You will not escape from his hand, for you will surely be captured and delivered into his hand; and you will see the king of Babylon eye to eye, and he will speak with you face to face, and you will go to Babylon.’”’
He then blinded Zedekiah’s eyes and bound him in fetters of bronze to bring him to Babylon.
