AD 1849
Uncle, the third son of Josias, who was placed on the throne. (Haydock) The eldest, (Menochius) called Johanan, seems to have died in his youth. (Calmet) Sedecias means, "the justice of God "(Tirinus) as Nabuchodonosor had adjured him, or made him swear by God; (2 Paralipomenon xxxvi. 15.; Haydock) and thus insinuated, that, if he proved faithless, he should feel the effects of God's justice, as it happened. (Tirinus)
