They killed the sons of Zedekiah before his eyes and put out the eyes of Zedekiah, and bound him in fetters and carried him to Babylon. Bible

“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).
