Expository Notes of Dr. Thomas Constable - Jeremiah 22:24-30

Prophecies about King Jehoiachin (Coniah) 22:24-30This section contains two prophecies about this king (Jeremiah 22:24-30). The historical setting is the three-month reign of eighteen-year-old Jehoiachin in 598-597 B.C. (cf. 2 Kings 24:8-17). Coniah was a shortened form of Jeconiah (cf. Jeremiah 24:1; Jeremiah 27:20; Jeremiah 28:4; Jeremiah 29:2), the same man. read more

Expository Notes of Dr. Thomas Constable - Jeremiah 22:26-27

But Yahweh would not reluctantly hand over Coniah; He would hurl him into a foreign country where he would die. His mother, the powerful queen mother, Nehushta, would go with him (cf. Jeremiah 13:18; 2 Kings 24:8; 2 Kings 24:11-12). They would not be able to return to their native land (cf. Jeremiah 52:31-34; 2 Kings 25:27-30). Mordecai and Ezekiel traveled to Babylon in the same group of exiles (Esther 2:5-7; Ezekiel 1:1-2). read more

John Dummelow's Commentary on the Bible - Jeremiah 22:1-30

1-9. Call to amendment of life.1. Go down] The king’s house was on lower ground than the Temple: cp. Jeremiah 36:12. 3. The reference is to the special crimes of Jehoiakim more fully stated in Jeremiah 36:13: cp. 2 Kings 23:35. He oppressed his people in order that though paying tribute to Necho he might yet build himself sumptuous palaces. Neither shed innocent blood] For his sins in this respect cp. Jeremiah 26:20. 4. Cp. Jeremiah 17:25. 6. Gilead, with its balm (Jeremiah 8:22) and its flocks... read more

Charles John Ellicott

Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers - Jeremiah 22:26

(26) Thy mother that bare thee.—The youth of Coniah probably led to his mother assuming the authority of a queen-regent. She directed the policy of his brief reign, and shared in his downfall. Her name, Nehushta, is given in 2 Kings 24:8, and in Jeremiah 29:2 she is named as the gebirah, the “great lady “or” princess-queen.” read more

Expositor's Dictionary of Texts - Jeremiah 22:1-30

The Woes of the Unjust Jeremiah 22:13 The whole law is contained in these words, 'Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and thy neighbour as thyself'. These two parts cannot be separated. God places us among our own kind, and our character cannot be formed and our souls saved without doing justly and loving mercy, while we walk humbly with our God. If we are servants, we are to do honest work for our masters; and if we are masters, we are to give equitable wages to our servants.... read more

James Gray

James Gray's Concise Bible Commentary - Jeremiah 22:1-30

MESSAGES IN ZEDEKIAH ’S REIGN These chapters furnish a convenient unit, as they are apparently a group of discourses delivered in Zedekiah’s reign the king of the captivity period. The first, and one of the most interesting, is that concerning the siege (chap. 21). Note the occasion (Jeremiah 21:1-2 ) and observe that Pashur was not he of the last lesson. The siege of Jerusalem by Nebuchadnezzar had begun and the king of Judah hoped the prophet would have some encouraging word from God for... read more

Joseph Parker

The People's Bible by Joseph Parker - Jeremiah 22:1-30

The Coming One Jeremiah 22:0 , Jeremiah 23:0 The particular reference is to Josiah, on the occasion of whose death Jeremiah had composed a grand and pathetic dirge. It is supposed from 2Ch 35:25 that this dirge was repeated annually in memory of Josiah's death. The injunction of the text puts an end to this annual commemoration. The weeping is forbidden in the case of Josiah, but it is ordered to continue in the case of Jehoahaz ( Jehovah sustains .) Jehoahaz was probably a name assumed by... read more

Robert Hawker

Hawker's Poor Man's Commentary - Jeremiah 22:20-28

We have here a similar prediction against Coniah: and a very awful one it is. He is to be made a captive, and to die in a foreign land, even in a land of all others he most dreaded and hated. And what sums up the finishing stroke of his misery. He is to be forsaken of the Lord. Some have thought, that as we do not read of any Coniah, among the Kings: but Jeconiah the son of Jehoiakim; that the alteration of his name was to show the Lord's displeasure. See 2 Kings 24:8 . which in the margin of... read more
