6 But it came about that in the twenty-third year of King Jehoash the priests had not repaired the damages of the house.7 Then King Jehoash called for Jehoiada the priest, and for the other priests and said to them, “Why do you not repair the damages of the house? Now therefore take no more money from your acquaintances, but pay it for the damages of the house.”8 So the priests agreed that they would take no more money from the people, nor repair the damages of the house.
9 But Jehoiada the priest took a chest and bored a hole in its lid and put it beside the altar, on the right side as one comes into the house of the Lord; and the priests who guarded the threshold put in it all the money which was brought into the house of the Lord.10 When they saw that there was much money in the chest, the king’s scribe and the high priest came up and tied it in bags and counted the money which was found in the house of the Lord.11 They gave the money which was weighed out into the hands of those who did the work, who had the oversight of the house of the Lord; and they [a]paid it out to the carpenters and the builders who worked on the house of the Lord;12 and to the masons and the stonecutters, and for buying timber and hewn stone to repair the damages to the house of the Lord, and for all that was [b]laid out for the house to repair it.13 But there were not made for the house of the Lordsilver cups, snuffers, bowls, trumpets, any vessels of gold, or vessels of silver from the money which was brought into the house of the Lord;14 for they gave that to those who did the work, and with it they repaired the house of the Lord.15 Moreover, they did not require an accounting from the men into whose hand they gave the money to pay to those who did the work, for they dealt faithfully.
