2 Kings 12

NIRV 1 Joash became king of Judah. It was in the seventh year of Jehu's rule. Joash ruled in Jerusalem for 40 years. His mother's name was Zibiah. She was from Beersheba. NIV 1 In the seventh year of Jehu, Joash became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem forty years. His mother’s name was Zibiah; she was from Beersheba. NIRV 2 Joash did what was right in the eyes of the Lord. He lived that way as long as the priest Jehoiada was teaching him. NIV 2 Joash did what was right in the eyes of the LORD all the years Jehoiada the priest instructed him. NIRV 3 But the high places weren't removed. The people continued to offer sacrifices and burn incense there. NIV 3 The high places, however, were not removed; the people continued to offer sacrifices and burn incense there. NIRV 4 Joash spoke to the priests. He said, "Collect all of the money the people bring as sacred offerings to the LORD's temple. That includes the money that is collected when the men who are able to serve in the army are counted. It includes the money that is received from people who make a special promise to the Lord. It also includes the money people bring to the temple just because they want to. NIV 4 Joash said to the priests, “Collect all the money that is brought as sacred offerings to the temple of the LORD—the money collected in the census, the money received from personal vows and the money brought voluntarily to the temple. NIRV 5 "Let each priest receive the money from one of the people who are in charge of the temple's treasures. Let all of that money be used to repair the temple where it needs it." NIV 5 Let every priest receive the money from one of the treasurers, then use it to repair whatever damage is found in the temple.” NIRV 6 It was now the 23rd year of King Joash. And the priests still hadn't repaired the temple. NIV 6 But by the twenty-third year of King Joash the priests still had not repaired the temple. NIRV 7 So the king sent for the priest Jehoiada and the other priests. He asked them, "Why aren't you repairing the temple where it needs it? Don't take any more money from the people who are in charge of the treasures. Instead, hand it over so the temple can be repaired." NIV 7 Therefore King Joash summoned Jehoiada the priest and the other priests and asked them, “Why aren’t you repairing the damage done to the temple? Take no more money from your treasurers, but hand it over for repairing the temple.” NIRV 8 The priests agreed that they wouldn't collect any more money from the people. They also agreed that they wouldn't repair the temple themselves. NIV 8 The priests agreed that they would not collect any more money from the people and that they would not repair the temple themselves. NIRV 9 The priest Jehoiada got a chest. He drilled a hole in its lid. He placed the chest beside the altar for burnt offerings. The chest was on the right side as people enter the LORD's temple. Some priests guarded the entrance. They put into the chest all of the money the people brought to the temple. NIV 9 Jehoiada the priest took a chest and bored a hole in its lid. He placed it beside the altar, on the right side as one enters the temple of the LORD. The priests who guarded the entrance put into the chest all the money that was brought to the temple of the LORD. NIRV 10 From time to time there was a large amount of money in the chest. When that happened, the royal secretary and the high priest came. They counted the money the people had brought to the temple. Then they put it into bags. NIV 10 Whenever they saw that there was a large amount of money in the chest, the royal secretary and the high priest came, counted the money that had been brought into the temple of the LORD and put it into bags. NIRV 11 After they added it all up, they used it to repair the temple. They gave it to the men who had been put in charge of the work. Those men used it to pay the workers. They paid the builders and those who worked with wood. NIV 11 When the amount had been determined, they gave the money to the men appointed to supervise the work on the temple. With it they paid those who worked on the temple of the LORD—the carpenters and builders, NIRV 12 They paid those who cut stones and those who laid them. They bought lumber and blocks of stone. So they used the money to repair the LORD's temple. They also paid all of the other costs to make the temple like new again. NIV 12 the masons and stonecutters. They purchased timber and blocks of dressed stone for the repair of the temple of the LORD, and met all the other expenses of restoring the temple. NIRV 13 The money the people brought to the LORD's temple wasn't used to make silver bowls. It wasn't used for wick cutters, sprinkling bowls or trumpets. And it wasn't used for any other articles made out of gold or silver. NIV 13 The money brought into the temple was not spent for making silver basins, wick trimmers, sprinkling bowls, trumpets or any other articles of gold or silver for the temple of the LORD; NIRV 14 Instead, it was paid to the workers. They used it to repair the temple. NIV 14 it was paid to the workers, who used it to repair the temple. NIRV 15 The royal secretary and the high priest didn't require a report from those who were in charge of the work. That's because they were completely honest. They always paid the workers. NIV 15 They did not require an accounting from those to whom they gave the money to pay the workers, because they acted with complete honesty. NIRV 16 Money was received from those who brought guilt offerings and sin offerings. But it wasn't taken to the LORD's temple. It belonged to the priests. NIV 16 The money from the guilt offerings and sin offerings was not brought into the temple of the LORD; it belonged to the priests. NIRV 17 About that time Hazael, the king of Aram, went up and attacked Gath. Then he captured it. After that, he turned back to attack Jerusalem. NIV 17 About this time Hazael king of Aram went up and attacked Gath and captured it. Then he turned to attack Jerusalem. NIRV 18 But Joash, the king of Judah, didn't want to go to war. So he got all of the sacred objects. They had been set apart to the LORD by the kings who had ruled over Judah before him. They were Jehoshaphat, Jehoram and Ahaziah. Joash got the gifts he himself had set apart. He got all of the gold that was among the temple treasures. He also got all of the gold from the royal palace. He sent all of those things to Hazael, the king of Aram. Then Hazael pulled his army back from Jerusalem. NIV 18 But Joash king of Judah took all the sacred objects dedicated by his predecessors—Jehoshaphat, Jehoram and Ahaziah, the kings of Judah—and the gifts he himself had dedicated and all the gold found in the treasuries of the temple of the LORD and of the royal palace, and he sent them to Hazael king of Aram, who then withdrew from Jerusalem. NIRV 19 The other events of the rule of Joash are written down. Everything he did is written down. All of those things are written in the official records of the kings of Judah. NIV 19 As for the other events of the reign of Joash, and all he did, are they not written in the book of the annals of the kings of Judah? NIRV 20 The officials of Joash made evil plans against him. They killed him at Beth Millo. It happened on the road that goes down to Silla. NIV 20 His officials conspired against him and assassinated him at Beth Millo, on the road down to Silla. NIRV 21 The officials who murdered him were Jozabad and Jehozabad. Jozabad was the son of Shimeath. Jehozabad was the son of Shomer. After Joash died, his body was buried in the family tomb in the City of David. His son Amaziah became the next king after him. NIV 21 The officials who murdered him were Jozabad son of Shimeath and Jehozabad son of Shomer. He died and was buried with his ancestors in the City of David. And Amaziah his son succeeded him as king.
