Evilmerodach


"Merodach's man, the son and successor of Nebuchadnezzar, king of" "Babylon (2 Kings 25:27; Jer. 52:31, 34). He seems to have" reigned but two years (B.C. 562-560). Influenced probably by "Daniel, he showed kindness to Jehoiachin, who had been a" "prisoner in Babylon for thirty-seven years. He released him, and" spoke kindly to him. He was murdered by "Nergal-sharezer=Neriglissar, his brother-in-law, who succeeded" "him (Jer. 39:3, 13)."
