Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Kings 24:13-16

_ _ as the Lord had said — (compare 2 Kings 20:17; Isaiah 39:6; Jeremiah 15:13; Jeremiah 17:3). The elite of the nation for rank, usefulness, and moral worth, all who might be useful in Babylon or dangerous in Palestine, were carried off to Babylon, to the number of ten thousand (2 Kings 24:14). These are specified (2 Kings 24:15, 2 Kings 24:16), warriors, seven thousand; craftsmen and smiths, one thousand; king’s wives, officers, and princes, also priests and prophets (Jeremiah 29:1; Ezekiel 1:1), two thousand; equal to ten thousand captives in all.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Kings 24:8-20.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Kings 24:14

All — Not simply all, but the best and most considerable part, as the following words explain it. Captives — Which are more particularly reckoned up, 2 Kings 24:16, where there are seven thousand mighty men, and a thousand smiths; and those mentioned 2 Kings 24:15, make up the other two thousand. Craftsmen and smiths — Who might furnish them with new arms, and thereby give him fresh trouble.
