Jerusalem Destroyed By Babylonians
When Nebuchadnezzar heard of Zedekiah`s rebellion he came
back to Jerusalem for the last time, in 586 BC, reduced
Jerusalem to rubble and sent the Temple up in flames.
Zedekiah was forced to witness the slaughter of his sons,
then his eyes were put out, and he himself was carried off
to Babylon. The Kingdom was over and the "times of the
gentiles" had begun.
