JoashH3101 was sevenH7651 yearsH8141 oldH1121 when he began to reign,H4427 and he reignedH4427 fortyH705 yearsH8141 in Jerusalem.H3389 His mother'sH517 nameH8034 also was ZibiahH6645 of Beersheba.H884
And JoashH3101 didH6213 that which was rightH3477 in the sightH5869 of the LORDH3068 allH3605 the daysH3117 of JehoiadaH3111 the priest.H3548
And JehoiadaH3111 tookH5375 for him twoH8147 wives;H802 and he begatH3205 sonsH1121 and daughters.H1323
And it cameH1961 to pass afterH310 this,H3651 that JoashH3101 was mindedH5973 H3820 to repairH2318 the houseH1004 of the LORD.H3068
And he gatheredH6908 together the priestsH3548 and the Levites,H3881 and saidH559 to them, GoH3318 out to the citiesH5892 of Judah,H3063 and gatherH6908 of allH3605 IsraelH3478 moneyH3701 to repairH2388 the houseH1004 of your GodH430 from yearH8141 to year,H8141 and see that you hastenH4116 the matter.H1697 However, the LevitesH3881 hastenedH4116 it not.
And the kingH4428 calledH7121 for JehoiadaH3111 the chief,H7218 and saidH559 to him, WhyH4069 have you not requiredH1875 of the LevitesH3881 to bringH935 in out of JudahH3063 and out of JerusalemH3389 the collection,H4864 according to the commandment of MosesH4872 the servantH5650 of the LORD,H3068 and of the congregationH6951 of Israel,H3478 for the tabernacleH168 of witness?H5715
For the sonsH1121 of Athaliah,H6271 that wickedH4849 woman, had brokenH6555 up the houseH1004 of God;H430 and alsoH1571 allH3605 the dedicatedH6944 things of the houseH1004 of the LORDH3068 did they bestowH6213 on Baalim.H1168
And at the king'sH4428 commandmentH559 they madeH6213 a chest,H727 and setH5414 it withoutH2351 at the gateH8179 of the houseH1004 of the LORD.H3068
And they madeH5414 a proclamationH6963 through JudahH3063 and Jerusalem,H3389 to bringH935 in to the LORDH3068 the collectionH4864 that MosesH4872 the servantH5650 of GodH430 laid on IsraelH3478 in the wilderness.H4057
And allH3605 the princesH8269 and allH3605 the peopleH5971 rejoiced,H8055 and broughtH935 in, and castH7993 into the chest,H727 untilH5704 they had made an end.H3615
Now it cameH1961 to pass, that at what timeH6256 the chestH727 was broughtH935 to the king'sH4428 officeH6486 by the handH3027 of the Levites,H3881 and when they sawH7200 that there was muchH7227 money,H3701 the king'sH4428 scribeH5608 and the highH7218 priest'sH3548 officerH6496 cameH935 and emptiedH6168 the chest,H727 and tookH5375 it, and carriedH7725 it to his placeH4725 again.H7725 ThusH3541 they didH6213 dayH3117 by day,H3117 and gatheredH622 moneyH3701 in abundance.H7230
And the kingH4428 and JehoiadaH3111 gaveH5414 it to such as didH6213 the workH4399 of the serviceH5656 of the houseH1004 of the LORD,H3068 and hiredH7936 masonsH2672 and carpentersH2796 to repairH2318 the houseH1004 of the LORD,H3068 and alsoH1571 such as workedH2790 ironH1270 and brassH5178 to mendH2388 the houseH1004 of the LORD.H3068
So the workmenH6213 H4399 worked,H6213 and the workH4399 was perfectedH5927 H724 by them, and they setH5975 the houseH1004 of GodH430 in his state,H4971 and strengthenedH553 it.
