Evil-Merodach reigned a mere two years (562-560 B.C.) before being murdered by his brother-in-law, who then took the throne (Jer. 39:3, 13).  The prophet [[Daniel]] probably influenced Evil-Merodach, who was then kind to the prisoner [[Jehoiachin]], who had held in Babylon for 37 years until Evil-Merodach released him.
