3 And the king of Egypt deposed him in Jerusalem, imposed a fine of one hundred talents of silver and a talent of gold on the earth.
4 And the king of Egypt reigned over his brother Eliakim Judea and Jerusalem, and changed his name to Joachim, and Jehoahaz his brother took Necho and led him to Egypt.
5 Twenty-five years old was Joachim when he began to reign, and he reigned eleven years in Jerusalem. And he did evil in the sight of the Lord his God.
6 Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon came out against him and bound him with fetters in order to lead him to Babylon.
7 And part of the vessels of the house of the Lord brought Nebuchadnezzar into Babylon, and laid them in his temple in Babylon.
eight Other works of Joachim and his abominations, which he did and which were found in him, are described in the book of the kings of Israel and Judah. And Jehonia his son reigned in his stead.

eleven Twenty-one years old [was] Zedekiah when he began to reign, and reigned eleven years in Jerusalem,
12 and he did evil in the sight of the Lord his God. He did not humble himself before Jeremiah the prophet [prophesying] from the mouth of the Lord,
thirteen and he repelled himself from King Nebuchadnezzar, who had taken an oath from him in the [name] of God, - and made his neck elastic and hardened his heart until he turned to the Lord God of Israel.
fourteen And all those who ruled over the priests and over the people sinned a lot, imitating all the abominations of the Gentiles, and corrupted the house of the Lord, which He sanctified in Jerusalem.
fifteen And the Lord God sent to them their fathers, His messengers from the early morning, because He pitied His people and His dwelling place.
sixteen But they scoffed at the messengers from God and neglected His words, and cursed at His prophets, until the wrath of the Lord came upon His people, so that [him] was not saved.
17 And He brought the king of the Chaldeans to them, - and he killed the young men with their swords in the house of their shrine and did not spare the young man, the damsel, the old man, or the gray-haired: all [God] delivered into his hand.
18 And all the vessels of the house of God, large and small, and the treasures of the house of the Lord, and the treasures of the king and his princes, he brought all to Babylon.
19 And they burnt down the house of God, and destroyed the wall of Jerusalem, and all the halls burned it with fire, and all its jewels destroyed it.
twenty And he resettled those who remained from the sword to Babylon, and they were his servants and his sons, until the king of Persia reigned,
21 Until, in fulfillment of the word of the Lord [spoken] by the mouth of Jeremiah, the earth did not celebrate its sabbaths. In all the days of desolation she sabbath until the fulfillment of seventy years.

22 And in the first year of Cyrus the king of Persia, in fulfillment of the word of the Lord [spoken] by the lips of Jeremiah, the Lord aroused the spirit of Cyrus the king of Persia, and he ordered to declare throughout his kingdom, verbally and in writing, and say:
23 so says Cyrus, the king of Persia: the Lord of heaven gave me all the kingdoms of the earth, and He commanded me to build him a house in Jerusalem, in Judea. Whoever is of you is from all his people, [the Lord be] his God with him, and let him go there.
