Message to Coniah

24 As I live,” says the Lord, (A)“though [a]Coniah the son of Jehoiakim, king of Judah, (B)were the [b]signet on My right hand, yet I would pluck you off; 25 (C)and I will give you into the hand of those who seek your life, and into the hand of those whose face you fear—the hand of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon and the hand of the [c]Chaldeans. 26 (D)So I will cast you out, and your mother who bore you, into another country where you were not born; and there you shall die. 27 But to the land to which they desire to return, there they shall not return.

28 “Is this man [d]Coniah a despised, broken idol—
(E)A vessel in which is no pleasure?
Why are they cast out, he and his descendants,
And cast into a land which they do not know?
