25 In the seventh month, however, Ishmael son of Nethaniah, the son of Elishama, who was of royal blood, came with ten men and assassinated1 Gedaliah and also the men of Judah and the Babylonians who were with him at Mizpah.2 26 At this, all the people from the least to the greatest, together with the army officers, fled to Egypt3 for fear of the Babylonians.

Jehoiachin Released

25:27-30pp -- Jer 52:31-34

27 In the thirty-seventh year of the exile of Jehoiachin king of Judah, in the year Evil-Merodacha became king of Babylon, he released Jehoiachin4 from prison on the twenty-seventh day of the twelfth month. 28 He spoke kindly5 to him and gave him a seat of honor6 higher than those of the other kings who were with him in Babylon. 29 So Jehoiachin put aside his prison clothes and for the rest of his life ate regularly at the king's table.7 30 Day by day the king gave Jehoiachin a regular allowance as long as he lived.8
