2 Kings 25:27-30

27 In the thirty-seventh year of the exile of King Jehoiachin of Judah, in the twelfth month, on the twenty-seventh day of the month, King Evil-merodach of Babylon, in the year that he began to reign, released King Jehoiachin of Judah from prison;
28 he spoke kindly to him, and gave him a seat above the other seats of the kings who were with him in Babylon.
29 So Jehoiachin put aside his prison clothes. Every day of his life he dined regularly in the king's presence.
30 For his allowance, a regular allowance was given him by the king, a portion every day, as long as he lived.
