2 Kings 25:13-14 KJV
And the pillars of brass that were in the house of the Lord , and the bases, and the brasen sea that was in the house of the Lord , did the Chaldees break in pieces, and carried the brass of them to Babylon.
 And the pots, and the shovels, and the snuffers, and the spoons, and all the vessels of brass wherewith they ministered, took they away.
Not long after I moved into a new neighbourhood, I woke up one morning shocked to the bone. I had been burgled!
Apart from the room in which I slept, the other room was swept clean. Even mobile phone chargers were not left. All was gone, and everything happened while I was asleep.
The Jews in Judah were wide awake when their city was being swept clean by Nebuchadnezzar and his Chaldean army. Not even the pots and shovels in the temple Solomon built were left in this raid. It was a total ransack. What had taken years to build all went down in a few days, and many saw it with eyes widely opened.
This is one of the trademarks of sin. It has the propensity to make you lose all that you have worked for over a long period of time. Could be your dignity, wealth, health or reputation… all could go… just like that. Judah’s example is for our learning, I hope we do.
Have a blessed day.
