Bible Names H-M: Jehoiachin


Jehoiachin in Easton's Bible Dictionary succeeded his father Jehoiakin (B.C. 599) when only eight years of age, and reigned for one hundred days (2 Chr. 36:9). He is also called Jeconiah (Jer. 24:1; 27:20, etc.), and Coniah (22:24; 37:1). He was succeeded by his uncle, Mattaniah = Zedekiah (q.v.). He was the last direct heir to the Jewish crown. He was carried captive to Babylon by Nebuchadnezzar, along with the flower of the nobility, all the leading men in Jerusalem, and a great body of the general population, some thirteen thousand in all (2 Kings 24:12-16; Jer. 52:28). After an imprisonment of thirty-seven years (Jer. 52:31, 33), he was liberated by Evil-merodach, and permitted to occupy a place in the king's household and sit at his table, receiving "every day a portion until the day of his death, all the days of his life" (52:32-34).

Jehoiachin in Smiths Bible Dictionary (whom Jehovah has appointed), son of Jehoiakim, and for three months and ten days king of Judah. (B.C. 597.) At his accession Jerusalem was quite defenseless, and unable to offer any resistance to the army which Nebuchadnezzar sent to besiege it. 2Ki 24:10,11 In a very short time Jehoiachin surrendered at discretion; and he, and the queen-mother, and all his servants, captains and officers, came out and gave themselves up to Nebuchadnezzar, who carried them, with the harem and the eunuchs, to Babylon. Jer 29:2; Eze 17:12; 19:9 There he remained a prisoner, actually in prison and wearing prison garments, for thirty-six years, viz., till the death of Nebuchadnezzar, when Evilmerodach, succeeding to the throne of Babylon, brought him out of prison, and made him sit at this own table. The time of his death is uncertain.

Jehoiachin in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE je-hoi'-a-kin (yehoyakhin, "Yahweh will uphold"; called also "Jeconiah" in 1 Ch 3:16; Jer 24:1; yekhonyah, "Yahweh will be steadfast," and "Coniah" in Jer 22:24,28; konyahu, "Yahweh has upheld him"; 'Ioakeim): A king of Judah; son and successor of Jehoiakim; reigned three months and surrendered to Nebuchadnezzar; was carried to Babylon, where, after being there 37 years a prisoner, he died. 1. Sources: The story of his reign is told in 2 Ki 24:8-16, and more briefly in 2 Ch 36:9-10. Then, after the reign of his successor Zedekiah and the final deportation are narrated, the account of his release from prison 37 years afterward and the honor done him is given as the final paragraph of 2 Ki (25:27- 30). The same thing is told at the end of the Book of Jer (52:31-34). Neither for this reign nor for the succeeding is there the usual reference to state annals; these seem to have been discontinued after Jehoiakim. In Jer 22:24-30 there is a final pronouncement on this king, not so much upon the man as upon his inevitable fate, and a prediction that no descendant of his shall ever have prosperous rule in Judah...

Jehoiachin in Wikipedia Jeconiah (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. According to 2 Kings 24:8 , he became king upon the death of his father, Jehoiakim, at the age of eighteen and reigned for only three months and ten days.[1] However, most Hebrew versions, some Septuagint manuscripts and Syriac versions of 2 Chronicles 36:9 give the age when he became king as eight, compared with other versions which give it as eighteen (e.g., 2 Chronicles 36:9 ). The Vulgate has the discrepancy, which the Challenor note in the Douay-Rheims Bible reconciles the discrepancy: "He was associated by his father to the kingdom, when he was but eight years old; but after his father's death, when he reigned alone, he was eighteen years old."[2] Edwin Thiele dates Jeconiah's short reign to 598/597 BC.[3] He was deposed by the Babylonians at the end of the first siege of Jerusalem by Nebuchadnezzar II in 597 BC, after which Jeconiah, his household, and many of the elite and craftsmen of Judah were exiled to Babylon. 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...
