22:10–24:27 Compare 2 Kin. chs. 11 and 12 on the record of Joash. This portion of Chronicles illustrates the close association between king and priest. The Davidic line was preserved by Jehoshabeath and her husband, the priest Jehoiada (22:10–23:21); the Davidic king served faithfully under the influence of Jehoiada (24:1–16); the king failed when he rejected the instruction of Jehoiada’s son, and put him to death (24:17–27). Cooperation of king and priest was essential. See also Zech. 3; 4; 6:9–15.
