The broken twig (Ezek 17:4-17:4)

“The eagle broke off

The topmost shoot.

He carried it

To a land of trade.

He set it

In a city of merchants.”

In this riddle, Yahweh said that the eagle broke off a top shoot. He then carried it to a land of traders. He put this twig in a city of merchants. Is this an indication of King Jehoiakim (609-598 BCE) being deported to Babylon?
