    Clarke's Commentary on Jeremiah 22:30

    Write ye this man childless - Though he had seven sons, 1 Chronicles 3:17, yet having no successor, he is to be entered on the genealogical tables as one without children for none of his posterity ever sat on the throne of David.

    Barnes' Notes on Jeremiah 22:30

    Childless - No child to sit on David's throne. See 1 Chronicles 3:17 note.

    Jeconiah was the last king of David's line. His uncle indeed actually reigned after him, but perished with his sons long before Jeconiah's death (literally 10): and yet from so dead a trunk, from a family so utterly fallen, that spiritual King came forth whose name is "Yahweh our righteousness" Jeremiah 23:5-6.
