|NASB||2 Chronicles 36:2 Joahaz was twenty-three years old when he became king, and he reigned three months in Jerusalem.|
|2 Chronicles 36:2 Joahaz was twenty-three years old when he became king, and he reigned [only] three months in Jerusalem.|
|Bible Question: In 2Chronicles 36 it talks of Neco of Egypt having killed Josiah and now after dealing with Assyria comes back to Jerusalem and deposes Josiah's son, puts his (Jehoahaz's) in his place and then taking Jehoahaz home to Egypt, and later, Nebuchadnezzar comes from Babylon and takes Jehoiakim back to Babylon. I am wondering why and how do these men have any authority to do these things over the wishes of the people of Judah for their rightful king?|
Bible Answer: Scripture ... 2Ki 23:29-23:35, 2Ch 35:20-36:4 ...
God's day to you, smalltinygirl,
Neco he had the authority,
-he deposed Joahaz(vs 2)
-he levied a fine (v 2)
-he made Eliakim his brother king over Judah and Jerusalem (v 4)
-he changed his name to Jehoiakim ... only one in authority can name a person (like a parent) or rename.
