Joash Orders Repair of the Temple
12The king and Jehoiada gave it to those who did the work of the service of the house of the LORD; and they hired masons and carpenters to restore the house of the LORD, and also workers in iron and bronze to repair the house of the LORD. 13So the workmen labored, and the repair work progressed in their hands, and they restored the house of God according to its specifications and strengthened it. 14When they had finished, they brought the rest of the money before the king and Jehoiada; and it was made into utensils for the house of the LORD, utensils for the service and the burnt offering, and pans and utensils of gold and silver. And they offered burnt offerings in the house of the LORD continually all the days of Jehoiada.…

Treasury of Scripture

So the workmen worked, and the work was perfected by them, and they set the house of God in his state, and strengthened it.

the work was perfected by them [heb] the healing went upon the work by their hand

Nehemiah 4:7 But it came to pass, that when Sanballat, and Tobiah, and the Arabians, …

they set, et. That is, `they restored it to its former proper state.'

in his state

Mark 13:1,2 And as he went out of the temple, one of his disciples said to him, …

(13, 14) The writer concludes in his own fashion, freely modifying the older account to suit the needs of his contemporaries. (The Syriac and Arabic versions omit both verses.)

(13) So the workmen wrought.--Literally, And the makers of the work made.

And the work was perfected by them.--Literally, and a bandage was applied to the work by their hand. This curious metaphor, expressive of restoration, is used again in a similar way in Nehemiah 4:1, "a bandage was applied to the walls of Jerusalem." Jeremiah had used it before (Jeremiah 8:22; Jeremiah 30:17; comp. also Isaiah 58:8) of the national restoration.

And they set the house of God in his state.--Rather, and they made the house of God to stand according to the measure thereof, i.e., in its original proportions. (Comp. Exodus 30:32 : mthkoneth, "measure," "proportion.") This verse is not read in Kings.

Before the king and Jehoiada.--The expression appears to be characteristic of the present account. (Comp. Note on 2Chronicles 24:11.)

Verse 13. - The work was perfected by their hands. The margin gives the literal rendering, "healing" or health, or, i.e., recovery, "went up upon the work." The lively figure of the Hebrew word used (אֲרוּכָה) is very intelligible. The term is employed in only five other places, viz. Nehemiah 4:7 (Authorized Version, "The walls were made up;" Revised Version better, The repairing of the walls went forward); Isaiah 58:8; Jeremiah 8:22; Jeremiah 30:17; Jeremiah 33:6; in each of which four instances, in both Authorized Version and Revised Version, the literal rendering "health" or "healing" is found. In his state; equivalent to in its stateliness, perhaps the idea of the Hebrew word מַתְכֻּנְהּו [only used four other times, and then rendered once "tale" (Exodus 5:8), twice "composition" (2 Chronicles 30:32, 37), once "measure" (Ezekiel 45:11)], being measure, or proportion, or rate. So the workmen wrought,.... The masons, carpenters, blacksmiths, and brasiers:

and the work was perfected by them; the business of repairs was completely finished:

and they set the house of God in his state; as it was at first:

and strengthened it; so that it seemed as firm and stable as when first built. 24:1-14 Joash is more zealous about the repair of the temple than Jehoiada himself. It is easier to build temples, than to be temples to God. But the repairing of places for public worship is a good work, which all should promote. And many a good work would be done that now lies undone, if active men would put it forward.
