24 (A)“As I live, declares the Lord, though Coniah the son of Jehoiakim, king of Judah, were (B)the signet ring on my right hand, yet I would tear you off 25 and (C)give you (D)into the hand of those who seek your life, into the hand of those of whom you are afraid, even into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon and into the hand of the Chaldeans. 26 (E)I will hurl you and (F)the mother who bore you into another country, where you were not born, and there you shall die. 27 But to the land to which they will long to return, there they shall not return.”

28 Is this man (G)Coniah a despised, broken pot,
    a (H)vessel no one cares for?
Why are he and his children hurled and cast
    into a (I)land that they do not know?
29 (J)O land, land, land,
    hear the word of the Lord!
30 Thus says the Lord:
“Write this man down as (K)childless,
    a man who shall not succeed in his days,
(L)for none of his offspring shall succeed
    (M)in sitting on the throne of David
    and ruling again in Judah.”
