What is the last event recorded in II Kings?

The Babylonian Captivity. King Nebuchadnezzar II of Babylon (reigned 605–562 B.C.E.) came to Judah in 588 B.C.E. and seized Jerusalem. He destroyed Solomon’s temple, and had the gold vessels in the temple cut into small pieces and carried back to Babylon.
