In the year 617 B.C.E ., Jehoiachin, king of Judah, surrendered Jerusalem to Nebuchanezzar, who took the foremost people of the land and the treasures of the house of Jehovah and of the king’s house to Babylon. Among the captivities were the king’s family and the princes; the valiant, mighty men; the craftsmen and builders; and Ezekiel the son of Buzi the priest. ( 2 Ki. 24:11-17; Ezek. 1:1-3)
