(10) At that time.--In the spring of the year (2Chronicles 36:10). Thenius infers from Jeremiah 13:19 ("the cities of the south land are shut up"), that Nebuchadnezzar drew a cordon across that part of the country, to cut off any succours from Egypt.

Was besieged.--See margin; and 2Kings 25:2; Jeremiah 52:5. . . .

Verse 10. - At that time the servants of Nebuchadnezzar King of Babylon came up against Jerusalem. This siege fell probably into the year B.C. 597, which was "the eighth year of Nebuchadnezzar" (ver. 12). Nebuchadnezzar himself was, at the time, engaged in the siege of Tyre, which had revolted in B.C. 598 (see 'Ancient Monarchies,' vol. 3. p. 51), and therefore sent his "servants" - i.e. generals - against Jerusalem. And the city was besieged. Probably for only a short time. Jeconiah may at first have had some hope of support from Egypt, still under the rule of Nechoh; but when no movement was made in this quarter (see the comment on ver. 7), he determined not to provoke his powerful enemy by an obstinate resistance, but to propitiate him, if possible, by a prompt surrender.
