Jehoahaz was 23 years old when he began to reign, and he reigned three months in Jerusalem; and his mother’s name was Hamutal the daughter of Jeremiah of Libnah. Bible other translations

“Jehoahaz.” Jehoahaz is also known as Shallum (1 Chron. 3:15; Jer. 22:11).

“Hamutal the daughter of Jeremiah.” This is not Jeremiah the prophet, but someone else named Jeremiah. Hamutal is the mother of two of Josiah’s sons: Jehoahaz and Zedekiah, who was the last king of Judah to reign in Jerusalem.
