RF CH2 23:1 (878 B.C.) Jehoiada the High Priest decides to Restore the Line of David to the Throne in Azariah.
But in the seventh year Jehoiada emboldened himself, and took Azariah,-ben-Jerokharn, and Ishmael,-ben-Jokhanan, and Azarihu,-ben-Aubed, and Masihu,-ben-Adihu, and Alishafat,-ben-Zikri, Captains in the Army, into his confidence,
RF CH2 23:2 and they travelled about Judea, and invited the Levites from all the towns of Judea, and the Ancestral Chiefs of Israel, to come to Jerusalem,
RF CH2 23:3 when all those assembled made an agreement in the House of GOD with the King. Then he said to them, "You know that a Prince should reign, as the EVER-LIVING promised to the sons of David.
RF CH2 23:4 What you must do therefore is this;—A third part of you must come on the Sabbath to the Priests and Levites who guard the Thresholds of the Gates;
RF CH2 23:5 and a third go to the Royal Palace and a third go to the Gate of Consultation, when all the People are in the Courts of the House of the EVER-LIVING.
RF CH2 23:6 But let none enter the Lord's House, except the Priests, who minister, with the Levites.—They may enter, for they are sacred,—and let all your forces guard the Ministrations of the EVER-LIVING.
RF CH2 23:7 Then let the Levites close round the King, each with his vessels in his hands. But kill all else who wish to enter the Temple; but you must accompany the King when he enters and when he departs."
RF CH2 23:8 So the Levites, and the Representatives of Judea, did everything as Jehoiada the Priest ordered, and each took his men on the arrival of the Sabbath,—the Sabbath on which they were to act, when Jehoiada the Priest did not dismiss the courses.
RF CH2 23:9 Jehoiada the Priest then gave the Captains the spears and shields, and bucklers which had been King David's, and were in the Temple of GOD.—
RF CH2 23:10 He next stationed all the force, each with his weapon in his hand, from the right shoulder of the Temple, to the left shoulder of the Temple; and from the Altar to surround the Royal apartment.
RF CH2 23:11 Afterwards he brought out the Prince, and they paid homage to him, and administered the Oath, and crowned him. Jehoiada and his sons consecrated him, and exclaimed,—"May the King live!"
RF CH2 23:12 Athaliah, however, heard the noise of the people running and cheering the King, so she came to the Parliament in the House of the EVER-LIVING,
RF CH2 23:13 and when she looked, and saw the King standing on a platform at the entrance, with the Nobles and Trumpeters around the King, and all the people in the place in delight and the trumpeters and singers sounding with their instruments of music as a choir of thanksgiving,—then Athaliah tore her robes, and exclaimed, "Treason! Treason!"
RF CH2 23:14 But Jehoiada the Priest ordered out the Captains he had appointed over the force, and said to them,—"Take her out from among the troops! and whoever follows her, let him die by the sword!" For the Priest said, "Do not kill her in the House of the EVER-LIVING!"
RF CH2 23:15 So they laid their hand on her, and brought her to the entrance of the Horse Gate, of the Royal Palace, and killed her there.
RF CH2 23:16 Jehoiada afterwards wrote a treaty between himself, and the Representatives of the people, and the King, that they would be the people of the EVER-LIVING.
RF CH2 23:17 All the people afterwards went to the Temple of Bal and threw down his Altar, and shattered his Image, and killed Mathan the Priest of Bal before his Altar.
RF CH2 23:18 (878 B.C.) Jehoiada Re-organizes the Service of the Temple.
Jehoiada subsequently appointed Officers for the House of the EVER-LIVING, beside the Priests and Levites, whom David had arranged for the LORD'S Temple, to offer Presentations to the EVER-LIVING, as they are directed in the Laws of Moses, and to rejoice and sing as arranged by David.
RF CH2 23:19 And he appointed Doorkeepers at the Gates of the EVER-LIVING'S Temple, so that anything unclean might not enter.
RF CH2 23:20 (877 B.C.) A National Parliament Convoked.
After that he assembled the Military Officers, and the Nobles, and the Governors of the People, and the Representatives of the People of the country, and brought the King down from the House of the EVER-LIVING, and proceeded through the High date to the Royal Palace, and placed the King on the Throne of Government.
RF CH2 23:21 And all the Representatives of the People of the Country rejoiced that they had killed Athaliah with the sword.
