From the old box (19th & 20th century Christadelphian writings)
Babylonish history dates back to the building of the Tower of Babel (Gen. x. 10; xi. 9), which is variously put at from B.C. 2500 to B.C. 2200. Since then the outstanding incidents concerning Babylon and of interest to Bible students are the following:
— 1. Embassy from the King of Babylon to Hezekiah, King of Judah, about B.C. 712.
2. Fall of Nineveh to the revolting Babylonians under Nabopollassar, B.C.625.
3. Defeat of Necho, of Egypt, by Nebuchadnezzar, of Babylon, B.C. 605.
4. Capture of Jerusalem by Nebuchadnezzar, B.C. 586.
5. Fall of Babylon during the kingship of Belshazzar to Medo-Persians under Cyrus, B.C. 538.
