– Destruction of Jerusalem

Jeremiah 52:12-16; 30

 Now in the fifth month, on the tenth day of the month (which was the nineteenth year of King Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon), Nebuzaradan, the captain of the guard, who served the king of Babylon, came to Jerusalem. He burned the house of the Lord and the king’s house; all the houses of Jerusalem, that is, all the houses of the great, he burned with fire.  And all the army of the Chaldeans who were with the captain of the guard broke down all the walls of Jerusalem all around.  Then Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard carried away captive some of the poor people, the rest of the people who remained in the city, the defectors who had deserted to the king of Babylon, and the rest of the craftsmen. But Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard left some of the poor of the land as vinedressers and farmers.

The Temple was completely destroyed and Judah was carried away captive from its own land (verses 17-28)

Jeremiah 52:30 

In the twenty-third year of Nebuchadnezzar, Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard, carried away captive of the Jews seven hundred and forty-five persons. All the persons were four thousand six hundred.
