Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

Amaziah reigned twenty-nine years in the same theocratical spirit as his father Joash, only not like his ancestor David, i.e., according to the correct explanation in 2 Chronicles 25:2, not with שׁלם לבב (see at 1 Kings 11:4), since Amaziah, like his father Joash (see at 2 Kings 12:3), fell into idolatry in the closing years of his reign (cf. 2 Chronicles 25:14.). - Only the high places were not taken away, etc.
