    SEV Biblia, Chapter 24:17

    Y el rey de Babilonia puso por rey a Matanías su tío en su lugar, y le mudó el nombre en el de Sedequías.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Kings 24:17

    Verse 17. Made Mattaniah his
    father's brother king in his stead] He was the son of Josiah, and brother to Jehoiakim.

    Changed his name to Zedekiah.] See the note on chap. xxiii. 34.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 17. And the king of Babylon made Mattaniah his father’s brother king in his stead , etc.] The third son of Josiah, ( 1 Chronicles 3:15) and changed his name to Zedekiah ; for the same reason the king of Egypt changed the name of Eliakim, ( 2 Kings 23:34) to signify his subjection to him; though some think it was to put him in mind of the justice of God, as the name signifies, that would overtake him, should he be treacherous to him, and rebel against him; so the Jewish Midrash.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 8-20 - Jehoiachin
    reigned but three months, yet long enough to show that he justly smarted for his fathers' sins, for he trod in their steps. Hi uncle was intrusted with the government. This Zedekiah was the last of the kings of Judah. Though the judgments of God upon the three king before him might have warned him, he did that which was evil, lik them. When those intrusted with the counsels of a nation act unwisely and against their true interest, we ought to notice the displeasure of God in it. It is for the sins of a people that God hides from them the things that belong to the public peace. And in fulfilling the secre purposes of his justice, the Lord needs only leave men to the blindnes of their own minds, or to the lusts of their own hearts. The gradua approach of Divine judgments affords sinners space for repentance, an believers leisure to prepare for meeting the calamity, while it show the obstinacy of those who will not forsake their sins __________________________________________________________________
