People's Dictionary of the Bible - Joash
Joash (jô'ăsh), Jehovah gives. 1. The son and successor of Ahaziah, king of Judah, called also Jehoash. On the murder of his brethren by Athaliah, he was saved by his aunt Jehosheba, the wife of Jehoiada the high priest, who hid him for six years in one of the rooms of the temple. When Joash was 7 years of age, Jehoiada planned with Azariah and others, to place young Joash upon the throne, and to dethrone his grandmother, the wicked Athaliah; and the young king was crowned in the court of the temple with great solemnity. 2 Kings 11:1-21. Joash behaved himself well while Jehoiada lived and was his guide; but no sooner was this good man dead than he began to listen to the counsels of his wicked courtiers. Zechariah the priest, son of Jehoiada, warned him of his sin and danger; but as a reward of bis fidelity, he was, by order of Joash, stoned to death between the porch and the altar, prophesying that God would avenge his death. 2 Chronicles 24:20-22. After suffering a variety of injuries from the Syrians, and after being loaded with ignominy, Joash was murdered by his own servants, after a reign of 41 years. His remains were refused a place in the royal sepulchre. See also 2 Kings 12:1-21; 2 Kings 13:1; 2 Chronicles 22:10-12; 2 Chronicles 23:1-21; 2 Chronicles 24:2.

Watson's Biblical & Theological Dictionary - Joash
son of Ahaziah, king of Judah. When the impious Athaliah undertook to extinguish the race of the kings of Judah, that she might seize the crown herself, she ordered all the princes, her grandchildren, to be murdered. But Jehosheba, the sister of Ahaziah, and wife to the High Priest Jehoiada, rescued young Joash, then a child, from the cruelty of Athaliah, and lodged him in the temple with his nurse. Here he abode six years. In the seventh year Jehoiada procured him to be acknowledged king, and so well concerted his plan, that young Joash was placed on the throne, and saluted king in the temple, before the queen was informed of it. She was killed without the temple, 2 Kings 11:1 , &c. Joash received the diadem, together with the book of the law, from the hands of Jehoiada, the high priest, who, in the young king's name, made a covenant between the Lord, the king, and the people, for their future fidelity to God. He also obliged the people to take an oath of fidelity to the king. Joash was only seven years old when he began to reign, and he reigned forty years at Jerusalem. His mother's name was Zibiah of Beersheba. He governed with justice and piety, so long as he was guided by the High Priest Jehoiada. Yet he did not abolish the high places.
Jehoiada, during the king's minority, had issued orders for collecting voluntary offerings to the holy place, with the design of repairing the temple; but his orders were ill executed till the twentieth year of Joash. Then this prince directed chests to be placed at the entrance of the temple, and an account to be given him of what money was received from them, that it might be faithfully employed in repairing the house of God. Jehoiada dying at the age of a hundred and thirty years, Joash was misled by the evil counsel of his courtiers, who had before been restrained by the high priest's authority. They began to forsake the temple of the Lord, and to worship idols, and groves consecrated to idols. Then the Spirit of the Lord coming upon the High Priest Zechariah, son of Jehoiada, he reproved the people; but they who heard him stoned him, according to orders from their king. It was not long before God inflicted on Joash the just punishment of his ingratitude to Jehoiada, whose son he had so lately murdered. Hazael, king of Syria, besieged Gath, which belonged to Judah; and having taken it he marched against Jerusalem. Joash, to redeem himself from the difficulties of a siege, and from the danger of being plundered, took what money he could find in the temple, which had been consecrated by Ahaziah his father, Jehoram his grandfather, and himself, and gave the whole to Hazael. It is believed by some, that the next year the Syrian army marched again into Judah; but Hazael was not there in person. The Syrians made great havoc, defeated the troops of Joash, entered Jerusalem, slew the princes of Judah, and sent a great booty to the king of Syria at Damascus. They treated Joash himself with great ignominy, and left him extremely ill. His servants then revolted against him, and killed him in his bed, by which the blood of Zechariah the high priest was avenged. He was buried in Jerusalem, but not in the royal sepulchre. Amaziah his son succeeded him.
