14:17 King Amaziah son of Joash of Judah lived for fifteen years after the death of King Jehoash son of Jehoahaz of Israel. 14:18 The rest of the events of Amaziah’s reign are recorded in the scroll called the Annals of the Kings of Judah. 1 14:19 Conspirators plotted against him in Jerusalem, 2 so he fled to Lachish. But they sent assassins after him 3 and they killed him there. 14:20 His body was carried back by horses 4 and he was buried in Jerusalem with his ancestors in the city of David. 14:21 All the people of Judah took Azariah, who was sixteen years old, and made him king in his father Amaziah’s place. 14:22 Azariah 5 built up Elat and restored it to Judah after the king 6 had passed away. 7
