1. Jehoash began to reign, and forty years reigned he in Jerusalem] The R.V. puts the words into the usual order in these recitals, by placing ‘began’ before ‘Jehoash’ and ‘he reigned’ before ‘forty years’.Verse 1. - In the seventh year of Jehu. Athaliah began to reign very soon after the accession of Jehu (2 Kings 11:1), and reigned six full years (ver. 3). The first year of Joash was thus parallel with Jehu's seventh. Jehoash - or Joash, as he is called sometimes in Kings (2 Kings 11:2; 2 Kings 13:1, 10), and always in Chronicles - began to reign; and forty years reigned he in Jerusalem - the writer of Chronicles (2 Chronicles 24:1) and Josephus ('Ant. Jud.,' 9:8. § 4) agree - and his mother's name was Zibiah of Beersheba. Josephus calls her "Sabia." Nehemiah 3:28; for this was a gate in the city wall, whereas the road from the temple to the royal mews, which were no doubt near the palace, was inside the wall.
