2 Kings 25:26-28 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

26 Then all the people both small and great, and the captains of the army arose, and came to [a]Egypt: for they were afraid of the Chaldeans.

27 Notwithstanding in the seven and thirtieth year after [b]Jehoiachin King of Judah was carried away, in the twelfth month and the seven and twentieth day of the month, Evil-Merodach king of Babylon in the year that he began to reign, did lift up the head of Jehoiachin king of Judah out of the prison,

28 And spake kindly to him, and set his throne above the throne of the kings that were with him in Babylon,


  1. 2 Kings 25:26 Contrary to Jeremiah’s counsel, Jer. 40–43.
  2. 2 Kings 25:27 Thus long was he, his wife and his children in Babylon, whom Nebuchadnezzar’s son, after his father’s death preferred to honor: thus by God’s providence the seed of David was preserved even unto Christ.

27 In the thirty-seventh year of the exile of Jehoiachin king of Judah, in the year Awel-Marduk became king of Babylon, he released Jehoiachin king of Judah from prison.