American Tract Society Bible Dictionary - Joash or Jehoash
The father of Gideon, of the family of Abiezer, in Manasseh. For a long time he was a worshipper of Baal; but when his son boldly attacked idolatry, he also came out on the Lord's side, Judges 6:11,25-32 .
An officer, appointed as keeper of the prophet Micaiah, during Ahab's disastrous war with Syria, 1 Kings 22:26 2 Chronicles 18:1-34 .
The eighth king of Judah, B. C. 878-838. He was the only son of Ahaziah who was not slain by the usurping Athaliah, his grandmother. Being rescued by Jehoshebah his aunt, and secluded six years in the temple, he was raised to the throne when seven years of age through the faithful care of Jehoiada; and while this venerable man survived, Joash served God and prospered. Idols were banished, and the temple was repaired. But afterwards he followed less wholesome counsels; idolatry revived; and when Zechariah the high priest rebuked the guilty people, the ungrateful king caused this servant of God, the son of his benefactor, to be stoned to death. Misfortunes soon multiplied on his head; he was repeatedly humbled by the Syrians, and gave them the temple treasures as a ransom; a loathsome disease imbittered his life, which was very soon cut short by a conspiracy of his servants, and he was not buried in the sepulchre of the kings, 2 Kings 11:1-12:21 2 Chronicles 23:1-24:27 . The prophet Joel was contemporary with him.
The son and successor of Jehoahaz, king of Israel, B. C. 840-825. There was much in his conduct to commend. He had a great regard for the prophet Elisha, and visited him on his deathbed, where by a divine oracle he was assured of three victories over the Syrians. He was also victorious when forced to give battle to Amaziah king of Judah, and was one of the best of the kings of Israel. The worship of the golden calf, however, still continued during his reign, 2 Kings 13:9-25 14:1-8 2 Chronicles 25:1-28 .
Morrish Bible Dictionary - Joash
1. Son of Ahaziah king of Judah. When his grandmother Athaliah attempted to cut off all the seed royal, Joash, then an infant, was hidden and preserved by his aunt, Jehosheba, the wife of Jehoiada the high priest. When he was about seven years old, Jehoiada succeeded in placing him, as the preserved seed of David, on the throne, and putting Athaliah to death. Thus, at that time, did the Lord secure the sure mercies centred in the house of David. He reigned forty years, from B.C. 878 to 839.
During the life of Jehoiada, Joash did that which was right in the sight of the Lord, and with zeal caused the temple to be repaired. But on the death of the high priest, the princes of Judah and the king turned to idolatry. God sent them prophets, but they would not hear. Zechariah, son of Jehoiada, attempted to call them back to the worship of God, but by command of the king he was stoned to death in the court of the temple. God sent the Syrians to punish them: a small company of whom overcame a very great host of Judah, the princes were destroyed, and Joash gave all the treasures of the temple and of the king's house to the Syrians. Joash was now greatly diseased; and his servants conspired against him and slew him. He is very frequently called JEHOASH. 2 Kings 11:2,21 ; 2 Kings 12:1-20 ; 2 Kings 13:1,10 ; 2 Chronicles 22:11 ; 2 Chronicles 24:1-26 ; 2 Chronicles 25:23,25 .
2. Son and successor of Jehoahaz, king of Israel: he reigned sixteen years: B.C. 841 to 825. He did that which was evil in the sight of the Lord, even as Jeroboam; but when Elisha was dying Joash visited him, and wept over him, uttering the same words which Elisha had uttered as he beheld Elijah taken to heaven. Joash had the sense that the powerwhich translated Elijah had been with Elisha, who was now departing. Elisha then prophesied that he should smite Syria. He told the king to smite upon the ground with arrows, and he smote three times. Elisha said that if he had smitten more times he would have consumed Syria; but now he should defeat them only three times. This was fulfilled, Joash smote them three times and recovered the cities of Israel that the king of Syria had taken. After this Amaziah king of Judah asked Joash to let them 'look one another in the face.' Joash in a parable called Judah a thistle, and himself a cedar, and advised Amaziah to stay at home; but he would not, and Judah was smitten. Joash went to Jerusalem, brake down the wall of it, and took away all the treasures of the temple and of the king's house, and returned with hostages to Samaria. Thus the two kingdoms punished each other. 2 Kings 13:9-25 ; 2 Kings 14:1-27 ; 2 Chronicles 25:17-25 ; Hosea 1:1 ; Amos 1:1 . Called also JEHOASH.
