And the inhabitants of Jerusalem made Ahazi'ah his youngest son king in his stead: for the band of men that came with the Arabians to the camp had slain all the eldest. So Ahazi'ah the son of Jeho'ram king of Judah reigned.
And he returned to be healed in Jezreel because of the wounds which were given him at Ramah, when he fought with Haz'a-el king of Syria. And Azari'ah the son of Jeho'ram king of Judah went down to see Jeho'ram the son of Ahab at Jezreel, because he was sick.
¶ And the destruction of Ahazi'ah was of God by coming to Joram: for when he was come, he went out with Jeho'ram against Jehu the son of Nimshi, whom the LORD had anointed to cut off the house of Ahab.
And he sought Ahazi'ah: and they caught him, (for he was hid in Samaria,) and brought him to Jehu: and when they had slain him, they buried him: Because, said they, he is the son of Jehosh'aphat, who sought the LORD with all heart. So the house of Ahazi'ah had no power to keep still the kingdom.
But Jehosh'abeath, the daughter of the king, took Jo'ash the son of Ahazi'ah, and stole him from among the king's sons that were slain, and put him and his nurse in a bedchamber. So Jehosh'abeath, the daughter of king Jeho'ram, the wife of Jehoi'ada the priest, (for she was the sister of Ahazi'ah,) hid him from Athali'ah, so that she slew him not.
