Jehoram ordered, “Hitch up my chariot.” 1 When his chariot had been hitched up, 2 King Jehoram of Israel and King Ahaziah of Judah went out in their respective chariots 3 to meet Jehu. They met up with him 4 in the plot of land that had once belonged to Naboth of Jezreel.
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.
King Jehoash of Judah collected all the sacred items that his ancestors Jehoshaphat, Jehoram, and Ahaziah, kings of Judah, had consecrated, as well as his own sacred items and all the gold that could be found in the treasuries of the Lord’s temple and the royal palace. He sent it all 1 to King Hazael of Syria, who then withdrew 2 from Jerusalem.
