Jeremiah 37:5  (King James Version)
Then Pharaoh's army was come forth out of Egypt: and when the Chaldeans that besieged Jerusalem heard tidings of them, they departed from Jerusalem.

This was Pharaoh Hophra, or Apries, as he is called by Herodotus, who succeeded his father Psammis on the throne of Egypt, A
M. 3410, ; B.C. 594, ; and reigned twenty-five years. Having entered into a confederacy with Zedekiah, ( Ezekiel 17:15, ,)he marched out of Egypt with a great army to his relief; which caused Nebuchadnezzar to raise the siege of Jerusalem to meet him; during which period the transactions detailed here took place.
