Ahaziah King of Judah(A)

25 In the twelfth(B) year of Joram son of Ahab king of Israel, Ahaziah son of Jehoram king of Judah began to reign. 26 Ahaziah was twenty-two years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem one year. His mother’s name was Athaliah,(C) a granddaughter of Omri(D) king of Israel. 27 He followed the ways of the house of Ahab(E) and did evil(F) in the eyes of the Lord, as the house of Ahab had done, for he was related by marriage to Ahab’s family.

28 Ahaziah went with Joram son of Ahab to war against Hazael king of Aram at Ramoth Gilead.(G) The Arameans wounded Joram; 29 so King Joram returned to Jezreel(H) to recover from the wounds the Arameans had inflicted on him at Ramoth[a] in his battle with Hazael(I) king of Aram.

Then Ahaziah(J) son of Jehoram king of Judah went down to Jezreel to see Joram son of Ahab, because he had been wounded.
