RF CH2 24:1 (878 B.C.) Jhoash Begins to Reign.
Jhoash was seven years old at his coronation, and reigned forty years in Jerusalem. His mother's name was Zebiah of Bar-Sheba.
RF CH2 24:2 And Jhoash did right in the eyes of the EVER-LIVING, all the days of Jehoiada the Priest.
RF CH2 24:3 Jehoiada chose two wives for him, and he begot sons and daughters.
RF CH2 24:4 It ultimately came into the mind of Jhoash to repair the Temple of the EVER-LIVING,
RF CH2 24:5 So he assembled the Priests, and Levites, and said to them, "Go out to the towns of Judea and collect money from all Israel, to restore the House of your GOD, from year to year, and be energetic in the matter." But the Levites were not energetic.
RF CH2 24:6 The King consequently summoned Jehoiada their Chief, and asked him, "Why have you not ordered the Levites to bring in from Judea and Jerusalem the Tax of Moses the Minister of the EVER-LIVING, and of the Parliament of Israel, for the Hall of Witnesses?
RF CH2 24:7 Although the infamous Athaliah and her sons dilapidated the House of GOD, and also used the sacred thing of the LORD'S Temple for their Baals!"
RF CH2 24:8 A Collection Box Ordered for the Temple.
The King then ordered, and they made a chest, and placed it at the outer-gate of the Temple of the EVER-LIVING.
RF CH2 24:9 He also made a proclamation to Judea and Jerusalem to bring to the EVER-LIVING the Taxes which Moses, the Servant of the LORD laid upon Israel in the Desert.—
RF CH2 24:10 This pleased all the Nobles and People, and they brought them, and poured into the chest until it was full;
RF CH2 24:11 and when the chest was brought to the King's accountants by the Levites, and they saw that there was much money, the clerks of the King came with an Officer of the High Priest, and emptied the chest, then returned it to its place again. They did this from time to time, and collected a quantity of money,
RF CH2 24:12 which the King and Jehoiada gave to carry out the works about the House of the EVER-LIVING, and to pay the wages of the masons and carpenters who repaired the Temple of the EVER-LIVING.
RF CH2 24:13 And the workmen did the work, and it proceeded regularly under their hands. They thus built up the House of GOD in its proportions and restored it.
RF CH2 24:14 When they had completed it, they brought the rest of the money to the King and Jehoiada the Priest, who made vessels for the House of the EVER-LIVING; vessels for the Services, and Offerings, and Cups; and furniture of Gold and Silver, which were for use in the Offerings at the EVER-LIVING'S Temple continually all the time of Jehoiada.
RF CH2 24:15 (850 B.C.) But Jehoiada grew old, and satiated with days, and died,—a hundred and thirty years old at his death.
RF CH2 24:16 And they buried him in the City of David, with the Kings,—because he had benefited Israel, both towards GOD and His House.
RF CH2 24:17 The Nobles persuade the King to restore Idolatry.
But after the death of Jehoiada, the Nobles of Judea came and flattered the King, and the King listened to them,
RF CH2 24:18 and they forsook the House of the EVER-LIVING GOD of their fathers, and served the Idols of Lust, and other Idols; so anger came upon Judea and Jerusalem, because of their sins.
RF CH2 24:19 However he sent Preachers to turn them back to the EVER-LIVING and to warn them, but they would not listen.
RF CH2 24:20 Zechariah's Warning against Idolatry, and his Murder by the King and Mob of Courtiers.
Consequently, the Spirit of GOD clothed itself in Zechariah,-ben-Jhoiada the Priest, and he stood up before the Parliament and said to them;—"GOD asks this! Why do you transgress the Instructions of the EVER-LIVING? You do not prosper!—Because you have abandoned the LORD,—He will abandon you!"
RF CH2 24:21 They however conspired against him, and murdered him by stoning, by command of the King, in the Court of the House of the EVER-LIVING!—
RF CH2 24:22 for Jhoash the King did not remember the kindness that Jhoiada his father had shown to him, but murdered his son, who as he died exclaimed, "The EVER-LIVING sees, and will enquire for it!"
RF CH2 24:23 (840 B.C.) And indeed on the revolution of a year, the Army of Aram came up against him, and entered Judea and Jerusalem, and ruined the great Nobles of the People, with the Parliament, and sent all the booty to the King of Damask,
RF CH2 24:24 although the Aramite army came with a small number of men, yet, the EVER-LIVING gave a very large force into its power, because they had abandoned their EVER-LIVING GOD.—Thus Justice was executed upon Jhoash.
RF CH2 24:25 And when they retired, leaving him in many troubles, his Ministers conspired against him, on account of the blood of the son of Jehoiada the Priest, and murdered him on his bed. Thus he died, and they buried him in the City of David; but he was not buried in the Tombs of the Kings.
RF CH2 24:26 The following were the conspirators against him Zabad,-ben-Shimath, the Amonite; and Jozabad,-ben-Shimerith, the Moabite.
RF CH2 24:27 But about his sons, and the great load upon him, and his repairing of the House of GOD, can be seen related in the record books of the Kings.
