2 Kings 25:3-5 New English Translation (NET Bible)
3 By the ninth day of the fourth month the famine in the city was so severe the residents had no food. 4 The enemy broke through the city walls, and all the soldiers tried to escape. They left the city during the night. They went through the gate between the two walls that is near the king’s garden. (The Babylonians were all around the city.) Then they headed for the Jordan Valley. 5 But the Babylonian army chased after the king. They caught up with him in the plains of Jericho, and his entire army deserted him.
