2 Chronicles 24:2

24:2 Joash did what the Lord approved 1  throughout the lifetime 2  of Jehoiada the priest.

2 Chronicles 24:14-22

24:14 When they were finished, they brought the rest of the silver to the king and Jehoiada. They used it to make items for the Lord’s temple, including items used in the temple service and for burnt sacrifices, pans, and various other gold and silver items. Throughout Jehoiada’s lifetime, burnt sacrifices were offered regularly in the Lord’s temple.

24:15 Jehoiada grew old and died at the age of 130. 3  24:16 He was buried in the City of David 4  with the kings, because he had accomplished good in Israel and for God and his temple.

24:17 After Jehoiada died, the officials of Judah visited the king and declared their loyalty to him. 5  The king listened to their advice. 6  24:18 They abandoned the temple of the Lord God of their ancestors, 7  and worshiped 8  the Asherah poles and idols. Because of this sinful activity, God was angry with Judah and Jerusalem. 24:19 The Lord sent prophets among them to lead them back to him. 9  They warned 10  the people, but they would not pay attention. 24:20 God’s Spirit energized 11  Zechariah son of Jehoiada the priest. He stood up before the people and said to them, “This is what God says: ‘Why are you violating the commands of the Lord? You will not be prosperous! Because you have rejected the Lord, he has rejected you!’” 24:21 They plotted against him and by royal decree stoned him to death in the courtyard of the Lord’s temple. 24:22 King Joash disregarded 12  the loyalty his father Jehoiada had shown him and killed Jehoiada’s 13  son. As Zechariah 14  was dying, he said, “May the Lord take notice and seek vengeance!” 15
