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 Ramothgilead;
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.
