A recapitulation of the reign of Sedecias, and the destruction of Jerusalem. The number of the captives.
1 Sedecias was one and twenty years old when he began to reign: and he reigned eleven years in Jerusalem: and the name of his mother was Amital, the daughter of Jeremias of Lobna.
Filius viginti et unius anni erat Sedecias cum regnare coepisset, et undecim annis regnavit in Jerusalem. Et nomen matris ejus Amital, filia Jeremiae, de Lobna.
2 And he did that which was evil in the eyes of the Lord, according to all that Joakim had done.
Et fecit malum in oculis Domini, juxta omnia quae fecerat Joakim,
3 For the wrath of the Lord was against Jerusalem, and against Juda, till he cast them out from his presence: and Sedecias revolted from the king of Babylon.
quoniam furor Domini erat in Jerusalem et in Juda, usquequo projiceret eos a facie sua : et recessit Sedecias a rege Babylonis.
4 And it came to pass in the ninth year of his reign, in the tenth month, the tenth day of the month, that Nabuchodonosor the king of Babylon came, he and all his army, against Jerusalem, and they besieged it, and built forts against it round about.
Factum est autem in anno nono regni ejus, in mense decimo, decima mensis, venit Nabuchodonosor rex Babylonis, ipse et omnis exercitus ejus, adversus Jerusalem : et obsederunt eam, et aedificaverunt contra eam munitiones in circuitu.
5 And the city was besieged until the eleventh year of king Sedecias.
Et fuit civitas obsessa usque ad undecimum annum regis Sedeciae.
6 And in the fourth month, the ninth day of the month, a famine overpowered the city: and there was no food for the people of the land.
Mense autem quarto, nona mensis, obtinuit fames civitatem, et non erant alimenta populo terrae.
7 And the city was broken up, and the men of war fled, and went out of the city in the night by the way of the gate that is between the two walls, and leadeth to the king's garden, (the Chaldeans besieging the city round about,) and they went by the way that leadeth to the wilderness.
Et dirupta est civitas, et omnes viri bellatores ejus fugerunt, exieruntque de civitate nocte, per viam portae quae est inter duos muros, et ducit ad hortum regis, Chaldaeis obsidentibus urbem in gyro, et abierunt per viam quae ducit in eremum.
8 But the army of the Chaldeans pursued after the king: and they overtook Sedecias in the desert which is near Jericho: and all his companions were scattered from him.
Persecutus est autem Chadaeorum exercitus regem, et apprehenderunt Sedeciam in deserto quod est juxta Jericho : et omnis comitatus ejus diffugit ab eo.
9 And when they had taken the king, they carried him to the king of Babylon to Reblatha, which is in the land of Emath: and he gave judgment upon him.
Cumque comprehendissent regem, adduxerunt eum ad regem Babylonis in Reblatha, quae est in terra Emath, et locutus est ad eum judicia.
10 And the king of Babylon slew the sons of Sedecias before his eyes: and he slew all the princes of Juda in Reblatha.
Et jugulavit rex Babylonis filios Sedeciae in oculis ejus, sed et omnes principes Juda occidit in Reblatha.
11 And he put out the eyes of Sedecias, and bound him with fetters, and the king of Babylon brought him into Babylon, and he put him in prison till the day of his death.
Et oculos Sedeciae eruit, et vinxit eum compedibus, et adduxit eum rex Babylonis in Babylonem, et posuit eum in domo carceris usque ad diem mortis ejus.
12 And in the fifth month, the tenth day of the month, the same is the nineteenth year of Nabuchodonosor, king of Babylon, came Nabuzardan the general of the army, who stood before the king of Babylon in Jerusalem.
In mense autem quinto, decima mensis, ipse est annus nonusdecimus Nabuchodonosor regis Babylonis, venit Nabuzardan, princeps militiae, qui stabat coram rege Babylonis, in Jerusalem,
13 And he burnt the house of the Lord, and the king's house, and all the houses of Jerusalem, and every great house he burnt with fire.
et incendit domum Domini, et domum regis, et omnes domos Jerusalem, et omnem domum magnam igni combussit :
14 And all the army of the Chaldeans that were with the general broke down all the wall of Jerusalem round about.
et totum murum Jerusalem per circuitum destruxit cunctus exercitus Chaldaeorum, qui erat cum magistro militiae.
15 But Nabuzardan the general carried away captives some of the poor people, and of the rest of the common sort who remained in the city, and of the fugitives that were fled over to the king of Babylon, and the rest of the multitude.
De pauperibus autem populi et de reliquo vulgo, quod remanserat in civitate, et de perfugis qui transfugerant ad regem Babylonis, et ceteros de multitudine transtulit Nabuzardan, princeps militiae.
16 But of the poor of the land, Nabuzardan the general left some for vinedressers, and for husbandmen.
De pauperibus vero terrae reliquit Nabuzardan, princeps militiae, vinitores et agricolas.
17 The Chaldeans also broke in pieces the brazen pillars that were in the house of the Lord, and the bases, and the sea of brass that was in the house of the Lord: and they carried all the brass of them to Babylon.
