232 Chronicles

1 But in the seventh year Jehoiada took courage, and entered into a compact with the commanders of hundreds, Azariah the son of Jeroham, Ishmael the son of Jehohanan, Azariah the son of Obed, Maaseiah the son of Adaiah, and Elishaphat the son of Zichri. Jehoiada's revolt against Athalieh. 2Chr.23.1-15 - 2Kgs.11.4-16
2 And they went about through Judah and gathered the Levites from all the cities of Judah, and the heads of fathers' houses of Israel, and they came to Jerusalem.  
3 And all the assembly made a covenant with the king in the house of God. And Jehoiada said to them, "Behold, the king's son! Let him reign, as Yahweh spoke concerning the sons of David.  
4 This is the thing that you shall do: of you priests and Levites who come off duty on the sabbath, one third shall be gatekeepers,  
5 and one third shall be at the king's house and one third at the Gate of the Foundation; and all the people shall be in the courts of the house of Yahweh.  
6 Let no one enter the house of Yahweh except the priests and ministering Levites; they may enter, for they are holy, but all the people shall keep the charge of Yahweh.  
7 The Levites shall surround the king, each with his weapons in his hand; and whoever enters the house shall be slain. Be with the king when he comes in, and when he goes out."  
8 The Levites and all Judah did according to all that Jehoiada the priest commanded. They each brought his men, who were to go off duty on the sabbath, with those who were to come on duty on the sabbath; for Jehoiada the priest did not dismiss the divisions.  
9 And Jehoiada the priest delivered to the captains the spears and the large and small shields that had been King David's, which were in the house of God;  
10 and he set all the people as a guard for the king, every man with his weapon in his hand, from the south side of the house to the north side of the house, around the altar and the house.  
11 Then he brought out the king's son, and put the crown upon him, and gave him the testimony; and they proclaimed him king, and Jehoiada and his sons anointed him, and they said, "Long live the king."  
12 When Athaliah heard the noise of the people running and praising the king, she went into the house of Yahweh to the people;  
13 and when she looked, there was the king standing by his pillar at the entrance, and the captains and the trumpeters beside the king, and all the people of the land rejoicing and blowing trumpets, and the singers with their musical instruments leading in the celebration. And Athaliah rent her clothes, and cried, "Treason! Treason!"  
14 Then Jehoiada the priest brought out the captains who were set over the army, saying to them, "Bring her out between the ranks; any one who follows her is to be slain with the sword." For the priest said, "Do not slay her in the house of Yahweh."  
15 So they laid hands on her; and she went into the entrance of the horse gate of the king's house, and they slew her there.  
16 And Jehoiada made a covenant between himself and all the people and the king that they should be Yahweh's people.

JOASH king of Judah. Jehoiada's reforms. 2Chr.23.16-21 (Judah) - 835/34bce - 2Kgs.11.17-20
17 Then all the people went to the house of Baal, and tore it down; his altars and his images they broke in pieces, and they slew Mattan the priest of Baal before the altars.  
18 And Jehoiada posted watchmen for the house of Yahweh under the direction of the Levitical priests and the Levites whom David had organized to be in charge of the house of Yahweh, to offer burnt offerings to Yahweh, as it is written in the law of Moses, with rejoicing and with singing, according to the order of David.  
19 He stationed the gatekeepers at the gates of the house of Yahweh so that no one should enter who was in any way unclean.  
20 And he took the captains, the nobles, the governors of the people, and all the people of the land; and they brought the king down from the house of Yahweh, marching through the upper gate to the king's house. And they set the king upon the royal throne.  
21 So all the people of the land rejoiced; and the city was quiet, after Athaliah had been slain with the sword.

Notes: This webpage enables you to select-a-version from the Bible versions held on the katapi bible database.
The katapi New Standard Bible is a very light revision of the RSV. The changes are: (1) In places where 'the LORD', 'O LORD' occurs in the RSV, (it represents the tetragrammaton - YHWH - which is in the hebrew text), I have printed 'YHWH' in black. The later vowel sounds I have shown in the colour gray;
(2) I have removed the quotation marks and hyphens that were used in so many names in the RSV as an aid to correct pronunciation. This now brings it in line with all other English versions, and makes any word-search more accurate.
(3) I have changed all (I hope!) of the RSV archaic language sections to modern.
The katapi New Study Bible reference section displays links to parallel passages, and to direct quotations by New Testament authors to Old Testament passages. Quotations of OT passages by NT authors can in most cases be viewed within their context of the OT passage as a whole, with the quoted text displayed, against a subdued background. Any mismatches, truncated verses, other mistakes ?
