And Jehoiakim lieth with his fathers, and Jehoiachin his son reigneth in his stead.
2 Kings 24:6 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Jehoiachin his son - As this man reigned only three months and was a mere vassal to the Babylonians, his reign is scarcely to be reckoned; and therefore Jeremiah says of Jehoiakim, He shall have none to sit upon the throne of David, Jeremiah 36:30, for at that time it belonged to the king of Babylon, and Jehoiachin was a mere viceroy or governor. Jehoiachin is called Jechonias in Matthew 1:11.
