New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
27 In the thirty-seventh year of King Jehoiachin's exile in Babylon, Evil-merodach ascended to the Babylonian throne. He was kind to Jehoiachin and released him from prison on April 2 of that year. 27 In the thirty-seventh year of the exile of Jehoiachin king of Judah, in the year Evil-Merodach became king of Babylon, he released Jehoiachin from prison on the twenty-seventh day of the twelfth month.
28 He spoke pleasantly to Jehoiachin and gave him preferential treatment over all the other exiled kings in Babylon. 28 He spoke kindly to him and gave him a seat of honor higher than those of the other kings who were with him in Babylon.
29 He supplied Jehoiachin with new clothes to replace his prison garb and allowed him to dine at the king's table for the rest of his life. 29 So Jehoiachin put aside his prison clothes and for the rest of his life ate regularly at the king's table.
30 The Babylonian king also gave him a regular allowance to cover his living expenses until the day of his death. 30 Day by day the king gave Jehoiachin a regular allowance as long as he lived.
