2 Kings 12 (WEBP)

[1] Jehoash began to reign in the seventh year of Jehu, and he reigned forty years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name was Zibiah of Beersheba.
[2] Jehoash did that which was right in Yahweh’s eyes all his days in which Jehoiada the priest instructed him.
[3] However, the high places were not taken away. The people still sacrificed and burned incense in the high places.
[4] Jehoash said to the priests, “All the money of the holy things that is brought into Yahweh’s house, in current money, the money of the people for whom each man is evaluated, and all the money that it comes into any man’s heart to bring into Yahweh’s house,
[5] let the priests take it to them, each man from his donor; and they shall repair the damage to the house, wherever any damage is found.”
[6] But it was so, that in the twenty-third year of King Jehoash the priests had not repaired the damage to the house.
[7] Then King Jehoash called for Jehoiada the priest, and for the other priests, and said to them, “Why aren’t you repairing the damage to the house? Now therefore take no more money from your treasurers, but deliver it for repair of the damage to the house.”
[8] The priests consented that they should take no more money from the people, and not repair the damage to the house.
[9] But Jehoiada the priest took a chest and bored a hole in its lid, and set it beside the altar, on the right side as one comes into Yahweh’s house; and the priests who kept the threshold put all the money that was brought into Yahweh’s house into it.
[10] When they saw that there was much money in the chest, the king’s scribe and the high priest came up, and they put it in bags and counted the money that was found in Yahweh’s house.
[11] They gave the money that was weighed out into the hands of those who did the work, who had the oversight of Yahweh’s house; and they paid it out to the carpenters and the builders who worked on Yahweh’s house,
[12] and to the masons and the stone cutters, and for buying timber and cut stone to repair the damage to Yahweh’s house, and for all that was laid out for the house to repair it.
[13] But there were not made for Yahweh’s house cups of silver, snuffers, basins, trumpets, any vessels of gold or vessels of silver, of the money that was brought into Yahweh’s house;
[14] for they gave that to those who did the work, and repaired Yahweh’s house with it.
[15] Moreover they didn’t demand an accounting from the men into whose hand they delivered the money to give to those who did the work; for they dealt faithfully.
[16] The money for the trespass offerings and the money for the sin offerings was not brought into Yahweh’s house. It was the priests’.
[17] Then Hazael king of Syria went up and fought against Gath, and took it; and Hazael set his face to go up to Jerusalem.
[18] Jehoash king of Judah took all the holy things that Jehoshaphat and Jehoram and Ahaziah, his fathers, kings of Judah, had dedicated, and his own holy things, and all the gold that was found in the treasures of Yahweh’s house, and of the king’s house, and sent it to Hazael king of Syria; and he went away from Jerusalem.
[19] Now the rest of the acts of Joash, and all that he did, aren’t they written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah?
[20] His servants arose and made a conspiracy, and struck Joash at the house of Millo, on the way that goes down to Silla.
[21] For Jozacar the son of Shimeath, and Jehozabad the son of Shomer, his servants, struck him, and he died; and they buried him with his fathers in David’s city; and Amaziah his son reigned in his place.

