Zedekiah refused to listen to God and his words.
So God finally banished the people of Judah
and sent them to exile.
God had king Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon to
bring the army against Judah.
They surrounded the city and
burned down the temple.
The number of captives taken to Babylon was 4,600.
King Nebuchadnezzar had ordered his guard
to find Jeremiah and spare his life.
So Jeremiah stayed in Judah among his own people.
