2 Chronicles 21:20--22:2

Context

21:20 Jehoram was thirty-two years old when he became king and he reigned eight years in Jerusalem. No one regretted his death; 1  he was buried in the City of David, 2  but not in the royal tombs.

Ahaziah’s Reign

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.

1 tn Heb “and he went without desire.”

2 sn The phrase the City of David refers here to the fortress of Zion in Jerusalem, not to Bethlehem. See 2 Sam 5:7.

4 tn Heb “for all the older [ones] the raiding party that came with the Arabs to the camp had killed.”

5 tc Heb “forty-two,” but the parallel passage in 2 Kgs 8:26 reads “twenty-two” along with some mss of the LXX and the Syriac.

6 tn The Hebrew term בַּת (bat, “daughter”) can refer, as here, to a granddaughter. See HALOT 165-66 s.v. I בַּת 1.
