Look at the context.
Nebuzeardan may have arrived at the Nebuchadnezzars encampment on the seventh, but the city wasnt taken until the nineth 2 Kings 25:3, delaying
Nebuzeardans entrance to the city until the tenth after mopping up resistance to the invasion. Thus both could be correct. Or we could be dealing with scribal
error on one or the other account. It seems that in the context, the entrance into Jerusalem was the tenth.
