2 Chronicles 25:1-4

Amaziah Reigns in Judah

1 a  Amaziah was twenty-five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned twenty-nine years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name was Jehoaddan of Jerusalem. 2And he did what was right in the eyes of the  Lord, b  yet not with a whole heart. 3And as soon as the royal power was firmly his, he killed his servants who had struck down the king his father. 4But he did not put their children to death, according to what is written in the Law, in the Book of Moses, where the  Lord commanded, c  Fathers shall not die because of their children, nor children die because of their fathers, but each one shall die for his own sin.”
