Kings of Israel: Jehoahaz and Jehoash

1 In the twenty-third year of Joash the son of Ahaziah, king of Judah, Jehoahaz the son of Jehu became king over Israel at Samaria, and he reigned seventeen years. 2 He did evil in the sight of the LORD, and followed the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, 1with which he made Israel sin; he did not turn from them. 3 2So the anger of the LORD was kindled against Israel, and He gave them continually into the hand of 3Hazael king of Aram, and into the hand of 4Ben-hadad the son of Hazael. 4 Then 5Jehoahaz entreated the favor of the LORD, and the LORD listened to him; for 6He saw the oppression of Israel, how the king of Aram oppressed them. 5 The LORD gave Israel a a7deliverer, so that they bescaped from under the hand of the Arameans; and the sons of Israel lived in their tents as formerly . 6 Nevertheless they did not turn away from the sins of the house of Jeroboam, 8with which he made Israel sin, but walked in cthem; and 9the Asherah also remained standing in Samaria. 7 For he left to Jehoahaz of the darmy not more than fifty horsemen and ten chariots and 10,000 footmen, for the king of Aram had destroyed them and 10made them like the dust at threshing. 8 Now the rest of the acts of Jehoahaz, and all that he did and his might, are they not written in the Book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Israel? 9 And Jehoahaz slept with his fathers, and they buried him in Samaria; and Joash his son became king in his place.
