22 Now you will be disgraced
    because of your sins.
Your leaders will be swept away
    by the wind,
and the nations you trusted
will be captured
and dragged
    to a foreign country.
23 Those who live in the palace
    paneled with cedar[a]
will groan with pain
    like women giving birth.

24 King Jehoiachin,[b] son of Jehoiakim,[c] even if you were the ring I wear as the sign of my royal power, I would still pull you from my finger.

Footnotes

  1. 22.23 who live in the palace paneled with cedar: The Hebrew text has “who live in Lebanon and who nest among the cedars,” which probably means Forest Hall in the royal palace at Jerusalem, which was paneled with cedar and had cedar columns and a cedar ceiling, all from Lebanon (see 1 Kings 7.2,3).
  2. 22.24 Jehoiachin: The Hebrew text has “Coniah,” another form of Jehoiachin’s name; he ruled for three months in 598 B.C.
  3. 22.24 Jehoiakim: See the note at 1.3.
