    Coniah in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE ko-ni'-a (konyahu, "Jah is creating"): A form of the name Jehoiachin, found in Jer 22:24,28; 37:1.

    Coniah in Wikipedia (Hebrew: יְכָנְיָה‎ [jəχonjoː], meaning "God will fortify (his people)"; Greek: Ιεχονιας; Latin: Joachin), also known as Coniah and as Jehoiachin (Hebrew: יְהֹויָכִין‎ [jəhoːjɔːxiːn]; Greek: Ιεχονιας; Latin: Joachin), was a king of Judah.

Babylonian records, called Jehoiachin's Rations Tablets, written in Cuneiform and dating to 592 BC mention him and his five sons as recipients of food ration in Babylon,[4] though it would have been difficult for him to have had five sons in the time frame attributed to him. Jeconiah was a contemporary of the prophets Jeremiah and Ezekiel...
