2 Chronicles 22:5

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.

2 Chronicles 22:7


22:7 God brought about Ahaziah’s downfall through his visit to Joram. 3  When Ahaziah 4  arrived, he went out with Joram to meet Jehu son of Nimshi, whom the Lord had commissioned 5  to wipe out Ahab’s family. 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 “From God was the downfall of Ahaziah by going to Joram.”

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

5 tn Heb “anointed.”

6 tn Heb “to cut off the house of Ahab.”
