2 Chronicles 22:1
And the inhabitants of Jerusalem made Ahaziah his youngest
son king in his stead…
He being the only surviving one of the sons of Jehoram, the same with Jehoahaz, (2 Chronicles 21:17) who was saved when the rest were taken captive and slain, by his mother Athaliah, and he made his escape, and that she also escaped is clear from (2 Chronicles 22:10)
for the band of men that came with the Arabians to the camp;
that is, of the Philistines, (2 Chronicles 21:16) , which band seems to be a band or company of thieves and robbers, as the Septuagint, cruel and barbarous, as the action ascribed to them shows:
[for they] had slain all the eldest;
sons of Jehoram; the Philistines and Arabians only carried them away captives, but those slew them in cold blood:
so Ahaziah the son of Jehoram king of Judah reigned;
being declared his successor by the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
