The Babylonian exile was the period in Jewish history during which the Jews of the ancient Kingdom of Judah were captives in Babylon. The Babylonians soon took over most of Western Asia. So they took over both Israel and Judah. Because the Jews had fought on the side of the Assyrians, the Babylonians thought the Jews were troublemakers. So the Babylonians destroyed the Temple that Solomon had built, and took many of the richer, more aristocratic Jews prisoner, both men and women, and their children, and took them away to Babylon where they could keep an eye on them. This is called the Babylonian Captivity. Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Ezekiel all wrote sad lamentations about the destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple, which are in The Bible.

God allows free will, so if the Babylonians chose to do evil, it was their decision, not God's.
