Jehoahaz’s Reign and Captivity31 dJehoahaz was twenty-three years old when he began to reign, and he reigned three months in Jerusalem. His mother’s name was eHamutal the daughter of Jeremiah of Libnah. 32And he did what was evil in the sight of the Lord, faccording to all that his fathers had done. 33And gPharaoh Neco put him in bonds at hRiblah in the land of iHamath, that he might not reign in Jerusalem, and laid on the land a tribute of a hundred talents ▼
▼A talent was about 75 pounds or 34 kilogramsof silver and a talent of gold. 34And kPharaoh Neco made Eliakim the son of Josiah king in the place of Josiah his father, and lchanged his name to Jehoiakim. But he took Jehoahaz away, mand he came to Egypt and died there.
