In order to secure the territory of Judah, Nebuchadnezzar brought Jehoiachin and Zedekiah, the last two kings of Judah, and held them in Babylon. In keeping with Assyrian practice, the "New Babylonians," or Chaldeans forced a large part of the Jewish population to relocate. Numbering possibly up to 10,000, these Jewish deportees were largely upper class people and craftspeople; this deportation marks the beginning of the Exile in Jewish history.
