    @ali omar: In the Bible many people have multiple names. In this case this new king was called Jehoahaz, Ahaziah and also Azariah.

    Jehoahaz mentioned in 2Chronicles 21:17 is the same person whom is called Ahaziah in 2Chronicles 22:1.

    He is also called Azariah in 2Chronicles 22:6.

    jehoahaz was the only son left,

    17 And they came up into Judah, and brake into it, and carried away all the substance that was found in the king's house, and his sons also, and his wives; so that there was never a son left him, save Jehoahaz, the youngest of his sons.

    but the next chapter it says ahaziah who became king???

    The word "fornication" means "idolatry", not "sex before marriage" like a lot of Christians believe. In the Old Testament, "sex" = "marriage"; and, that's why Jesus said, "An Adulterous and Perverse generation seek after a sign.."
