Bible: 2 Chronicles 21:1-4

21:1 Jehoshaphat passed away 1  and was buried with his ancestors 2  in the City of David. 3  His son Jehoram 4  replaced him as king.

Jehoram’s Reign

21:2 His brothers, Jehoshaphat’s sons, were Azariah, Jechiel, Zechariah, Azariahu, Michael, and Shephatiah. All of these were sons of King Jehoshaphat of Israel. 5  21:3 Their father gave them many presents, including silver, gold, and other precious items, along with fortified cities in Judah. But he gave the kingdom to Jehoram because he was the firstborn.

21:4 Jehoram took control of his father’s kingdom and became powerful. 6  Then he killed all his brothers, 7  as well as some of the officials of Israel.
