  • 1 And the inhabitants of Jerusalem made Ahaziah, his youngest son, king in his place, for the band of men that came with the Arabians to the camp had killed all the older sons. So Ahaziah the son of Jehoram king of Judah reigned.
    2 Ahaziah was twenty-two years old when he began to reign, and he reigned one year in Jerusalem. His mother's name was Athaliah, the granddaughter of Omri.
    3 He also walked in the ways of the house of Ahab, for his mother was his counselor in doing wickedly.
    4 He did what was evil in the sight of the LORD, as the house of Ahab had done. For after the death of his father they were his counselors, to his undoing.
    5 He even followed their counsel and went with Jehoram the son of Ahab king of Israel to make war against Hazael king of Syria at Ramoth-gilead. And the Syrians wounded Joram,
    6 and he returned to be healed in Jezreel of the wounds that he had received at Ramah, when he fought against Hazael king of Syria. And Ahaziah the son of Jehoram king of Judah went down to see Joram the son of Ahab in Jezreel, because he was wounded.
    7 But it was ordained by God that the downfall of Ahaziah should come about through his going to visit Joram. For when he came there, he went out with Jehoram to meet Jehu the son of Nimshi, whom the LORD had anointed to destroy the house of Ahab.
    8 And when Jehu was executing judgment on the house of Ahab, he met the princes of Judah and the sons of Ahaziah's brothers, who attended Ahaziah, and he killed them.
    9 He searched for Ahaziah, and he was captured while hiding in Samaria, and he was brought to Jehu and put to death. They buried him, for they said, "He is the grandson of Jehoshaphat, who sought the LORD with all his heart." And the house of Ahaziah had no
    10 Now when Athaliah the mother of Ahaziah saw that her son was dead, she arose and destroyed all the royal family of the house of Judah.
    11 But Jehoshabeath, the daughter of the king, took Joash the son of Ahaziah and stole him away from among the king's sons who were about to be put to death, and she put him and his nurse in a bedroom. Thus Jehoshabeath, the daughter of King Jehoram and wife
    12 And he remained with them six years, hidden in the house of God, while Athaliah reigned over the land.

Thinking & Understanding
Jehoram king of Judah was ruined because of his wife Athaliah, and his son Ahaziah also ended up on the path of destruction because of Athaliah, his mother. Ahaziah went to see Joram king of Israel, who had been wounded, and died at the hands of Jehu, through whom judgement was executed on the house of Ahab. Athaliah used this opportunity to destroy the royal family of Judah and take over the reins of the kingdom. However, Jehoshabeath, a sister of Ahaziah and woman of faith, preserved the royal line of Judah by hiding her nephew Joash in the house of God (vv. 10-12).


Who is God?
Vv. 7-9 God destroys those who ally themselves with sin. By making Ahaziah die at the hands of Jehu, God made Ahaziah’s allies meet the same fate as idol worshippers. No place is safe as long as we are in the company of those who are evil. Who are we keeping company with?


What lesson is God teaching me?
Vv. 10-12 The resolve and sacrifice of one woman ensured the preservation of Jesus’ bloodline. Jehoshabeath, the faithful wife of Jehoiada, raised her nephew for six years, so that the royal line of David could be continued. How do we respond to powerful worldly attacks by those who, like Athaliah, try to destroy the truth and the word?


Prayer
Lord, help us to live remembering that, whoever we choose to be our allies will decide our fate.
