They killed the sons of Zedekiah before his eyes and then put out the eyes of Zedekiah and he bound him in fetters and carried him to Babylon. Bible see other translations

“and put out the eyes of Zedekiah.” The punishment of Zedekiah was especially severe because Zedekiah had sworn allegiance to Nebuchadnezzar in the name of God (2 Chron. 36:13; Jer. 52:10-11).

“and he bound him in fetters.” The “he” is Nebuchadnezzar, who gave the order to bind Zedekiah.
