is proclaimed King and Athalia is slain.
II Kings 11:12-14,16
And he brought
forth the king's son, and put the crown upon him, and gave
him the testimony; and they made him king, and anointed him;
and they clapped their hands, and said, God save the king.
And when Athaliah heard the noise of the guard and of the
people, she came to the people into the temple of the Lord.
And when she looked, behold, the king stood by a pillar, as
the manner was, and the princes and the trumpeters by the
king, and all the people of the land rejoiced, and blew with
trumpets: and Athaliah rent her clothes, and cried, Treason,
Treason... ...And they laid hands on her; and she went by
the way by the which the horses came into the king's house:
and there was she slain. (KJV)
