Then Sedecias said to Jeremias: Let no man know these words, and thou shalt not die.
And he appointed Matthanias, his uncle, in his stead: and called his name Sedecias.
And he slew the sons of Sedecias before his face, and he put out his eyes, and bound him with chains, and brought him to Babylon.
And the city was besieged until the eleventh year of king Sedecias.
He also put out the eyes of Sedecias: and bound him with fetters, to be carried to Babylon.
Sedecias is carried before Nabuchodonosor, who kills his sons in his sight, and then puts out his eyes.
And in the eleventh year of Sedecias, in the fourth month, the fifth day of the month, the city was opened.
And king Sedecias said: Behold he is in your hands: for it is not lawful for the king to deny you any thing.
He speaks to king Sedecias, who had broken his oath, and was otherwise a wicked prince.
