1 Jehoash was seven years old when he came to the throne.
1Chr 3:11 2Chr 24:1-14 2Kgs 9:27 2Kgs 11:1-4 2Kgs 11:21
2 Jehoash became king in the seventh year of Jehu, and reigned for forty years in Jerusalem. His mother's name was Zibiah of Beersheba.
2Chr 24:2 2Chr 24:17-22 2Chr 25:2 2Chr 26:4 2Kgs 14:3
3 All his life Jehoash did what Yahweh regards as right, having been instructed by Jehoiada the priest.
2Kgs 14:4 1Kgs 15:14 1Kgs 22:43 2Kgs 15:35 2Kgs 18:4 2Chr 31:4 Jer 2:20
4 The high places, however, were not abolished, and the people still offered sacrifices and incense on the high places.
2Kgs 22:4 Exod 35:5 1Chr 29:3-9 Exod 35:29 Exod 30:12-16 Exod 35:22 1Chr 29:17
5 Jehoash said to the priests, 'All the money from the sacred revenues brought to the Temple of Yahweh, the money from personal taxes, and all the money voluntarily offered to the Temple-
Isa 58:12 1Kgs 11:27 2Chr 24:5 2Chr 24:7 2Kgs 12:12 2Kgs 22:5-6
6 the priests are to receive this individually from people of their acquaintance and will carry out all the repairs to the Temple which need to be made.'
1Pet 5:2 1Sam 2:29-30 2Chr 29:34 Isa 56:10-12 Mal 1:10 Phil 2:21
7 Now in the twenty-third year of King Jehoash the priests had done no repairs to the Temple;
1Chr 21:3 2Chr 23:1 2Chr 24:5-14 2Chr 24:16 2Kgs 11:4 2Kgs 12:2
8 so King Jehoash summoned Jehoiada the priest and the other priests. 'Why are you not repairing the Temple?' he asked. 'You are no longer to accept money from people of your acquaintance but are to hand it over for the Temple repairs.'
9 The priests agreed to accept no money from the people and no longer to be responsible for repairs to the Temple.
Mark 12:41 Jer 35:4 Luke 21:1 Ps 84:10 1Chr 15:18 1Chr 15:24 2Chr 24:8-14
10 Jehoiada the priest took a chest, bored a hole in the lid and placed it beside the pillar, to the right of the entry to the Temple of Yahweh; in it the priests who guarded the threshold put all the money which was given for the Temple of Yahweh.
2Sam 8:17 2Kgs 19:2 2Kgs 22:12 2Kgs 5:23 2Kgs 22:3-4 2Sam 20:25
11 Whenever they saw that there was a great deal of money in the chest, the king's secretary would come, and they would empty it out and reckon the money then in the Temple of Yahweh.
2Chr 24:11-12 2Chr 34:9-11 2Kgs 22:5-6
12 Once checked, they paid this money over to the masters of works attached to the Temple of Yahweh, and these in turn spent it on carpenters and builders working on the Temple of Yahweh,
2Kgs 22:5-6 1Kgs 5:17-18 Ezra 3:7 Ezra 5:8 Luke 21:5
13 on masons and stonecutters, and on buying timber and dressed stone to be used for repairs to the Temple of Yahweh; in short, for all the costs of the Temple repairs.
2Chr 24:14 1Kgs 7:48-50 Ezra 1:9-11 Num 7:13-14 Num 10:2
14 But no silver basins, knives, sprinkling bowls, trumpets or gold or silver objects were made for the Temple of Yahweh out of the money presented,
15 which was all given to the masters of works for repairing the Temple of Yahweh.
2Kgs 22:7 1Cor 4:2-3 2Chr 34:12 3John 1:5 Luke 16:1 Luke 16:10-11 Matt 24:45
16 No accounts were kept with the men to whom the money was paid over to be spent on the workmen, since they were honest in their work.
Lev 7:7 Lev 5:15-18 Lev 4:24 Lev 4:29 Hos 4:8 Num 5:8-10 Num 18:8-9
17 Money offered in expiation of an offence or of a sin was not given to the Temple of Yahweh; that was for the priests.
2Chr 24:23-24 1Chr 8:13 1Chr 18:1 1Kgs 2:39-40 1Kgs 19:17 1Sam 27:2 2Kgs 8:12-15
18 At that time Hazael king of Aram went to war against Gath, and captured it; he then prepared to attack Jerusalem.
1Kgs 15:18 2Kgs 18:15-16 1Kgs 14:26 2Chr 16:2 2Kgs 12:4 2Kgs 16:8
19 Jehoash king of Judah took all the sacred offerings dedicated by his ancestors, the kings of Judah, Jehoshaphat, Jehoram and Ahaziah, with those which he himself had dedicated, and all the gold which was to be found in the treasuries of the Temple of Yahweh and of the palace; he sen it all to Hazael king of Aram, who retired from Jerusalem.

20 The rest of the history of Joash, his entire career, is this not recorded in the Book of the Annals of the Kings of Judah?
2Kgs 14:5 2Sam 5:9 Judg 9:6 1Kgs 11:27 2Chr 24:24-27 2Chr 25:27 2Chr 33:24
21 His own retainers rebelled and hatched a plot; they murdered Joash in the palace of the Millo . . .
2Chr 24:26-27 2Kgs 14:1
22 Jozacar son of Shimeath and Jehozabad son of Shomer were the retainers who struck the blows from which he died. He was buried with his ancestors in the City of David; his son Amaziah succeeded him.
