2 Chronicles 36:10
36:10 At the beginning of the year King Nebuchadnezzar ordered him to be brought15 to Babylon, along with the valuable items in the Lord’s temple. In his place he made his relative16 Zedekiah king over Judah and Jerusalem.
tn Heb “sent and brought him.”
tn Heb “and he made Zedekiah his brother king.” According to the parallel text in 2 Kgs 24:17, Zedekiah was Jehoiachin’s uncle, not his brother. Therefore many interpreters understand אח here in its less specific sense of “relative” (NEB “made his father’s brother Zedekiah king”; NASB “made his kinsman Zedekiah king”; NIV “made Jehoiachin’s uncle, Zedekiah, king”; NRSV “made his brother Zedekiah king”).
