19 “Yes, I will drive you out of office,” says the Lord. “I will pull you down from your high position.20 And then I will call my servant Eliakim son of Hilkiah to replace you.21 I will dress him in your royal robes and will give him your title and your authority. And he will be a father to the people of Jerusalem and Judah.22 I will give him the key to the house of David—the highest position in the royal court. When he opens doors, no one will be able to close them; when he closes doors, no one will be able to open them.23 He will bring honor to his family name, for I will drive him firmly in place like a nail in the wall.24 They will give him great responsibility, and he will bring honor to even the lowliest members of his family.[a]”
25 But the Lord of Heaven’s Armies also says: “The time will come when I will pull out the nail that seemed so firm. It will come out and fall to the ground. Everything it supports will fall with it. I, the Lord, have spoken!”
22:24Hebrew They will hang on him all the glory of his father’s house: its offspring and offshoots, all its lesser vessels, from the bowls to all the jars.
