Joram 1 his son, Ahaziah his son, Joash his son,
He joined Ahab’s son Joram in a battle against King Hazael of Syria at Ramoth Gilead in which the Syrians defeated Joram.
Jehu drove his chariot 1 to Jezreel, for Joram was recuperating 2 there. (Now King Ahaziah of Judah had come down to visit 3 Joram.)
– just as it is taken from the ox of the peace offering sacrifice 1 – and the priest must offer them up in smoke on the altar of burnt offering.
The rest of the events of Joram’s reign, including a record of his accomplishments, are recorded in the scroll called the Annals of the Kings of Judah. 1
Joram passed away 1 and was buried with his ancestors in the city of David. His son Ahaziah replaced him as king.
King Joram returned to Jezreel to recover from the wounds he received from the Syrians 1 in Ramah when he fought against King Hazael of Syria. King Ahaziah son of Jehoram of Judah went down to visit 2 Joram son of Ahab in Jezreel, for he was ill.
Joram 1 crossed over to Zair with all his chariots. The Edomites, who had surrounded him, attacked at night and defeated him and his chariot officers. 2 The Israelite army retreated to their homeland. 3
Then Jehu son of Jehoshaphat son of Nimshi conspired against Joram.Now Joram had been in Ramoth Gilead with the whole Israelite army, 1 guarding against an invasion by King Hazael of Syria.
So Jehosheba, the daughter of King Joram and sister of Ahaziah, took Ahaziah’s son Joash and sneaked 1 him away 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. 2 So he was hidden from Athaliah and escaped execution. 3
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.
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
he 1 sent his son Joram 2 to King David to extend his best wishes 3 and to pronounce a blessing on him for his victory over Hadadezer, for Toi had been at war with Hadadezer. 4 He brought with him various items made of silver, gold, and bronze. 5
