Rename (move) multiple files on remote server using sftp

I want to rename (move) multiple files on remote server. I tried the following command to move all TXT files from my_dir directory to /new_dir. But it does not work. Any help?

Code:
#!/bin/ksh
 
sftp -dev3 << ABC
     cd my_dir
     $(for i in TXT; do echo "ls *.$i" ;  rename $x /new_dir/$x; done)
ABC

Correction : The remote server is dev3 and not -dev3.

Increase the logging level of sftp and read the errors.

What OS are you using? (this is important).

If, for example Linux:

Ref: https://www.unix.com/man-page/linux/1/sftp/

Quote:
-v Raise logging level. This option is also passed to ssh.
Note, you can also set the logging level in ssh_config

https://www.unix.com/man-page/linux/5/ssh_config/

Then, please look at your log files and post back any sftp session and error messages.

This is how you debug problems. First start with the log files and error messages.
