Melachim II (II Kings) – Chapter 8 26Ahaziah was twenty-two years old when he reigned, and one year he reigned in Jerusalem; and his mother’s name was Athaliah the daughter of Omri king of Israel.

Divrei Hayamim II (Chronicles II) – Chapter 22 2Ahaziah was forty-two years old when he began to reign, and he reigned one year in Jerusalem, and his mother’s name was Athaliah the daughter of Omri.

Was Ahaziah was 22 or 42 years old when he began to reign?


Huram sent him, under the charge of servants, a fleet with a crew of expert seamen; they went with Solomon’s men to Ophir, and obtained gold there in the amount of 450 talents, which they brought to King Solomon.

II Chronicles 8 : 18

They came to Ophir; there they obtained gold in the amount of four hundred and twenty talents, which they delivered to King Solomon.

I Kings 9 : 28

So is it 420 talents or 450 talents?


And the king said to Aravnah, “No; for I will only buy it from you at a price; so that I will not offer to the Lord my God burnt-offerings [which I had received] for nothing.” And David bought the threshing-floor and the oxen for fifty shekels of silver.

Shmuel II.24:24.

And David gave to Ornan for the place shekels of gold weighing six hundred.
