Then the inhabitants of Jerusalem made Ahaziah his youngest son King in his Place For the Raiders who came with the Arabians into the camp had killed all The older Sons So ahaziah the son of johoram King of Judah reigned Ahaziah was 42 years old when he became King and he reigned one year in Jerusalem His mother's name was athalaya the Granddaughter of Omri He also walked in the ways of the House Of Ahab for his mother advised him to do Wickedly Therefore he did evil in the sight of The Lord like the house of Ahab For they were his counselors after the Death of his father to his destruction He also followed their advice and went With johoram the son of Ahab king of Israel to war against Hazel king of Syria at rameth Gilead And the syrians wounded joram Then he returned to Jezreel to recover From the wounds which he had received at Rhema when he fought against Hazel king Of Syria And Azariah the son of johoram King of Judah went down to see jahoram the son Of Ahab in Jezreel because he was sick His going to joram was God's occasion
