36:11 Zedekiah was twenty-one years old when he became king, and he ruled for eleven years in Jerusalem.17 36:12 He did evil in the sight of18 the Lord his God. He did not humble himself before Jeremiah the prophet, the Lord’s spokesman. 36:13 He also rebelled against King Nebuchadnezzar, who had made him vow allegiance19 in the name of God. He was stubborn and obstinate, and refused to return20 to the Lord God of Israel. 36:14 All the leaders of the priests and people became more unfaithful and committed the same horrible sins practiced by the nations.21 They defiled the Lord’s temple which he had consecrated in Jerusalem.
