Wasn't Zedekiah supposed to die peacefully?

Question: God tells Zedekiah that he will die in peace and be buried with his fathers (Jer.34:4). But later (2 Kg.25:7 and Jer.52:10-11) he dies a violent death in a foreign land.

Response: Actually, Jeremiah 34:4-5 does not say that Zedekiah would be buried with his fathers and 2 Kings 25:7 and Jeremiah 52:10-11 do not say that Zedekiah died a violent death.

Next: Weren't the Jews who moved to Egypt supposed to die by the sword, famine, or pestilence?
