24 “As I live,” declares Yahweh, “even though Coniah the son of Jehoiakim king of Judah were a signet ring on My right hand, yet I would pull you off; 25 and I will give you over into the hand of those who are seeking your life, indeed, into the hand of those whom you dread, even into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon and into the hand of the Chaldeans. 26 I will hurl you and your mother who bore you into another land—there you were not born, but there you will die. 27 But as for the land to which their soul desires to return, they will not return to it. 28
Is this man Coniah a despised, shattered jar?
Or is he an undesirable vessel?
Why have he and his seed been hurled out
And cast into a land that they had not known? 29
O land, land, land,
Hear the word of Yahweh! 30 Thus says Yahweh,
‘Write this man down childless,
A man who will not succeed in his days;
For no man of his seed will succeed
Sitting on the throne of David
Or ruling again in Judah.’”
