[ I will again be working through the Scriptures from Genesis to Revelation. I will be adding links, resources, images, and the like, upgrading the former work-through which began with the 2013-10-12 posting which can be found, along with the full Genesis to Revelation postings, in the Archive Page. Postings will be at midnight Eastern Time, as I am able. However, no chapters will be skipped, even though a posting may be late. And all postings will be housed in the Archive Page. ]

     Explanation: In Jeremiah 22, the LORD told the king of Judah and his servants that chariots and horses were coming - either the chariots and horses of the Davidic kings of Judah, coming in glory, or the chariots and horses of foreign destroyers depending on whether or not they were just and righteous deliverers of the oppressed, the stranger, the fatherless, the widow, and the innocent (1-5).
     If not, though they were pleasant to him, he would make them desolate (6-7).
     Passers by will wonder why the LORD has done these things to his people; and the answer will be "Because they have forsaken the covenant of the LORD their God, and worshiped other gods, and served them" (8-9).
     More to be pitied are the exiles who will never again see their native land, than the dead (10).
     The LORD says not to mourn for king Shallum because he built his glorious cedar house by unrighteousness, by withholding wages, by covetousness, by shedding innocent blood, by oppression, and by violence (11-17).
     Moreover, the LORD says that king Jehoiakim also will not be lamented but will be drug out of the city and buried ingloriously like a dead donkey (18-19).
     The LORD calls upon Judah to cry for her dead lovers because she has failed to listen from her youth, so she will become desolate and pain like birth pangs will come upon her (20-23).
     The LORD will give the next king, king Coniah, into the hand of those who seek his life; and he and his mother will die in a strange land (24-27).
     Moreover, King Coniah will die childless with no successor to sit upon the throne of David (28-30).

PLEASE NOTE: Use the resources on this and other sites thoughtfully, particularly the commentaries and encyclopedias. I have attempted to list conservative, scholarly resources. However, some providers use liberal or liberal-influenced commentaries such as the Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges (in Bible Hub). Such commentaries are undoubtedly included by the provider for the wealth of useful information and comments which they provide. By consulting several commentaries, it should be fairly easy to sort out the wheat from the chaff. If, however, you would like personal assistance, write to me at AD LIB ARTS EMAIL.

     1 Thus saith the LORD; Go down to the house of the king of Judah, and speak there [this] -- [this] word, 2 And say, Hear the word of the LORD, O king of Judah, that sittest upon the throne of David, thou, and thy servants, and thy people that enter in by these gates: 3 Thus saith the LORD; Execute ye judgment and righteousness, and deliver the spoiled out of the hand of the oppressor: and do no wrong, do no violence to the stranger, the fatherless, nor the widow, neither shed innocent blood in this place. 4 For if ye do [this] -- [this] thing indeed, then shall there enter in by the gates of this house kings sitting upon the throne of David, riding in chariots and on horses, he, and his servants, and his people. 5 But if ye will not hear [this] -- [these] words, I swear by myself, saith the LORD, that this house shall become a desolation. 6 For thus saith the LORD unto the king's house of Judah;

Thou art Gilead unto me,
and the head of Lebanon:
yet surely I will make thee a wilderness,
and cities which are not inhabited.
7 And I will prepare destroyers against thee,
every one with his weapons:
and they shall cut down thy choice cedars,
and cast them into the fire.

     8 And many nations shall pass by this city, and they shall say every man to his neighbour, Wherefore hath the LORD done thus unto this great city? 9 Then they shall answer, Because they have forsaken [this] the covenant of the LORD their God, and worshipped other gods, and served them.

10 Weep ye not for the dead,
neither bemoan him:
but weep sore [weep weeping] for him that goeth away:
for he shall return no more,
nor see [this] his native country.

     11 For thus saith the LORD touching Shallum the son of Josiah king of Judah, which reigned instead of Josiah his father, which went forth out of this place; He shall not return thither any more: 12 But he shall die in the place whither they have led him captive, and shall see this land no more.

13 Woe unto him that buildeth his house by unrighteousness [in not righteousness],
and his chambers by wrong [in not judgment;
that useth his neighbour's service without wages,
and giveth him not for his work;
14 That saith,
I will build me a wide house
and large chambers,
and cutteth him out windows;
and it is cieled with cedar,
and painted with vermilion.
15 Shalt thou reign,
because thou closest thyself in cedar?
did not thy father eat
and drink,
and do judgment
and justice,
and then it was well with him?
16 He judged the cause of the poor and needy;
then it was well with him:
was not this to know me?
saith the LORD.
17 But thine eyes
and thine heart
are not but for thy covetousness,
and for to shed innocent blood,
and for oppression,
and for violence,
to do it.

     18 Therefore thus saith the LORD concerning Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah;

They shall not lament for him,
Ah my brother!
or, Ah sister!
they shall not lament for him,
saying, Ah lord!
or, Ah his glory!
19 He shall be buried
with the burial of an ass,
and cast forth
beyond the gates of Jerusalem.

20 Go up to Lebanon,
and cry;
and lift up thy voice in Bashan,
and cry from the passages:
for all thy lovers are destroyed.
21 I spake unto thee in thy prosperity;
but thou saidst,
I will not hear.
This hath been thy manner from thy youth,
that thou obeyedst not my voice.
22 The wind shall eat up all thy pastors,
and thy lovers shall go into captiviy:
surely then shalt thou be ashamed and confounded
for all thy wickedness.
23 O inhabitant of Lebanon,
that makest thy nest in the cedars,
how gracious shalt thou be
when pangs come upon thee,
the pain as of a woman in travail!

     24 As I live, saith the LORD, though Coniah the son of Jehoiakim king of Judah were the signet upon my right hand, yet would I pluck thee thence; 25 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 Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon, and into the hand of the Chaldeans. 26 And I will cast thee out, [this] -- and thy mother that bare thee, into another country, where ye were not born; and there shall ye die. 27 But to the land whereunto they desire [they lift {this} their soul] to return, thither shall they not return.

28 Is this man Coniah a despised broken idol?
is he a vessel wherein is no [nothing of] pleasure?
wherefore are they cast out,
he and his seed,
and are cast into a land which they know not?
29 O earth, earth, earth,
hear the word of the LORD.
30 Thus saith the LORD,
Write ye [this] -- [this] man childless,
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.
