1 And when Athaliah the mother of Ahaziah saw that her son was dead, she arose and destroyed all the seeda royal.
2 But Jehosheba,b the daughter of king Joram, sister of Ahaziah, took Joash the son of Ahaziah, and stole him from among the king's sons which were slain; and they hid him, even him and his nurse, in the bedchamber* from Athaliah, so that he was not slain.
3 And he was with her hid in the house of the LORD six years. And Athaliah did reign over the land.