2 Kings 12 (KJVS)

[1] In the seventh H7651 year H8141 of Jehu H3058 Jehoash H3060 began to reign H4427 (8804); and forty H705 years H8141 reigned H4427 (8804) he in Jerusalem H3389. And his mother’s H517 name H8034 [was] Zibiah H6645 of Beersheba H884.
[2] And Jehoash H3060 did H6213 (8799) [that which was] right H3477 in the sight H5869 of the LORD H3068 all his days H3117 wherein Jehoiada H3077 the priest H3548 instructed H3384 (8689) him.
[3] But the high places H1116 were not taken away H5493 (8804): the people H5971 still sacrificed H2076 (8764) and burnt incense H6999 (8764) in the high places H1116.
[4] And Jehoash H3060 said H559 (8799) to the priests H3548, All the money H3701 of the dedicated things H6944 that is brought H935 (8714) into the house H1004 of the LORD H3068, [even] the money H3701 of every one H376 that passeth H5674 (8802) [the account], the money H3701 that every man H5315 is set at H6187, [and] all the money H3701 that cometh H5927 (8799) into any man’s H376 heart H3820 to bring H935 (8687) into the house H1004 of the LORD H3068,
[5] Let the priests H3548 take H3947 (8799) [it] to them, every man H376 of his acquaintance H4378: and let them repair H2388 (8762) the breaches H919 of the house H1004, wheresoever any breach H919 shall be found H4672 (8735).
[6] But it was [so, that] in the three H7969 H8141 and twentieth H6242 year H8141 of king H4428 Jehoash H3060 the priests H3548 had not repaired H2388 (8765) the breaches H919 of the house H1004.
[7] Then king H4428 Jehoash H3060 called H7121 (8799) for Jehoiada H3077 the priest H3548, and the [other] priests H3548, and said H559 (8799) unto them, Why repair H2388 (8764) ye not the breaches H919 of the house H1004? now therefore receive H3947 (8799) no [more] money H3701 of your acquaintance H4378, but deliver H5414 (8799) it for the breaches H919 of the house H1004.
[8] And the priests H3548 consented H225 (8735) to receive H3947 (8800) no H1115 [more] money H3701 of the people H5971, neither H1115 to repair H2388 (8763) the breaches H919 of the house H1004.
[9] But Jehoiada H3077 the priest H3548 took H3947 (8799) a H259 chest H727, and bored H5344 (8799) a hole H2356 in the lid H1817 of it, and set H5414 (8799) it beside H681 the altar H4196, on the right side H3225 as one H376 cometh H935 (8800) into the house H1004 of the LORD H3068: and the priests H3548 that kept H8104 (8802) the door H5592 put H5414 (8804) therein all the money H3701 [that was] brought H935 (8716) into the house H1004 of the LORD H3068.
[10] And it was [so], when they saw H7200 (8800) that [there was] much H7227 money H3701 in the chest H727, that the king’s H4428 scribe H5608 (8802) and the high H1419 priest H3548 came up H5927 (8799), and they put up in bags H6696 (8799), and told H4487 (8799) the money H3701 that was found H4672 (8737) in the house H1004 of the LORD H3068.
[11] And they gave H5414 (8804) the money H3701, being told H8505 (8794), into the hands H3027 of them that did H6213 (8802) the work H4399, that had the oversight H6485 (8716) (8675) H6485 (8803) of the house H1004 of the LORD H3068: and they laid it out H3318 (8686) to the carpenters H2796 H6086 and builders H1129 (8802), that wrought H6213 (8802) upon the house H1004 of the LORD H3068,
[12] And to masons H1443 (8802), and hewers H2672 (8802) of stone H68, and to buy H7069 (8800) timber H6086 and hewed H4274 stone H68 to repair H2388 (8763) the breaches H919 of the house H1004 of the LORD H3068, and for all that was laid out H3318 (8799) for the house H1004 to repair H2394 [it].
[13] Howbeit there were not made H6213 (8735) for the house H1004 of the LORD H3068 bowls H5592 of silver H3701, snuffers H4212, basons H4219, trumpets H2689, any vessels H3627 of gold H2091, or vessels H3627 of silver H3701, of the money H3701 [that was] brought H935 (8716) into the house H1004 of the LORD H3068:
[14] But they gave H5414 (8799) that to the workmen H4399 H6213 (8802), and repaired H2388 (8765) therewith the house H1004 of the LORD H3068.
[15] Moreover they reckoned H2803 (8762) not with the men H582, into whose hand H3027 they delivered H5414 (8799) the money H3701 to be bestowed H5414 (8800) on workmen H4399: for they dealt H6213 (8802) faithfully H530.
[16] The trespass H817 money H3701 and sin H2403 money H3701 was not brought H935 (8714) into the house H1004 of the LORD H3068: it was the priests H3548’.
[17] Then Hazael H2371 king H4428 of Syria H758 went up H5927 (8799), and fought H3898 (8735) against Gath H1661, and took H3920 (8799) it: and Hazael H2371 set H7760 (8799) his face H6440 to go up H5927 (8800) to Jerusalem H3389.
[18] And Jehoash H3060 king H4428 of Judah H3063 took H3947 (8799) all the hallowed things H6944 that Jehoshaphat H3092, and Jehoram H3088, and Ahaziah H274, his fathers H1, kings H4428 of Judah H3063, had dedicated H6942 (8689), and his own hallowed things H6944, and all the gold H2091 [that was] found H4672 (8737) in the treasures H214 of the house H1004 of the LORD H3068, and in the king’s H4428 house H1004, and sent H7971 (8799) [it] to Hazael H2371 king H4428 of Syria H758: and he went away H5927 (8799) from Jerusalem H3389.
[19] And the rest H3499 of the acts H1697 of Joash H3101, and all that he did H6213 (8804), [are] they not written H3789 (8803) in the book H5612 of the chronicles H1697 H3117 of the kings H4428 of Judah H3063?
[20] And his servants H5650 arose H6965 (8799), and made H7194 (8799) a conspiracy H7195, and slew H5221 (8686) Joash H3101 in the house H1004 of Millo H4407 (8677) H1037, which goeth down H3381 (8802) to Silla H5538.
[21] For Jozachar H3108 the son H1121 of Shimeath H8100, and Jehozabad H3075 the son H1121 of Shomer H7763, his servants H5650, smote H5221 (8689) him, and he died H4191 (8799); and they buried H6912 (8799) him with his fathers H1 in the city H5892 of David H1732: and Amaziah H558 his son H1121 reigned H4427 (8799) in his stead.

