(4) Was minded.--Literally, it became with the heart of Joash (2Chronicles 6:8; 2Chronicles 9:1; 1Kings 8:18).

To repair.--See margin to 2Chronicles 15:8. "To restore" is perhaps the best modern equivalent of the Hebrew term. The account of the restoration of the Temple is given here in different language from what we find in the parallel passage, which is not very clear.

The chronicler appears to have paraphrased the account he found in his authority. The Levites are not mentioned in Kings.

Verse 4. - To repair. The idea of this verb (חָדַשׁ) is that of making new. And it came to pass after this,.... After his marriage, when he was about twenty or twenty one years of age, perhaps:

that Joash was minded to repair the house of the Lord; which in some places might be fallen to decay, having been built one hundred and fifty years or more, and in others defaced by Athaliah, and needed ornamenting, see 2 Kings 12:4. 4-14. Joash was minded to repair the house of the Lord—(See on [451]2Ki 12:4-16).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.
