2 Kings 14:16-26 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
16 Jehoash rested with his fathers and was buried in Samaria with the kings of Israel. And Jeroboam his son succeeded him as king. 17 Amaziah son of Joash king of Judah lived for fifteen years after the death of Jehoash son of Jehoahaz king of Israel. 18 As for the other events of Amaziah's reign, are they not written in the book of the annals of the kings of Judah? 19 They conspired1 against him in Jerusalem, and he fled to Lachish,2 but they sent men after him to Lachish and killed him there. 20 He was brought back by horse3 and was buried in Jerusalem with his fathers, in the City of David. 21 Then all the people of Judah took Azariah,a4 who was sixteen years old, and made him king in place of his father Amaziah. 22 He was the one who rebuilt Elath5 and restored it to Judah after Amaziah rested with his fathers.

Jeroboam II King of Israel

23 In the fifteenth year of Amaziah son of Joash king of Judah, Jeroboam6 son of Jehoash king of Israel became king in Samaria, and he reigned forty-one years. 24 He did evil in the eyes of the LORD and did not turn away from any of the sins of Jeroboam son of Nebat, which he had caused Israel to commit.7 25 He was the one who restored the boundaries of Israel from Lebob Hamath8 to the Sea of the Arabah,c9 in accordance with the word of the LORD, the God of Israel, spoken through his servant Jonah10 son of Amittai, the prophet from Gath Hepher. 26 The LORD had seen how bitterly everyone in Israel, whether slave or free,11 was suffering;12 there was no one to help them.13
