Ahaziah Dies(A)

God caused Ahaziah’s ·death [downfall] when he went to visit Joram. Ahaziah arrived and went out with Joram to ·meet [fight] Jehu son of Nimshi, whom the Lord had ·appointed [L anointed] to destroy Ahab’s ·family [L house]. While Jehu was ·punishing [executing judgment against] Ahab’s ·family [L house], he found the ·leaders [officials] of Judah and the sons of Ahaziah’s ·relatives [brothers] who served Ahaziah, and Jehu killed them all [2 Kin. 10:12–14]. Then Jehu ·looked [searched] for Ahaziah. Jehu’s men caught him hiding in Samaria, so they brought him to Jehu. Then they killed and buried him. They said, “Ahaziah is a descendant of Jehoshaphat, and Jehoshaphat ·obeyed [sought] the Lord with all his heart.” No one in Ahaziah’s ·family [L house] ·had the power [was strong enough] to take control of the kingdom of Judah.