3. Father of Gideon: he defended his son when he had thrown down the altar of Baal, saying, If Baal "be a god, let him plead for himself." Judges 6:11,29-31 ; Judges 7:14 ; Judges 8:13,29,32 .
4. Son of Ahab king of Israel. 1 Kings 22:26 ; 2 Chronicles 18:25 .
5. Descendant of Shelah, a son of Judah. 1 Chronicles 4:22 .
6. Son of Becher, a son of Benjamin. 1 Chronicles 7:8 .
7. Son of Shemaah: he resorted to David at Ziklag. 1 Chronicles 12:3 .
8. One who had the care of the stores of oil in the time of David. 1 Chronicles 27:28 .

Joash ordered the demolition of four hundred cubits of the city wall, carried to Samaria all the gold and silver, the rich vessels of the house of God, the treasuries of the royal palace, and the sons of those among his own people who had been hostages there
jo'Ash - For at least twenty-three years, while Jehoiada lived, his reign was very prosperous; but after the death of Jehoiada, Joash fell into the hands of bad advisers, at whose suggestion he revived the worship of Baal and Ashtaroth. When he was rebuked for this by Zechariah, the son of Jehoiada, Joash caused him to be stoned to death in the very court of the Lord's house. Joash had scarcely escaped this danger when he fell into another and fatal one. Joash's reign lasted forty years, from 878 to 838 B. On occasion of a friendly visit paid by Joash to Elisha on his death-bed, the prophet promised him deliverance from the Syrian yoke in Aphek, ( 1 Kings 20:26-30 ) He then bade him smite upon the ground, and the king smote thrice and then stayed. Accordingly Joash did defeat Ben-hadad three times on the field of battle, and recovered from him the cities which Hazael had taken from Jehoahaz. The other great military event of Joash's reign was the successful war with Amaziah king of Judah
Elisha - The pupil and successor of Elijah, a prophet of Israel during the reign of Jehoram, Jehu, Jehoahaz, and Joash, B. He died lamented by king Joash and the people; and a year afterwards, a corpse deposited in the same sepulchre was at once restored to life
Carites - They were military personnel who helped Jehoiada, the priest, install Joash as king and assassinate the queen mother Athaliah
Barachias - ...
Some think him to be Zacharias, the son of Jehoiada, who was killed by the orders of Joash, between the temple and the altar, 2 Chronicles 24:21
Jehoiada - He preserved the life of Joash, the infant son of Ahaziah, and succeeded, with wisdom and energy, in placing him on the throne, and then caused the death of Athaliah. It is recorded that Joash did that which was right in the sight of the Lord all the days of Jehoiada; but on the death of the priest, the king forgot his kindness and slew Zechariah his son
Zabad - A domestic palace servant of king Joash, one of the slayers of Joash; son of Shimeath an Ammonitess (2 Chronicles 24:26). Jozachar in 2 Kings 12:20-21; Zachar is the abbreviation, and Zabad is a transcriber's error for Zachar! One of a powerful conspiracy stirred up by Joash's unpopularity owing to his idolatries, oppression, and foreign disasters (2 Chronicles 24)
Jeho-i'Ada - 884-878, and during the greater portion of the forty-years reign of Joash. He married Jehosheba; and when Athaliah slew all the seed royal to Judah after Ahaziah had been put to death by Jehu, he and his wife stole Joash from among the king's sons and hid him for six years in the temple, and eventually replaced him on the throne of his ancestors

Zabad - Assassin of King Joash (2 Chronicles 24:26 ), called Jozacar in 2 Kings 12:21
Jeroboam (2) - Son of Jehoash, or Joash, and his successor on the throne of Israel
Millo - In 2 Kings 12:20 Joash was slain in the 'house of Millo, which goeth down to Silla:' this may be another place, though apparently it was in Jerusalem
Amaziah - ...
