2 Chronicles 22:10-12

Athaliah Reigns in Judah

10 aNow when Athaliah the mother of Ahaziah saw that her son was dead, she arose and destroyed all the royal family of the house of Judah. 11But Jehoshabeath,
Spelled Jehosheba in 2 Kings 11:2
the daughter of the king, took Joash the son of Ahaziah and stole him away from among the king’s sons who were about to be put to death, and she put him and his nurse in a bedroom. Thus Jehoshabeath, the daughter of King Jehoram and wife of Jehoiada the priest, because she was a sister of Ahaziah, hid him
That is, Joash
from Athaliah, so that she did not put him to death.
12And he remained with them six years, hidden in the house of God, while Athaliah reigned over the land.
