2 Chronicles 24

  1 H3101 Joash H7651 was seven H8141 years H1121 old H4427 [H8800] when he began to reign H4427 [H8804] , and he reigned H705 forty H8141 years H3389 in Jerusalem H517 . His mother's H8034 name H6645 also was Zibiah H884 of Beersheba.
  2 H3101 And Joash H6213 [H8799] did H3477 that which was right H5869 in the sight H3068 of the LORD H3117 all the days H3077 of Jehoiada H3548 the priest.
  3 H3077 And Jehoiada H5375 [H8799] took H8147 for him two H802 wives H3205 [H8686] ; and he begat H1121 sons H1323 and daughters.
  4 H310 And it came to pass after H3101 this, that Joash H3820 was minded H2318 [H8763] to repair H1004 the house H3068 of the LORD.
  5 H6908 [H8799] And he gathered H3548 the priests H3881 and the Levites H559 [H8799] , and said H3318 [H8798] to them, Go out H5892 to the cities H3063 of Judah H6908 [H8798] , and gather H3478 from all Israel H3701 money H2388 [H8763] to repair H1004 the house H430 of your God H1767 from H8141 year H8141 to year H4116 [H8762] , and see that ye hasten H1697 the matter H3881 . But the Levites H4116 [H8765] hastened it not.
  6 H4428 And the king H7121 [H8799] called H3077 for Jehoiada H7218 the chief H559 [H8799] , and said H1875 [H8804] to him, Why hast thou not required H3881 of the Levites H935 [H8687] to bring in H3063 out of Judah H3389 and out of Jerusalem H4864 the collection H4872 , according to the commandment of Moses H5650 the servant H3068 of the LORD H6951 , and of the congregation H3478 of Israel H168 , for the tabernacle H5715 of witness?
  7 H1121 For the sons H6271 of Athaliah H4849 , that wicked H6555 [H8804] woman, had broken up H1004 the house H430 of God H6944 ; and also all the dedicated things H1004 of the house H3068 of the LORD H6213 [H8804] they bestowed H1168 upon Baalim.
  8 H4428 And at the king's H559 [H8799] commandment H6213 [H8799] they made H259 a H727 chest H5414 [H8799] , and set H2351 it without H8179 at the gate H1004 of the house H3068 of the LORD.
  9 H5414 [H8799] And they made H6963 a proclamation H3063 through Judah H3389 and Jerusalem H935 [H8687] , to bring in H3068 to the LORD H4864 the collection H4872 that Moses H5650 the servant H430 of God H3478 laid upon Israel H4057 in the wilderness.
  10 H8269 And all the princes H5971 and all the people H8055 [H8799] rejoiced H935 [H8686] , and brought in H7993 [H8686] , and cast H727 into the chest H3615 [H8763] , until they had finished.
  11 H6256 Now it came to pass, that at the time H727 the chest H935 [H8686] was brought H4428 to the king's H6486 office H3027 by the hand H3881 of the Levites H7200 [H8800] , and when they saw H7227 that there was much H3701 money H4428 , the king's H5608 [H8802] scribe H7218 and the high H3548 priest's H6496 officer H935 [H8804] came H6168 [H8762] and emptied H727 the chest H5375 [H8799] , and took H7725 0 it, and carried H4725 it to its place H7725 [H8686] again H6213 [H8804] . Thus they did H3117 day H3117 by day H622 [H8799] , and assembled H3701 money H7230 in abundance.
  12 H4428 And the king H3077 and Jehoiada H5414 [H8799] gave H6213 [H8802] it to such as did H4399 the work H5656 of the service H1004 of the house H3068 of the LORD H7936 [H8802] , and hired H2672 [H8802] masons H2796 and carpenters H2318 [H8763] to repair H1004 the house H3068 of the LORD H2796 , and also such as wrought H1270 iron H5178 and brass H2388 [H8763] to mend H1004 the house H3068 of the LORD.
  13 H4399 H6213 [H8802] So the workmen H6213 [H8799] wrought H4399 , and the work H5927 [H8799] was H724 perfected H3027 by them H5975 [H8686] , and they set H1004 the house H430 of God H4971 in order H553 [H8762] , and strengthened it.
  14 H3615 [H8763] And when they had finished H935 [H8689] it, they brought H7605 the rest H3701 of the money H6440 before H4428 the king H3077 and Jehoiada H6213 [H8799] , of which were made H3627 vessels H1004 for the house H3068 of the LORD H3627 , even vessels H8335 to minister H5927 [H8687] , and to offer H3709 with, and spoons H3627 , and vessels H2091 of gold H3701 and silver H5927 [H8688] . And they offered H5930 burnt offerings H1004 in the house H3068 of the LORD H8548 continually H3117 all the days H3077 of Jehoiada.
