Queen Athaliah rules Judah

1 When Athaliah, Ahaziah's mother, learned of her son's death, she immediately destroyed the entire royal family.
2 But Jehosheba, King Jehoram's daughter and Ahaziah's sister, secretly took Ahaziah's son Jehoash from the rest of the royal children who were about to be murdered and hid him in a bedroom along with his nurse. In this way Jehoash was hidden from Athaliah and wasn't murdered.
3 He remained hidden with his nurse in the LORD's temple for six years while Athaliah ruled the country.
