2 Kings 1:17 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

17 Ahaziah died according to the word of the Lord spoken by Elijah. Since he had no son, Joram[a] succeeded him as king, in the second year of Joram, son of Jehoshaphat, king of Judah.


  1. 1:17 Joram: in 2 Kings the name “Joram” (yoram) and its variant “Jehoram” (yehoram) are used interchangeably. To avoid the impression that they are different names and designate different people, both forms are rendered “Joram” in this translation. Confusion arises, however, because the king of Israel whose reign is recounted beginning in 3:1 and the contemporary king of Judah whose reign is recounted beginning in 8:16 share this name. On the relationship of Joram of Israel to Joram of Judah, see note on 3:1.
