2 Chronicles 22:10-12

Athaliah is Eliminated

22:10 When Athaliah the mother of Ahaziah saw that her son was dead, she was determined to destroy the entire royal line 5  of Judah. 6  22:11 So Jehoshabeath, 7  the daughter of King Jehoram, 8  took Ahaziah’s son Joash and sneaked him away 9  from the rest of the royal descendants who were to be executed. She hid him and his nurse in the room where the bed covers were stored. So Jehoshabeath the daughter of King Jehoram, wife of Jehoiada the priest and sister of Ahaziah, hid him from Athaliah so she could not execute him. 22:12 He remained in hiding in God’s temple 10  for six years, while Athaliah was ruling over the land.
