Then they brought out the king's son, and put upon him the crown and the insignia, and made him king; and Jehoiada and his sons anointed him; and they said: 'Long live the king.'
And when Athaliah heard the noise of the people running and praising the king, she came to the people into the house of HaShem;
and she looked, and, behold, the king stood on his platform at the entrance, and the captains and the trumpets by the king; and all the people of the land rejoiced, and blew with trumpets; the singers also played on instruments of music, and led the singing of praise. Then Athaliah rent her clothes, and said: 'Treason, treason.'
And Jehoiada the priest brought out the captains of hundreds that were set over the host, and said unto them: 'Have her forth between the ranks; and whoso followeth her, let him be slain with the sword'; for the priest said: 'Slay her not in the house of HaShem.'
So they made way for her; and she went to the entry of the horse gate to the king's house; and they slew her there.
And Jehoiada made a covenant between himself, and all the people, and the king, that they should be HaShem'S people.
And all the people went to the house of Baal, and broke it down, and broke his altars and his images in pieces, and slew Mattan the priest of Baal before the altars.
And Jehoiada appointed the offices of the house of HaShem under the hand of the priests the Levites, whom David had distributed in the house of HaShem, to offer the burnt-offerings of HaShem, as it is written in the Law of Moses, with rejoicing and with singing, according to the direction of David.
And he set the porters at the gates of the house of HaShem, that none that was unclean in any thing should enter in.
And he took the captains of hundreds, and the nobles, and the governors of the people, and all the people of the land, and brought down the king from the house of HaShem; and they came through the upper gate unto the king's house, and set the king upon the throne of the kingdom.
So all the people of the land rejoiced, and the city was quiet; and they slew Athaliah with the sword.
