2 Kings 24 Maori Bible (MAORI)
24 I ona ra ka haere mai a Nepukaneha kingi o Papurona; na ka pononga a Iehoiakimi ki a ia, e toru tau. Katahi tera ka tahuri, ka whakakeke ki a ia.
2 Na ka ngarea mai e Ihowa ki a ia nga ope o nga Karari, me nga ope o nga Hiriani, me nga ope o nga Moapi, me nga ope o nga tama a Amona; a ngarea ana mai ratou e ia ki a Hura hei huna mo reira, i rite ai te kupu a Ihowa i korerotia e ana pononga, e nga poropiti.
3 He pono, na te kupu a Ihowa i pa ai tenei ki a Hura, hei whakawatea atu i a ratou i tona aroaro, mo nga hara o Manahi, ara mo ana mea katoa i mea ai ia,
4 Mo te toto harakore hoki i whakahekea e ia; i kapi katoa hoki a Hiruharama i a ia i te toto harakore, a kihai a Ihowa i pai kia whakarerea noatia tenei.
5 Na, ko era atu meatanga a Iehoiakimi me ana mea katoa i mea ai ia, kihai ianei i tuhituhia ki te pukapuka o nga meatanga o nga ra o nga kingi o Hura?
6 Na ka moe a Iehoiakimi ki ona matua, a ko Iehoiakini, ko tana tama, te kingi i muri i a ia.
7 Na heoi ano putanga o te kingi o Ihipa i tona whenua; kua riro hoki i te kingi o Papurona nga wahi katoa o te kingi o Ihipa, no te awa ra ano o Ihipa tae noa ki te awa ki Uparati.
8 Kotahi tekau ma waru nga tau o Iehoiakini i tona kingitanga, a e toru nga marama i kingi ai ia ki Hiruharama. A ko te ingoa o tona whaea ko Nehuhuta, he tamahine na Erenatana o Hiruharama.
9 A he kino tana mahi ki te titiro a Ihowa, i rite ki nga mea katoa i mea ai tona papa.
10 I taua wa ka whakaekea a Hiruharama e nga tangata a Nepukaneha kingi o Papurona, a whakapaea ana te pa.
11 Na ka haere mai a Nepukaneha kingi o Papurona ki te pa, i te mea e whakapaea ana a reira e ana tangata.
12 Na ka puta a Iehoiakini kingi o Hura ki te kingi o Papurona, a ia, tona whaea, ana tangata, ana rangatira, me ana kaiwhakahaere: na kua mau i te kingi o Papurona i te waru o nga tau o tona kingitanga.
13 Na maturia atu ana e ia i reira nga taonga katoa o te whare o Ihowa, me nga taonga o te whare o te kingi; tapatapahia ana hoki e ia nga oko koura katoa i hanga e Horomona kingi o Iharaira ki te temepara o Ihowa, pera ana me ta Ihowa i korero ai.
14 Whakahekea katoatia ana hoki e ia a Hiruharama katoa, nga rangatira katoa, me nga marohirohi katoa, tekau mano nga parau, me nga kaimahi katoa, me nga parakimete; kihai tetahi i mahue, heoi ano ko te hunga rawakore o te whenua.
15 A i whakahekea e ia a Iehoiakini ki Pupurona; me te whaea o te kingi, me nga wahine a te kingi, me ana kaiwhakahaere, me te hunga nunui o te whenua; whakahekea ana ratou e ia i Hiruharama hei parau ki Papurona.
16 Me nga toa, e whitu mano, nga kaimahi, nga parakimete, kotahi mano, nga marohirohi katoa e pai ana hei whawhai: kawea ana ratou e te kingi hei parau ki Papurona.
17 Na meinga ana e te kingi o Papurona ko Matania, teina o tona papa, hei kingi i muri i a ia, whakawhitia ketia ana tona ingoa ko Terekia.
18 E rua tekau ma tahi nga tau o Terekia i tona kingitanga, a kotahi tekau ma tahi nga tau i kingi ai ki Hiruharama. A ko te ingoa o tona whaea ko Hamutara, he tamahine na Heremaia o Ripina.
19 A he kino tana mahi ki te titiro a Ihowa; i rite ki nga mea katoa i mea ai a Iehoiakimi.
20 Na reira, i a Ihowa ka riri nei, ka puta te aitua ki Hiruharama, ki a Hura, a maka noatia atu ratou i tona aroaro: a whakakeke ana a Terekia ki te kingi o Papurona.
2 Kings 24 New International Version (NIV)
24 During Jehoiakim’s reign, Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon invaded the land, and Jehoiakim became his vassal for three years. But then he turned against Nebuchadnezzar and rebelled. 2 The Lord sent Babylonian,[a] Aramean, Moabite and Ammonite raiders against him to destroy Judah, in accordance with the word of the Lord proclaimed by his servants the prophets. 3 Surely these things happened to Judah according to the Lord’s command, in order to remove them from his presence because of the sins of Manasseh and all he had done, 4 including the shedding of innocent blood. For he had filled Jerusalem with innocent blood, and the Lord was not willing to forgive.
5 As for the other events of Jehoiakim’s reign, and all he did, are they not written in the book of the annals of the kings of Judah? 6 Jehoiakim rested with his ancestors. And Jehoiachin his son succeeded him as king.
7 The king of Egypt did not march out from his own country again, because the king of Babylon had taken all his territory, from the Wadi of Egypt to the Euphrates River.
Jehoiachin King of Judah
8 Jehoiachin was eighteen years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem three months. His mother’s name was Nehushta daughter of Elnathan; she was from Jerusalem. 9 He did evil in the eyes of the Lord, just as his father had done.
10 At that time the officers of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon advanced on Jerusalem and laid siege to it, 11 and Nebuchadnezzar himself came up to the city while his officers were besieging it. 12 Jehoiachin king of Judah, his mother, his attendants, his nobles and his officials all surrendered to him.
In the eighth year of the reign of the king of Babylon, he took Jehoiachin prisoner. 13 As the Lord had declared, Nebuchadnezzar removed the treasures from the temple of the Lord and from the royal palace, and cut up the gold articles that Solomon king of Israel had made for the temple of the Lord. 14 He carried all Jerusalem into exile: all the officers and fighting men, and all the skilled workers and artisans—a total of ten thousand. Only the poorest people of the land were left.
15 Nebuchadnezzar took Jehoiachin captive to Babylon. He also took from Jerusalem to Babylon the king’s mother, his wives, his officials and the prominent people of the land. 16 The king of Babylon also deported to Babylon the entire force of seven thousand fighting men, strong and fit for war, and a thousand skilled workers and artisans. 17 He made Mattaniah, Jehoiachin’s uncle, king in his place and changed his name to Zedekiah.
Zedekiah King of Judah
18 Zedekiah was twenty-one years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem eleven years. His mother’s name was Hamutal daughter of Jeremiah; she was from Libnah. 19 He did evil in the eyes of the Lord, just as Jehoiakim had done. 20 It was because of the Lord’s anger that all this happened to Jerusalem and Judah, and in the end he thrust them from his presence.
The Fall of Jerusalem
Now Zedekiah rebelled against the king of Babylon.
