Revolt against Athaliah

4In the seventh year of Athaliah's reign, Jehoiada the priest summoned the commanders, the Carite mercenaries, and the palace guards to come to the Temple of the LORD. He made a solemn pact with them and made them swear an oath of loyalty there in the LORD's Temple; then he showed them the king's son.H7637H8141H3077H7971H3947H8269H3967H3746H7323H935H1004H3068H3772H1285H7650H1004H3068H7200H4428H1121 5Jehoiada told them, "This is what you must do. A third of you who are on duty on the Sabbath are to guard the royal palace itself.H6680H559H1697H6213H7992H935H7676H8104H4931H4428H1004 6Another third of you are to stand guard at the Sur Gate. And the final third must stand guard behind the palace guard. These three groups will all guard the palace.H7992H8179H5495H7992H8179H310H7323H8104H4931H1004H4535 7The other two units who are off duty on the Sabbath must stand guard for the king at the LORD's Temple.H8147H3027H3318H7676H8104H4931H1004H3068H413H4428 8Form a bodyguard around the king and keep your weapons in hand. Kill anyone who tries to break through. Stay with the king wherever he goes."H5362H4428H5439H376H3627H3027H935H7713H4191H4428H3318H935 9So the commanders did everything as Jehoiada the priest ordered. The commanders took charge of the men reporting for duty that Sabbath, as well as those who were going off duty. They brought them all to Jehoiada the priest,H8269H3967H6213H3077H3548H6680H3947H376H582H935H7676H3318H7676H935H3077H3548 10and he supplied them with the spears and small shields that had once belonged to King David and were stored in the Temple of the LORD.H8269H3967H3548H5414H4428H1732H2595H7982H1004H3068 11The palace guards stationed themselves around the king, with their weapons ready. They formed a line from the south side of the Temple around to the north side and all around the altar.H7323H5975H376H3627H3027H5439H4428H3233H3802H1004H8042H3802H1004H4196H1004 12Then Jehoiada brought out Joash, the king's son, placed the crown on his head, and presented him with a copy of God's laws. They anointed him and proclaimed him king, and everyone clapped their hands and shouted, "Long live the king!"H3318H4428H1121H5414H5145H5715H4427H4886H5221H3709H559H2421H4428
