Amaziah putteth him to death which slew his father. 10 He sendeth back them of Israel. 11 He overcometh the Edomites. 14 He falleth to idolatry. 17 And Joash king of Israel overcometh Amaziah. 27 He is slain by a conspiracy. Amaziah was five and twenty years old when he began to reign, and he reigned nine and twenty years in Jerusalem, and his mother’s name was Jehoaddan of Jerusalem.
Amaziah was twenty-five years old when he became king and reigned twenty-nine years in Jerusalem. His mother was Jehoaddin from Jerusalem. He lived well before God, doing the right thing for the most part. But he wasn’t wholeheartedly devoted to God. When he had the affairs of the kingdom well in hand, he executed the palace guard who had assassinated his father the king. But he didn’t kill the sons of the assassins—he was mindful of what God commanded in The Revelation of Moses, that parents shouldn’t be executed for their childrens’ sins, nor children for their parents’. We each pay personally for our sins.
