24 "As surely as I live," says the Lord, "Jehoiachin son of Jehoiakim king of Judah, even if you were a signet ring on my right hand, I would still pull you off.
25 I will hand you over to Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon and to the Babylonians -- those people you fear because they want to kill you.
26 I will throw you and your mother into another country. Neither of you was born there, but both of you will die there.
27 They will want to come back, but they will never be able to return."
28 Jehoiachin is like a broken pot someone threw away; he is like something no one wants. thrown out and sent into a foreign land?
29 Land, land, land of Judah, hear the word of the Lord!
30 This is what the Lord says: "Write this down in the record about Jehoiachin: He is a man without children, a man who will not be successful in his lifetime. And none of his descendants will be successful; none will sit on the throne of David or rule in Judah."
