2 Chronicles 25:2
And he did that which was right in the sight of the LORD, but not with a perfect heart.

Now after the death of Jehoiada came the princes of Judah, and made obeisance to the king. Then the king hearkened unto them…

Isaiah 29:13
Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:









(2) And Joash did.--So 2Kings 13:3.

All the days of Jehoiada the priest.--Kings: "all his days, while (or because) Jehoiada the priest instructed him." The expression "all his days" is of course relative to the clause which follows it; and the chronicler has accurately given the meaning.

Verse 2. - All the days of Jehoiada. Of the "forty years" mentioned in the former verse, these "days of Jehoiada" will cover, some, at any rate, say, two years more than "twenty-two years;" for compare our vers. 6, 12-15 with the parallel, 2 Kings 12:6, 7, 9, noting the thenceforward silence there respecting Jehoiada, and even making ample allowance for it.
