23:1 And in the seventh [H7637] year [H8141] Jehoiada [H3077] strengthened [H2388] himself, and took [H3947] the captains [H8269] of hundreds [H3967] , Azariah [H5838] the son [H1121] of Jeroham [H3395] , and Ishmael [H3458] the son [H1121] of Jehohanan [H3076] , and Azariah [H5838] the son [H1121] of Obed [H5744] , and Maaseiah [H4641] the son [H1121] of Adaiah [H5718] , and Elishaphat [H478] the son [H1121] of Zichri [H2147] , into covenant [H1285] with him.

23:2 And they went about [H5437] in Judah [H3063] , and gathered [H6908] the Levites [H3881] out of all the cities [H5892] of Judah [H3063] , and the chief [H7218] of the fathers [H1] of Israel [H3478] , and they came [H935] to Jerusalem [H3389] .

23:3 And all the congregation [H6951] made [H3772] a covenant [H1285] with the king [H4428] in the house [H1004] of God [H430] . And he said [H559] unto them, Behold, the king's [H4428] son [H1121] shall reign [H4427] , as the LORD [H3068] hath said [H1696] of the sons [H1121] of David [H1732] .

23:4 This [is] the thing [H1697] that ye shall do [H6213] ; A third part [H7992] of you entering [H935] on the sabbath [H7676] , of the priests [H3548] and of the Levites [H3881] , [shall be] porters [H7778] of the doors [H5592] ;(doors: Heb. thresholds)

23:5 And a third part [H7992] [shall be] at the king's [H4428] house [H1004] ; and a third part [H7992] at the gate [H8179] of the foundation [H3247] : and all the people [H5971] [shall be] in the courts [H2691] of the house [H1004] of the LORD [H3068] .

23:6 But let none come [H935] into the house [H1004] of the LORD [H3068] , save the priests [H3548] , and they that minister [H8334] of the Levites [H3881] ; they shall go in [H935] , for they [are] holy [H6944] : but all the people [H5971] shall keep [H8104] the watch [H4931] of the LORD [H3068] .

23:7 And the Levites [H3881] shall compass [H5362] the king [H4428] round about [H5439] , every man [H376] with his weapons [H3627] in his hand [H3027] ; and whosoever [else] cometh [H935] into the house [H1004] , he shall be put to death [H4191] : but be ye with the king [H4428] when he cometh in [H935] , and when he goeth out [H3318] .

23:8 So the Levites [H3881] and all Judah [H3063] did [H6213] according to all things that Jehoiada [H3077] the priest [H3548] had commanded [H6680] , and took [H3947] every man [H376] his men [H582] that were to come in [H935] on the sabbath [H7676] , with them that were to go [H3318] [out] on the sabbath [H7676] : for Jehoiada [H3077] the priest [H3548] dismissed [H6358] not the courses [H4256] .

23:9 Moreover Jehoiada [H3077] the priest [H3548] delivered [H5414] to the captains [H8269] of hundreds [H3967] spears [H2595] , and bucklers [H4043] , and shields [H7982] , that [had been] king [H4428] David's [H1732] , which [were] in the house [H1004] of God [H430] .

23:10 And he set [H5975] all the people [H5971] , every man [H376] having his weapon [H7973] in his hand [H3027] , from the right [H3233] side [H3802] of the temple [H1004] to the left [H8042] side [H3802] of the temple [H1004] , along by the altar [H4196] and the temple [H1004] , by the king [H4428] round about [H5439] .(side: Heb. shoulder)(temple: Heb. house)

23:11 Then they brought out [H3318] the king's [H4428] son [H1121] , and put [H5414] upon him the crown [H5145] , and [gave him] the testimony [H5715] , and made him king [H4427] . And Jehoiada [H3077] and his sons [H1121] anointed [H4886] him, and said [H559] , God save [H2421] the king [H4428] .(God: Heb. Let the king live)

23:12 Now when Athaliah [H6271] heard [H8085] the noise [H6963] of the people [H5971] running [H7323] and praising [H1984] the king [H4428] , she came [H935] to the people [H5971] into the house [H1004] of the LORD [H3068] :

23:13 And she looked [H7200] , and, behold, the king [H4428] stood [H5975] at his pillar [H5982] at the entering in [H3996] , and the princes [H8269] and the trumpets [H2689] by the king [H4428] : and all the people [H5971] of the land [H776] rejoiced [H8056] , and sounded [H8628] with trumpets [H2689] , also the singers [H7891] with instruments [H3627] of musick [H7892] , and such as taught [H3045] to sing praise [H1984] . Then Athaliah [H6271] rent [H7167] her clothes [H899] , and said [H559] , Treason [H7195] , Treason [H7195] .(Treason: Heb. Conspiracy)

23:14 Then Jehoiada [H3077] the priest [H3548] brought out [H3318] the captains [H8269] of hundreds [H3967] that were set over [H6485] the host [H2428] , and said [H559] unto them, Have her forth [H3318] of the ranges [H1004] [H7713] : and whoso followeth [H935] [H310] her, let him be slain [H4191] with the sword [H2719] . For the priest [H3548] said [H559] , Slay [H4191] her not in the house [H1004] of the LORD [H3068] .

23:15 So they laid [H7760] hands [H3027] on her; and when she was come [H935] to the entering [H3996] of the horse [H5483] gate [H8179] by the king's [H4428] house [H1004] , they slew [H4191] her there.

23:16 And Jehoiada [H3077] made [H3772] a covenant [H1285] between him, and between all the people [H5971] , and between the king [H4428] , that they should be the LORD'S [H3068] people [H5971] .

23:17 Then all the people [H5971] went [H935] to the house [H1004] of Baal [H1168] , and brake it down [H5422] , and brake [H7665] his altars [H4196] and his images [H6754] in pieces [H7665] , and slew [H2026] Mattan [H4977] the priest [H3548] of Baal [H1168] before [H6440] the altars [H4196] .

23:18 Also Jehoiada [H3077] appointed [H7760] the offices [H6486] of the house [H1004] of the LORD [H3068] by the hand [H3027] of the priests [H3548] the Levites [H3881] , whom David [H1732] had distributed [H2505] in the house [H1004] of the LORD [H3068] , to offer [H5927] the burnt offerings [H5930] of the LORD [H3068] , as [it is] written [H3789] in the law [H8451] of Moses [H4872] , with rejoicing [H8057] and with singing [H7892] , [as it was ordained] by [H3027] David [H1732] .(as it was: Heb. by the hands of David)

23:19 And he set [H5975] the porters [H7778] at the gates [H8179] of the house [H1004] of the LORD [H3068] , that none [which was] unclean [H2931] in any thing [H1697] should enter in [H935] .

23:20 And he took [H3947] the captains [H8269] of hundreds [H3967] , and the nobles [H117] , and the governors [H4910] of the people [H5971] , and all the people [H5971] of the land [H776] , and brought down [H3381] the king [H4428] from the house [H1004] of the LORD [H3068] : and they came [H935] through [H8432] the high [H5945] gate [H8179] into the king's [H4428] house [H1004] , and set [H3427] the king [H4428] upon the throne [H3678] of the kingdom [H4467] .

23:21 And all the people [H5971] of the land [H776] rejoiced [H8055] : and the city [H5892] was quiet [H8252] , after that they had slain [H4191] Athaliah [H6271] with the sword [H2719] .
