2 Kings 12
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1In the seventh year of Yahu Yoash became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem forty years, and the name of his mother was Tsuba of Beersheba. 2And Yoash did what is excellent before LORD JEHOVAH all his days that Yawida the Priest was teaching him. 3However, he did not remove the high places, and the people were still sacrificing and were burning incense on high places.

4And Yoash said to the Priests: “All the money of holiness that enters into the house of LORD JEHOVAH, money that a man gave for the redemption of his soul, all the money that a man considers in his heart to bring into the house of LORD JEHOVAH 5The Priests shall take for themselves, each man, from whatever is decided, and they shall be bringing for the repair of the house wherever repairing is possible in it.

6And in the twentythird year of King Yoash, the Priests had not made a repair of the house. 7And King Yoash called Yawida the Priest and the Priests and said to them: “Why have you not made repairs of the house? Now you will not take money from those who are giving it to you. Give it for the repair of the house.” 8And the Priests were persuaded not to take money from the people and to not make the repairs of the house.

9And Yawida Priest took one chest and bored a hole in its lid, and he placed it on the side of the altar at the right side where a man enters the house of LORD JEHOVAH, and the Priests, the keepers of the door, set all the money there that came into the house of LORD JEHOVAH. 10And when they saw that much money was in the chest, the Scribes of the King and the Great Priest came up, and they came up and they counted and bound up the money that was found in the house of LORD JEHOVAH. 11And they gave the bound up silver to the Servants of the work who were authorized in the house of LORD JEHOVAH, and they gave it to the Carpenters and to the Stone Masons who worked in the house of LORD JEHOVAH 12And to the Artisans and to the Cutters of stone to buy wood and cut stones to make the repair of the house of LORD JEHOVAH, and for everything that is spent for the house to restore it. 13And there were not made in the house of LORD JEHOVAH basins of silver, neither firepans, neither censers, neither horns, neither any vessel of gold or vessels of silver, of the money that came into the house of LORD JEHOVAH. 14But they gave it to those doing the work and by it they repaired the house of LORD JEHOVAH. 15And they made no accounting with the men who were giving them the money to give to those doing the work, because they gave the money of the repair by faith. 16And the money of the offerings and the money that was in exchange for sin did not go into the house of LORD JEHOVAH, but was for the Priests.

17Then Khezael King of Edom went up and fought with Gath and defeated it, and Khezael set his face to go up against Jerusalem. 18And Yoash, King of Yehuda, took all the holy things that Yushaphat and Yoram and Ekhazyah the fathers of the King of Yehuda had hallowed, and his holy things and all the gold that was found in the house of the treasure of the house of LORD JEHOVAH and in the house of the King, and he sent to Khezael, King of Edom, and he was brought up from Jerusalem.

19And the rest of the words of Yoash and everything that he did, behold they are written in the book of The Chronicles of the Kings of Yehuda. 20And the Servants of Yoash arose and they provoked a rebellion and they killed Yoash in the house of Milo when he went down to Sala. 21Yuzakar, son of Shemath, and Yuzabar, son of Shamir, his Servants, beat him and he died, and he was buried with his parents in the city of David, and Amutsia his son reigned after him.
