2 Chronicles 25:1-6
Amaziah Reigns in Judah1 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.”
Amaziah’s Victories5Then Amaziah assembled the men of Judah and set them by fathers’ houses under commanders of thousands and of hundreds for all Judah and Benjamin. He mustered those d twenty years old and upward, and found that they were e 300,000 choice men, fit for war, f able to handle spear and shield. 6He hired also 100,000 mighty men of valor from Israel for 100 talents ▼
▼A talent was about 75 pounds or 34 kilogramsof silver.
