2 Kings 11

This text is parallel to the prior post, 2 Chronicles 23. It was guessed at only 75%. The text of this chapter has a verse that JB omits because the Hebrew seems so corrupt. LXX omits the oddest word. For מסח I picked נסח as the stem referring to the house with the child king in it, a tempting מסה target for the renegade queen mother. When one reads the KJV in some of these texts, it is no wonder that one's 20th and 21st century eyes glaze over.

2 Kings 11 Fn Min Max Syll
וַֽעֲתַלְיָה֙ אֵ֣ם אֲחַזְיָ֔הוּ רָאֲתָ֖ה כִּ֣י מֵ֣ת בְּנָ֑הּ
וַתָּ֙קָם֙ וַתְּאַבֵּ֔ד אֵ֖ת כָּל־זֶ֥רַע הַמַּמְלָכָֽה
1 And Ataliah the mother of Achaziah saw that her son was dead,
and she arose and she eliminated all the seed of the kingdom.
3e 4B 16
14
וַתִּקַּ֣ח יְהוֹשֶׁ֣בַע בַּת־הַמֶּֽלֶךְ־י֠וֹרָם אֲח֨וֹת אֲחַזְיָ֜הוּ אֶת־יוֹאָ֣שׁ בֶּן־אֲחַזְיָ֗ה וַתִּגְנֹ֤ב אֹתוֹ֙ מִתּ֤וֹךְ בְּנֵֽי־הַמֶּ֙לֶךְ֙ הַמּ֣וּמָתִ֔ים אֹת֥וֹ וְאֶת־מֵינִקְתּ֖וֹ בַּחֲדַ֣ר הַמִּטּ֑וֹת
וַיַּסְתִּ֧רוּ אֹת֛וֹ מִפְּנֵ֥י עֲתַלְיָ֖הוּ וְלֹ֥א הוּמָֽת
2 But Jehosheba, the daughter of the king Joram, a sister of Achaziah, took Joash child of Ahaziah, and stole him from among the children of the king that were put to death, him and his nanny, in the inner room of the couches,
and they hid him from the presence of Ataliah and he was not put to death.

16
וַיְהִ֤י אִתָּהּ֙ בֵּ֣ית יְהוָ֔ה מִתְחַבֵּ֖א שֵׁ֣שׁ שָׁנִ֑ים
וַעֲתַלְיָ֖ה מֹלֶ֥כֶת עַל־הָאָֽרֶץ
3 And he was with her in the house of Yahweh, camouflaged, six years,
and Ataliah reigned over the land.

וּבַשָּׁנָ֣ה הַ֠שְּׁבִיעִית שָׁלַ֨ח יְהוֹיָדָ֜ע וַיִּקַּ֣ח ׀ אֶת־שָׂרֵ֣י הַמֵּא֗וֹת לַכָּרִי֙ וְלָ֣רָצִ֔ים וַיָּבֵ֥א אֹתָ֛ם אֵלָ֖יו בֵּ֣ית יְהוָ֑ה
וַיִּכְרֹת֩ לָהֶ֨ם בְּרִ֜ית וַיַּשְׁבַּ֤ע אֹתָם֙ בְּבֵ֣ית יְהוָ֔ה וַיַּ֥רְא אֹתָ֖ם אֶת־בֶּן־הַמֶּֽלֶךְ
4 And in the seventh year Jehoiada sent and he took the chiefs of hundreds of the Karians and of the footmen, and brought them to him at the house of Yahweh,
and cut for them a covenant, and made an oath with them in the house of Yahweh, and showed them the child of the king.

וִהְי֥וּ אֶת־הַמֶּ֖לֶךְ בְּצֵאת֥וֹ וּבְבֹאֽוֹ
8 And you will encompass the king round about, each his instruments in his hand, and who comes to the slats will be put to death.
