Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Daughter of - Joram, sister of Ahaziah - It is not likely that Jehosheba was the daughter of Athaliah; she was sister, we find, to Ahaziah the son of Athaliah, but probably by a different mother. The mother of Jehoash was Zibiah of Beer-sheba; see 2 Kings 12:1.

So far from suffering under social inferiority, she takes influential and often leading part in all movements, specially
