Devotional Readings, M'Cheyne Bible Reading Notes

2 Chronicles 25:25  And Amaziah the son of Joash king of Judah lived after the death of Joash son of Jehoahaz king of Israel fifteen years.

This could get confusing…..there are variations of spelling in the Hebrew.

2 Chronicles 25:25  And Amaziah the son of Joash king of Judah lived after the death of Joash son of Jehoahaz king of Israel fifteen years.

(Hebrew OT+)  ויחי H2421  אמציהו H558  בן H1121  יואשׁ H3101  מלך H4428  יהודה H3063  אחרי H310  מות H4191  יואשׁ H3101  בן H1121  יהואחז H3059  מלך H4428  ישׂראל H3478  חמשׁ H2568  עשׂרה H6240  שׁנה׃ H8141

There is some clarification of the earlier text…..two different Kings, different places, close to same time, and one has a variant spelling in Hebrew, so a slightly different word is used….AKA Dick and Richard.
