Context Readings

Joash Repairs The Temple

21 But the people conspired against him, and at the direct orders of the king they stoned him to death in the courtyard of the LORD's Temple. 22 This is how King Joash failed to remember the kindness that Zechariah's father Jehoiada had shown him: he killed his son. As he lay dying, Zechariah cried out, "May the LORD watch this and avenge." 23 At the end of that year, the Aramean army attacked Joash. They invaded Judah and Jerusalem, destroyed every senior official among the people, and sent all of their possessions to the king of Damascus.
