Jeremiah 36:30

Context
36:30 So the Lord says concerning King Jehoiakim of Judah, “None of his line will occupy the throne of David. 1  His dead body will be thrown out to be exposed to scorching heat by day and frost by night. 2 

1 sn This prophesy was not “totally” fulfilled because his son Jehoiachin (Jeconiah) did occupy the throne for three months (2 Kgs 23:8). However, his rule was negligible and after his capitulation and exile to Babylon, he himself was promised that neither he nor his successors would occupy the throne of David (cf. Jer 22:30; and see the study notes on 22:24, 30).

2 sn Compare the more poetic prophecy in Jer 22:18-19 and see the study note on 22:19.
