Second Kings 12


12:1 In the seventh year of Jehu, Jehoash began to reign; and
 forty years reigned he in Jerusalem. And his mother's name
 [was] Zibiah of Beer-sheba.
12:2 And Jehoash did [that which was] right in the sight of the
 LORD all his days wherein Jehoiada the priest instructed him.
12:3 But the high places were not taken away: the people still
 sacrificed and burnt incense in the high places.
12:4 And Jehoash said to the priests, All the money of the
 dedicated things that is brought into the house of the LORD,
 [even] the money of every one that passeth [the account], the
 money that every man is set at, [and] all the money that cometh
 into any man's heart to bring into the house of the LORD,
12:5 Let the priests take [it] to them, every man of his
 acquaintance: and let them repair the breaches of the house,
 wherever any breach shall be found.
12:6 But it was [so], [that] in the three and twentieth year of
 king Jehoash the priests had not repaired the breaches of the
 house.
12:7 Then king Jehoash called for Jehoiada the priest, and the
 [other] priests, and said to them, Why repair ye not the
 breaches of the house? now therefore receive no [more] money of
 your acquaintance, but deliver it for the breaches of the
 house.
12:8 And the priests consented to receive no [more] money of the
 people, neither to repair the breaches of the house.
12:9 But Jehoiada the priest took a chest, and bored a hole in
 the lid of it, and set it beside the altar, on the right side
 as one cometh into the house of the LORD: and the priests that
 kept the door put in it all the money [that was] brought into
 the house of the LORD.
12:10 And it was [so], when they saw that [there was] much money
 in the chest, that the king's scribe and the high priest came
 up, and they put up in bags, and counted the money [that was]
 found in the house of the LORD.
12:11 And they gave the money, being counted, into the hands of
 them that did the work, that had the oversight of the house of
 the LORD: and they laid it out to the carpenters and builders,
 that wrought upon the house of the LORD,
12:12 And to masons, and hewers of stone, and to buy timber and
 hewed stone to repair the breaches of the house of the LORD,
 and for all that was laid out for the house to repair [it].
12:13 Yet, there were not made for the house of the LORD bowls
 of silver, snuffers, basons, trumpets, any vessels of gold, or
 vessels of silver, of the money [that was] brought into the
 house of the LORD:
12:14 But they gave that to the workmen, and repaired with it
 the house of the LORD.
12:15 Moreover, they reckoned not with the men, into whose hand
 they delivered the money to be bestowed on workmen: for they
 dealt faithfully.
12:16 The trespass-money and sin-money was not brought into the
 house of the LORD: it was the priests'.
12:17 Then Hazael king of Syria went up, and fought against
 Gath, and took it; and Hazael set his face to go up to
 Jerusalem.
12:18 And Jehoash king of Judah took all the hallowed things
 that Jehoshaphat, and Jehoram, and Ahaziah, his fathers, kings
 of Judah, had dedicated, and his own hallowed things, and all
 the gold [that was] found in the treasures of the house of the
 LORD, and in the king's house, and sent [it] to Hazael king of
 Syria: and he went away from Jerusalem.
12:19 And the rest of the acts of Joash, and all that he did,
 [are] they not written in the book of the chronicles of the
 kings of Judah?
12:20 And his servants arose, and made a conspiracy, and slew
 Joash in the house of Millo, which goeth down to Silla.
12:21 For Jozachar the son of Shimeath, and Jehozabad the son of
 Shomer, his servants, smote him, and he died; and they buried
 him with his fathers in the city of David: And Amaziah his son
 reigned in his stead.
