2 Kings 25:3-5 Evangelical Heritage Version (EHV)

By the ninth day of the fourth month,[a] famine gripped the city, and the people of the land had no bread.

Then the city wall was breached, and all the soldiers fled toward the Arabah through the gate that was between the two walls near the king’s garden, while the Chaldeans[b] were surrounding the city. But the Chaldean army pursued the king. They caught him in the Arabah near Jericho. His whole army was scattered away from him.


  1. 2 Kings 25:3 The Hebrew text does not have the word fourth. Jeremiah 52:6 provides the number of the month.
  2. 2 Kings 25:4 The Chaldeans were the ethnic group that was ruling Babylon at this time.
