2 Kings 24:6 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

Reign of Jehoiakim (cf. 2 Chronicles 36:5-8). - Jehoiakim reigned eleven years in the spirit of his ungodly forefathers (compare 2 Kings 23:37 with 2 Kings 23:32). Jeremiah represents him (2 Kings 22:13.) as a bad prince, who enriched himself by the unjust oppression of his people, "whose eyes and heart were directed upon nothing but upon gain, and upon innocent blood to shed it, and upon oppression and violence to do them" (compare 2 Kings 24:4 and Jeremiah 26:22-23). Josephus therefore describes him as τὴν φύσιν ἄδικος καὶ κακοῦργος, καὶ μήτε πρὸς Θεὸν ὅσιος, μήτε πρὸς ἀνθρώπους ἐπιεικής (Ant. x. 5, 2). The town of Rumah, from which his mother sprang, is not mentioned anywhere else, but it has been supposed to be identical with Aruma in the neighbourhood of Shechem (Judges 9:41).

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 (31:30) says of Jehoiakim, 'he shall have none to sit upon the throne of David.'
