2 Kings 13:13

2 Kings 13:13

And Joash slept with his fathers
Or died:

and Jeroboam sat upon his throne;
who was his son; it is not said that he began to sit on it, or to reign, nor to reign in his father's stead; hence it is concluded, as by Kimchi and others, that his father set him on his throne in his lifetime; and the Jewish chronology F12 expressly asserts that he reigned with him one year:

and Joash was buried in Samaria with the kings of Israel;
see ( 2 Kings 13:9 ) , the history of his life and actions does not cease here, but, after an account of the sickness and death of Elisha, it is reassumed, which was necessary to interpose to lead on to it.
