2 Kings 15:29
In the days of Pekah king of Israel, Tiglath-pileser king of Assyria came and captured Ijon, Abel-beth-maacah, Janoah, Kedesh, Hazor, Gilead, and Galilee-- all the land of Naphtali-- and deported the people to Assyria.
2 Kings 17:1-6
1
In the twelfth year of Judah's King Ahaz, Hoshea son of Elah became king over Israel in Samaria; [he reigned] nine years.
2
He did what was evil in the LORD's sight, but not like the kings of Israel who preceded him.
3
Shalmaneser king of Assyria attacked him, and Hoshea became his vassal and paid him tribute money.
4
But the king of Assyria discovered a conspiracy by Hoshea-- he had sent envoys to So king of Egypt and had not paid tribute money to the king of Assyria as in previous years. Therefore, the king of Assyria arrested him and put him in prison.
5
Then the king of Assyria invaded the whole land, marched up to Samaria, and besieged it for three years.
6
In the ninth year of Hoshea, the king of Assyria captured Samaria. He deported the Israelites to Assyria and settled them in Halah and by the Habor, Gozan's river, and in the cities of the Medes.
2 Kings 18:9-12
9
In the fourth year of King Hezekiah, which was the seventh year of Israel's King Hoshea son of Elah, Shalmaneser king of Assyria marched against Samaria and besieged it.
10
The Assyrians captured it at the end of three years. In the sixth year of Hezekiah, which was the ninth year of Israel's King Hoshea, Samaria was captured.
11
The king of Assyria deported the Israelites to Assyria and put them in Halah and by the Habor, Gozan's river, and in the cities of the Medes,
12
because they did not listen to the voice of the LORD their God but violated His covenant-- all He had commanded Moses the servant of the LORD. They did not listen, and they did not obey.
2 Kings 24:1-25
1
During his reign, Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon attacked, and Jehoiakim became his vassal for three years. Then he turned and rebelled against him.
2
The LORD sent Chaldean, Aramean, Moabite, and Ammonite raiders against Jehoiakim. He sent them against Judah to destroy it, according to the word of the LORD He had spoken through His servants the prophets.
3
This happened to Israel only at the LORD's command to remove them from His sight. It was because of the sins of Manasseh, according to all he had done,
4
and also because of all the innocent blood he had shed. He had filled Jerusalem with innocent blood, and the LORD would not forgive.
5
The rest of the events of Jehoiakim's [reign], along with all his accomplishments, are written about in the Historical Record of Judah's Kings.
6
Jehoiakim rested with his fathers, and his son Jehoiachin became king in his place.
7
Now the king of Egypt did not march out of his land again, for the king of Babylon took everything that belonged to the king of Egypt, from the Brook of Egypt to the Euphrates River.
8
Jehoiachin was 18 years old when he became king; he reigned three months in Jerusalem. His mother's name was Nehushta daughter of Elnathan; [she was] from Jerusalem.
9
He did what was evil in the LORD's sight as his father had done.
10
At that time the servants of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon marched up to Jerusalem, and the city came under siege.
11
Then King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon came to the city while his servants were besieging it.
12
Jehoiachin king of Judah, along with his mother, his servants, his commanders, and his officials, surrendered to the king of Babylon. So the king of Babylon took him [captive] in the eighth year of his reign.
13
He also carried off from there all the treasures of the LORD's temple and the treasures of the king's palace, and he cut into pieces all the gold articles that Solomon king of Israel had made for the LORD's sanctuary, just as God had predicted.
14
Then he deported all Jerusalem and all the commanders and all the fighting men, 10,000 captives, and all the craftsmen and metalsmiths. Except for the poorest people of the land, nobody remained.
15
Nebuchadnezzar deported Jehoiachin to Babylon. Also, he took the king's mother, the king's wives, his officials, and the leading men of the land into exile from Jerusalem to Babylon.
16
The king of Babylon also brought captive into Babylon all 7,000 fighting men and 1,000 craftsmen and metalsmiths-- all strong and fit for war.
17
Then the king of Babylon made Mattaniah, Jehoiachin's uncle, king in his place and changed his name to Zedekiah.
18
Zedekiah was 21 years old when he became king; he reigned 11 years in Jerusalem. His mother's name was Hamutal daughter of Jeremiah; [she was] from Libnah.
19
Zedekiah did what was evil in the LORD's sight just as Jehoiakim had done.
20
Because of the LORD's anger, it came to the point in Jerusalem and Judah that He finally banished them from His presence. Then, Zedekiah rebelled against the king of Babylon.
