Treasury of Scripture

And Amaziah the son of Joash king of Judah lived after the death of Jehoash son of Jehoahaz king of Israel fifteen years.

A.

2 Kings 14:1,2,23
In the second year of Joash son of Jehoahaz king of Israel reigned Amaziah the son of Joash king of Judah…

2 Kings 13:10
In the thirty and seventh year of Joash king of Judah began Jehoash the son of Jehoahaz to reign over Israel in Samaria, and reigned sixteen years.

2 Chronicles 25:25
And Amaziah the son of Joash king of Judah lived after the death of Joash son of Jehoahaz king of Israel fifteen years.









(17) Fifteen years.--He came to the throne in the second year of Jehoash, who reigned sixteen years (2Kings 13:10), and reigned twenty-nine years (2Kings 14:2). The different data are thus self-consistent. Jehoash appears to have died very soon after his victory--perhaps in the following year.

Verse 17. - And Amaziah the son of Joash King of Judah lived after the death of Jehoash son of Jehoahaz King of Israel fifteen years. This note of time is based on ver. 2, which makes Amaziah begin to reign in the second year of Joash of Israel, and hold the throne for twenty-nine years. If he really began to reign in the fourth year of Joash, he would have survived him only thirteen years (see the comment on ver. 2).
