🔼The name Jehoiakim in the Bible
Jehoiakim is the son and successor of king Josiah of Judah, and his mother is called Zebidah. His name was actually Eliakim but Pharaoh Neco, who had deposed and imprisoned king Josiah, changed it to Jehoiakim (2 Kings 23:34-36, spelled יהויקם in Jeremiah 27:1 only). And if his subjection to the Pharaoh wasn't enough, king Nebuchadnezzar swoops in and subdues Jehoiakim for another three years. His son Jehoiachin assumes the throne after he dies, which happened after he was taken to Babylon according to 2 Chronicles 36:6 and Daniel 1:2, although the prophet Jeremiah foretold for him a donkey's burial out of the gates of Jerusalem (22:19).
Jeremiah foretold some more things too, and had Baruch pen them down and read them in public. King Jehoiakim became so upset by this that he cut Jeremiah's scroll to pieces and burned it (36:23).
