1 Now Athalia, the mother of Ochozias, seeing that her son was dead, arose and slew all the royal seed.
2 But Josaba the daughter of king Joram, sister of Ochozias, took Joas, the son of Ochozias, and stole him from among the king’s sons that were slain, out of the bedchamber with his nurse: and hid him from the face of Athalia; so that he was not slain.
3 And he was with her six years, hid in the house of the Lord. And Athalia reigned over the land.
