Jerusalem, for the sins of the priests and people, is wholly destroyed.
2 Chronicles 36:14 Also, all the rulers of the priests and of the people, abounded in committing treachery, according to all the abominable ways of the nations,and polluted the house of Yahweh, which he had hallowed in Jerusalem. 2 Chronicles 36:15 And, though Yahweh God of their fathers sent unto them through his messengers, zealously sending them,because he had compassion upon his people and upon his habitation, 2 Chronicles 36:16 yet became they mockers of the messengers of God, and despisers of his words, and mimics of his prophets,until the mounting up of the wrath of Yahweh against his people, until there was no healing. 2 Chronicles 36:17 So he brought up against them the king of the Chaldeans, who slew their young men with the sword, in the house of their sanctuary, and had no compassion upon young man or virgin, elder or ancient,-all, delivered he into his hand. 2 Chronicles 36:18 And, all the utensils of the house of God, both great and small, and the treasures of the house of Yahweh, and the treasures of the king and of his rulers, the whole, carried he to Babylon; 2 Chronicles 36:19 and they burned the house of God, and threw down the wall of Jerusalem,and, all the palaces thereof, burned they with fire, and, all the precious vessels thereof, he destroyed; 2 Chronicles 36:20 and he exiled the remnant left from the sword, into Babylon,where they became his and his sons, as servants, until the reign of the kingdom of Persia: 2 Chronicles 36:21 to fulfill the word of God, by the mouth of Jeremiah, until the land had paid off her sabbaths,all the days of her lying desolate, she kept sabbath, to fulfill seventy years.

2 Chronicles 36:22 But, in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, to accomplish the word of God by the mouth of Jeremiah, Yahweh aroused the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, so that he made proclamation throughout all his kingdom, moreover also in writing, saying: 2 Chronicles 36:23 Thus, saith Cyrus king of Persia, All the kingdoms of the earth, hath Yahweh God of the heavens, given unto me, and, he himself, hath laid charge upon me, to build to him a house, in Jerusalem, which is in Judah. Who is there among you of all his people with whom is Yahweh his God? Then let him go up.
