NCV 1 Amaziah son of Joash became king of Judah during the second year Jehoash son of Jehoahaz was king of Israel. NIV 1 In the second year of Jehoash son of Jehoahaz king of Israel, Amaziah son of Joash king of Judah began to reign.

NIV 2 He was twenty-five years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem twenty-nine years. His mother’s name was Jehoaddan; she was from Jerusalem. NCV 3 Amaziah did what the Lord said was right. He did everything his father Joash had done, but he did not do as his ancestor David had done. NIV 3 He did what was right in the eyes of the LORD, but not as his father David had done. In everything he followed the example of his father Joash. NCV 4 The places where gods were worshiped were not removed, so the people still sacrificed and burned incense there.

NIV 5 After the kingdom was firmly in his grasp, he executed the officials who had murdered his father the king. NCV 6 But he did not put to death the children of the murderers because of the rule written in the Book of the Teachings of Moses. The Lord had commanded: "Parents must not be put to death when their children do wrong, and children must not be put to death when their parents do wrong. Each must die for his own sins." NIV 6 Yet he did not put the children of the assassins to death, in accordance with what is written in the Book of the Law of Moses where the LORD commanded: “Parents are not to be put to death for their children, nor children put to death for their parents; each will die for their own sin.” NCV 7 In battle Amaziah killed ten thousand Edomites in the Valley of Salt.

It said, 'Let your daughter marry my son.' But then a wild animal from Lebanon came by, walking on and crushing the thornbush. NIV 9 But Jehoash king of Israel replied to Amaziah king of Judah: “A thistle in Lebanon sent a message to a cedar in Lebanon, ‘Give your daughter to my son in marriage.’ Then a wild beast in Lebanon came along and trampled the thistle underfoot. NCV 10 You have defeated Edom, but you have become proud. Stay at home and brag. Don't ask for trouble, or you and Judah will be defeated." NIV 10 You have indeed defeated Edom and now you are arrogant. Glory in your victory, but stay at home! Why ask for trouble and cause your own downfall and that of Judah also?” NCV 11 But Amaziah would not listen, so Jehoash king of Israel went to attack.

NCV 15 The other acts of Jehoash and his victories, including his war against Amaziah king of Judah, are written in the book of the history of the kings of Israel. NIV 15 As for the other events of the reign of Jehoash, what he did and his achievements, including his war against Amaziah king of Judah, are they not written in the book of the annals of the kings of Israel? NCV 16 Jehoash died and was buried in Samaria with the kings of Israel, and his son Jeroboam became king in his place. NIV 16 Jehoash rested with his ancestors and was buried in Samaria with the kings of Israel. And Jeroboam his son succeeded him as king.
