Athaliah Queen of Judah

1 When R303 Athaliah the mother of Ahaziah saw that her son was dead, she rose and destroyed all the royal offspring. F159 2 But Jehosheba, the daughter of King Joram, sister of Ahaziah, took R304 Joash the son of Ahaziah and stole him from among the king's sons who were being put to death, and placed him and his nurse in the bedroom. So they hid him from Athaliah, and he was not put to death. 3 So he was hidden with her in the house of the LORD six years, while Athaliah was reigning over the land.

4 Now R305 in the seventh year Jehoiada sent and brought the captains of hundreds of the R306 Carites and of the guard, F160 and brought them to him in the house of the LORD. Then he made a covenant with them and put them under oath in the house of the LORD, and showed them the king's son. 5 He commanded them, saying, "This is the thing that you shall do: one R307 third of you, who come in on the sabbath and keep watch over the king's house 6 (one third also shall be at the gate Sur, and one third at the gate behind the guards), F161 shall F162 keep watch over the house for defense. 7 "Two parts of you, even all who go out on the sabbath, shall also keep watch over the house of the LORD for the king. 8 "Then you shall surround the king, each with his weapons in his hand; and whoever comes within the ranks shall be put to death. And be R308 with the king when he goes out and when he comes in."

9 So the captains of hundreds did R309 according to all that Jehoiada the priest commanded. And each one of them took his men who were to come in on the sabbath, with those who were to go out on the sabbath, and came to Jehoiada the priest. 10 The R310 priest gave to the captains of hundreds the spears and shields that had been King David's, which were in the house of the LORD. 11 The guards F163 stood each with his weapons in his hand, from the right side F164 of the house to the left side F164 of the house, by the altar and by the house, around the king. 12 Then he brought the king's son out and put R311 the crown on him and gave him the R312 testimony; and they made him king and anointed him, and they clapped their hands and said, "Long R313 live the king!"

13 When R314 Athaliah heard the noise of the guard and of the people, she came to the people in the house of the LORD. 14 She looked and behold, the king was standing by R315 the pillar, according to the custom, with the captains and the trumpeters F165 beside the king; and all R316 the people of the land rejoiced and blew trumpets. Then Athaliah tore R317 her clothes and cried, "Treason! R318 Treason!" 15 And Jehoiada the priest commanded the captains of hundreds who were appointed over the army and said to them, "Bring her out between F166 the ranks, and whoever follows her put to death with the sword." For the priest said, "Let her not be put to death in the house of the LORD." 16 So they seized F167 her, and when she arrived at the horses' entrance of the king's house, she was put R319 to death there.

17 Then Jehoiada R320 made a covenant between the LORD and the king and the people, that they would be the LORD'S people, also between R321 the king and the people. 18 All the people of the land went to the R322 house of Baal, and tore it down; his R323 altars and his images they broke in pieces thoroughly, and killed R324 Mattan the priest of Baal before the altars. And the priest appointed officers F168 over the house of the LORD. 19 He took the captains of hundreds and the Carites R325 and the guards F169 and all the people of the land; and they brought the king down from the house of the LORD, and came by the way of the R326 gate of the guards F169 to the king's house. And he sat on the throne of the kings. 20 So all R327 the people of the land rejoiced and the city was quiet. For they had put Athaliah to death with the sword at the king's house.

21 Jehoash R328 F170 was seven years old when he became king.