And when they had finishedH3615 it, they broughtH935 the restH7605 of the moneyH3701 beforeH6440 the kingH4428 and Jehoiada,H3111 whereof were madeH6213 vesselsH3627 for the houseH1004 of the LORD,H3068 even vesselsH3627 to minister,H8335 and to offerH5927 with, and spoons,H3709 and vesselsH3627 of goldH2091 and silver.H3701 And they offeredH5927 burntH5930 offerings in the houseH1004 of the LORDH3068 continuallyH8548 allH3605 the daysH3117 of Jehoiada.H3111
But JehoiadaH3111 waxed old,H2204 and was fullH7646 of daysH3117 when he died;H4191 an hundredH3967 and thirtyH7970 yearsH8141 oldH1121 was he when he died.H4194
And they buriedH6912 him in the cityH5892 of DavidH1732 amongH5973 the kings,H4428 becauseH3588 he had doneH6213 goodH2896 in Israel,H3478 both towardH5973 God,H430 and toward his house.H1004
Now afterH310 the deathH4194 of JehoiadaH3111 cameH935 the princesH8269 of Judah,H3063 and made obeisanceH7812 to the king.H4428 Then the kingH4428 listenedH8085 to them.
And they leftH5800 the houseH1004 of the LORDH3068 GodH430 of their fathers,H1 and servedH5647 grovesH842 and idols:H6091 and wrathH7110 cameH1961 on JudahH3063 and JerusalemH3389 for thisH2063 their trespass.H819
Yet he sentH7971 prophetsH5030 to them, to bringH7725 them againH7725 to the LORD;H3068 and they testifiedH5749 against them: but they would not give ear.H238
And the SpiritH7307 of GodH430 cameH3847 on ZechariahH2148 the sonH1121 of JehoiadaH3111 the priest,H3548 which stoodH5975 aboveH5921 the people,H5971 and saidH559 to them, ThusH3541 saidH559 God,H430 WhyH4100 transgressH5674 you the commandmentsH4687 of the LORD,H3068 that you cannotH3808 prosper?H6743 becauseH3588 you have forsakenH5800 the LORD,H3068 he has also forsakenH5800 you.
And they conspiredH7194 againstH5921 him, and stonedH7275 him with stonesH68 at the commandmentH4687 of the kingH4428 in the courtH2691 of the houseH1004 of the LORD.H3068
Thus JoashH3101 the kingH4428 rememberedH2142 not the kindnessH2617 whichH834 JehoiadaH3111 his fatherH25 had doneH6213 to him, but slewH2026 his son.H1121 And when he died,H4191 he said,H559 The LORDH3068 lookH7200 on it, and requireH1875 it.
And it cameH1961 to pass at the endH8622 of the year,H8141 that the hostH2428 of SyriaH758 cameH5927 up againstH5921 him: and they cameH935 to JudahH3063 and Jerusalem,H3389 and destroyedH7843 allH3605 the princesH8269 of the peopleH5971 from among the people,H5971 and sentH7971 allH3605 the spoilH7998 of them to the kingH4428 of Damascus.H1834
For the armyH2428 of the SyriansH758 cameH935 with a smallH4705 companyH1995 of men,H582 and the LORDH3068 deliveredH5414 a veryH3966 greatH7230 hostH2428 into their hand,H3027 becauseH3588 they had forsakenH5800 the LORDH3068 GodH430 of their fathers.H1 So they executedH6213 judgmentH8201 against Joash.H3101
And when they were departedH3212 from him, (for they leftH5800 him in greatH7227 diseases,H4251) his own servantsH5650 conspiredH7194 againstH5921 him for the bloodH1818 of the sonsH1121 of JehoiadaH3111 the priest,H3548 and slewH2026 him onH5921 his bed,H4296 and he died:H4191 and they buriedH6912 him in the cityH5892 of David,H1732 but they buriedH6912 him not in the sepulchersH6913 of the kings.H4428
And theseH428 are they that conspiredH7194 againstH5921 him; ZabadH2066 the sonH1121 of ShimeathH8100 an Ammonitess,H5984 and JehozabadH3075 the sonH1121 of ShimrithH8116 a Moabitess.H4125
Now concerning his sons,H1121 and the greatnessH7230 of the burdensH4853 laid on him, and the repairingH3247 of the houseH1004 of God,H430 behold,H2009 they are writtenH3789 in the storyH4097 of the bookH5612 of the kings.H4428 And AmaziahH558 his sonH1121 reignedH4427 in his stead.H8478
