(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. 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.
