“In the eighteenth year
Of King Nebuchadnezzar
He took into exile
Eight hundred thirty-two persons.”
This appears to be around 587 BCE, about the time that King Zedekiah revolted. However, this seems like a very small number of only 832 people. Maybe this was earlier under King Jehoiachin. However, despite all the talk about exiles, this number would indicate that very few people went into exile.
