Matthew Henry's Complete Commentary - Jeremiah 22:20-30

This prophecy seems to have been calculated for the ungracious inglorious reign of Jeconiah, or Jehoiachin, the son of Jehoiakim, who succeeded him in the government, reigned but three months, and was then carried captive to Babylon, where he lived many years, Jer. 52:31. We have, in these verses, a prophecy, I. Of the desolations of the kingdom, which were now hastening on apace, Jer. 22:20-23. Jerusalem and Judah are here spoken to, or the Jewish state as a single person, and we have it here... read more

John Gills Exposition of the Bible Commentary - Jeremiah 22:26

And I will cast thee out ,.... Out of his palace, out of the city of Jerusalem, and out of the land of Judea: and thy mother that bare thee ; who very probably was a bad woman, and had brought up her son in an evil way, and had led him on and encouraged him in it, by her own example, and had been a partner with him in his sins: her name was Nehushta, a daughter of Elnathan of Jerusalem; and as it was here predicted of her, so it was accomplished, 2 Kings 24:8 ; it is very likely... read more

John Calvin

John Calvin's Commentary on the Bible - Jeremiah 22:26

Verse 26 Here, again, the Prophet confirms what he had said of the severe vengeance which God would take on Jeconiah. And though he was in his thirty-seventh year brought out of prison, and admitted unto the royal table, among other princes, he yet died in exile; and perhaps it would have been better for him to continue in prison till his death than to have been corrupted by allurements when he became one of the princes, for he thus defiled himself. However this may have been, he died in exile... read more

The Pulpit Commentary - Jeremiah 22:26

Cast thee out . The Hebrew is stronger—"hurl thee" (comp. Isaiah 22:17 , Hebrew). And thy mother ; i.e. the queen-mother Nehushta (comp. Jeremiah 29:2 ; 2 Kings 24:8 ). She seems to have been particularly influential (see introduction to Jeremiah 13:1-27 .) read more

Joseph Benson's Commentary of the Old and New Testaments - Jeremiah 22:24-28

Jeremiah 22:24-28. As I live, saith the Lord, though Coniah were the signet, or, rather, the ring, upon my right hand By Coniah he means Jehoiachin, whose name was Jeconiah, 1 Chronicles 3:16, (for all Josiah’s sons had two names, and so had his grandchild Jeconiah,) here, in contempt, called Coniah; yet would I pluck thee thence Though he were never so near and dear to me, as dear as a signet, or ring, which every man keeps safe, yet his wickedness would make him forfeit all my favour... read more

Bridgeway Bible Commentary - Jeremiah 22:24-30

Concerning Jehoiachin (22:24-30)On Jehoiakim’s death, his eighteen year old son Jehoiachin (also known Jeconiah, or Coniah) was made king. He was doomed to a short reign of only three months followed by a long captivity in Babylon. Other members of the royal family would also go into captivity, along with many of the leading citizens of Jerusalem (24-27; cf. 2 Kings 24:8-15). Jehoiachin died in a foreign country, and no son of his became king after him (28-30; but see also 2 Kings 25:27-30). read more
