    Clarke's Commentary on 2 Chronicles 36:19

    They burnt the house of God - Here was an end to the temple; the most superb and costly edifice ever erected by man.

    Brake down the wall of Jerusalem - So it ceased to be a fortified city.

    Burnt all the palaces - So it was no longer a dwelling-place for kings or great men.

    Destroyed all the goodly vessels - Beat up all the silver and gold into masses, keeping only a few of the finest in their own shape. See 2 Chronicles 36:18.
