Joash of Israel defeated him at Bethshemesh; Amaziah was taken prisoner and his army dispersed.
And Jerubbaal the son of Joash went and dwelt in his own house.
Amid trumpet blasts and clashing of arms, the people clapped their hands, and cried "Long live King Joash."
Joash rushes into the arms of the high priest, exclaiming, "My father!"
They turn on Joash with the fierce demand, "Bring out thy son that he may die."
Joash probably stood to him in the same relation that Henry II.
And it is said, "Joash remembered not the kindness that Jehoiada his father had done to him, but slew his son."
Brother Joash expressed no opinion, good or ill, of the address.
And when they enquired and asked, they said, Gideon the son of Joash hath done this thing.
Like his father and his grandmother, Joash died by a violent death.
