What does 2 Kings 12:2 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
2 Kings 12:2

And Jehoash did that which was right in the sight of the Lord
all his days
Worshipping the only true God, and ruling and walking according to the law of God:

wherein Jehoiada the priest instructed him;
and so long as he observed his instructions, and as long as that priest lived, he reigned well; for to that period "all his days must be limited"; for after his death he was seduced by the princes of Judah to idolatry, and lived scandalously, and died ignominiously; see ( 2 Chronicles 24:2 2 Chronicles 24:7 2 Chronicles 24:25 ) .
