¶ And Jeho'ash said to the priests, All the money of the dedicated things that is brought into the house of the LORD, even the money of every one that passeth the account, the money that every man is set at, Ex. 30.11-16and all the money that cometh into any man's heart to bring into the house of the LORD,
Then king Jeho'ash called for Jehoi'ada the priest, and the other priests, and said unto them, Why repair ye not the breaches of the house? now therefore receive no more money of your acquaintance, but deliver it for the breaches of the house.

And they gave the money, being told, into the hands of them that did the work, that had the oversight of the house of the LORD: and they laid it out to the carpenters and builders, that wrought upon the house of the LORD,
And Jeho'ash king of Judah took all the hallowed things that Jehosh'aphat, and Jeho'ram, and Ahazi'ah, his fathers, kings of Judah, had dedicated, and his own hallowed things, and all the gold that was found in the treasures of the house of the LORD, and in the king's house, and sent it to Haz'a-el king of Syria: and he went away from Jerusalem.
For Joz'achar the son of Shim'e-ath, and Jehoz'abad the son of Shomer, his servants, smote him, and he died; and they buried him with his fathers in the city of David: and Amazi'ah his son reigned in his stead.
