Adam Clarke Commentary

He did - evil - How astonishing is this! not one of them takes warning by the judgments of God, which fell on their sinful predecessors.

Albert Barnes' Notes on the Whole Bible

He did that which was evil - The character of Zedekiah seems to have been weak rather than wicked. Consult Jeremiah 34; 37: His chief recorded sins were:

(1) his refusal to be guided in his political conduct by Jeremiah‘s counsels, while nevertheless he admitted him to be a true Yahweh-prophet; and

(2) his infraction of the allegiance which he had sworn to Nebuchadnezzar.

George Haydock's Catholic Bible Commentary

Done. He was not deterred by his punishment, nor by the admonition of Jeremias, xxxvii. 2., and 2 Paralipomenon xxxvi. 12. The prophet informs us, that the priests and people defiled the temple of God. See Ezechiel viii., &c. (Calmet)

Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers

THE REIGN OF ZEDEKIAH, the last KING OF JUDAH (2 Kings 24:17 to 2 Kings 25:7; comp. 2 Chronicles 36:11 seq.; Jeremiah 52).

This section and the parallel in Jeremiah appear to have been derived from the same historical work. The text of Jeremiah is generally, though not always, the best.

(19) And he did that which was evil . . .—The evidence of the prophet Jeremiah should be compared with this statement. (See especially Jeremiah 24:8; Jeremiah 37:1-2; Jeremiah 38:5, and Comp. Note on 2 Chronicles 36:13.) The contemporary state of religion is vividly reflected in the pages of Ezekiel (2Kings viii—11); who, moreover, denounces Zedekiah’s breach of faith with the king of Babylon (Ezekiel 17:11-21).

According to all that Jehoiakim . . .—He is not compared with Jehoiachin, who only reigned three months.
