Albert Barnes' Notes on the Whole Bible

Comparing Jeremiah 22:19; Jeremiah 36:6, Jeremiah 36:30; and Ezekiel 19:8-9, it would seem that Nebuchadnezzar must in the fifth or sixth year after Jehoiakim‘s revolt have determined to go in person to Riblah, to direct operations, first against Tyre and then against Jerusalem. Jehoiakim was taken prisoner, and brought in chains to Nebuchadnezzar, who at first designed to convey him to Babylon, but afterward had him taken to Jerusalem, where he was executed. Afterward, when the Babylonians had withdrawn, the remains were collected and interred in the burying-place of Manasseh, so that the king ultimately “slept with his fathers” 2 Kings 24:6.

John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

Now the rest of the acts of Jehoiakim,.... In 2 Chronicles 36:8, it is added, "his abominations, and that which was found in him": which besides his rebellion against the king of Babylon, and his shedding innocent blood, is interpreted of marks made in his body for superstitious and idolatrous purposes; so Lyra.

Thomas Coke Commentary on the Holy Bible

2 Kings 24:5. The rest of the acts of Jehoiakim Jeremiah prophesied in the time of this prince, as did also Urijah; see Jeremiah 26:20; Jeremiah 26:24. About this time also lived the prophets Habakkuk, Zephaniah, and Nahum, who, being called to the prophetic office in the reign of Josiah, continued, very probably, to this time, because we find them prophesying the same things which Jeremiah did; namely, the destruction and desolation of Judah and Jerusalem for the many heinous sins they were guilty of. As to Habakkuk, neither the time in which he lived, nor the parents from whom he descended, are anywhere named in Scripture; but his prophesying the coming of the Chaldeans in the same manner with Jeremiah, gives us reason to think that he lived in the same time. Of Zephaniah it is expressly said, (chap. 1:) that he prophesied in the time of Josiah; and in his pedigree, which is also given us, his father's grandfather is called Hezekiah, whom some take for the king of Judah, and consequently reckon this prophet to have been of royal descent. As to Nahum, lastly, it is certain that he prophesied after the captivity of the ten tribes, and before that of the other two, which he foretold, chap. 1: Though, therefore, the Jews do generally place him in the reign of Manasseh, yet others choose to refer him to the latter part of Josiah's, as being nearer to the destruction of Nineveh and the Assyrian monarchy, to which several prophesies of his do principally relate.

George Haydock's Catholic Bible Commentary

Did. Paralipomenon, and his abominations which he wrought, and the things which were found in him. This St. Jerome, (Trad.) explains of certain diabolical marks on his body, shewing him to be devoted to the fiend Codonasar. Suchar are often found on magicians. (Menochius) --- Thus the priests of Baal cut themselves, 3 Kings xviii. 28. (Haydock)

Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers

(5) Now the rest of the acts of Jehoiakim . . .—Assuming with Hitzig that the passage Habakkuk 2:9-14 refers to him, we gather that he severely oppressed his people by his exactions of forced labour upon the defences of Jerusalem. Thenius concludes from the words, “that he may set his nest on high,” &c., that Jehoiakim strengthened and enlarged the fortress on Ophel erected by Manasseh. (Comp. also Jeremiah 22:13-17.)

Are they not written . . .—The last reference to this authority. Bähr concludes that the work did not extend beyond the reign of Jehoiakim.
