2 Chronicles 22

Ukubusa kukaAhaziya koJuda

Abahlali beJerusalema basebebeka uAhaziya indodana yakhe elicinathunjana waba yinkosi esikhundleni sakhe; ngoba iviyo elafika lamaArabhiya enkambeni lalibulele bonke abadala. Ngakho uAhaziya indodana kaJehoramu inkosi yakoJuda waba yinkosi.

UAhaziya wayeleminyaka engamatshumi amane lambili esiba yinkosi, wabusa umnyaka owodwa eJerusalema. Lebizo likanina lalinguAthaliya indodakazi kaOmri. Laye wahamba ngezindlela zendlu kaAhabi, ngoba unina wayengumelulekikazi wakhe ukuthi enze okubi. Ngakho wenza okubi emehlweni e Nkosi njengendlu kaAhabi, ngoba bona babengabeluleki bakhe emva kokufa kukayise, kwaba yikuchitheka kwakhe.

Futhi wahamba ngeseluleko sabo, wahamba loJehoramu indodana kaAhabi inkosi yakoIsrayeli waya empini emelene loHazayeli inkosi yeSiriya eRamothi-Gileyadi. AmaSiriya asemtshaya uJoramu. Wasebuyela ukuyakwelatshwa eJizereyeli ngenxa yamanxeba ayewatshaywe eRama, ekulweni kwakhe loHazayeli inkosi yeSiriya. UAzariya indodana kaJehoramu inkosi yakoJuda wehlela ukubona uJehoramu indodana kaAhabi eJizereyeli, ngoba wayegula. Lokubhujiswa kukaAhaziya kwakuvele kuNkulunkulu ngokuthi eze kuJoramu. Ngoba ekufikeni kwakhe waphuma loJehoramu esiya kuJehu indodana kaNimshi, i Nkosi eyayimgcobele ukuthi aqume indlu kaAhabi. Kwasekusithi lapho uJehu esenza isahlulelo kundlu kaAhabi, wafica iziphathamandla zakoJuda lamadodana abafowabo bakaAhaziya ababesebenzela uAhaziya, wababulala. Wasedinga uAhaziya, basebembamba, ngoba wayecatshile eSamariya, bamletha kuJehu, bambulala, bamngcwaba, ngoba bathi: Uyindodana kaJehoshafathi owadinga i Nkosi ngenhliziyo yakhe yonke. Ngakho indlu kaAhaziya yayingelamuntu wokugcina amandla ombuso.

UAthaliya uzibeka abe ngumbusi

10 Kwathi uAthaliya unina kaAhaziya ebone ukuthi indodana yakhe ifile, wasukuma wabhubhisa yonke inzalo yobukhosi yendlu yakoJuda. 11 Kodwa uJehoshabeyathi indodakazi yenkosi wathatha uJowashi indodana kaAhaziya, wameba emsusa phakathi kwamadodana enkosi ayebulawa, wambeka lomlizane wakhe endlini yokulala. Ngokunjalo uJehoshabeyathi indodakazi yenkosi uJehoramu, umkaJehoyada umpristi, ngoba yena wayengudadewabo kaAhaziya, wamfihlela uAthaliya ukuze angambulali. 12 Wasecatsha labo endlini kaNkulunkulu iminyaka eyisithupha; uAthaliya wabusa-ke phezu kwelizwe.
