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

e-vil-me-ro'-dak; -mer'-o-dak 'ewil merodhakh; Septuagint Eueialmarodek; so B in K, but B i n Jeremiah, and A and Q in both places much corrupted:
The name of the son and immediate successor of Nebuchadnezzar II, king of Babylon. The Babylo nian form of the name is Amelu- Marduk, that is, "man of Marduk." About 30 contract tablets d ated in this reign have been found. They show that Evil-merodach reigned for two years and ab out five months. He is said by Berosus to have conducted his government in an illegal and imp roper manner, and to have been slain by his sister's brother, Nergalshar-ucur, who then reign ed in his stead. Evil- merodach is said in 2 Kings 25:27-30 and in the parallel passage in Je remiah 52:31-34 to have taken Jehoiachin, king of Judah, from his prison in Babylon, where h e seems to have been confined for 37 years, to have clothed him with new garments, to have gi ven him a seat above all the other kings, and to have allowed him to eat at the king's tabl e all the days of his life. It is an undesigned coincidence, that may be worthy of mention, t hat the first dated tablet from this reign was written on the 26th of Elul, and Jeremiah 52:3 1 says that Jehoiachin was freed from prison on the 25th of the same month.

According t o the Biblical Book of Kings, he pardoned and released Jehoiachin, king of Judah, who had bee n a prisoner in Babylon for thirty-seven years. Allegedly because Amel-Marduk tried to modif y his father's policies, he was murdered by Nergal-sharezer (Neriglissar), his brother-in-law , who succeeded him.
