2 Chronicles 22 (WEBP)

[1] The inhabitants of Jerusalem made Ahaziah his youngest son king in his place, because the band of men who came with the Arabians to the camp had slain all the oldest. So Ahaziah the son of Jehoram king of Judah reigned.
[2] Ahaziah was forty-two years old when he began to reign, and he reigned one year in Jerusalem. His mother’s name was Athaliah the daughter of Omri.
[3] He also walked in the ways of Ahab’s house, because his mother was his counselor in acting wickedly.
[4] He did that which was evil in Yahweh’s sight, as did Ahab’s house, for they were his counselors after the death of his father, to his destruction.
[5] He also followed 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 wounded Joram.
[6] He returned to be healed in Jezreel of the wounds which they had given him at Ramah, when he fought against Hazael king of Syria. Azariah the son of Jehoram, king of Judah, went down to see Jehoram the son of Ahab in Jezreel, because he was sick.
[7] Now the destruction of Ahaziah was of God, in that he went to Joram; for when he had come, he went out with Jehoram against Jehu the son of Nimshi, whom Yahweh had anointed to cut off Ahab’s house.
[8] When Jehu was executing judgment on Ahab’s house, he found the princes of Judah and the sons of the brothers of Ahaziah serving Ahaziah, and killed them.
[9] He sought Ahaziah, and they caught him (now he was hiding in Samaria), and they brought him to Jehu and killed him; and they buried him, for they said, “He is the son of Jehoshaphat, who sought Yahweh with all his heart.” The house of Ahaziah had no power to hold the kingdom.
[10] Now when Athaliah the mother of Ahaziah saw that her son was dead, she arose and destroyed all the royal offspring of the house of Judah.
[11] But Jehoshabeath, the king’s daughter, took Joash the son of Ahaziah, and stealthily rescued him from among the king’s sons who were slain, and put him and his nurse in the bedroom. 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 didn’t kill him.
[12] He was with them hidden in God’s house six years while Athaliah reigned over the land.

2 Chronicles 22 (KJVS)

[1] And the inhabitants H3427 (8802) of Jerusalem H3389 made H4427 Ahaziah H274 his youngest H6996 son H1121 king H4427 (8686) in his stead: for the band of men H1416 that came H935 (8802) with the Arabians H6163 to the camp H4264 had slain H2026 (8804) all the eldest H7223. So Ahaziah H274 the son H1121 of Jehoram H3088 king H4428 of Judah H3063 reigned H4427 (8799).
[2] Forty H705 and two H8147 years H8141 old H1121 [was] Ahaziah H274 when he began to reign H4427 (8800), and he reigned H4427 (8804) one H259 year H8141 in Jerusalem H3389. His mother’s H517 name H8034 also [was] Athaliah H6271 the daughter H1323 of Omri H6018.
[3] He also walked H1980 (8804) in the ways H1870 of the house H1004 of Ahab H256: for his mother H517 was his counsellor H3289 (8802) to do wickedly H7561 (8687).
[4] Wherefore he did H6213 (8799) evil H7451 in the sight H5869 of the LORD H3068 like the house H1004 of Ahab H256: for they were his counsellors H3289 (8802) after H310 the death H4194 of his father H1 to his destruction H4889.
[5] He walked H1980 (8804) also after their counsel H6098, and went H3212 (8799) with Jehoram H3088 the son H1121 of Ahab H256 king H4428 of Israel H3478 to war H4421 against Hazael H2371 king H4428 of Syria H758 at Ramothgilead H7433 H1568: and the Syrians H7421 smote H5221 (8686) Joram H3141.
[6] And he returned H7725 (8799) to be healed H7495 (8692) in Jezreel H3157 because of the wounds H4347 which were given H5221 (8689) him at Ramah H7414, when he fought H3898 (8736) with Hazael H2371 king H4428 of Syria H758. And Azariah H5838 the son H1121 of Jehoram H3088 king H4428 of Judah H3063 went down H3381 (8804) to see H7200 (8800) Jehoram H3088 the son H1121 of Ahab H256 at Jezreel H3157, because he was sick H2470 (8802).
[7] And the destruction H8395 of Ahaziah H274 was of God H430 by coming H935 (8800) to Joram H3141: for when he was come H935 (8800), he went out H3318 (8804) with Jehoram H3088 against Jehu H3058 the son H1121 of Nimshi H5250, whom the LORD H3068 had anointed H4886 (8804) to cut off H3772 (8687) the house H1004 of Ahab H256.
[8] And it came to pass, that, when Jehu H3058 was executing judgment H8199 (8736) upon the house H1004 of Ahab H256, and found H4672 (8799) the princes H8269 of Judah H3063, and the sons H1121 of the brethren H251 of Ahaziah H274, that ministered H8334 (8764) to Ahaziah H274, he slew H2026 (8799) them.
[9] And he sought H1245 (8762) Ahaziah H274: and they caught H3920 (8799) him, (for he was hid H2244 (8693) in Samaria H8111,) and brought H935 (8686) him to Jehu H3058: and when they had slain H4191 (8686) him, they buried H6912 (8799) him: Because, said H559 (8804) they, he [is] the son H1121 of Jehoshaphat H3092, who sought H1875 (8804) the LORD H3068 with all his heart H3824. So the house H1004 of Ahaziah H274 had no power H3581 to keep H6113 (8800) still the kingdom H4467.
[10] But when Athaliah H6271 the mother H517 of Ahaziah H274 saw H7200 (8804) that her son H1121 was dead H4191 (8804), she arose H6965 (8799) and destroyed H1696 (8762) all the seed H2233 royal H4467 of the house H1004 of Judah H3063.
[11] But Jehoshabeath H3090, the daughter H1323 of the king H4428, took H3947 (8799) Joash H3101 the son H1121 of Ahaziah H274, and stole H1589 (8799) him from among H8432 the king’s H4428 sons H1121 that were slain H4191 (8716), and put H5414 (8799) him and his nurse H3243 (8688) in a bedchamber H2315 H4296. So Jehoshabeath H3090, the daughter H1323 of king H4428 Jehoram H3088, the wife H802 of Jehoiada H3077 the priest H3548, (for she was the sister H269 of Ahaziah H274,) hid H5641 (8686) him from H6440 Athaliah H6271, so that she slew H4191 (8689) him not.
[12] And he was with them hid H2244 (8693) in the house H1004 of God H430 six H8337 years H8141: and Athaliah H6271 reigned H4427 (8802) over the land H776.

