Notice that this puts the period of Jeru Salem's desolation at fifty years. For he quoted God as saying (at Jeremiah , 12): 'There'll be extinction throughout the whole land, And you'll serve these nations for seventy years, As well as Babylon's king.And after seventy years are fulfilled; On the king of Babylon and his wicked nation, I will then take My vengeance For the unrighteous things that they'll do, says Jehovah.' Then he again wrote (at Jeremiah ): 'After the seventy years On Babylon have been fulfilled, I'll come visit you and do as I said I'll bring your people back to this place ' Well, how did that period work out in the end?For, this is the seventieth year of Your rage.' Notice also what the ancient Jewish historian said about this in 'The Works of Flavius Josephus,' as Translated by William Whiston under the subheading, 'How Cyrus, King Of The Persians, Delivered The Jews Out Of Babylon And Suffered Them To Return To Their Own Country And To Build Their Temple, For Which Work He Gave Them Money:' 'In the first year of the reign of Cyrus, which was the seventieth from the day that our people were removed out of their own land into Babylon, God commiserated the captivity and calamity of these poor people, according as he had foretold to them by Jeremiah the prophet before the destruction of the city, that after they had served Nebuchadnezzar and his posterity, and after they had undergone that servitude seventy years, he would restore them again to the land of their fathers, and they should build their temple, and enjoy their ancient prosperity.And these things God did afford them; for he stirred up the mind of Cyrus, and made him write this throughout all Asia: Thus saith Cyrus the king: Since God Almighty hath appointed me to be king of the habitable earth, I believe that he is that God which the nation of the Israelites worship; for indeed he foretold my name by the prophets, and that I should build him a house at Jerusalem, in the country of Judea.In addition, extensive records are available for research on families as well as history of the area.
