son of Josiah, king of Judah, who succeeded Josiah his father as king: "He has left this place-he will never return here again,
Jeremiah 22:11 In-Context

Do not weep for the dead; do not mourn for him. Weep bitterly for the one who has gone away, for he will never return again and see his native land.
For this is what the Lord says concerning Shallum son of Josiah, king of Judah, who succeeded Josiah his father as king: "He has left this place-he will never return here again,
but he will die in the place where they deported him, never seeing this land again."
Woe for the one who builds his palace through unrighteousness, his upper rooms through injustice, who makes his fellow man serve without pay and will not give him his wages,
