2 Chronicles 24:22-24

Context
24:22 King Joash disregarded 1  the loyalty his father Jehoiada had shown him and killed Jehoiada’s 2  son. As Zechariah 3  was dying, he said, “May the Lord take notice and seek vengeance!” 4 

24:23 At the beginning 5  of the year the Syrian army attacked 6  Joash 7  and invaded Judah and Jerusalem. They wiped out all the leaders of the people and sent all the plunder they gathered to the king of Damascus. 24:24 Even though the invading Syrian army was relatively weak, the Lord handed over to them Judah’s very large army, 8  for the people of Judah 9  had abandoned the Lord God of their ancestors. The Syrians 10  gave Joash what he deserved. 11
