And I will bring again to this place Jeconiah the son of
Jehoiakim king of Judah
This he knew would please the people, who looked upon Zedekiah only as a deputy of the king of Babylon, and not properly their king; but Jeconiah, as he is here called; and he knew that Zedekiah dared not resent this, but was obliged to feigned a desire of Jeconiah's return, though otherwise not agreeable to him: with all the captives of Judah that went into Babylon, saith the Lord;
the princes, officers, and others, that should be living at the time fixed: for I will break the yoke of the king of Babylon;
weaken his power over other nations, and particularly deliver the king of Judah from his bondage, and from subjection to him.
