The Reign Of Athaliah

10 As soon as Ahaziah's mother Athaliah learned that her son had died, she set out to destroy the entire royal family of Judah. 11 However, the king's daughter Jehoshabeath took Ahaziah's son Joash away from the king's children who were about to be assassinated and hid him and his nurse in a bedroom. That's how King Jehoram's daughter Jehoshabeath, who was also the priest Jehoiada's wife and Ahaziah's sister, hid him from Athaliah. As a result, she was not able to kill him. 12 Joash remained with them for six years, hidden in God's Temple while Athaliah reigned over the land.
