25 In the twelfth year of Joram the son of Ahab, king of Israel, Ahaziah the son of Jehoram, king of Judah, began to reign. 26 Ahaziah was z twenty-two years old when he became king, and he reigned one year in Jerusalem. His mother's name was Athaliah the granddaughter of Omri, king of Israel. 27 a And he walked in the way of the house of Ahab, and did evil in the sight of the LORD, like the house of Ahab, for he was the son-in-law of the house of Ahab.
28 Now he went b with Joram the son of Ahab to war against Hazael king of Syria at c Ramoth Gilead; and the Syrians wounded Joram. 29 Then d King Joram went back to Jezreel to recover from the wounds which the Syrians had inflicted on him at 1 Ramah, when he fought against Hazael king of Syria. e And Ahaziah the son of Jehoram, king of Judah, went down to see Joram the son of Ahab in Jezreel, because he was sick.New King James Version (NKJV) Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson, Inc.
