Amaziah beginneth to reign well. He executeth justice on the traitors. Having hired an army of Israelites against the Edomites, at the word of a prophet he loseth the hundred talents, and dismisseth them. He overthroweth the Edomites. The Israelites, discontented with their dismission, spoil as they return home. Amaziah, proud of his victory, serveth the gods of Edom, and despiseth the admonitions of the prophet. He provoketh Joash to his overthrow. His reign. He is slain by conspiracy.