  15 H3077 But Jehoiada H2204 [H8799] grew old H7646 [H8799] , and was full H3117 of days H4191 [H8799] when he died H3967 ; an hundred H7970 and thirty H8141 years H1121 old H4194 was he when he died.
  16 H6912 [H8799] And they buried H5892 him in the city H1732 of David H4428 among the kings H6213 [H8804] , because he had done H2896 good H3478 in Israel H430 , both toward God H1004 , and toward his house.
  17 H310 Now after H4194 the death H3077 of Jehoiada H935 [H8804] came H8269 the princes H3063 of Judah H7812 [H8691] , and made obeisance H4428 to the king H4428 . Then the king H8085 [H8804] hearkened to them.
  18 H5800 [H8799] And they left H1004 the house H3068 of the LORD H430 God H1 of their fathers H5647 [H8799] , and served H842 groves H6091 and idols H7110 : and wrath H3063 came upon Judah H3389 and Jerusalem H819 for this their trespass.
  19 H7971 [H8799] Yet he sent H5030 prophets H7725 [H8687] to them, to bring them again H3068 to the LORD H5749 [H8686] ; and they testified H238 [H8689] against them: but they would not give ear.
  20 H7307 And the Spirit H430 of God H3847 [H8804] came H2148 upon Zechariah H1121 the son H3077 of Jehoiada H3548 the priest H5975 [H8799] , who stood H5971 above the people H559 [H8799] , and said H559 [H8804] to them, Thus saith H430 God H5674 [H8802] , Why transgress H4687 ye the commandments H3068 of the LORD H6743 [H8686] , that ye cannot prosper H5800 [H8804] ? because ye have forsaken H3068 the LORD H5800 [H8799] , he hath also forsaken you.
  21 H7194 [H8799] And they conspired H7275 [H8799] against him, and stoned H68 him with stones H4687 at the commandment H4428 of the king H2691 in the court H1004 of the house H3068 of the LORD.
  22 H3101 Thus Joash H4428 the king H2142 [H8804] remembered H2617 not the kindness H3077 which Jehoiada H1 his father H6213 [H8804] had done H2026 [H8799] to him, but slew H1121 his son H4194 . And when he died H559 [H8804] , he said H3068 , The LORD H7200 [H8799] look H1875 [H8799] upon it, and require it.
  23 H8622 And it came to pass at the end H8141 of the year H2428 , that the army H758 of Syria H5927 [H8804] came up H935 [H8799] against him: and they came H3063 to Judah H3389 and Jerusalem H7843 [H8686] , and destroyed H8269 all the princes H5971 of the people H5971 from among the people H7971 [H8765] , and sent H7998 all the spoil H4428 of them to the king H1834 of Damascus.
  24 H2428 For the army H758 of the Syrians H935 [H8804] came H4705 with a small H582 company of men H3068 , and the LORD H5414 [H8804] delivered H3966 a very H7230 great H2428 host H3027 into their hand H5800 [H8804] , because they had forsaken H3068 the LORD H430 God H1 of their fathers H6213 [H8804] . So they executed H8201 judgment H3101 against Joash.
  25 H3212 [H8800] And when they had departed H5800 [H8804] from him, (for they left H7227 him in great H4251 diseases H5650 ,) his own servants H7194 [H8694] conspired H1818 against him for the blood H1121 of the sons H3077 of Jehoiada H3548 the priest H2026 [H8799] , and slew H4296 him on his bed H4191 [H8799] , and he died H6912 [H8799] : and they buried H5892 him in the city H1732 of David H6912 [H8804] , but they buried H6913 him not in the sepulchres H4428 of the kings.
  26 H7194 [H8693] And these are they that conspired H2066 against him; Zabad H1121 the son H8100 of Shimeath H5985 an Ammonitess H3075 , and Jehozabad H1121 the son H8116 of Shimrith H4125 a Moabitess.
  27 H1121 Now concerning his sons H7235 H7230 [H8799] , and the greatness H4853 of the burdens H3247 laid upon him, and the repairing H1004 of the house H430 of God H3789 [H8803] , behold, they are written H4097 in the story H5612 of the book H4428 of the kings H558 . And Amaziah H1121 his son H4427 [H8799] reigned in his stead.
