Jeremiah 52:31-34

Jehoiachin lives in Babylon

52:31Jehoiachin had been king of Judah when King Nebuchadnezzar took him away to Babylon as his prisoner. Nebuchadnezzar had then chosen Zedekiah to rule Judah as king, instead of Jehoiachin. See Jeremiah 24:1; 2 Kings 24:15-17.

31 37 years after King Jehoiachin of Judah had gone as a prisoner to Babylon, Evil-Merodach became the king of Babylon. On the 25th day of the 12th month, he took Jehoiachin out from his prison so that he became free. 32 King Evil-Merodach spoke in a kind way to Jehoiachin. He gave him more honour than the other kings who were with him in Babylon. 33 Jehoiachin no longer had to wear the clothes of a prisoner. Every day for the rest of his life, he ate a meal at the king's table in Babylon. 34 The king of Babylon gave Jehoiachin everything that he needed each day of his life until he died.
