As I live,saith the LORD, though Coniah the son of Jehoiakimking of Judah were the signet upon my righthand, yet would I pluck thee thence;
And I will give thee into the hand of them that seek thy life, and into the hand of them whose face thou fearest , even into the hand of Nebuchadrezzarking of Babylon, and into the hand of the Chaldeans.26
And I will cast thee out , and thy mother that bare thee, into anothercountry, where ye were not born ; and there shall ye die .
But to the land whereunto they desirea to return , thither shall they not return .
Is this manConiah a despisedbrokenidol? is he a vessel wherein is no pleasure? wherefore are they cast out , he and his seed, and are cast into a land which they know not?
O earth,earth,earth,hear the word of the LORD.30
Thus saith the LORD,Write ye this manchildless, a man that shall not prosper in his days: for no man of his seed shall prosper , sitting upon the throne of David, and ruling any more in Judah.
