27 March 561 B.C. Jehoiachin is released from prison

27 March 561 B.C. Jehoiachin is released from prison, given prominence in the Babylonian court and is sustained for his remaining days on earth—sustained by King Evil-Merodach, the son and successor of King Nebuchadnezzar. 2 Kings 25.27-30.

Jehoiachin Released from Prison

2 Kings 25:27-30

1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)
27 Notwithstanding in the seven and thirtieth year after [a]Jehoiachin King of Judah was carried away, in the twelfth month and the seven and twentieth day of the month, Evil-Merodach king of Babylon in the year that he began to reign, did lift up the head of Jehoiachin king of Judah out of the prison,
28 And spake kindly to him, and set his throne above the throne of the kings that were with him in Babylon,
29 And changed his prison garments: and he did continually eat bread before him, all the days of his life.
30 And his [b]portion was a continual portion given him by the king, every day a certain, all the days of his life.
