Second Kings 8:25-26

This website has been moved to: https://debatemap.live

2 Kings 8:25-26: In the twelfth year of Joram the son of Ahab, king of Israel, Ahaziah the son of Jehoram, king of Judah, began to reign. Ahaziah was twenty-two years old when he became king, and he reigned one year in Jerusalem. His mother’s name was Athaliah the granddaughter of Omri, king of Israel.

2 Chronicles 22:2: Ahaziah was forty-two years old when he became king, and he reigned one year in Jerusalem. His mother’s name was Athaliah the granddaughter of Omri.

Second Kings says that Ahaziah was 22 when he became king, Second Chronicles says that Ahaziah was 42 when he became king.

This is most likely just the result of scribal copying errors.
