The Babylonian captivity or Babylonian exile is the 70-year periodin Jewish history during which a number of people from the ancientKingdom of Judah were forcibly exiled to Babylonia. 1) The general spiritual reason for the Babylonian Exile was thatGod had found the people of Judah to be below the s…piritual levelthat was a requisite for having His presence remain among them. Theprophets had warned them (Jeremiah 7:25) but were not sufficientlyheeded (2 Chronicles 36:16). Once God's presence no longer feltwelcome, the destruction and exile were just a matter of time(Talmud, Rosh Hashanah 31a, and midrash Eichah Rabbah 1:43). A more specific spiritual reason was the egregious sins ofMenasheh, king of Judah (2 Kings 21:11-13 and 24:3). 2) The temporal circumstance was the fact that King Yehoiakim,after having been obedient to Nevuchadnezzar (king of Babylonia),became insubordinate (2 Kings 24:1); and Nevuchadnezzar respondedby conquering the land of Judah, destroying the First Temple andexiling the populace. Some positive results: the false prophets, at long last, weresilenced forever. They had predicted that Judah would remainindependent of Babylonia (Jeremiah ch.27) and no Destruction wouldtake place. Also, the lure of idolatry finally weakened, since the Destructionand Exile happened exactly as predicted by the true Prophets, whowere the same ones who had spoken ceaselessly against dabbling inidolatry.

Well, how would you respond if someone told you that a majorcapital, such as Beijing, Moscow, or Washington, D.C. would becomean uninhabited ruin? You would rightly be skeptical, would you not.Yet, that is what happened with ancient Babylon. You see, some 200years in advance, about the year 732 B.C.…E., it was Jehovah God whoinspired the Hebrew prophet Isaiah to put in writing a prophecyabout the demise of mighty Babylon. He wrote: "Babylon, thedecoration of kingdoms,....must become as when God overthrew Sodomand Gomorrah. She will never be inhabited, nor will she reside forgeneration after generation.-Isaiah 13:19,20. But why would God foretell Babylon's destruction? Well in 607B.C.E., Babylonian armies destroyed Jerusalem and took thesurvivors off to Babylon, where they were treated cruelly. (Psalm137:8,9) In fact, God foretold that his people would have to endurethis bitter treatment for 70 years because of their own wickeddeeds. Then God would deliver them and let them return to theirhomeland.-Jeremiah 25:11; 29:10. So true to God's prophetic Word, in 539 B.C.E., just as Judah's70-year exile was about to end-the seemingly invincible city ofBabylon was overthrown by the Medo-Persian armies. In time, thecity became a heap of ruins, just as predicted. You see, no humancould foretell such a striking achievement. Without a doubt, theact of prophesying, or foretelling events in advance, sets theAuthor of the Bible, which is from the true God, Jehovah, apartfrom any other god.-Isaiah 46:9,10. ( Full Answer )
