AmaziahAmaziah - "In the second year of Joash son of Joahaz king of Israel, Amaziah the son of Joash king of Judah became king.  He was twenty-five years old when he became king, and he reigned twenty-nine years in Jerusalem.  And his mother's name was Jehoaddin of Jerusalem.  He did right in the sight of the Lord, yet not like David his father; he did according to all that Joash his father had done.  Only the high places were not taken away; the people still sacrificed and burned incense on the high places.  Now it came about, as soon as the kingdom was firmly in his hand, that he killed his servants who had slain the king his father.  But the sons of the slayers he did not put to death, according to what was written in the book of the Law of Moses, as the Lord commanded, saying, 'The fathers shall not be put to death for the sons, nor the sons be put to death for the fathers; but each shall be put to death for his own sin.'  He killed of Edom in the Valley of Salt 10,000 and took Sela by war, and named it Joktheel to this day." (II Kings 14:1-7, NASB)
