In the second year of Joash son of Jehoahaz king of Israel reigned1 Amaziah the son of Joash king of Judah.
He was twenty and five years old when he began to reign,2 and reigned1 twenty and nine years in Jerusalem. And his mother's name [was] Jehoaddan of Jerusalem.
And he did4 [that which was] right in the sight of the LORD, yet not like David his father: he did1 according to all things as Joash his father did.1
Howbeit the high places were not taken away:1 as yet the people did sacrifice18 and burnt incense18 on the high places.
And it came to pass, as soon as the kingdom was confirmed1 in his hand, that he slew55 his servants which had slain56 the king his father.
But the children of the murderers56 he slew52 not: according unto that which is written7 in the book of the law of Moses, wherein the LORD commanded,14 saying,2 The fathers shall not be put to death93 for the children, nor the children be put to death93 for the fathers; but every man shall be put to death93 4191 4 for his own sin.
He slew52 of Edom in the valley of salt ten thousand, and took1 Selah by war, and called4 the name of it Joktheel unto this day.
Then Amaziah sent1 messengers to Jehoash, the son of Jehoahaz son of Jehu, king of Israel, saying,2 Come,3 let us look101 one another in the face.
And Jehoash the king of Israel sent4 to Amaziah king of Judah, saying,2 The thistle that [was] in Lebanon sent1 to the cedar that [was] in Lebanon, saying,2 Give3 thy daughter to my son to wife: and there passed by4 a wild beast that [was] in Lebanon, and trode down4 the thistle.
Thou hast indeed53 smitten52 Edom, and thine heart hath lifted thee up:1 glory10 [of this], and tarry3 at home: for why shouldest thou meddle101 to [thy] hurt, that thou shouldest fall,1 [even] thou, and Judah with thee?
But Amaziah would not hear.1 Therefore Jehoash king of Israel went up;4 and he and Amaziah king of Judah looked101 one another in the face at Bethshemesh, which [belongeth] to Judah.
And Judah was put to the worse11 before Israel; and they fled4 every man to their tents.
And Jehoash king of Israel took1 Amaziah king of Judah, the son of Jehoash the son of Ahaziah, at Bethshemesh, and came4 to Jerusalem, and brake down4 the wall of Jerusalem from the gate of Ephraim unto the corner gate, four hundred cubits.
And he took1 all the gold and silver, and all the vessels that were found12 in the house of the LORD, and in the treasures of the king's house, and hostages, 8594 and returned4 to Samaria.
Now the rest of the acts of Jehoash which he did,1 and his might, and how he fought8 with Amaziah king of Judah, [are] they not written7 in the book of the chronicles 3117 of the kings of Israel?
And Jehoash slept4 with his fathers, and was buried11 in Samaria with the kings of Israel; and Jeroboam his son reigned4 in his stead.
And Amaziah the son of Joash king of Judah lived4 after the death of Jehoash son of Jehoahaz king of Israel fifteen 6240 years.
And the rest of the acts of Amaziah, [are] they not written7 in the book of the chronicles 3117 of the kings of Judah?
Now they made4 a conspiracy against him in Jerusalem: and he fled4 to Lachish; but they sent4 after him to Lachish, and slew55 him there.
And they brought4 him on horses: and he was buried11 at Jerusalem with his fathers in the city of David.
And all the people of Judah took4 Azariah, which [was] sixteen 6240 years old, and made him king55 instead of his father Amaziah.
He built1 Elath, and restored55 it to Judah, after that the king slept2 with his fathers.
In the fifteenth 6240 year of Amaziah the son of Joash king of Judah Jeroboam the son of Joash king of Israel began to reign1 in Samaria, [and reigned] forty and one years.
And he did4 [that which was] evil in the sight of the LORD: he departed1 not from all the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, who made Israel to sin.52
He restored52 the coast of Israel from the entering2 of Hamath unto the sea of the plain, according to the word of the LORD God of Israel, which he spake14 by the hand of his servant Jonah, the son of Amittai, the prophet, which [was] of Gathhepher. 2660 1662
For the LORD saw1 the affliction of Israel, [that it was] very bitter:6 for [there was] not any shut up,7 nor any left,7 nor any helper6 for Israel.
And the LORD said14 not that he would blot out2 the name of Israel from under heaven: but he saved55 them by the hand of Jeroboam the son of Joash.
Now the rest of the acts of Jeroboam, and all that he did,1 and his might, how he warred,8 and how he recovered52 Damascus, and Hamath, [which belonged] to Judah, for Israel, are they not written7 in the book of the chronicles 3117 of the kings of Israel?
And Jeroboam slept4 with his fathers, [even] with the kings of Israel; and Zachariah his son reigned4 in his stead.
