Zedekiah Presentation Transcript

  • 1. 2Ki 24:1 In his days Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came up, and Jehoiakim became his servant three years: then he turned and rebelled against him. 2Ki 24:6 So Jehoiakim slept with his fathers: and Jehoiachin his son reigned in his stead. 2Ki 24:8 Jehoiachin was eighteen years old when he began to reign, and he reigned in Jerusalem three months. And his mother's name was Nehushta, the daughter of Elnathan of Jerusalem. 2Ki 24:12 And Jehoiachin the king of Judah went out to the king of Babylon, he, and his mother, and his servants, and his princes, and his officers: and the king of Babylon took him in the eighth year of his reign. 2Ki 24:17-18 And the king of Babylon made Mattaniah his father's brother king in his stead, and changed his name to Zedekiah. (18) Zedekiah was twenty and one years old when he began to reign, and he reigned eleven years in Jerusalem. And his mother's name was Hamutal, the daughter of Jeremiah of Libnah.
  • 2. 2Ki 24:19 And he did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD, according to all that Jehoiakim had done. 2Ch 36:11-16 Zedekiah was one and twenty years old when he began to reign, and reigned eleven years in Jerusalem. (12) And he did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD his God, and humbled not himself before Jeremiah the prophet speaking from the mouth of the LORD. (13) And he also rebelled against king Nebuchadnezzar, who had made him swear by God: but he stiffened his neck, and hardened his heart from turning unto the LORD God of Israel. (14) Moreover all the chief of the priests, and the people, transgressed very much after all the abominations of the heathen; and polluted the house of the LORD which he had hallowed in Jerusalem. (15) And the LORD God of their fathers sent to them by his messengers, rising up betimes, and sending; because he had compassion on his people, and on his dwelling place: (16) But they mocked the messengers of God, and despised his words, and misused his prophets, until the wrath of the LORD arose against his people, till there was no remedy.
  • 3. Bad King Jer 21:1-14 The word which came unto Jeremiah from the LORD, when king Zedekiah sent unto him Pashur the son of Melchiah, and Zephaniah the son of Maaseiah the priest, saying, (2) Enquire, I pray thee, of the LORD for us; for Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon maketh war against us; if so be that the LORD will deal with us according to all his wondrous works, that he may go up from us.
  • 4. Jer 21:8-14 And unto this people thou shalt say, Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I set 2Ch 33:12-13 And when he life, and the way he besought the LORD abideth in this city shall before you the way of was in affliction, of death. (9) He that his die by thehumbled himself greatly before thethe pestilence: but he that goeth out, and God, and sword, and by the famine, and by God of his fathers, (13) the Chaldeans that besiegehe was intreated of him, and shall be unto him for falleth to And prayed unto him: and you, he shall live, and his life heard his supplication, andset my face against to Jerusalem intoand not for good, saith the a prey. (10) For I have brought him again this city for evil, his kingdom. Then Manasseh knewthe hand LORD he was God. LORD: it shall be given into that the of the king of Babylon, and he shall burn it with fire. (11) And touching the house of the king of Judah, say, Hear ye the word of the LORD; (12) O house of David, thus saith the LORD; Execute judgment in the morning, and deliver him that is spoiled out of the hand of the oppressor, lest my fury Pro 16:18-19 Pride goeth before destruction, and anit, because of the evil of your doings. go out like fire, and burn that none can quench haughtyBehold, I am against thee, O inhabitant of the valley, and rock of the plain, saith (13) spirit before a fall. (19) Better it is to be of an the LORD; which say, Who shall comedivide the humble spirit with the lowly, than to down against us? or who shall enter into our spoil with the proud. But I will punish you according to the fruit of your doings, saith the habitations? (14) LORD: and I will kindle a fire in the forest thereof, and it shall devour all things round about it.
  • 5. Jas 1:21-25 Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls. (22) But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. (23) For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: (24) For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. (25) But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.
  • 6. Eze 8:6-11 He said furthermore unto me, Son of man, seest thou what they 2Ch 36:14 …Moreover all the do? even the great abominations that the house of Israel committeth chief of the priests, and the members which are upon Col 3:5-6 Mortify therefore yourfrom my sanctuary? but turn thee yet again, and here, thattransgressed far off I should go very people,fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, the earth; thou shalt see greater abominations. (7) And he brought me to the door of much after all the evil concupiscence, andI covetousness, a hole in the wall. (8) Then said he unto the court; and when looked, behold which is idolatry: (6) abominations of the sake the wrath of God comethdigged in the For Son of man, digheathen;the wall: and when I had on me, pollutedthings' now the which the house of in and the children of disobedience: LORDbeholdhedoor.hallowed he said unto me, Go in, and behold the wicked wall, which a had (9) And in Jerusalem….that they do here.

