Introduction to 2 Chronicles Chapter 24

This chapter begins with the reign of Joash king of Judah, son of Ahaziah, 2 Chronicles 24:1, relates his concern and care to repair the temple, 2 Chronicles 24:4, the death of Jehoiada the priest, during whose life he reigned well, but after his death sadly apostatized, 2 Chronicles 24:15, for which, being reproved by Zechariah, he was so wroth with him as to order him to be stoned, 2 Chronicles 24:20, wherefore for these evils enemies were raised up against him; he was smitten with diseases, and his servants conspired against him and slew him, and would not bury him among the kings, 2 Chronicles 24:23.
