22:1 The residents of Jerusalem 3 made his youngest son Ahaziah king in his place, for the raiding party that invaded the city with the Arabs had killed all the older sons. 4 So Ahaziah son of Jehoram became king of Judah. 22:2 Ahaziah was twenty-two 5 years old when he became king and he reigned for one year in Jerusalem. His mother was Athaliah, the granddaughter 6 of Omri.