Young’s Literal Translation

2 Chronicles 22 (YLT)

[1] And the inhabitants of Jerusalem cause Ahaziah his youngest son to reign in his stead, (for all the elder had the troop slain that came in with the Arabians to the camp,) and Ahaziah son of Jehoram king of Judah reigneth.
[2] A son of twenty and two years is Ahaziah in his reigning, and one year he hath reigned in Jerusalem, and the name of his mother is Athaliah daughter of Omri;
[3] he also hath walked in the ways of the house of Ahab, for his mother hath been his counsellor to do wickedly.
[4] And he doth the evil thing in the eyes of Jehovah, like the house of Ahab, for they have been his counsellors, after the death of his father, for destruction to him.
[5] Also, in their counsel he hath walked, and goeth with Jehoram son of Ahab king of Israel to battle against Hazael king of Aram, in Ramoth-Gilead, and they of Ramah smite Joram;
[6] and he turneth back to be healed in Jezreel because of the wounds with which they had smitten him in Ramah, in his fighting with Hazael king of Aram. And Azariah son of Jehoram king of Judah hath gone down to see Jehoram son of Ahab, in Jezreel, for he is sick;
[7] and from God hath been the destruction of Ahaziah, to come unto Joram: and in his coming he hath gone out with Jehoram unto Jehu son of Nimshi, whom Jehovah anointed to cut off the house of Ahab.
[8] And it cometh to pass, in Jehu’s executing judgment with the house of Ahab, that he findeth the heads of Judah and sons of the brethren of Ahaziah, ministers of Ahaziah, and slayeth them.
[9] And he seeketh Ahaziah, and they capture him, (and he is hiding himself in Samaria), and bring him in unto Jehu, and put him to death, and bury him, for they said, ‘He is son of Jehoshaphat, who sought Jehovah with all his heart;’ and there is none to the house of Ahaziah to retain power for the kingdom.
[10] And Athaliah mother of Ahaziah hath seen that her son is dead, and she riseth and destroyeth the whole seed of the kingdom of the house of Judah.
[11] And Jehoshabeath daughter of the king taketh Joash son of Ahaziah, and stealeth him from the midst of the sons of the king who are put to death, and putteth him and his nurse into the inner part of the bed-chambers, and Jehoshabeath daughter of king Jehoram, wife of Jehoiada the priest, because she hath been sister of Ahaziah, hideth him from the face of Athaliah, and she hath not put him to death.
[12] And he is with them in the house of God hiding himself six years, and Athaliah is reigning over the land.
