Babylon Controls Jehoiakim
1 aIn his days° Nebuchadnezzar° king° of Babylon° came° up, and Jehoiakim° became° his servant° [for] three° years°; then he turned° and rebelled° against him. 2 The LORD° sent° against him abands° of Chaldeans°, bbands° of Arameans°, cbands° of Moabites°, and bands° of Ammonites°°. So He sent° them against Judah° to destroy° it, daccording to the word° of the LORD° which° He had spoken° through° His servants° the prophets°. 3 aSurely° at the Icommand° of the LORD° it came° upon Judah°, to remove° [them] from His sight° bbecause of the sins° of Manasseh°, according to all° that he had done°, 4 and aalso° for the innocent° blood° which° he shed°, for he filled° Jerusalem° with innocent° blood°; and the LORD° would° not forgive°. 5 Now the rest° of the acts° of Jehoiakim° and all° that he did°, are they not written° in the Book° of the Chronicles°° of the Kings° of Judah°?
