2 Chronicles 36:6 KJV - Against him came up Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, and bound him in fetters, to carry him to Babylon.
2 Chronicles 36:7 KJV - Nebuchadnezzar also carried of the vessels of the house of the LORD to Babylon, and put them in his temple at Babylon.
2 Chronicles 36:10 KJV - And when the year was expired, king Nebuchadnezzar sent, and brought him to Babylon, with the goodly vessels of the house of the LORD, and made Zedekiah his brother king over Judah and Jerusalem.
2 Chronicles 36:18 KJV - And all the vessels of the house of God, great and small, and the treasures of the house of the LORD, and the treasures of the king, and of his princes; all [these] he brought to Babylon.
2 Chronicles 36:20 KJV - And them that had escaped from the sword carried he away to Babylon; where they were servants to him and his sons until the reign of the kingdom of Persia:


Genesis 14:1 KJV - And it came to pass in the days of Amraphel king of Shinar, Arioch king of Ellasar, Chedorlaomer king of Elam, and Tidal king of nations;
Genesis 14:14 KJV - And when Abram heard that his brother was taken captive, he armed his trained [servants], born in his own house, three hundred and eighteen, and pursued [them] unto Dan.

Shinar is Babylon.
Do you see any similarities that I missed? Could it be that Genesis is a prophetic writing to 2Chronicles?

I think the 4 kings reflect the 4 kingdoms: Babylon, Medo-Persia, Macedonia and Rome.

Amraphel king of Shinar, Arioch king of Ellasar, Chedorlaomer king of Elam, and Tidal king of nations

Well, one problem is that we find a parallel account in 2 Kings, so it's not a unique link between Gen 14 and 2 Chronicles. But there is an intriguing correlation with the 14s in Matthew's genealogy of Christ which also is divided according to the Babylonian exile.