Daniel 2:37-43
37
Your Majesty, you are king of kings. The God of heaven has given you sovereignty, power, strength, and glory.
38
Wherever people live-- or wild animals, or birds of the air-- He has handed them over to you and made you ruler over them all. You are the head of gold.
39
"After you, there will arise another kingdom, inferior to yours, and then another, a third kingdom, of bronze, which will rule the whole earth.
40
A fourth kingdom will be as strong as iron; for iron crushes and shatters everything, and like iron that smashes, it will crush and smash all the others.
41
You saw the feet and toes, partly of a potter's fired clay and partly of iron-- it will be a divided kingdom, though some of the strength of iron will be in it. You saw the iron mixed with clay,
42
and that the toes of the feet were part iron and part fired clay-- part of the kingdom will be strong, and part will be brittle.
43
You saw the iron mixed with clay-- the peoples will mix with one another but will not hold together, just as iron does not mix with fired clay.
Daniel 7:3-8
3
Four huge beasts came up from the sea, each different from the other.
4
"The first was like a lion but had eagle's wings. I continued watching until its wings were torn off. It was lifted up from the ground, set on its feet like a man, and given a human mind.
5
"Suddenly, another beast appeared, a second one, that looked like a bear. It was raised up on one side, with three ribs in its mouth between its teeth. It was told, 'Get up! Gorge yourself on flesh.'
6
"While I was watching, another beast appeared. It was like a leopard with four wings of a bird on its back. It had four heads and was given authority to rule.
7
"While I was watching in the night visions, a fourth beast appeared, frightening and dreadful, and incredibly strong, with large iron teeth. It devoured and crushed, and it trampled with its feet whatever was left. It was different from all the beasts before it, and it had 10 horns.
8
"While I was considering the horns, suddenly another horn, a little one, came up among them, and three of the first horns were uprooted before it. There were eyes in this horn like a man's, and it had a mouth that spoke arrogantly.
Daniel 8:3-14
3
I looked up, and there was a ram standing beside the canal. He had two horns. The two horns were long, but one was longer than the other, and the longer one came up last.
4
I saw the ram charging to the west, the north, and the south. No animal could stand against him, and there was no rescue from his power. He did whatever he wanted and became great.
5
As I was observing, a male goat appeared, coming from the west across the surface of the entire earth without touching the ground. The goat had a conspicuous horn between his eyes.
6
He came toward the two-horned ram I had seen standing beside the canal and rushed at him with savage fury.
7
I saw him approaching the ram, and infuriated with him, he struck the ram, shattering his two horns, and the ram was not strong enough to stand against him. The goat threw him to the ground and trampled him, and there was no one to rescue the ram from his power.
8
Then the male goat became very great, but when he became powerful, the large horn was shattered. Four conspicuous horns came up in its place, [pointing] toward the four winds of heaven.
9
From one of them a little horn emerged and grew extensively toward the south and the east and toward the beautiful land.
10
It grew as high as the heavenly host, made some of the stars and some of the host fall to the earth, and trampled them.
11
It made itself great, even up to the Prince of the host; it removed His daily sacrifice and overthrew the place of His sanctuary.
12
Because of rebellion, a host, together with the daily sacrifice, will be given over. The horn will throw truth to the ground and will be successful in whatever it does.
13
Then I heard a holy one speaking, and another holy one said to the speaker, "How long will [the events of] this vision last-- the daily sacrifice, the rebellion that makes desolate, and the giving over of the sanctuary and of the host to be trampled?"
14
He said to me, "For 2,300 evenings and mornings; then the sanctuary will be restored."
Daniel 11:28-35
28
The king of the North will return to his land with great wealth, but his heart will be set against the holy covenant; he will take action, then return to his own land.
29
"At the appointed time he will come again to the South, but this time will not be like the first.
30
Ships of Kittimwill come against him, and being intimidated, he will withdraw. Then he will rage against the holy covenant and take action. On his return, he will favor those who abandon the holy covenant.
31
His forces will rise up and desecrate the temple fortress. They will abolish the daily sacrifice and set up the abomination of desolation.
32
With flattery he will corrupt those who act wickedly toward the covenant, but the people who know their God will be strong and take action.
33
Those who are wise among the people will give understanding to many, yet they will die by sword and flame, and be captured and plundered for a time.
34
When defeated, they will be helped by some, but many others will join them insincerely.
35
Some of the wise will fall so that they may be refined, purified, and cleansed until the time of the end, for it will still come at the appointed time.
