1 Tulit ergo populus terrae Ioachaz filium Iosiae et con stituit regem pro patre suo in Ierusalem.
2 Viginti trium annorum erat Ioachaz, cum regnare coepisset, et tribus mensibus regnavit in Ierusalem.
3 Amovit autem eum rex Aegypti, cum venisset Ierusalem, et condemnavit terram centum talentis argenti et talento auri.
4 Constituitque regem pro eo Eliachim fratrem eius super Iudam et Ierusalem et vertit nomen eius Ioachim. Ipsum vero Ioachaz tulit secum et adduxit in Aegyptum.
5 Viginti quinque annorum erat Ioachim, cum regnare coepisset, et undecim annis regnavit in Ierusalem; fecitque malum coram Domino Deo suo.
6 Contra hunc ascendit Nabuchodonosor rex Chaldaeorum et vinctum catenis duxit in Babylonem,
7 ad quam et ex vasis Domini transtulit et posuit ea in templo suo.
8 Reliqua autem gestorum Ioachim et abominationum eius, quas operatus est, et quae inventa sunt contra eum, continentur in libro regum Israel et Iudae. Regnavitque autem Ioachin filius eius pro eo.
9 Decem et octo annorum erat Ioachin, cum regnare coepisset, et tribus mensibus ac decem diebus regnavit in Ierusalem; fecitque malum in conspectu Domini.
10 Cumque anni circulus volveretur, misit Nabuchodonosor rex, qui adduxerunt eum in Babylonem, asportatis simul pretiosissimis vasis domus Domini; regem vero constituit Sedeciam fratrem eius super Iudam et Ierusalem.
11 Viginti et unius anni erat Sedecias, cum regnare coepisset, et undecim annis regnavit in Ierusalem.
12 Fecitque malum in oculis Domini Dei sui nec humiliavit se coram Ieremia propheta loquente ad se ex ore Domini.
13 Contra regem quoque Nabuchodonosor rebellavit, qui adiuraverat eum per Deum, et induravit cervicem suam et cor, ut non reverteretur ad Dominum, Deum Israel.
14 Sed et universi principes sacerdotum et populus multiplicaverunt praevaricationes suas iuxta universas abominationes gentium et polluerunt domum Domini, quam sanctificaverat in Ierusalem.
15 Mittebat autem Dominus, Deus patrum suorum, ad illos per manum nuntiorum suorum de nocte consurgens et cotidie commonens, eo quod parceret populo et habitaculo suo.
16 At illi subsannabant nuntios Dei et parvipendebant sermones eius illudebantque prophetis, donec ascenderet furor Domini in populum eius, et esset nulla curatio.
17 Adduxit enim super eos regem Chaldaeorum et interfecit iuvenes eorum gladio in domo sanctuarii sui; non est misertus adulescentis et virginis et senis nec decrepiti quidem, sed omnes tradidit in manibus eius.
18 Universaque vasa domus Dei tam maiora quam minora et thesauros templi et regis et principum transtulit in Babylonem.
19 Incenderunt hostes domum Dei destruxeruntque murum Ierusalem, universa palatia combusserunt et, quidquid pretiosum fuerat, demoliti sunt.
20 Si quis evaserat gladium, ductus in Babylonem servivit regi et filiis eius, donec imperaret rex Persarum,
21 ut compleretur sermo Domini ex ore Ieremiae: donec terra acciperet sabbata sua, cunctis diebus devastationis egit sabbatum, usque dum complerentur septuaginta anni.
22 Anno autem primo Cyri regis Persarum ad explendum sermonem Domini, quem locutus fuerat per os Ieremiae, suscitavit Dominus spiritum Cyri regis Persarum, qui iussit praedicari in universo regno suo etiam per scripturam dicens:
36:23" Haec dicit Cyrus rex Persarum: Omnia regna terrae dedit mihi Dominus, Deus caeli, et ipse praecepit mihi, ut aedificarem ei domum in Ierusalem, quae est in Iudaea. Quis ex vobis est de omni populo eius? Sit Dominus Deus suus cum eo, et ascendat".
King James Version
1 Then the people of the land took Jehoahaz the son of Josiah, and made him king in his father's stead in Jerusalem.
2 Jehoahaz was twenty and three years old when he began to reign, and he reigned three months in Jerusalem.
3 And the king of Egypt put him down at Jerusalem, and condemned the land in an hundred talents of silver and a talent of gold.
4 And 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.
6 Against him came up Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, and bound him in fetters, to carry him to Babylon.
7 Nebuchadnezzar also carried of the vessels of the house of the LORD to Babylon, and put them in his temple at Babylon.
8 Now 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.
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.
10 And 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.
11 ¶ Zedekiah was one and twenty years old when he began to reign, and reigned eleven years in Jerusalem.
12 And 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.
13 And 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.
15 And 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:
16 But 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.
17 Therefore 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.
18 And 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.
19 And 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.
20 And 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:
21 To 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,
23 Thus 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.
