10 Do not weep for the dead(A) king or mourn(B) his loss;
    rather, weep bitterly for him who is exiled,
because he will never return(C)
    nor see his native land again.

11 For this is what the Lord says about Shallum[a](D) son of Josiah, who succeeded his father as king of Judah but has gone from this place: “He will never return. 12 He will die(E) in the place where they have led him captive; he will not see this land again.”
