I bet someone’s looking up the history of India now.  The answer was Babylon, hon.  Nebuchadnezzar destroyed the temple and took the people out in stages, during which time he carried the king away into Babylon and made the guy’s uncle the puppet king over the land until Nebby just decided to level it all later on.  Who was this puppet king?

-Mordecai-

-Jehoiakim-

-Jehoiachin-

-Zedekiah-
