New Revised Standard (NRS) New International Version (NIV)
1 Now when Athaliah, Ahaziah's mother, saw that her son was dead, she set about to destroy all the royal family. 1 When Athaliah the mother of Ahaziah saw that her son was dead, she proceeded to destroy the whole royal family.
2 But Jehosheba, King Joram's daughter, Ahaziah's sister, took Joash son of Ahaziah, and stole him away from among the king's children who were about to be killed; she put him and his nurse in a bedroom. Thus she hid him from Athaliah, so that he was not killed; 2 But Jehosheba, the daughter of King Jehoram and sister of Ahaziah, took Joash son of Ahaziah and stole him away from among the royal princes, who were about to be murdered. She put him and his nurse in a bedroom to hide him from Athaliah; so he was not killed.
3 he remained with her six years, hidden in the house of the Lord, while Athaliah reigned over the land. 3 He remained hidden with his nurse at the temple of the LORD for six years while Athaliah ruled the land.
