219 - Second and third deportations: 598 BC

Kathleen's thoughts

2 Kings 24: 2-20
2 Chronicles 36: 6-10
Jeremiah 22: 1-9, 24-30, 37: 1-2,52: 1-2, 21: 1-14,
Ester 2:6

Jehoiakim's enemies. The Lord sent the Chaldean, Aramean, Moabite, and the Ammonite to raid against Jehoiakim. He sent them against Judah to destroy it. according to the word of the Lord He had spoken through His servants the prophets.

Second deportation 3,023 captives These are the men Nebuchadnezzar deported in the seventh year. He also took some of the utensils from the Lord's temple and placed them in his.

Jehoiakim's death He rested with his fathers and his son Jeholachim became king in his place.

Jehoiachin He was 18 years old when he became king he reigned three months and10 days in Jerusalem He did what was evil in the Lord's sight.

His captivity foretold Record this man as childless, a man who will not be successful in his lifetime. None of his descendants will succeed in sitting on the throne of David or ruling again in Judah.

Third deportation 10,000 captives Jehoiachin king of Judah, along with his mother, his servants, his commanders and his officials surrendered to the king of Babylon. So the king of Babylon took him captive in the eight year of his reign. He also carried off all the treasuries of the Lords temple and the treasures of the king's palace. and he cut into pieces all the gold articles that Solomon king of Israel had made for the Lord's sanctuary, just as God had predicted.
Then he made Jehoiachin's brother Zedekiah king over Judah and Jerusalem. This is also found in Ester 2:6

Zedekiah Then the king of Babylon made Mattaniah, Jehoiahchin's uncle, king in his place and changed his name to Zedekiah. He was 21 years old when he became king; he reigned 11 years in Jerusalem. His mother's name was Hamutal daughter of Jeremiah; she was from Libnah. Zedekaih did what was evil in the Lord's sight just as Jehoiakim had done.

Jeremiah 37: 1-2 Zedekiah son of Josiah reigned as king in the land of Judah in place of Jehoiachin son of Jehoiakim, for Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon made him king. He and his officers and the people of the land did not obey the words of the Lord that He spoke through Jeremiah the prophet.

Israel's captivity foretold Many nations will pass by this city and ask one another, Why did the Lord do such a thing to the great city? They will answer; because they abandoned the covenant of the Lord their God and worshiped and served other gods.
