Day 222 of 365 – August 10 - Chronological Bible

2 Kings 24:6b,8 (2 Chronicles 36:8b,9a) (597 B.C.)

Jehoiachin Becomes King

Jerusalem

And Jehoiachin his son reigned in his place.


Jehoiachin was eighteen years old when he became king, and he reigned three months in Jerusalem. His mother’s name was Nehushta the daughter of Elnathan of Jerusalem.


2 Kings 24:9

And he did what was evil in the sight of the Lord, according to all that his father had done.


Jeremiah 22:24-30

Jeremiah Prophecy

“As I live, declares the Lord, though Coniah the son of Jehoiakim, king of Judah, were the signet ring on my right hand, yet I would tear you off and give you into the hand of those who seek your life, into the hand of those of whom you are afraid, even into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon and into the hand of the Chaldeans. I will hurl you and the mother who bore you into another country, where you were not born, and there you shall die. But to the land to which they will long to return, there they shall not return.”


Is this man Coniah a despised, broken pot,

a vessel no one cares for?

Why are he and his children hurled

and cast into a land that they do not know?

O land, land, land,

hear the word of the Lord!


Thus says the Lord:

“Write this man down as childless,

a man who shall not succeed in his days,

for none of his offspring shall succeed

in sitting on the throne of David

and ruling again in Judah.”


2 Kings 24:10-12 2 Chronicles 36:10a (Daniel 1:1) (597 B.C.)

Jehoiachin Gave Himself to the King of Babylon

The king of Babylon took him prisoner in the eighth year of his reign. Ch In the spring of the year King Nebuchadnezzar sent and brought him to Babylon....


2 Kings 24:13-16 Daniel 1:2

Jerusalem Captured

Kgs and carried off all the treasures of the house of the Lord and the treasures of the king’s house, and cut in pieces all the vessels of gold in the temple of the Lord, which Solomon king of Israel had made, as the Lord had foretold. Dn And the Lord gave Jehoiakim king of Judah into his hand, with some of the vessels of the house of God. And he brought them to the land of Shinar, to the house of his god, and placed the vessels in the treasury of his god. Kgs He carried away all Jerusalem and all the officials and all the mighty men of valor, 10,000 captives, and all the craftsmen and the smiths. None remained, except the poorest people of the land.


And he carried away Jehoiachin to Babylon. The king’s mother, the king’s wives, his officials, and the chief men of the land he took into captivity from Jerusalem to Babylon. And the king of Babylon brought captive to Babylon all the men of valor, 7,000, and the craftsmen and the metal workers, 1,000, all of them strong and fit for war.

Jr Zedekiah the son of Josiah, whom Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon made king in the land of Judah, reigned instead of Coniah the son of Jehoiakim.

2 Chronicles 36:13b-16

Jeremiah 37:2 (Jeremiah 52:2,3a)

Zedekiah Did Evil

Kgs And he did what was evil in the sight of the Lord, according to all that Jehoiakim had done. Ch He stiffened his neck and hardened his heart against turning to the Lord, the God of Israel. All the officers of the priests and the people likewise were exceedingly unfaithful, following all the abominations of the nations. And they polluted the house of the Lord that he had made holy in Jerusalem.


The Lord, the God of their fathers, sent persistently to them by his messengers, because he had compassion on his people and on his dwelling place. But they kept mocking the messengers of God, despising his words and scoffing at his prophets, until the wrath of the Lord rose against his people, until there was no remedy. Jr But neither he nor his servants nor the people of the land listened to the words of the Lord that he spoke through Jeremiah the prophet. Kgs For because of the anger of the Lord it came to the point in Jerusalem and Judah that he cast them out from his presence.
