2 Kings 24-25; 2 Chronicles 36

24 - Babylon conquers Jehoiakim. Jehoiachin made king but conquered 3 months later. Zedekiah made king by Babylon and reigns for 11 years.
25 - Zedekiah rebels and is conquered. Jerusalem burned and exiled. Governor Gedaliah assasinated, and the people flee to Egypt.

36 - Same as above. Also, the land was given rest for 70 years, for all the Sabbaths Israel failed to give it. After that time Cyrus decrees Israel free to return.
