Jer 37:1

“Coniah.” Coniah is a shortened version of Jeconiah, the son of Jehoiakim, king of Judah (1 Chron. 3:16-17). He is also known as Jehoiachin (2 Kings 24:6, 8). He is listed in Matthew 1:11 in the genealogy of Mary. Jeconiah is known as Coniah only in Jeremiah 22:24, 28 and 37:1.

“depart, yes, depart.” The Hebrew text uses the verb “depart” twice for emphasis, using the figure of speech polyptoton. [For more on polyptoton and the way it is translated, see commentary on Gen. 2:16].

Jer 37:17

“in his house.” This could be translated, “in his palace,” because the king’s “house” was his palace, but the Hebrew is “house.”

Jer 37:18

“against your servants.” In this context, the king’s “servants” are his officials and military officers.

Jer 37:19

“And where are your prophets who prophesied to you.” This is very honest communication and very valuable to God. It is important that people have a clear choice between doing good and doing evil, if for no other reason than that they will have no excuse for their behavior on the Day of Judgment. By speaking boldly and plainly, Jeremiah gives Zedekiah a chance to make a godly decision and do the right thing. Alas, like so many other people, Zedekiah is too wishy-washy and fearful to make a godly decision.
