52 12 In the fifth month, on the tenth day of the month - which was the nineteenth year of King Nebuchadrezzar, king of Babylon - Nebuzaradan the captain of the bodyguard who served the king of Babylon, entered Jerusalem. 52 13 And he burned the house of Yahweh, and the king's house and all the houses of Jerusalem; every great house he burned down. 52 14 And all the army of the Chaldeans, who were with the captain of the guard, broke down all the walls round about Jerusalem. 52 15 And Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard carried away captive some of the poorest of the people and the rest of the people who were left in the city and the deserters who had deserted to the king of Babylon, together with the rest of the artisans. 52 16 But Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard left some of the poorest of the land to be vinedressers and plowmen.
52 17 And the pillars of bronze that were in the house of Yahweh, and the stands and the bronze sea that were in the house of Yahweh, the Chaldeans broke in pieces, and carried all the bronze to Babylon. 52 18 And they took away the pots, and the shovels, and the snuffers, and the basins, and the dishes for incense, and all the vessels of bronze used in the temple service; 52 19 also the small bowls, and the firepans, and the basins, and the pots, and the lampstands, and the dishes for incense, and the bowls for libation. What was of gold the captain of the guard took away as gold, and what was of silver, as silver. 52 20 As for the two pillars, the one sea, the twelve bronze bulls which were under the sea, and the stands, which Solomon the king had made for the house of Yahweh, the bronze of all these things was beyond weight. 52 21 As for the pillars, the height of the one pillar was eighteen cubits, its circumference was twelve cubits, and its thickness was four fingers, and it was hollow. 52 22 Upon it was a capital of bronze; the height of the one capital was five cubits; a network and pomegranates, all of bronze, were upon the capital round about. And the second pillar had the like, with pomegranates. 52 23 There were ninety-six pomegranates on the sides; all the pomegranates were a hundred upon the network round about.
