Bible: Jer. 39:3-5
39:3 Then Nergal-Sharezer of Samgar, Nebo-Sarsekim, who was a chief officer, Nergal-Sharezer, who was a high official, 1 and all the other officers of the king of Babylon came and set up quarters 2 in the Middle Gate. 3 39:4 When King Zedekiah of Judah and all his soldiers saw them, they tried to escape. They departed from the city during the night. They took a path through the king’s garden and passed out through the gate between the two walls. 4 Then they headed for the Jordan Valley. 5 39:5 But the Babylonian 6 army chased after them. They caught up with Zedekiah in the plains of Jericho 7 and captured him. 8 They took him to King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon at Riblah 9 in the territory of Hamath and Nebuchadnezzar passed sentence on him there.
