his
Heb. the hand of his.

Verse 3
Surely at the commandment of the LORD came this upon Judah, to remove them out of his sight, for the sins of Manasseh, according to all that he did;
Surely
18:25; Genesis 50:20; 2 Chronicles 24:24; 25:16; Isaiah 10:5,6; 45:7; 46:10,11; Amos 3:6

for the innocent
21:16; Numbers 35:33; Deuteronomy 19:10; Jeremiah 2:34; 19:4
he filled
Psalms 106:38
which
Jeremiah 15:1,2; Lamentations 3:42; Ezekiel 33:25

Verse 5
Now the rest of the acts of Jehoiakim, and all that he did, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah?
the rest
2 Chronicles 36:8; Jeremiah 22:13-17; 26:1-36

Verse 6
So Jehoiakim slept with his fathers: and Jehoiachin his son reigned in his stead.
A. M. 3405. B.C. 599. slept As Jehoiakim was "buried with the burial of an ass," by being "drawn and cast forth beyond the gates of Jerusalem," without internment, the expression "slept with his fathers," can only mean that the died, or slept the sleep of death. In the East, a body exposed during the night would be a prey to wild animals; if any of it were left till the morning, the carnivorous birds would devour it
2 Chronicles 36:6,8; Jeremiah 22:18,19; 36:30
Jehoiachin
As this man reigned only three months, and was a mere vassal of the king of Babylon, his reign is scarcely reckoned; and therefore Jeremiah (ch. 31:30) says of Jehoiakim, "he shall have none to sit upon the throne of David."

Verse 7
And the king of Egypt came not again any more out of his land: for the king of Babylon had taken from the river of Egypt unto the river Euphrates all that pertained to the king of Egypt.

eighteen years
In the parallel place, he is said to be only eight years old; but this must be a mistake, for we find that having reigned only three months, he was carried captive to Babylon, and there had wives; and had he been of such a tender age, it could scarcely have been said that, as a king, "he did that which was evil in the sight of the Lord."
2 Chronicles 36:9

At that time the servants of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came up against Jerusalem, and the city was besieged.

his father's brother
He was son of Josiah, brother to Jehoiakim, and uncle of Jehoiachin.
1 Chronicles 3:15,16; 2 Chronicles 36:10
changed
The change of name was to shew Nebuchadnezzar's supremacy, and that Zedekiah was only his vassal or viceroy. The custom of changing names, we are assured by travellers, still exists in the East.
23:34; 2 Chronicles 36:4

Verse 18
Zedekiah was twenty and one years old when he began to reign, and he reigned eleven years in Jerusalem. And his mother's name was Hamutal, the daughter of Jeremiah of Libnah.
