      Babylon was the Jewish peoples’ first experience of exile since the days of biblical Egypt. Egypt had been slavery, blood, toil, tears, abuse and atrocities. By contrast, Babylon was relatively benign, particularly after the death of Nebuchadnezzar and the ascension to the throne of his son Evil-Merodach.
