2 Chronicles 22:2-4

22:2 Ahaziah was twenty-two 1  years old when he became king and he reigned for one year in Jerusalem. His mother was Athaliah, the granddaughter 2  of Omri. 22:3 He followed in the footsteps of Ahab’s dynasty, 3  for his mother gave him evil advice. 4  22:4 He did evil in the sight of 5  the Lord like Ahab’s dynasty because, after his father’s death, they 6  gave him advice that led to his destruction.

1 tc Heb “forty-two,” but the parallel passage in 2 Kgs 8:26 reads “twenty-two” along with some mss of the LXX and the Syriac.

2 tn The Hebrew term בַּת (bat, “daughter”) can refer, as here, to a granddaughter. See HALOT 165-66 s.v. I בַּת 1.

3 tn Heb “and also he walked in the ways of the house of Ahab.”

4 tn Heb “for his mother was his adviser to do evil.”

5 tn Heb “in the eyes of.”

6 tn That is, the members of Ahab’s royal house.
