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.
