Jeremiah 22:22-24 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

22 The wind shall shepherd all your shepherds,
    your lovers shall go into exile.
Surely then you shall be ashamed and confounded
    because of all your wickedness.
23 You who dwell on Lebanon,
    who nest in the cedars,
How you shall groan when pains come upon you,
    like the pangs of a woman in childbirth!

24 As I live—oracle of the Lord—even if you, Coniah,[a] son of Jehoiakim, king of Judah, were a signet ring on my right hand, I would snatch you off.

Footnotes:

  1. 22:24 Coniah: a shortened form of Jeconiah, the name Jeremiah gives King Jehoiachin (cf. 24:1). A signet ring: the seal used by kings and other powerful figures—a symbol of their power and status—mounted in a ring worn constantly on the hand. The Lord says that even were Jehoiachin such a precious possession, he would reject him. Hg 2:23 uses the same imagery to signal the restoration of Zerubbabel. The words in Jer 22:24–30 date from the short three-month reign of Jehoiachin, before he was deported by Nebuchadnezzar.
