King Joiakim of Judea

Sort by:
King Joiakim of Judea: Son of King Josiah, brother and successor of King Jehoahaz. Reigned from 445-434 BCE. Joiakim disregarded the prophets’ exhortations to repent and their warnings of imminent exile. Instead, he imprisoned Jeremiah and burned a scroll of his prophecies. At first he was subservient to Babylon, the emerging superpower, but he eventually rebelled and was taken captive by King Nebuchadnezzar—together with Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah. Joiakim died en route to Babylon and was succeeded by his son Jehoichin.
