8 In the fifth month, on the seventh day of the month—that was the nineteenth year of King Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon—Nebuzaradan, the captain of the bodyguard, a servant of the king of Babylon, came to Jerusalem.9 And he burned the house of the Lordand the king's house and all the houses of Jerusalem; every great house he burned down.10 And all the army of the Chaldeans, who were with the captain of the guard, broke down the walls around Jerusalem.11 And the rest of the people who were left in the city and the deserters who had deserted to the king of Babylon, together with the rest of the multitude, Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard carried into exile.12 But the captain of the guard left some of the poorest of the land to be vinedressers and plowmen.