Columnas quoque aereas quae erant in domo Domini, et bases, et mare aeneum, quod erat in domo Domini, confregerunt Chaldaei, et tulerunt omne aes eorum in Babylonem,
18 And they took the caldrons, and the fleshhooks, and the psalteries, and the bowls, and the little mortars, and all the brazen vessels that had been used in the ministry: and
et lebetes, et creagras, et psalteria, et phialas, et mortariola, et omnia vasa aerea quae in ministerio fuerant, tulerunt :
19 The general took away the pitchers, and the censers, and the pots, and the basins, and the candlesticks, and the mortars, and the cups: as many as were of gold, in gold: and as many as were of silver, in silver:
et hydrias, et thymiamateria, et urceos, et pelves, et candelabra, et mortaria, et cyathos, quotquot aurea, aurea, et quotquot argentea, argentea, tulit magister militiae :
20 And the two pillars, and one sea, and twelve oxen of brass that were under the bases, which king Solomon had made in the house of the Lord: there was no weight of the brass of all these vessels.
et columnas duas, et mare unum, et vitulos duodecim aereos qui erant sub basibus quas fecerat rex Salomon in domo Domini. Non erat pondus aeris omnium horum vasorum.
21 And concerning the pillars, one pillar was eighteen cubits high: and a cord of twelve cubits compassed it about: but the thickness thereof was four fingers, and it was hollow within.
De columnis autem decem et octo cubiti altitudinis erant in columna una, et funiculus duodecim cubitorum circuibat eam : porro grossitudo ejus quatuor digitorum, et intrinsecus cava erat.
22 And chapiters of brass were upon both: and the height of one chapiter was five cubits: and network, and pomegranates were upon the chapiters round about, all of brass. The same of the second pillar, and the pomegranates.
Et capitella super utramque aerea : altitudo capitelli unius quinque cubitorum, et retiacula et malogranata super coronam in circuitu, omnia aerea : similiter columnae secundae, et malogranata.
23 And there were ninety-six pomegranates hanging down: and the pomegranates being a hundred in all, were compassed with network.
Et fuerunt malogranata nonaginta sex dependentia : et omnia malogranata centum, retiaculis circumdabantur.
24 And the general took Saraias the chief priest, and Sophonias the second priest, and the three keepers of the entry.
Et tulit magister militiae Saraiam sacerdotem primum, et Sophoniam sacerdotem secundum, et tres custodes vestibuli :
25 He also took out of the city one eunuch that was chief over the men of war: and seven men of them that were near the king's person, that were found in the city: and a scribe, an officer of the army who exercised the young soldiers: and threescore men of the people of the land, that were found in the midst of the city.
et de civitate tulit eunuchum unum, qui erat praepositus super viros bellatores : et septem viros de his qui videbant faciem regis, qui inventi sunt in civitate : et scribam principem militum, qui probabat tyrones : et sexaginta viros de populo terrae, qui inventi sunt in medio civitatis.
26 And Nabuzardan the general took them, and brought them to the king of Babylon, to Reblatha.
Tulit autem eos Nabuzardan magister militiae : et duxit eos ad regem Babylonis in Reblatha :
27 And the king of Babylon struck them, and put them to death in Reblatha, in the land of Emath: and Juda was carried away captive out of his land.
et percussit eos rex Babylonis, et interfecit eos in Reblatha in terra Emath : et translatus est Juda de terra sua.
28 This is the people whom Nabuchodonosor carried away captive: in the seventh year, three thousand and twenty-three Jews.
Iste est populus quem transtulit Nabuchodonosor : in anno septimo, Judaeos tria millia et viginti tres :
29 In the eighteenth year of Nabuchodonosor, eight hundred and thirty-two souls from Jerusalem.
in anno octavodecimo Nabuchodonosor, de Jerusalem animas octingentas triginta duas :
30 In the three and twentieth year of Nabuchodonosor, Nabuzardan the general carried away of the Jews seven hundred and forty-five souls. So all the souls were four thousand six hundred.
in anno vigesimo tertio Nabuchodonosor, transtulit Nabuzardan magister militiae animas Judaeorum septingentas quadraginta quinque. Omnes ergo animae, quatuor millia sexcentae.
31 And it came to pass in the seven and thirtieth year of the captivity of Joachin king of Juda, in the twelfth month, the five and twentieth day of the month, that Evilmerodach king of Babylon, in the first year of his reign, lifted up the head of Joachin king of Juda, and brought him forth out of prison.
Et factum est in trigesimo septimo anno transmigrationis Joachin regis Juda, duodecimo mense, vigesima quinta mensis, elevavit Evilmerodach rex Babylonis, ipso anno regni sui, caput Joachin regis Juda, et eduxit eum de domo carceris.
32 And he spoke kindly to him, and he set his throne above the thrones of the kings that were with him in Babylon.
Et locutus est cum eo bona, et posuit thronum ejus super thronos regum qui erant post se in Babylone.
33 And he changed his prison garments, and he ate bread before him always all the days of his life.
Et mutavit vestimenta carceris ejus, et comedebat panem coram eo semper cunctis diebus vitae suae.
34 And for his diet a continual provision was allowed him by the king of Babylon, every day a portion, until the day of his death, all the days of his life.
Et cibaria ejus, cibaria perpetua dabantur ei a rege Babylonis, statuta per singulos dies, usque ad diem mortis suae, cunctis diebus vitae ejus.
