2 Kings 23:31-34
Jehoahaz’s Reign and Captivity31 a Jehoahaz was twenty-three years old when he began to reign, and he reigned three months in Jerusalem. His mother’s name was b Hamutal the daughter of Jeremiah of Libnah. 32And he did what was evil in the sight of the Lord, c according to all that his fathers had done. 33And d Pharaoh Neco put him in bonds at e Riblah in the land of f Hamath, 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 h Pharaoh Neco made Eliakim the son of Josiah king in the place of Josiah his father, and i changed his name to Jehoiakim. But he took Jehoahaz away, j and he came to Egypt and died there.
