Jehu Murders Princes of Judah
8 aIt came° about when Jehu° was executing° judgment° on the house° of Ahab°, he found° the princes° of Judah° and the sons° of Ahaziah’s° brothers° ministering° to Ahaziah°, and slew° them. 9 aHe also sought° Ahaziah°, and they caught° him while he was hiding° in Samaria°; they brought° him to Jehu°, put° him to death° band buried° him.

So Jehoshabeath°, the daughter° of King° Jehoram°, the wife° of Jehoiada° the priest° (for she was the sister° of Ahaziah°), hid° him from Athaliah° so that she would not put° him to death°. 12 He was hidden° with them in the house° of God° six° years° while Athaliah° reigned° over° the land°.
