Don’t cry for the dead one [C the king] or ·be sad about [bemoan] him. But cry ·painfully for the king who is being taken [L for the one who goes] away [C into exile], because he will never return or see ·his homeland [L the land of his birth] again.
Don’t cry for the king who has died. Don’t cry loudly for him. But cry painfully for the king who is being taken away from here. Cry for him because he will never come back again. He will never see his homeland again.
Don’t weep over dead King Josiah. Don’t be sad because he’s gone. Instead, weep bitterly over King Jehoahaz. He was forced to leave his country. He will never return. He’ll never see his own land again.
Do not ye beweep him that is dead, neither wail ye on him by weeping; bewail ye him that goeth out, for he shall no more turn again, neither he shall see the land of his birth. (Do not ye weep for him who is dead, nor wail ye for him with weeping; but wail ye for him who goeth out, for he shall no more return, nor shall he see again the land of his birth.)
