Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Kings 25:6-7

_ _ they took the king, and brought him ... to Riblah — Nebuchadnezzar, having gone from the siege to oppose the auxiliary forces of Pharaoh-hophra, left his generals to carry on the blockade, he himself not returning to the scene of action, but taking up his station at Riblah in the land of Hamath (2 Kings 23:33).

_ _ they gave judgment upon him — They, that is, the council (Jeremiah 39:3, Jeremiah 39:13; Daniel 6:7, Daniel 6:8, Daniel 6:12), regarding him as a seditious and rebellious vassal, condemned him for violating his oath and neglecting the announcement of the divine will as made known to him by Jeremiah (compare Jeremiah 32:5; Jeremiah 34:2; Jeremiah 38:17). His sons and the nobles who had joined in his flight were slain before his eyes (Jeremiah 39:6; Jeremiah 52:10). In conformity with Eastern ideas, which consider a blind man incapable of ruling, his eyes were put out, and being put in chains, he was carried to perpetual imprisonment in Babylon (Jeremiah 52:11), which, though he came to it, as Ezekiel had foretold, he did not see (Jeremiah 32:5; Ezekiel 12:13; Ezekiel 17:16).
