2 Chronicles 22:5-6

Context
22:5 He followed their advice and joined Ahab’s son King Joram 1  of Israel in a battle against King Hazael of Syria 2  at Ramoth Gilead in which the Syrians defeated Joram. 22:6 Joram 3  returned to Jezreel to recover from the wounds he received from the Syrians 4  in Ramah when he fought against King Hazael of Syria. Ahaziah 5  son of King Jehoram of Judah went down to visit Joram son of Ahab in Jezreel, because he had been wounded. 6 

1 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.

2 tn Heb “Aram” (also in v. 6).

3 tn Heb “he”; the referent (Joram) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

4 tn Heb “which the Syrians inflicted [on] him.”

5 tc Most Hebrew mss read “Azariah.” A few Hebrew mss, the LXX, Vulgate, and Syriac read “Ahaziah” (cf. 2 Kgs 8:29).

6 tn Heb “because he was sick,” presumably referring to the wounds he received in the battle with the Syrians.
