And the inhabitants of JerusalemmadeAhaziah his youngest son king in his stead: for the band of men thatcamewith the Arabians to the camp had slain all the eldest. So Ahaziah the son of Jehoramking of Judahreigned.
And he returned to be healed in Jezreelbecause of the woundswhichweregiven him at Ramah, when he foughtwithHazaelking of Syria. And Azariah the son of Jehoramking of Judahwentdown to see Jehoram the son of Ahab at Jezreel, because he was sick.
And he soughtAhaziah: and theycaught him, (for he was hid in Samaria,) and brought him to Jehu: and whenthey had slain him, theyburied him: Because, saidthey, he is the son of Jehoshaphat, who sought the LORDwith all his heart. So the house of Ahaziah had no power to keepstill the kingdom.
But Jehoshabeath, the daughter of the king, tookJoash the son of Ahaziah, and stole him fromamong the king’ssonsthatwereslain, and put him and his nurse in a bedchamber. So Jehoshabeath, the daughter of kingJehoram, the wife of Jehoiada the priest, (for she was the sister of Ahaziah,) hid him fromAthaliah, so that she slew him not.
