Who is Jehosheba?
(her oath is Jehovah), the wife of Jehoiada, the high priest, daughter of King Jehoram, but, it has been conjectured, not by Athaliah; if so, half-sister to Ahaziah. 2 Kgs 11:2-3; 2 Chr 22:11. When Athaliah attempted the entire destruction of the seed royal Jehosheba saved her infant nephew, Joash, and for six years, doubtless with the connivance of Jehoiada, he was hid in the temple.
