2 Kings 12:2 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Jehoash did - right in the sight of the Lord - While Jehoiada the priest, who was a pious, holy man, lived, Jehoash walked uprightly; but it appears from 2 Chronicles 24:17, 2 Chronicles 24:18, that he departed from the worship of the true God after the death of this eminent high priest, lapsed into idolatry, and seems to have had a share in the murder of Zechariah, who testified against his transgressions, and those of the princes of Judah. See above, 2 Kings 11:20-21 (note).

O how few of the few who begin to live to God continue unto the end!
