In context, with the mention of Ahazyahu, who is attributed to the
Davidic dynasty by Kings, and with the biblical use of beit David to
mean the dynasty of David or the regnant Davidic king,what else can
bytdwd mean? Are you assuming that he is king of some GN called bytdwd?
Isn't this somewhat strained?
