2 Chronicles 24:3 (King James Version)
And Jehoiada took for him two wives; and he begat sons and daughters.
- took for him
- Not for himself, as the Jewish expositors suppose, but for Joash; for Jehoiada's advanced age renders it highly improbable that he should take them for himself. He was born in the reign of Solomon, and lived through six successive reigns; and must, on any computation, have been upwards of 100 years old when Joash began to reign.
