Death of Joash(A)

19 Now the rest of the acts of [a]Joash, and all that he did, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah?

20 And (B)his servants arose and formed a conspiracy, and killed Joash in the house of [b]the Millo, which goes down to Silla. 21 For [c]Jozachar the son of Shimeath and Jehozabad the son of [d]Shomer, his servants, struck him. So he died, and they buried him with his fathers in the City of David. Then (C)Amaziah his son reigned in his place.
