2 Kings 25:13 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

The punishment pronounced upon Zedekiah was the merited reward of the breach of his oath, and his hardening himself against the counsel of the Lord which was announced to him by Jeremiah during the siege, that he should save not only his own life, but also Jerusalem from destruction, by a voluntary submission to the Chaldaeans, whereas by obstinate resistance he would bring an ignominious destruction upon himself, his family, the city, and the whole people (Jeremiah 38:17., Jeremiah 32:5; Jeremiah 34:3.). His sons, who, though not mentioned in 2 Kings 25:4, had fled with him and had been taken, and (according to Jeremiah 52:10 and Jeremiah 39:6) all the nobles (princes) of Judah, sc. those who had fled with the king, were slain before his eyes. He himself was then blinded, and led away to Babel, chained with double chains of brass, and kept a prisoner there till his death (Jeremiah 52:11); so that, as Ezekiel (Ezekiel 12:13) had prophesied, he came to Babel, but did not see the land, and died there. Blinding by pricking out the eyes was a common punishment for princes among the Babylonians and Persians (cf. Herod. vii. 18, and Brisson, de region Pers. princip. p. 589). נחשׁתּים, double brazen chains, are brazen fetters for the hands and feet. Samson was treated in the same manner by the Philistines (Judges 16:21).
