2 Chronicles 22:7-9

Context

22:7 God brought about Ahaziah’s downfall through his visit to Joram. 1  When Ahaziah 2  arrived, he went out with Joram to meet Jehu son of Nimshi, whom the Lord had commissioned 3  to wipe out Ahab’s family. 4  22:8 While Jehu was dishing out punishment to Ahab’s family, he discovered the officials of Judah and the sons of Ahaziah’s relatives who were serving Ahaziah and killed them. 22:9 He looked for Ahaziah, who was captured while hiding in Samaria. 5  They brought him to Jehu and then executed him. They did give him a burial, for they reasoned, 6  “He is the son of Jehoshaphat, who sought the Lord with his whole heart.” There was no one in Ahaziah’s family strong enough to rule in his place. 7
