Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 186? edition. Excerpt: ... it came to pass in the seventh and thirtieth year of the captivity of Jehoiachin, king of Judah... that Evil-merodach, king of Babylon, in the year that he began to reign, did lift up the head of Jehoiachin, king of Judah, out of prison" (2 Kings 25: 27). Ezekiel tells us plainly, that the "five and twentieth year of our captivity," was "the fourteenth year after that the city was smitten" (Ezek. 40: 1), which smiting of the city was eleven years after king Jehoiachin was taken, at the end of Zedekiah's eleven years' reign; and fourteen from twenty-five leaves eleven; so this settles the fact that the captivity began at the time Jehoiachin was carried off. History is much confused concerning the time that elapsed from the eighth of Nebuchadnezzar to the fall of Babylon: but in spite of the confusion, several counts agree with the Bible-time of the captivity--seventy years--while others disagree. Josephus gives, after this eighth of Nebuchadnezzar, thirty-five years more to Nebuchadnezzar, eighteen years to Evil-merodach, and seventeen to Nabonedus, whose son, Belshazzar, was reigning jointly with him at the time Babylon fell; and this count makes just seventy years. The Phoenician records give forty-eight years and three months from the seventh year of Nebuchadnezzar, to the time that Cyrus became king of Persia, which was at the death of his father Cambyses; and twenty-three years later he took Babylon; making seventy-one years and three months; but the captivity began one year after this count--in the eighth instead of the seventh of Nebuchadnezzar--so this leaves seventy years and three months for the captivity. Berosus counts for Nebuchadnezzar (after his eighth year) thirty-five years; for Evil-merodach, two years; for Neriglissor, four...show more
