Judah's King Jehoiachin had been in exile for thirty-seven years when Awil-merodach became king in Babylon. He took note of Jehoiachin's plight and released him from prison on the twenty-fifth day of the twelfth month of that very year.
Awil-merodach treated Jehoiachin kindly and gave him a throne higher than those of the other kings with him in Babylon.
So Jehoiachin discarded his prison clothes and ate his meals at the king's table for the rest of his life.
The Babylonian king provided him daily provisions for the rest of his life, right up until he died.
