Bible: 2 Kings 13:22-25

13:22 Now King Hazael of Syria oppressed Israel throughout Jehoahaz’s reign. 1  13:23 But the Lord had mercy on them and felt pity for them. 2  He extended his favor to them 3  because of the promise he had made 4  to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. He has been unwilling to destroy them or remove them from his presence to this very day. 5  13:24 When King Hazael of Syria died, his son Ben Hadad replaced him as king. 13:25 Jehoahaz’s son Jehoash took back from 6  Ben Hadad son of Hazael the cities that he had taken from his father Jehoahaz in war. Joash defeated him three times and recovered the Israelite cities.
