The People Exiled to Babylon

Jeremiah 52

24 r The captain of the guard took Seraiah the chief priest, s Zephaniah the second priest, and the three doorkeepers. 25 He also took out of the city an 1 officer who had charge of the men of war, seven men of the king's close associates who were found in the city, the principal scribe of the army who mustered the people of the land, and sixty men of the people of the land who were found in the midst of the city. 26 And Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard took these and brought them to the king of Babylon at Riblah. 27 Then the king of Babylon struck them and put them to death at Riblah in the land of Hamath. Thus Judah was carried away captive from its own land.

28 t These are the people whom Nebuchadnezzar carried away captive: u in the seventh year, v three thousand and twenty-three Jews; 29 w in the eighteenth year of Nebuchadnezzar he carried away captive from Jerusalem eight hundred and thirty-two persons; 30 in the twenty-third year of Nebuchadnezzar, Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard carried away captive of the Jews seven hundred and forty-five persons. All the persons were four thousand six hundred.
