24 “As surely as I live,” says the Lord, “I will abandon you, Jehoiachin[a] son of Jehoiakim, king of Judah. Even if you were the signet ring on my right hand, I would pull you off.25 I will hand you over to those who seek to kill you, those you so desperately fear—to King Nebuchadnezzar[b] of Babylon and the mighty Babylonian[c] army.26 I will expel you and your mother from this land, and you will die in a foreign country, not in your native land.27 You will never again return to the land you yearn for.
28 “Why is this man Jehoiachin like a discarded, broken jar? Why are he and his children to be exiled to a foreign land? 29 O earth, earth, earth! Listen to this message from the Lord! 30 This is what the Lord says: ‘Let the record show that this man Jehoiachin was childless. He is a failure, for none of his children will succeed him on the throne of David to rule over Judah.’
22:24Hebrew Coniah, a variant spelling of Jehoiachin; also in 22:28.
