2 Kings 25:17-19 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

16-17 So Nebuzaradan took the large bronze tank and the 2 bronze columns. (Each column was about 31 feet[a] tall. The capitals on the columns were over 5 feet[b] tall. They were made from bronze and had a design like a net and pomegranates. Both columns had the same kind of design.) He also took the carts that Solomon made for the Lord’s Temple. The bronze from these things was too heavy to be weighed.

The People of Judah Taken as Prisoners

18 From the Temple, Nebuzaradan took Seraiah the high priest, Zephaniah the second priest, and the three men who guarded the entrance.

19 From the city Nebuzaradan took one official who was in charge of the army and five of the king’s advisors[c] who were still in the city. He took one secretary of the commander of the army who was in charge of counting the common people and choosing some of them to be soldiers and 60 people who just happened to be in the city.
