The Second Book of the Chronicles

Chapter 22

1

And the inhabitants6 of Jerusalem made Ahaziah his youngest son king55 in his stead: for the band of men that came6 with the Arabians to the camp had slain1 all the eldest. So Ahaziah the son of Jehoram king of Judah reigned.4

2

Forty and two years old [was] Ahaziah when he began to reign,2 and he reigned1 one year in Jerusalem. His mother's name also [was] Athaliah the daughter of Omri.

3

He also walked1 in the ways of the house of Ahab: for his mother was his counsellor6 to do wickedly.53

4

Wherefore he did4 evil in the sight of the LORD like the house of Ahab: for they were his counsellors6 after the death of his father to his destruction.

5

He walked1 also after their counsel, and went4 with Jehoram the son of Ahab king of Israel to war against Hazael king of Syria at Ramothgilead: 1568 and the Syrians 7421 smote55 Joram.

6

And he returned4 to be healed99 in Jezreel because of the wounds which were given52 him at Ramah, when he fought9 with Hazael king of Syria. And Azariah the son of Jehoram king of Judah went down1 to see2 Jehoram the son of Ahab at Jezreel, because he was sick.6

7

And the destruction of Ahaziah was of God by coming2 to Joram: for when he was come,2 he went out1 with Jehoram against Jehu the son of Nimshi, whom the LORD had anointed1 to cut off53 the house of Ahab.

8

And it came to pass, that, when Jehu was executing judgment9 upon the house of Ahab, and found4 the princes of Judah, and the sons of the brethren of Ahaziah, that ministered18 to Ahaziah, he slew4 them.

9

And he sought17 Ahaziah: and they caught4 him, (for he was hid102 in Samaria,) and brought55 him to Jehu: and when they had slain55 him, they buried4 him: Because, said1 they, he [is] the son of Jehoshaphat, who sought1 the LORD with all his heart. So the house of Ahaziah had no power to keep2 still the kingdom.

10

But when Athaliah the mother of Ahaziah saw1 that her son was dead,1 she arose4 and destroyed17 all the seed royal of the house of Judah.

11

But Jehoshabeath, the daughter of the king, took4 Joash the son of Ahaziah, and stole4 him from among the king's sons that were slain,94 and put4 him and his nurse56 in a bedchamber. 4296 So Jehoshabeath, the daughter of king Jehoram, the wife of Jehoiada the priest, (for she was the sister of Ahaziah,) hid55 him from Athaliah, so that she slew52 him not.

12

And he was with them hid102 in the house of God six years: and Athaliah reigned6 over the land.
