2 Chronicles 24

Joash
<03101>
[was] seven
<07651>
years
<08141>
old
<01121>
when he began to reign
<04427> (8800)_,
and he reigned
<04427> (8804)
forty
<0705>
years
<08141>
in Jerusalem
<03389>_.
His mother's
<0517>
name
<08034>
also [was] Zibiah
<06645>
of Beersheba
<0884>_.
And Joash
<03101>
did
<06213> (8799)
[that which was] right
<03477>
in the sight
<05869>
of the LORD
<03068>
all the days
<03117>
of Jehoiada
<03077>
the priest
<03548>_.
And Jehoiada
<03077>
took
<05375> (8799)
for him two
<08147>
wives
<0802>_;
and he begat
<03205> (8686)
sons
<01121>
and daughters
<01323>_.
And it came to pass after
<0310>
this, [that] Joash
<03101>
was minded
<03820>
to repair
<02318> (8763)
the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_.
{to repair: Heb. to renew}
And he gathered together
<06908> (8799)
the priests
<03548>
and the Levites
<03881>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)
to them, Go out
<03318> (8798)
unto the cities
<05892>
of Judah
<03063>_,
and gather
<06908> (8798)
of all Israel
<03478>
money
<03701>
to repair
<02388> (8763)
the house
<01004>
of your God
<0430>
from
<01767>
year
<08141>
to year
<08141>_,
and see that ye hasten
<04116> (8762)
the matter
<01697>_.
Howbeit the Levites
<03881>
hastened
<04116> (8765)
[it] not.
And the king
<04428>
called
<07121> (8799)
for Jehoiada
<03077>
the chief
<07218>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Why hast thou not required
<01875> (8804)
of the Levites
<03881>
to bring in
<0935> (8687)
out of Judah
<03063>
and out of Jerusalem
<03389>
the collection
<04864>_,
[according to the commandment] of Moses
<04872>
the servant
<05650>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
and of the congregation
<06951>
of Israel
<03478>_,
for the tabernacle
<0168>
of witness
<05715>_?
For the sons
<01121>
of Athaliah
<06271>_,
that wicked
<04849>
woman, had broken up
<06555> (8804)
the house
<01004>
of God
<0430>_;
and also all the dedicated things
<06944>
of the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>
did they bestow
<06213> (8804)
upon Baalim
<01168>_.
And at the king's
<04428>
commandment
<0559> (8799)
they made
<06213> (8799)
a
<0259>
chest
<0727>_,
and set
<05414> (8799)
it without
<02351>
at the gate
<08179>
of the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_.
And they made
<05414> (8799)
a proclamation
<06963>
through Judah
<03063>
and Jerusalem
<03389>_,
to bring in
<0935> (8687)
to the LORD
<03068>
the collection
<04864>
[that] Moses
<04872>
the servant
<05650>
of God
<0430>
[laid] upon Israel
<03478>
in the wilderness
<04057>_.
{a proclamation: Heb. a voice}
And all the princes
<08269>
and all the people
<05971>
rejoiced
<08055> (8799)_,
and brought in
<0935> (8686)_,
and cast
<07993> (8686)
into the chest
<0727>_,
until they had made an end
<03615> (8763)_.
Now it came to pass, that at what time
<06256>
the chest
<0727>
was brought
<0935> (8686)
unto the king's
<04428>
office
<06486>
by the hand
<03027>
of the Levites
<03881>_,
and when they saw
<07200> (8800)
that [there was] much
<07227>
money
<03701>_,
the king's
<04428>
scribe
<05608> (8802)
and the high
<07218>
priest's
<03548>
officer
<06496>
came
<0935> (8804)
and emptied
<06168> (8762)
the chest
<0727>_,
and took
<05375> (8799)
it, and carried
<07725> (0)
it to his place
<04725>
again
<07725> (8686)_.
Thus they did
<06213> (8804)
day
<03117>
by day
<03117>_,
and gathered
<0622> (8799)
money
<03701>
in abundance
<07230>_.
And the king
<04428>
and Jehoiada
<03077>
gave
<05414> (8799)
it to such as did
<06213> (8802)
the work
<04399>
of the service
<05656>
of the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
and hired
<07936> (8802)
masons
<02672> (8802)
and carpenters
<02796>
to repair
<02318> (8763)
the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
and also such as wrought
<02796>
iron
<01270>
and brass
<05178>
to mend
<02388> (8763)
the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_.
So the workmen
<04399> <06213> (8802)
wrought
<06213> (8799)_,
and the work
<04399>
was
<05927> (8799)
perfected
<0724>
by them
<03027>_,
and they set
<05975> (8686)
the house
<01004>
of God
<0430>
in his state
<04971>_,
and strengthened
<0553> (8762)
it. {the work...: Heb. the healing went up upon the work}
And when they had finished
<03615> (8763)
[it], they brought
<0935> (8689)
the rest
<07605>
of the money
<03701>
before
<06440>
the king
<04428>
and Jehoiada
<03077>_,
whereof were made
<06213> (8799)
vessels
<03627>
for the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
[even] vessels
<03627>
to minister
<08335>_,
and to offer
<05927> (8687)
[withal], and spoons
<03709>_,
and vessels
<03627>
of gold
<02091>
and silver
<03701>_.
