Bible: 2 Kings 11:1-3

Athaliah is Eliminated

11:1 When Athaliah the mother of Ahaziah saw that her son was dead, she was determined to destroy the entire royal line. 1  11:2 So Jehosheba, the daughter of King Joram and sister of Ahaziah, took Ahaziah’s son Joash and sneaked 2  him away from the rest of the royal descendants who were to be executed. She hid him and his nurse in the room where the bed covers were stored. 3  So he was hidden from Athaliah and escaped execution. 4  11:3 He hid out with his nurse in the Lord’s temple 5  for six years, while Athaliah was ruling over the land.
