And he did that which was right
(See Gill on 2 Kings 15:34),
howbeit, he entered not into the temple of the Lord;
to burn incense, as his father did; he did according to his good ways, but not his evil ones:
and the people did yet corruptly;
in sacrificing and burning incense in the high places, ( 2 Kings 15:35 ) which some think Joash himself did, and is meant in the preceding clause; but the sense given is best.
