2 Kings 12:18

2 Kings 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
To sacred uses, and had laid up in the temple:

and his own hallowed things:
which he had devoted to the same uses:

and all the gold [that was] found in the treasures of the house of the
Lord:
which were gifts and presents from divers persons for sacred services:

and sent it to Hazael king of Syria, and he went away from Jerusalem;
to bribe him, that he might desist from his purpose; which showed a meanness of spirit, and was the effect of his idolatry and apostasy, having forsaken the Lord, and being forsaken by him; in whom should have been his trust and confidence, and then he need not have been afraid to meet the king of Syria.
