The siege of Jerusalem (598 BCE) (2 Kings 24:10-24:12)

“At that time, the servants of King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon came up to Jerusalem. The city was besieged. King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon came to the city, while his servants were besieging it. King Jehoiachin of Judah gave himself up to the king of Babylon, himself, his mother, his servants, his princes, and his palace officials. The king of Babylon took him prisoner in the eighth year of his reign.”

The first successful siege of Jerusalem took place during the 8th year of the reign of King Nebuchadnezzar in 598 BCE. While the siege was going on, King Jehoiachin of Judah surrendered himself, his family, his servants, and all the palace officials. They all became the prisoners of King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon.
