2nd Captivity

At approx. 600 BC Jehoiakim King of Judah was taken captive and died just outside of Jerusalem for refusing to pay tribute, and his son Jeconiah was made King in his stead (2 Kings 24:2-9, Jer. 52:28). This was the 11th year of Jehoiakim’s reign and the 7th year of Nebuchadnezzar’s reign (2 Kings 23:36). Note: Jehoiakim was bound in chains and meant to be carried to Babylon, but he died just outside of the gates of Jerusalem (see 2 Chron. 36:6 & Jer. 22:18-19). [3320 Jews were taken captive - Jer. 52:28]
