Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Kings 24:6

_ _ Jehoiakim slept with his fathers — This phraseology can mean nothing more than that he died; for he was not buried with his royal ancestors; and whether he fell in battle, or his body was subjected to posthumous insults, he was, according to the prediction (Jeremiah 22:19), not honored with the rites of sepulture (Jeremiah 36:30).

_ _ Jehoiachin his son reigned in his stead — The very brief reign of this prince, which lasted only three months, during which he was a humble vassal of the Assyrians, is scarcely deserving to be taken into account, and therefore is in no way contradictory to the prophetic menace denounced against his father (Jeremiah 36:30).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Kings 24:1-7.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Kings 24:6

With his fathers — But it is not said, he was buried with them. No doubt the prophecy of Jeremiah was fulfilled, that he should not be lamented as his father was, but buried with the burial of an ass.

Jeremiah 22:18-19 Therefore thus saith the LORD concerning Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah; They shall not lament for him, [saying], Ah my brother! or, Ah sister! they shall not lament for him, [saying], Ah lord! or, Ah his glory! ... He shall be buried with the burial of an ass, drawn and cast forth beyond the gates of Jerusalem.

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 (
Jeremiah 36:30 Therefore thus saith the LORD of Jehoiakim king of Judah; He shall have none to sit upon the throne of David: and his dead body shall be cast out in the day to the heat, and in the night to the frost.
) says of Jehoiakim, "he shall have none to sit upon the throne of David."
