II Kn. 25:27-30; Jer. 52:31-34
After many years of power, King Nebuchadnezzar died and his son, Evil-Merodach succeeded him. Soon after becoming king, Evil-Merodach released Judah’s king, Jehoiachin from prison during his thirty-seventh year of captivity. The new Babylonian king allowed Jehoiachin to have special privileges in his household for the rest of his life.
