In the ninth year of his reign, Nebuchadnezzar and all his army came against Jerusalem and encamped against it. The city was besieged. There was no food for the people.
Then the city wall was broken through, and all the men of war fled at night. But the army of the Chaldeans pursued the king, and overtook him in the plains of Jericho. All his army was scattered from him.
Nebuzaradan, captain of the guard, came to Jerusalem
and burned the house of the Lord, the king's house, and all the houses of the great. They broke down the walls of Jerusalem all around, and carried away captive the rest of the people who remained in the city. But the captain left some of the poor of the land as vinedressers and farmers.
