And the prince that is among them shall bear upon his shoulder in the twilight, and shall go forth: they shall dig through the wall to carry out thereby: he shall cover his face, that he see not the ground with his eyes.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

12:12 the prince that is among them. The specific prophecy of Ezekiel 12:12-13 applied particularly to Zedekiah. He is evidently called a “prince” rather than king because Nebuchadnezzar still recognized Jehoiachin as king of Judah even after taking him captive to Babylon (II Kings 25:27). Zedekiah did attempt to escape the city in just the manner acted out by Ezekiel (Jeremiah 39:4).
