Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 22:24

_ _ As I live — God’s most solemn formula of oath (Jeremiah 46:18; Jeremiah 4:2; Deuteronomy 32:40; 1 Samuel 25:34).

_ _ Coniah — Jeconiah or Jehoiachin. The contraction of the name is meant in contempt.

_ _ signet — Such ring seals were often of the greatest value (Song of Songs 8:6; Haggai 2:23). Jehoiachin’s popularity is probably here referred to.

_ _ right hand — the hand most valued.

_ _ I would pluck thee thence — (Compare Obadiah 1:4); on account of thy father’s sins, as well as thine own (2 Chronicles 36:9). There is a change here, as often in Hebrew poetry, from the third to the second person, to bring the threat more directly home to him. After a three months’ and ten days’ reign, the Chaldees deposed him. In Babylon, however, by God’s favor he was ultimately treated more kindly than other royal captives (Jeremiah 52:31-34). But none of his direct posterity ever came to the throne.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 22:20-30.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jeremiah 22:24

Coniah — By Coniah he means Jehoiakim, whose name was Jeconiah, 1 Chronicles 3:13, (for all Josiah's sons had two names, and so had his grandchild Jeconiah) here in contempt called Coniah. The signet — Tho' he were as dear as a signet, which every man keeps safe.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Jeremiah 22:24

[As] I live, saith the LORD, though (r) Coniah the son of Jehoiakim king of Judah were the signet upon my right hand, yet would I pluck thee from there;

(r) Who was called Jehoiachin or Jeconiah, whom he calls here Coniah in contempt who thought his kingdom could never depart from him, because he came of the stock of David, and therefore for the promise sake could not be taken from his house, but he abused God's promise and therefore was justly deprived of the kingdom.
