Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon had ·appointed [made king] Zedekiah son of Josiah to be king of Judah [C in 597 bc; he ruled until 586 bc]. Zedekiah took the place of ·Jehoiachin [L Coniah] son of Jehoiakim.
1 Zedekiah succeedeth Jeconiah. 3 He sendeth unto Jeremiah to pray for him. 12 Jeremiah going into the land of Benjamin is taken. 15 He is beaten and put in prison. And King Zedekiah the son of Josiah reigned for Coniah the son of Jehoiakim, whom Nebuchadnezzar king of Babel made king in the land of Judah.
King Zedekiah son of Josiah, a puppet king set on the throne by Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon in the land of Judah, was now king in place of Jehoiachin son of Jehoiakim. But neither he nor his officials nor the people themselves paid a bit of attention to the Message God gave by Jeremiah the prophet.
