Jehoahaz's Reign and Captivity

2 Kings 23

31 v Jehoahaz was twenty-three years old when he became king, and he reigned three months in Jerusalem. His mother's name was w Hamutal the daughter of Jeremiah of Libnah. 32 And he did evil in the sight of the LORD, according to all that his fathers had done. 33 Now Pharaoh Necho put him in prison x at Riblah in the land of Hamath, that he might not reign in Jerusalem; and he imposed on the land a tribute of one hundred talents of silver and a talent of gold. 34 Then y Pharaoh Necho made Eliakim the son of Josiah king in place of his father Josiah, and z changed his name to a Jehoiakim. And Pharaoh took Jehoahaz b and went to Egypt, and 1 he 2 died there. 35 So Jehoiakim gave c the silver and gold to Pharaoh; but he taxed the land to give money according to the command of Pharaoh; he exacted the silver and gold from the people of the land, from every one according to his assessment, to give it to Pharaoh Necho.
