And he went with Joram the son of Ahab
His mother's brother, and so his uncle:
to the war against Hazael king of Syria in
which he went to recover out of the hands of the king of Syria, as his father Ahab had attempted in his time; in which he was assisted by Jehoshaphat, as now Joram was by a grandson of his:
and the Syrians wounded Joram;
as they did his father Ahab at the same place, though his wound was not mortal, as his father's was.
