Jeremiah 22:24-30 World English Bible (WEB)

24 As I live, says Yahweh, though Coniah the son of Jehoiakim king of Judah were the signet on my right hand, yet would I pluck you there; 25 and I will give you into the hand of those who seek your life, and into the hand of them of whom you are afraid, even into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, and into the hand of the Chaldeans. 26 I will cast you out, and your mother who bore you, into another country, where you were not born; and there you will die. 27 But to the land t which their soul longs to return, there shall they not return. 28 Is this man Coniah a despised broken vessel? is he a vessel in which no one delights? why are they cast out, he and his offspring,[a] and are cast into the land which they don’t know? 29 O earth, earth, earth, hear Yahweh’s word. 30 Yahweh says, Write you this man childless, a man who shall not prosper in his days; for no more shall a man of his offspring[b] prosper, sitting on David’s throne, and ruling in Judah.

Jeremiah 22:24-30 New International Version (NIV)

24 “As surely as I live,” declares the Lord, “even if you, Jehoiachin[a] son of Jehoiakim king of Judah, were a signet ring on my right hand, I would still pull you off. 25 I will deliver you into the hands of those who want to kill you, those you fear—Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon and the Babylonians.[b] 26 I will hurl you and the mother who gave you birth into another country, where neither of you was born, and there you both will die. 27 You will never come back to the land you long to return to.”

28 Is this man Jehoiachin a despised, broken pot,
    an object no one wants?
Why will he and his children be hurled out,
    cast into a land they do not know?
29 O land, land, land,
    hear the word of the Lord!
30 This is what the Lord says:
“Record this man as if childless,
    a man who will not prosper in his lifetime,
for none of his offspring will prosper,
    none will sit on the throne of David
    or rule anymore in Judah.”
