Babylonian captivity (or Babylonian exile) during which Jews of the ancient Kingdom of Judah were captives in Babylonia. Biblical depictions of the exile include Book of Jeremiah 39–43 (which saw the exile as a lost opportunity); the final section of 2 Kings (which portrays it as the temporary end of history); 2 Chronicles (in which the exile is the "Sabbath of the land"); and the opening chapters of Ezra, which records its end. Other works about the exile include the stories in Daniel 1–6
