2 Kings 24:6

2 Kings 24:6

So Jehoiakim slept with his fathers
He died as they did, but was not buried with them, and indeed had no burial at all, according to the prophecy of Jeremiah, ( Jeremiah 22:18 Jeremiah 22:19 ) for, falling into the hands of the king of Babylon, he was bound in chains, in order to be carried to Babylon, but died as soon as he came out of Jerusalem, at the gates of which he was cast, and had no burial, ( 2 Chronicles 36:6 ) . At this time also some of the vessels of the temple were carried away, and put in the idol's temple at Babylon, ( 2 Chronicles 36:7 ) ( Jeremiah 27:16 ) , and Eupolemus F16 says, that whatever gold, silver, and brass, were in the temple, were carried away:

and Jehoiachin his son reigned in his stead;
called sometimes Jeconiah, and by contempt Coniah, ( Jeremiah 22:24 Jeremiah 22:28 ) .
