Amaziah King of Judah

1 Amaziah was twenty-five years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem twenty-nine years. His mother’s name was Jehoaddan; she was from Jerusalem.
2 He did what was right in the eyes of the LORD, but not wholeheartedly.
3 After the kingdom was firmly in his control, he executed the officials who had murdered his father the king.
4 Yet he did not put their children to death, but acted in accordance with what is written in the Law, in the Book of Moses, where the LORD commanded: “Parents shall not be put to death for their children, nor children be put to death for their parents; each will die for their own sin.”a
