Is this man Coniah a despised broken pot?
Is he a vessel that no one wants?
Why are he and his seed to be hurled out,
and cast into a land that they do not know? Bible

“are he and his seed to be hurled out.” The Hebrew texts put the verbs in the past tense (the perfect tense) and they are prophetic perfects, expressing something that will be a future reality (Keil and Delitzsch Old Testament Commentary). [For more on the prophetic perfect, see commentary on Eph. 2:6].
