2Kgs 25:8-20

8In the fifth month, on the seventh day of the month—which 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.9He burned the house of the Lord, the king's house, and all the houses of Jerusalem; every great house he burned down.10All the army of the Chaldeans who were with the captain of the guard broke down the walls around Jerusalem.11Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard carried into exile the rest of the people who were left in the city and the deserters who had defected to the king of Babylon—all the rest of the population.12But the captain of the guard left some of the poorest people of the land to be vinedressers and tillers of the soil.13The bronze pillars that were in the house of the Lord, as well as the stands and the bronze sea that were in the house of the Lord, the Chaldeans broke in pieces, and carried the bronze to Babylon.14They took away the pots, the shovels, the snuffers, the dishes for incense, and all the bronze vessels used in the temple service,15as well as the firepans and the basins. What was made of gold the captain of the guard took away for the gold, and what was made of silver, for the silver.16As for the two pillars, the one sea, and the stands, which Solomon had made for the house of the Lord, the bronze of all these vessels was beyond weighing.17The height of the one pillar was eighteen cubits, and on it was a bronze capital; the height of the capital was three cubits; latticework and pomegranates, all of bronze, were on the capital all around. The second pillar had the same, with the latticework.18The captain of the guard took the chief priest Seraiah, the second priest Zephaniah, and the three guardians of the threshold;19from the city he took an officer who had been in command of the soldiers, and five men of the king's council who were found in the city; the secretary who was the commander of the army who mustered the people of the land; and sixty men of the people of the land who were found in the city.20Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard took them, and brought them to the king of Babylon at Riblah.
