2 Chronicles 25:1-4

Amaziah’s Reign

25:1 Amaziah was twenty-five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned for twenty-nine years in Jerusalem. 1  His mother was Jehoaddan, who was from Jerusalem. 25:2 He did what the Lord approved, 2  but not with wholehearted devotion. 3 

25:3 When he had secured control of the kingdom, 4  he executed the servants who had assassinated his father. 5  25:4 However, he did not execute their sons. He obeyed the Lord’s commandment as recorded in the law scroll of Moses, 6  “Fathers must not be executed for what their sons do, 7  and sons must not be executed for what their fathers do. 8  A man must be executed only for his own sin.” 9