And they offered
<05927> (8688)
burnt offerings
<05930>
in the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>
continually
<08548>
all the days
<03117>
of Jehoiada
<03077>_.
{to offer...: or, pestils}
But Jehoiada
<03077>
waxed old
<02204> (8799)_,
and was full
<07646> (8799)
of days
<03117>
when he died
<04191> (8799)_;
an hundred
<03967>
and thirty
<07970>
years
<08141>
old
<01121>
[was he] when he died
<04194>_.
And they buried
<06912> (8799)
him in the city
<05892>
of David
<01732>
among the kings
<04428>_,
because he had done
<06213> (8804)
good
<02896>
in Israel
<03478>_,
both toward God
<0430>_,
and toward his house
<01004>_.
Now after
<0310>
the death
<04194>
of Jehoiada
<03077>
came
<0935> (8804)
the princes
<08269>
of Judah
<03063>_,
and made obeisance
<07812> (8691)
to the king
<04428>_.
Then the king
<04428>
hearkened
<08085> (8804)
unto them.
And they left
<05800> (8799)
the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>
of their fathers
<01>_,
and served
<05647> (8799)
groves
<0842>
and idols
<06091>_:
and wrath
<07110>
came upon Judah
<03063>
and Jerusalem
<03389>
for this their trespass
<0819>_.
Yet he sent
<07971> (8799)
prophets
<05030>
to them, to bring them again
<07725> (8687)
unto the LORD
<03068>_;
and they testified
<05749> (8686)
against them: but they would not give ear
<0238> (8689)_.
And the Spirit
<07307>
of God
<0430>
came
<03847> (8804)
upon Zechariah
<02148>
the son
<01121>
of Jehoiada
<03077>
the priest
<03548>_,
which stood
<05975> (8799)
above the people
<05971>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)
unto them, Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
God
<0430>_,
Why transgress
<05674> (8802)
ye the commandments
<04687>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
that ye cannot prosper
<06743> (8686)_?
because ye have forsaken
<05800> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_,
he hath also forsaken
<05800> (8799)
you. {came...: Heb. clothed}
And they conspired
<07194> (8799)
against him, and stoned
<07275> (8799)
him with stones
<068>
at the commandment
<04687>
of the king
<04428>
in the court
<02691>
of the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_.
Thus Joash
<03101>
the king
<04428>
remembered
<02142> (8804)
not the kindness
<02617>
which Jehoiada
<03077>
his father
<01>
had done
<06213> (8804)
to him, but slew
<02026> (8799)
his son
<01121>_.
And when he died
<04194>_,
he said
<0559> (8804)_,
The LORD
<03068>
look
<07200> (8799)
upon [it], and require
<01875> (8799)
[it].
And it came to pass at the end
<08622>
of the year
<08141>_,
[that] the host
<02428>
of Syria
<0758>
came up
<05927> (8804)
against him: and they came
<0935> (8799)
to Judah
<03063>
and Jerusalem
<03389>_,
and destroyed
<07843> (8686)
all the princes
<08269>
of the people
<05971>
from among the people
<05971>_,
and sent
<07971> (8765)
all the spoil
<07998>
of them unto the king
<04428>
of Damascus
<01834>_.
{at the...: Heb. in the revolution of the year} {Damascus: Heb. Darmesek}
For the army
<02428>
of the Syrians
<0758>
came
<0935> (8804)
with a small
<04705>
company of men
<0582>_,
and the LORD
<03068>
delivered
<05414> (8804)
a very
<03966>
great
<07230>
host
<02428>
into their hand
<03027>_,
because they had forsaken
<05800> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>
of their fathers
<01>_.
So they executed
<06213> (8804)
judgment
<08201>
against Joash
<03101>_.
And when they were departed
<03212> (8800)
from him, (for they left
<05800> (8804)
him in great
<07227>
diseases
<04251>,)
his own servants
<05650>
conspired
<07194> (8694)
against him for the blood
<01818>
of the sons
<01121>
of Jehoiada
<03077>
the priest
<03548>_,
and slew
<02026> (8799)
him on his bed
<04296>_,
and he died
<04191> (8799)_:
and they buried
<06912> (8799)
him in the city
<05892>
of David
<01732>_,
but they buried
<06912> (8804)
him not in the sepulchres
<06913>
of the kings
<04428>_.
And these are they that conspired
<07194> (8693)
against him; Zabad
<02066>
the son
<01121>
of Shimeath
<08100>
an Ammonitess
<05985>_,
and Jehozabad
<03075>
the son
<01121>
of Shimrith
<08116>
a Moabitess
<04125>_.
{Zabad: or, Jozacher} {Shimrith: or, Shomer}
Now [concerning] his sons
<01121>_,
and the greatness
<07235> (8799) (8675) <07230>
of the burdens
<04853>
[laid] upon him, and the repairing
<03247>
of the house
<01004>
of God
<0430>_,
behold, they [are] written
<03789> (8803)
in the story
<04097>
of the book
<05612>
of the kings
<04428>_.
And Amaziah
<0558>
his son
<01121>
reigned
<04427> (8799)
in his stead. {repairing: Heb. founding} {story: or, commentary}