Young’s Literal Translation

2 Kings 12 (YLT)

[1] In the seventh year of Jehu reigned hath Jehoash, and forty years he hath reigned in Jerusalem, and the name of his mother is Zibiah of Beer-Sheba,
[2] and Jehoash doth that which is right in the eyes of Jehovah all his days in which Jehoiada the priest directed him,
[3] only, the high places have not turned aside, still are the people sacrificing and making perfume in high places.
[4] And Jehoash saith unto the priests, ‘All the money of the sanctified things that is brought in to the house of Jehovah, the money of him who is passing over, each the money of his valuation, all the money that it goeth up on the heart of a man to bring in to the house of Jehovah,
[5] do the priests take to them, each from his acquaintance, and they strengthen the breach of the house, in all places where there is found a breach.’
[6] And it cometh to pass, in the twenty and third year of king Jehoash, the priests have not strengthened the breach of the house,
[7] and king Jehoash calleth to Jehoiada the priest, and to the priests, and saith unto them, ‘Wherefore are ye not strengthening the breach of the house? and now, receive no money from your acquaintances, but for the breach of the house give it.’
[8] And the priests consent not to receive money from the people, nor to strengthen the breach of the house,
[9] and Jehoiada the priest taketh a chest, and pierceth a hole in its lid, and putteth it near the altar, on the right side, as one cometh in to the house of Jehovah, and the priests keeping the threshold have put there all the money that is brought in to the house of Jehovah.
[10] And it cometh to pass, at their seeing that the money is abundant in the chest, that there goeth up a scribe of the king, and of the high priest, and they bind it up, and count the money that is found in the house of Jehovah,
[11] and have given the weighed money into the hands of those doing the work, those inspecting the house of Jehovah, and they bring it out to those working in the wood, and to builders who are working in the house of Jehovah,
[12] and to those repairing the wall, and to hewers of stone, and to buy wood and hewn stones to strengthen the breach of the house of Jehovah, and for all that goeth out on the house, to strengthen it.
[13] Only, there is not made for the house of Jehovah basins of silver, snuffers, bowls, trumpets, any vessel of gold, and vessel of silver, out of the money that is brought into the house of Jehovah;
[14] for to those doing the work they give it, and they have strengthened with it the house of Jehovah,
[15] and they do not reckon with the men into whose hand they give the money to give to those doing the work, for in faithfulness they are dealing.
[16] The money of a trespass-offering, and the money of sin-offerings is not brought in to the house of Jehovah-for the priests it is.
[17] Then go up doth Hazael king of Aram, and fighteth against Gath, and captureth it, and Hazael setteth his face to go up against Jerusalem;
[18] and Jehoash king of Judah taketh all the sanctified things that Jehoshaphat, and Jehoram, and Ahaziah, his fathers, kings of Judah, had sanctified, and his own sanctified things, and all the gold that is found in the treasures of the house of Jehovah and of the house of the king, and sendeth to Hazael king of Aram, and he goeth up from off Jerusalem.
[19] And the rest of the matters of Joash, and all that he did, are they not written on the book of the Chronicles of the kings of Judah?
[20] And his servants rise, and make a conspiracy, and smite Joash in the house of Millo, that is going down to Silla:
[21] yea, Jozachar son of Shimeath, and Jehozabad son of Shemer, his servants, have smitten him, and he dieth, and they bury him with his fathers in the city of David, and reign doth Amaziah his son, in his stead.
