all his days
2 Kings 12:2
12:2 all his days. Joash, or Jehoash, turned out to be a good king, for a while. However, this lasted only as long as Jehoiada, his mentor and adviser lived. See note on II Chronicles 24:15. Even during his years of honoring the Lord, he failed to ban the practice of pagan religions in the land (II Kings 12:3).
