Second Chronicles 22

22:1 And the inhabitants of Jerusalem made Ahaziah 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 Ahaziah the
 son of Jehoram king of Judah reigned.
22:2 Forty and two years old [was] Ahaziah when he began to
 reign, and he reigned one year in Jerusalem. His mother's name
 also [was] Athaliah the daughter of Omri.
22:3 He also walked in the ways of the house of Ahab: for his
 mother was his counselor to do wickedly.
22:4 Wherefore 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 his destruction.
22:5 He walked also after their counsel, and went with Jehoram
 the son of Ahab king of Israel to war against Hazael king of
 Syria at Ramoth-gilead: and the Syrians smote Joram.
22:6 And he returned to be healed in Jezreel because of the
 wounds which were given him at Ramah, when he fought with
 Hazael king of Syria. And Azariah the son of Jehoram king of
 Judah went down to see Jehoram the son of Ahab at Jezreel,
 because he was sick.
22:7 And the destruction of Ahaziah was from God by coming to
 Joram: for when he had come, he went out with Jehoram against
 Jehu the son of Nimshi, whom the LORD had anointed to cut off
 the house of Ahab.
22:8 And it came to pass, that when Jehu was executing judgment
 upon the house of Ahab, and found the princes of Judah, and the
 sons of the brethren of Ahaziah, that ministered to Ahaziah, he
 slew them.
22:9 And he sought Ahaziah: 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
 Jehoshaphat, who sought the LORD with all his heart. So the
 house of Ahaziah had no power to retain the kingdom.
22:10 But when Athaliah the mother of Ahaziah saw that her son
 was dead, she arose, and destroyed all the seed royal of the
 house of Judah.
22:11 But Jehoshabeath, the daughter of the king, took Joash the
 son of Ahaziah, and stole him from among the king's sons that
 were slain, and put him and his nurse in a bed chamber. 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 slew him not.
22:12 And he was with them hid in the house of God six years:
 and Athaliah reigned over the land.
