2 Kings 23:36-37New American Standard Bible (NASB)
36 Jehoiakim was twenty-five years old when he became king, and he reigned for eleven years in Jerusalem; and his mother’s name was Zebidah the daughter of Pedaiah of Rumah.37 He did evil in the sight of the Lord, in accordance with all that his forefathers had done.

Messages about the Kings
13 “Woe to him who builds his house without righteousness, And his upstairs rooms without justice, Who uses his neighbor’s services without pay And does not give him his wages, 14 Who says, ‘I will build myself a large house With spacious upstairs rooms, And cut out its windows, [a]Paneling it with cedar and painting it[b]bright red.’ 15 Do you become a king because you are competing in cedar? Did your father not eat and drink And do justice and righteousness? Then it was well for him. 16 He pled the cause of the afflicted and the poor, Then it was well. Is that not what it means to know Me?” Declares the Lord. 17 “But your eyes and your heart Are intent only upon your own dishonest gain, And on shedding innocent blood, And on practicing oppression and extortion.”
18 Therefore this is what the Lord says regarding Jehoiakim the son of Josiah, king of Judah:
“They will not mourn for him: ‘Oh, my brother!’ or, ‘Oh, sister!’ They will not mourn for him: ‘Oh, for the master!’ or, ‘Oh, for his splendor!’ 19 He will be buried with a donkey’s burial, Dragged off and thrown out beyond the gates of Jerusalem.
