1:2   Hashem delivered King Yehoyakim of Yehuda into his power

The exile from the Land of Israel to Babylonia happened in three stages. In the first stage, Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylonia, deported King Yehoyakim, some young Judeans, and vessels from the Beit Hamikdash. Hashem hoped that the People of Israel would be shaken after this calamitous event, and that they would repent and avert further punishment. Unfortunately, the people ignored this message and were eventually exiled in two additional stages. The young Jews who arrived first in Babylonia were ultimately able to encourage their brothers who came in the subsequent rounds of exile. When the later stages of exile arrived, they found Daniel, Chananya, Mishael, and Azarya, in positions of power in the palace. This gave them the strength to survive, avoid assimilation, and not to despair of their eventual return to Eretz Yisrael.

    Everybody is from that line because we all came from Noah's sons. …I believe.

  • The speed of Hebrew reading is perfect for my reading capability, although there are many words that I do not know.

  • This commentary reminded me of Jeremiah 29:11. Amazing to see His hand upon His people. Plans of Peace!

  • I love studying Ezekiel, Daniel, and the book of Revelations. These books are very symbolic and prophetic.
    As told by a Rabbi, I am from the bloodline of Lamech. Where may I find more information about Lamech?
    I know he was the father of Noah. Onward to Zion! Shalom!
