2 Chronicles 22
Ahaziah Succeeds Jehoram in Judah1 a Then the inhabitants of Jerusalem made ▼
▼ In 2 Chr 21:17, JehoahazAhaziah, his youngest son, king in his place, for the band of men who came with c the Arabs to the camp had slain all the older sons. So Ahaziah the son of Jehoram king of Judah began to reign. 2 Ahaziah was ▼
▼ So some versions and 2 Kin 8:26; Heb 42 yearstwenty-two years old when he became king, and he reigned one year in Jerusalem. And his mother’s name was Athaliah, the ▼
▼ Lit daughtergranddaughter of Omri. 3 He also walked in the ways of the house of Ahab, for his mother was his counselor to do wickedly. 4 He did evil in the sight of the Lord like the house of Ahab, for they were his counselors after the death of his father, to f his destruction.
Ahaziah Allies with Jehoram of Israel5 He also walked according to their counsel, and went with Jehoram the son of Ahab king of Israel to wage war against Hazael king of Aram at Ramoth-gilead. But the ▼

▼ So with 2 Kin 8:29; Heb AzariahAhaziah, the son of Jehoram king of Judah, went down to see Jehoram the son of Ahab in Jezreel, because he was sick. 7 Now m the destruction of Ahaziah was from God, in that ▼

Jehu Murders Princes of Judah8 q It came about when Jehu was executing judgment on the house of Ahab, he found the princes of Judah and the sons of Ahaziah’s brothers ministering to Ahaziah, and slew them. 9 r He also sought Ahaziah, and they caught him while he was hiding in Samaria; they brought him to Jehu, put him to death s and buried him. For they said, “He is the son of Jehoshaphat t who sought the Lord with all his heart.” So there was no one of the house of Ahaziah to retain the power of the kingdom. 10 u Now when Athaliah the mother of Ahaziah saw that her son was dead, she rose and destroyed all the royal ▼

So Jehoshabeath, the daughter of King Jehoram, the wife of Jehoiada the priest (for she was the sister of Ahaziah), hid him from Athaliah so that she would not put him to death. 12 He was hidden with them in the house of God six years while Athaliah reigned over the land.
