感动波斯塞鲁士,使他下诏通告全国: 23波斯塞鲁士如此说,‘天上的上帝耶和华已把天下万国都赐给我,祂吩咐我在犹大耶路撒冷为祂建造殿宇。你们当中凡属耶和华的子民,都可以去那里。愿你们的上帝耶和华与你们同在!’”

King James Version

2 Chronicles 36:1-23

1Then the people of the land took Jehoahaz the son of Josiah, and made him king in his father’s stead in Jerusalem. 2Jehoahaz was twenty and three years old when he began to reign, and he reigned three months in Jerusalem. 3And the king of Egypt put him down at Jerusalem, and condemned the land in an hundred talents of silver and a talent of gold.36.3 put…: Heb. removed him 4And the king of Egypt made Eliakim his brother king over Judah and Jerusalem, and turned his name to Jehoiakim. And Necho took Jehoahaz his brother, and carried him to Egypt.

5¶ Jehoiakim was twenty and five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned eleven years in Jerusalem: and he did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD his God. 6Against him came up Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, and bound him in fetters, to carry him to Babylon.36.6 fetters: or, chains 7Nebuchadnezzar also carried of the vessels of the house of the LORD to Babylon, and put them in his temple at Babylon. 8Now the rest of the acts of Jehoiakim, and his abominations which he did, and that which was found in him, behold, they are written in the book of the kings of Israel and Judah: and Jehoiachin his son reigned in his stead.36.8 Jehoiachin: also called, Jeconiah, or, Coniah

9¶ Jehoiachin was eight years old when he began to reign, and he reigned three months and ten days in Jerusalem: and he did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD. 10And when the year was expired, king Nebuchadnezzar sent, and brought him to Babylon, with the goodly vessels of the house of the LORD, and made Zedekiah his brother king over Judah and Jerusalem.36.10 when…: Heb. at the return of the year36.10 goodly…: Heb. vessels of desire36.10 Zedekiah…: or, Mattaniah, his father’s brother

11¶ Zedekiah was one and twenty years old when he began to reign, and reigned eleven years in Jerusalem. 12And he did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD his God, and humbled not himself before Jeremiah the prophet speaking from the mouth of the LORD. 13And he also rebelled against king Nebuchadnezzar, who had made him swear by God: but he stiffened his neck, and hardened his heart from turning unto the LORD God of Israel.

14¶ Moreover all the chief of the priests, and the people, transgressed very much after all the abominations of the heathen; and polluted the house of the LORD which he had hallowed in Jerusalem. 15And the LORD God of their fathers sent to them by his messengers, rising up betimes, and sending; because he had compassion on his people, and on his dwelling place:36.15 by: Heb. by the hand of36.15 betimes: that is, continually and carefully 16But they mocked the messengers of God, and despised his words, and misused his prophets, until the wrath of the LORD arose against his people, till there was no remedy.36.16 remedy: Heb. healing 17Therefore he brought upon them the king of the Chaldees, who slew their young men with the sword in the house of their sanctuary, and had no compassion upon young man or maiden, old man, or him that stooped for age: he gave them all into his hand. 18And all the vessels of the house of God, great and small, and the treasures of the house of the LORD, and the treasures of the king, and of his princes; all these he brought to Babylon. 19And they burnt the house of God, and brake down the wall of Jerusalem, and burnt all the palaces thereof with fire, and destroyed all the goodly vessels thereof. 20And them that had escaped from the sword carried he away to Babylon; where they were servants to him and his sons until the reign of the kingdom of Persia:36.20 them…: Heb. the remainder from the sword 21To fulfil the word of the LORD by the mouth of Jeremiah, until the land had enjoyed her sabbaths: for as long as she lay desolate she kept sabbath, to fulfil threescore and ten years.

22¶ Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of the LORD spoken by the mouth of Jeremiah might be accomplished, the LORD stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom, and put it also in writing, saying, 23Thus saith Cyrus king of Persia, All the kingdoms of the earth hath the LORD God of heaven given me; and he hath charged me to build him an house in Jerusalem, which is in Judah. Who is there among you of all his people? The LORD his God be with him, and let him go up.
