And when they had made an end, they brought the rest of the money before the king and Jehoiada, whereof were made vessels for the house of HaShem, even vessels wherewith to minister, and buckets, and pans, and vessels of gold and silver. And they offered burnt-offerings in the house of HaShem continually all the days of Jehoiada.
But Jehoiada waxed old and was full of days, and he died; a hundred and thirty years old was he when he died.
And they buried him in the city of David among the kings, because he had done good in Israel, and toward G-d and His house.
Now after the death of Jehoiada came the princes of Judah, and prostrated themselves before the king. Then the king hearkened unto them.
And they forsook the house of HaShem, the G-d of their fathers, and served the Asherim and the idols; and wrath came upon Judah and Jerusalem for this their guiltiness.
Yet He sent prophets to them, to bring them back unto HaShem; and they admonished them, but they would not give ear.
And the spirit of G-d clothed Zechariah the son of Jehoiada the priest; and he stood above the people, and said unto them: 'Thus saith G-d: Why transgress ye the commandments of HaShem, that ye cannot prosper? because ye have forsaken HaShem, He hath also forsaken you.'
And they conspired against him, and stoned him with stones at the commandment of the king in the court of the house of HaShem.
Thus Joash the king remembered not the kindness which Jehoiada his father had done to him, but slew his son. And when he died, he said: 'The HaShem look upon it, and require it.'
And it came to pass, when the year was come about, that the army of the Arameans came up against him; and they came to Judah and Jerusalem, and destroyed all the princes of the people from among the people, and sent all the spoil of them unto the king of Damascus.
For the army of the Arameans came with a small company of men; and HaShem delivered a very great host into their hand, because they had forsaken HaShem, the G-d of their fathers. So they executed judgment upon Joash.
And when they were departed from him--for they left him in great diseases--his own servants conspired against him for the blood of the sons of Jehoiada the priest, and slew him on his bed, and he died; and they buried him in the city of David, but they buried him not in the sepulchres of the kings.
And these are they that conspired against him: Zabad the son of Shimeath the Ammonitess, and Jehozabad the son of Shimrith the Moabitess.
Now concerning his sons, and the multitude of the burdens against him, and the rebuilding of the house of G-d, behold, they are written in the commentary of the book of the kings. And Amaziah his son reigned in his stead.
