2 Chr 24:2

24:2 all the days of Jehoiada. Joash’s positive accomplishments were the result of the influence of Jehoiada (24:14). After Jehoiada’s death, Joash turned away from the Lord (24:17–19; cf. 26:5). The historian illustrates the importance of mutual support between king and priest (22:10–24:27 note).
