When Nevuchadnezzar disappeared for seven years, living like a beast amongst the animals, his son Evil Merodach was asked to take over his position. When Nevuchadnezzer returned he imprisoned Evil Merodach.
When Evil Merodach was notified that his father had died, he was afraid of leaving the prison, thinking that it was a trap from his father. He knew that no person ever left his father’s prison alive. Therefore Nevuchdnezzar’s corpse was exhumed from his grave, to prove to Evil Merodach that it is safe for him to leave the prison. On this day, Jehoiachin the former king of Yehudah was also released from prison, where he had dwelled for the past 37 years.
