But just listen to what the Lord has to say about 1 the king who occupies David’s throne and all your fellow countrymen who are still living in this city of Jerusalem 2 and were not carried off into exile with you.
but this is what the LORD says about the king who sits on David’s throne and all the people who remain in this city, your countrymen who did not go with you into exile—
for thus says the LORD concerning the king who sits on the throne of David, and concerning all the people who dwell in this city, your brothers who did not go with you into exile—
But this is what the LORD says about the king who sits on David’s throne and all those still living here in Jerusalem––your relatives who were not exiled to Babylon.
GOD is setting the record straight: As for the king still sitting on David's throne and all the people left in Jerusalem who didn't go into exile with you, they're facing bad times.
For this is what the Lord has said about the king who is seated on the seat of David’s kingdom, and about all the people living in this town, your countrymen who have not gone out with you as prisoners;
Thus says the LORD concerning the king who sits on the throne of David, and concerning all the people who live in this city, your kinsfolk who did not go out with you into exile:
therefore thus says the LORD concerning the king who sits on the throne of David, concerning all the people who dwell in this city, and concerning your brethren who have not gone out with you into captivity––

of the king
upon the throne
and of all the people
in this city
[and] of your brethren
that are not gone forth
with you into captivity
