235 - The Lord's temple looted

Kathleen's thoughts

2 Kings 25: 11-21
2 Chronicles 36: 18,20-21
Jeremiah 39: 9-10, 52: 15-16, 27,
Psalm 94: 1-23, 74: 1-23, 79: 1-13

Fifth deportation; the poor left behind
God the judge of all
The Temple looted
Priests deported
Prayer for Nation's deliverance
Important men killed.

In this reading was a very sad day when the Lords temple is destroyed
Now the Chaldeans broke into pieces the bronze pillars of the Lord's temple, the water carts, and the bronze reservoir, which were in the Lords temple, and carried the bronze to Babylon. They also took the pots, the shovels the wick trimmers, the dishes, and all the bronze articles used in temple service. The commander of the guards took away the fire pans and the sprinkling basins - what ever was gold or silver.
In 2 Chronicles 36:18 He took everything to Babylon all the articles of God's temple, large and small the treasures of the Lord's temple, and the treasures of the king and his officials.
Then the commander of the guards also took away Seraiah the chief priest, Zephaniah the priest of the second rand, and the three doorkeepers.

Jeremiah 52: 25-27 
From the city he took a court official who had been appointed over the warriors; seven trusted royal aides found in the city; the secretary of the commander of the army, who enlisted the people of the land for military duty; and 60 men from the common people who were found within the city.
Nebuzaradan, the commander of the guards, took them and brought them to the king of Babylon at Riblah. The king of Babylon put them to death at Riblah in the land of Hamath.
Thus Judah went into exile from its land.
