2 Chronicles 24:20-22

Context
24:20 God’s Spirit energized 1  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 2  the loyalty his father Jehoiada had shown him and killed Jehoiada’s 3  son. As Zechariah 4  was dying, he said, “May the Lord take notice and seek vengeance!” 5
