On August 15, B.C. 586, Nebuzaradan destroyed Jerusalem, burning the Temple and palace, and breaking down the city walls. He began siege against it in January, 588 B.C., and it fell on July 19, 586 B.C. This was prophesied previously:
2 Kings 20:17 Behold, the days come, that all that is in thine house, and that which thy fathers have laid up in store unto this day, shall be carried into Babylon: nothing shall be left, saith the LORD.
2 Kings 23:27 And the LORD said, I will remove Judah also out of my sight, as I have removed Israel, and will cast off this city Jerusalem which I have chosen, and the house of which I said, My name shall be there.
