New Defender's Study Bible Notes
22:24 Coniah. Coniah is an abbreviation of Jeconiah (I Chronicles 3:16), which is another form of the name Jehoiachin (II Kings 24:6). Coniah was the last king of Judah in the direct line from King David. When he was deported to Babylon by Nebuchadnezzar (II Chronicles 36:10), Coniah’s uncle Zedekiah was assigned to rule Judah for a brief reign, but he also was put down, and no later king was ever able to regain the throne.
