served [heb] stood before









(12) In the tenth day of the month.--2Kings 25:8 gives the "seventh day." We have no means of ascertaining which of the two statements is the more accurate. The Jews have always kept the ninth day as a commemorative fast. And this date is given in the Syriac version of 2 Kings.

Which served the king of Babylon.--Better, which stand before the king. The Hebrew word is one used continually of honourable service (Jeremiah 35:19; Numbers 27:2; Numbers 27:21; Deuteronomy 1:30). In 2Kings 25:8 we have the less accurate term of "servant" or "slave," or "captain of the guard." (See Note on Jeremiah 39:9.) . . .
