History

It was evident that Jehoram's son, Ahaziah, learned nothing from his father's miserable example. The son of Athaliah, the grandson of Ahab and Jezebel, lasted only one year as Judah's ruler and repeated many of his father's sins. He sided with King Joram of Israel, and was eventually killed by Jehu who was commissioned by God to destroy the family of Ahab. When Azahiah's mother, Athaliah saw that her son was dead, she proceeded to destroy all of her grandsons, save one - Joash - who ruled the land for the next six years.

The lesson from this king is clear - evil is a choice - and those who practice it will suffer great consequences.