  • 7. Jer 37:13-21 … Thou fallest away to the Chaldeans. (14) Then said Jeremiah, It is false; I fall not away to the Chaldeans. But he hearkened not to him: so Irijah took Jeremiah, and Why did Zedekiah do brought him to the princes. (15) Wherefore the princes were wroth with Jeremiah, and smote him, and put himforprison indays’? nothing in ‘many the house of Jonathan the scribe: for they had made that the prison. (16) When Jeremiah was entered into the dungeon, and into the cabins, and Jeremiah had remained there many days; (17) Then Zedekiah the king sent, and took Why did he come to him out: and the king asked him secretly in his house, and said, Is there any word from the Jeremiah in secret? LORD? And Jeremiah said, There is: for, said he, thou shalt be delivered into the hand of the king ofWhy did he Moreover Jeremiah said unto king Zedekiah, What have I offended Babylon. (18) continue to allow against thee, or against thy servants, or against this people, that ye have put me in prison … (20) Therefore hear now, I pray thee, O my lord the king: let my supplication, I pray punishment of thee,theaccepted before thee; that thou cause me not to return to the house of Jonathan be unworthy? the scribe, lest I die there. (21) Then Zedekiah the king commanded that they should commit Jeremiah into the court of the prison, and that they should give him daily a piece of bread out of the bakers' street, until all the bread in the city were spent. Thus Jeremiah remained in the court of the prison.
  • 8. Jer 38:3-6 Thus saith the LORD, This city shall surely be given into the hand of the king of Babylon's army, which shall take it. (4) Therefore the princes said unto the king, We beseech thee, let this man be put to death:allow a man he knew thebe a of the men Why didn’t Zedekiah for thus he weakeneth to hands Mat 10:27-33 What I tellthis city, and the hands of allyeput to death? of war that remain in you in darkness, that speak the people, in what ye hear in speaking such words prophet of God to be in light: and the ear,them: for this man seeketh not the welfareAnd fear not them which kill the Then unto that preach ye upon the housetops.

(10) Then the king commanded Ebedmelech the Ethiopian, saying, Take from hence thirty men with thee, and take up Jeremiah the prophet out of the dungeon, before he die.
  • 9. Jer 38:17-23 Then said Jeremiah unto Zedekiah, Thus saith the LORD, the God of hosts, the God of Israel; If thou wilt assuredly go forth unto the king of Babylon's princes, then thy soul shall live, and this city shall not be burned with fire; and thou shalt live, and thine house: (18) But if thou wilt not go forth to the king of Babylon's princes, then shall this city be given into the hand of the Chaldeans, and they shall burn it with fire, and thou shalt not escape out of their hand. (19) And Zedekiah the king said unto Jeremiah, I am afraid of the Jews that are fallen to the Chaldeans, lest they deliver me into their hand, and they mock me. (20) But Jeremiah said, They shall not deliver thee. Obey, I beseech thee, the voice of the LORD, which I speak unto thee: so it shall be well unto thee, and thy soul shall live. (21) But if thou refuse to go forth, this is the word that the LORD hath shewed me: (22) And, behold, all the women that are left in the king of Judah's house shall be brought forth to the king of Babylon's princes, and those women shall say, Thy friends have set thee on, and have prevailed against thee: thy feet are sunk in the mire, and they are turned away back. (23) So they shall bring out all thy wives and thy children to the Chaldeans: and thou shalt not escape out of their hand, but shalt be taken by the hand of the king of Babylon: and thou shalt cause this city to be burned with fire.
  • 10. Eze 12:9-15 Son of man, hath not the house of Israel, the rebellious house, said unto thee, What doest thou? (10) Say thou unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; This burden concerneth the prince in Jerusalem, and all the house of Israel that are among them. (11) Say, I am your sign: like as I have done, so shall it be done unto them: they shall remove and go into captivity. (12) And the prince that is among them shall bear upon his shoulder in the twilight, and shall go forth: they shall dig through the wall to carry out thereby: he shall cover his face, that he see not the ground with his eyes. (13) My net also will I spread upon him, and he shall be taken in my snare: and I will bring him to Babylon to the land of the Chaldeans; yet shall he not see it, though he shall die there. (14) And I will scatter toward every wind all that are about him to help him, and all his bands; and I will draw out the sword after them. (15) And they shall know that I am the LORD, when I shall scatter them among the nations, and disperse them in the countries.

  • 12. Jer 21:8-9 And unto this people Luk 17:28-33 Likewise also as it was in the days thou shalt say, Thus saith the of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they LORD; Behold, I set before you bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; the way of life, and the way of (29) But the same day that Lot went out of death.

  • 13. Jer 52:6-15. (6) And in the fourth month, in the ninth day of the month, the famine was sore in the city, so that there was no bread for the people of the land. (7) Then the city was broken up, and all the men of war fled, and went forth out of the city by night by the way of the gate between the two walls, which was by the king's garden; (now the Chaldeans were by the city round about:) and they went by the way of the plain. (8) But the army of the Chaldeans pursued after the king, and overtook Zedekiah in the plains of Jericho; and all his army was scattered from him. (9) Then they took the king, and carried him up unto the king of Babylon to Riblah in the land of Hamath; where he gave judgment upon him. (10) And the king of Babylon slew the sons of Zedekiah before his eyes: he slew also all the princes of Judah in Riblah. (11) Then he put out the eyes of Zedekiah; and the king of Babylon bound him in chains, and carried him to Babylon, and put him in prison till the day of his death. (12) Now in the fifth month, in the tenth day of the month, which was the nineteenth year of Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon, came Nebuzaradan, captain of the guard, which served the king of Babylon, into Jerusalem, (13) And burned the house of the LORD, and the king's house; and all the houses of Jerusalem, and all the houses of the great men, burned he with fire: (14) And all the army of the Chaldeans, that were with the captain of the guard, brake down all the walls of Jerusalem round about. (15) Then Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard carried away captive certain of the poor of the people, and the residue of the people that remained in the city, and those that fell away, that fell to the king of Babylon, and the rest of the multitude.
