Ahaziah, who was guilty of continuing both the Canaanite fertility religion of Ahab and the idolatrous calf worship of Jeroboam I, feared that an injury he received in a fall might be fatal (2 Kings 1) and thus sent messengers to Philistia to ask Baal-Zebub about his health—resulting in God's interception of the messengers and Elijah's warning.

Book of the Law
During the reign of young king Josiah, this term probably referred to all or part of Deuteronomy, which had been deposited in the temple at Solomon's dedication (1 Kings 8:1-4; Deut. 31:26).

Hebrew word that literally means "teaching" or "instruction," though sometimes also translated "law." The term refers to the first five books of the Old Testament—Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy.
