2 Chronicles 22


Ahaziah Reigns in Judah

1And [5gave reign 1the ones 2dwelling 3in 4Jerusalem] to Ahaziah his son, the youngest, instead of him; for all the elder sons were killed by the ones coming upon them -- the band of robbers, the Arabians. And [6reigned 1Ahaziah 2son 3of Jehoram 4king 5of Judah]. 2[2was a son 3being 4forty 5and 6two 7years old 1Ahaziah] in his reigning, and [3year 2one 1he reigned] in Jerusalem. And the name of his mother was Athaliah daughter of Omri. 3And also he went in the ways of the house of Ahab, for his mother was his counselor to sin. 4And he did the wicked thing in the eyes of the  lord, as the house of Ahab; for they were to him counselors after the dying of his father to utterly destroy him. 5And [2by 3their counsels 1he went]. And he went with Jehoram son of Ahab king of Israel for war against Hazael king of Syria in Ramoth Gilead. And [3struck 1the 2bowmen] Jehoram. 6And Jehoram returned to be treated medically in Jezreel from the wounds which [3struck 4him 1the 2Syrians] in Ramoth, in his warring against Hazael king of Syria. And Ahaziah son of Jehoram, king of Judah went down to see Jehoram son of Ahab in Jezreel, for he was infirm. 7And by God came the final event of Ahaziah in his coming to Jehoram. And in his coming, Jehoram went forth with him against Jehu son of Nimshi, the anointed of the  lord, whom [2anointed 3him 1the  lord] to utterly destroy the house of Ahab. 8And it came to pass in [2taking vengeance 1Jehu] on the house of Ahab, that he found the rulers of Judah, and the brothers of Ahaziah, the ones officiating to Ahaziah, and he killed them. 9And Jehu told them to seek Ahaziah. And they overtook him in his being treated medically in Samaria, and they led him to Jehu, and he killed him. And they entombed him, for they said, He is a son of Jehoshaphat who sought the  lord with [2entire 3heart 1his]. And there was not anyone in the house of Ahaziah prevailing with power over the kingdom.

Athaliah Kills the Royal Seed

10And Athaliah the mother of Ahaziah saw that [2died 1her son], and she rose up and destroyed all the seed of the kingdom in the house of Judah. 11But [6took 1Jehoshabeath 2the 3daughter 4of the 5king] Joash son of Ahaziah, and stole him from the midst of the sons of the king, of the ones being put to death. And she put him and his nourishment in the storeroom of the beds. And [5hid 6him 1the 2daughter 3of king 4Jehoram], Jehoshabeath the sister of Ahaziah the wife of Jehoiada the priest. And she hid him from the face of Athaliah, and she did not kill him. 12And he was being hid with her in the house of God six years. And Athaliah reigned over the land.
