Ahaziah does not do what gives pleasure to God
3 Ahaziah's mother taught him to do what was wrong. So he did the things that Ahab and his descendants had done. 4 He did very wrong things that the Lord did not like. They were like the things that Ahab and his descendants had done. Ahab's officers had taught Ahaziah to do those wrong things after his father had died. And those things caused his death. 5 Ahab's officers told him that he should go with Jehoram to fight Hazael, king of Syria at Ramoth-Gilead. Jehoram was the son of Ahab and he was the king of Israel. He did as they said and the soldiers from Syria hurt Jehoram. 6 So he went to Jezreel to get better after what had happened at Ramah. While he was fighting against Hazael, the king of Syria there, Hazael's soldiers had hurt him. Then Jehoram's son Ahaziah, the king of Judah went to Jezreel to see Ahab's son Jehoram because he was ill.
