12:17 At that time King Hazael of Syria attacked 1 Gath and captured it. Hazael then decided to attack Jerusalem. 2 12:18 King Jehoash of Judah collected all the sacred items that his ancestors Jehoshaphat, Jehoram, and Ahaziah, kings of Judah, had consecrated, as well as his own sacred items and all the gold that could be found in the treasuries of the Lord’s temple and the royal palace. He sent it all 3 to King Hazael of Syria, who then withdrew 4 from Jerusalem.
12:19 The rest of the events of Joash’s reign, including all his accomplishments, are recorded in the scroll called the Annals of the Kings of Judah. 5 12:20 His servants conspired against him 6 and murdered Joash at Beth-Millo, on the road that goes down to Silla. 7 12:21 His servants Jozabad son of Shimeath and Jehozabad son of Shomer murdered him. 8 He was buried 9 with his ancestors in the city of David. His son Amaziah replaced him as king.
