As I live, says the Lord Yahweh, surely in the place where the king lives who made him king, whose oath he despised and whose covenant he broke, even with him in the midst of Babylon he will die. Bible see other translations

“the king lives who made him king.” Nebuchadnezzar, who lives in Babylon, carried away king Jehoiachin and made Zedekiah king of Judah instead of Jehoiachin. Ezekiel foretold that Zedekiah would die in Babylon (Ezek. 12:13).
