(Read 2 Chronicles 24 Part 1 First)

24 Although the Arameans attacked with only a small army, the LORD helped them conquer the much larger army of Judah. The people of Judah had abandoned the LORD, the God of their ancestors, so judgment was executed against Joash.

25 The Arameans withdrew, leaving Joash severely wounded. But his own officials decided to kill him for murdering the son of Jehoiada the priest. They assassinated him as he lay in bed. Then he was buried in the City of David, but not in the royal cemetery.

26 The assassins were Jozabad,* the son of an Ammonite woman named Shimeath, and Jehozabad, the son of a Moabite woman named Shomer.*1

27 The complete story about the sons of Joash, the prophecies about him, and the record of his restoration of the Temple of God are written in [The Commentary on the Book of the Kings.] When Joash died, his son Amaziah became the next king.

Notes:
