    Barnes' Notes on 2 Kings 25:21

    So Judah was carried away - The kingdom of the two tribes was at an end; and the task of the historian might seem to be accomplished. He still, however, desires to notice two things:

    (1) the fate of the remnant 2 Kings 25:22-26 left in the land by Nebuzaradan; and

    (2) the fate of Johoiachin, who, of all those led into captivity, was the least to blame 2 Kings 25:27-30.

    Wesley's Notes on 2 Kings 25:21

    25:21 Out of the land - This compleated their calamity, about eight hundred and sixty years after they were put in possession of it by Joshua.
