Commentary Critical and Explanatory on the Whole Bible

he did that which was evil in the sight of the Lord — Untaught by experience, and deaf to the prophetic warnings, he pursued the evil courses which had brought so many disasters upon the royal family as well as the people of Judah. This bad character is figuratively but strongly depicted (Ezekiel 19:5-7).

Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers

(9) And he did that which was evil . . .—Ezekiel 19:5-9 refers to him, according to Keil and Ewald; but Thenius asks how, in his position, and during his brief reign of ninety (?) days, a considerable number of which must probably be allowed for the siege, he could possibly do what is there described. Hitzig refers the passage to Zedekiah; and so Thenius. Josephus calls Jehoiachin “naturally good and just;” probably misunderstanding the words of Jeremiah 22:24; Jeremiah 22:28.
