2 Chronicles 22:3-5

Context
22:3 He followed in the footsteps of Ahab’s dynasty, 1  for his mother gave him evil advice. 2  22:4 He did evil in the sight of 3  the Lord like Ahab’s dynasty because, after his father’s death, they 4  gave him advice that led to his destruction. 22:5 He followed their advice and joined Ahab’s son King Joram 5  of Israel in a battle against King Hazael of Syria 6  at Ramoth Gilead in which the Syrians defeated Joram.

5 sn Jehoram and Joram are alternate spellings of the Israelite king’s name (also in vv. 6-7). The shorter form is used in these verse to avoid confusion with King Jehoram of Judah, father of Azariah.
