This is the number of the people whom Nebuchadnezzar
led away captive: in his seventh year, three thousand
and twenty-three people of Judah; in the eighteenth year
of Nebuchadnezzar, eight hundred and thirty-two persons
from Jerusalem; in the twenty-third year of
Nebuchadnezzar, Nebuzaradan, captain of the guard,
exiled seven hundred and forty-five people of Judah:
four thousand six hundred persons in all.
A "remnant", a few,
remained in Israel.
2 Kings 25:12
But some of the country's poor, Nebuzaradan, captain
the guard, left behind as
vinedressers and farmers.
