But Jehosheba, the daughter of King Joram, sister of Ahaziah◦, took Joash the son of Ahaziah and stole him away from the midst of the sons of the king who were being put··to··death, him and his nurse, in the bed◦ chamber. And they hid him from the face of Athaliah◦, and he was not put··to··death.
And in the seventh year Jehoiada sent, and he took the princes of hundreds for the Carites and the runners, and brought· them to▵ him ·into the house of Jehovah, and cut a covenant with them◦, and made them promise in the house of Jehovah, and showed them the son of the king.
And you shall encircle the king all around, a man◦ and his weapons◦ in his hand; and he who comes to▵ the planking◦ of the house of Jehovah* shall··be··put··to··death; and you shall be with◦ the king in his going··out and in his coming··in.
And the princes of the hundreds did according··to all that Jehoiada the priest commanded; and they took each··man◦ his man▵, those coming··in on the Sabbath and those going··out on the Sabbath, and they came to▵ Jehoiada the priest.
And he brought··out the son of the king, and put◦ upon him the crown◦ and the testimony; and they made· him ·king and anointed him, and they smote the palms together, and said, May· the king ·live!
And she saw, and behold, the king stood by◦ the pillar, according··to the judgment, and the princes and their trumpets were by the king; and all the people of the land were glad, and sounded the trumpets. And Athaliah rent her garments and proclaimed, Conspiracy, conspiracy!
And Jehoiada the priest commanded the princes of hundreds, the overseers of the host, and said unto▵ them, Bring· her ·out from inside the planking◦; and him who comes after her, put··to··death with the sword; for the priest said, Let· her not ·be··put··to··death in the house of Jehovah.
And all the people of the land came··into the house of Baal, and tore··down his altars, and his images they broke well, and Mattan, the priest of Baal, they killed before the altars. And the priest set overseers overseeing the house of Jehovah.
And he took the princes of hundreds, and the Carites, and the runners, and all the people of the land; and they brought· the king ·down from the house of Jehovah, and came· by the way of the gate of the runners ·into the house of the king. And he sat on the throne of the kings.
