Jeremiah 22:22-24 Expanded Bible (EXB)

22 ·Like a storm, my punishment will blow all your shepherds away [L The wind will shepherd all your shepherds away]
    and send your ·friends [or lovers] into ·captivity [exile; 2 Kin. 23:36—24:7].
Then you will really be ashamed and ·disgraced [humiliated]
    because of all the ·wicked things [evil] you did.
23 You [C King Jehoiakim] live in Lebanon [C the palace was made of cedar from Lebanon],
    ·cozy [nestled] in your rooms of cedar.
But when your ·punishment [L pangs] comes, how you will groan
    like a woman ·giving birth to a baby [in labor]!

Judgment upon Jehoiachin

24 “As surely as I live,” says the Lord, “·Jehoiachin [L Coniah; C ruled 597 bc; 2 Kin. 24:8–17; 2 Chr. 36:9–10] son of Jehoiakim king of Judah, even if you were a signet ring on my right hand, I would still ·pull [tear] you off.