...
The son and successor of Joash, and eighth king of the separate kingdom of Judah (2 Kings 14:1-4 ). Amaziah began to worship some of the idols he took from the Edomites, and this was his ruin, for he was vanquished by Joash, king of Israel, whom he challenged to battle
Jehoahaz - The king humbled himself before God, and deliverance came by the hand of Joash his son, 2 Kings 13:19,25 ...
2
Azariah - Several others: 1 Chronicles 6:36 = Ezra, 1 Chronicles 9:11; Nehemiah 3:23-24; Nehemiah 8:7; 2 Chronicles 29:12; 2 Chronicles 28:12; compare Jeremiah 43:2; Nehemiah 12:32-33; 1 Chronicles 2:38-39; Azariah whose name proves that the genealogy in 1 Chronicles 2:36-41 was made in Hezekiah's reign, for Azariah (1 Chronicles 2:38) appears from 2 Chronicles 23:1; 2 Chronicles 24:1, to have been captain when Joash was seven years old, i. about one generation elder than Joash. After Azariah in that genealogy are six generations, ending with Elishama; and from Joash to Hezekiah also six; therefore Elishama was contemporary with Hezekiah
Millo - Joash was slain at a ‘Beth-millo, on the way that goeth down to Silla’ ( 2 Kings 12:20 )
Adaiah - The father of Maaseiah, who helped make young Joash king instead of Athaliah, the queen mother (2 Chronicles 23:1 )
Porters - We read, in 2 Corinthians 13:14 , of the faithful service they rendered in protecting Joash and slaying Athaliah
Athaliah - Only Joash her grandson, then an infant, was saved by his aunt Jehosheba
Ishbibenob - Other Bible students use Greek manuscript evidence to replace the unusual name Ishbibenob with another—Dodo son of Joash—but this is a drastic solution
Ophrah - Ophrah ‘that pertaineth unto Joash the Abiezrite’ i
Jehosheba - Her position enabled her through God's providence to rescue the little prince Joash, and hide him and his nurse in a bedchamber in the palace, afterward in the temple (2 Chronicles 22:11; 2 Chronicles 23:11; 2 Kings 11:2-3), where he was brought up with her sons, who assisted at his coronation
Bag - The money collected in the temple in the time of Joash, for its reparation, seems, in like manner, to have been told up in bags of equal value; and these were probably delivered sealed to those who paid the workmen, 2 Kings 12:10
Amaziah - The son and successor of Jehoash, or Joash, king of Judah
Bag - of 2 Chronicles 24:8,10 , used of the "box" appointed by King Joash for offerings for the repair of the Temple
Jerubbaal - ) Judges 6:32 translated, "they (not Joash, but one, for the townsmen generally) called him Jeroboam, saying, Let Baal fight against him, because he hath thrown down his altar. " They took up Joash's words: "he that will fight for Baal (seeking to put to death the destroyer of his altar) shall be put to death (himself; let us wait) TILL morning (to see, will Baal avenge his own wrong); let Baal fight for himself
Uzzia(h) - Some conjecture that the Judeans, rather than have King Joash of Israel install a puppet king, put Uzziah forward as king following Amaziah's defeat and subsequent imprisonment by Joash (2 Chronicles 25:21-24 ). and continued as joint regent after his father's release upon the death of Joash (2 Chronicles 25:25 )
Jeroham - Father of captain who helped Jehoiada, the high priest, overthrow Queen Athaliah and install Joash as king about 835 B
Aphek - Possibly Joash smote the Syrians here ( 2 Kings 13:17 ff

Amaziah - Son of Jehoash, or Joash, king of Judah, and who succeeded to the throne: he reigned 29 years, B
Athali'ah - ( 2 Kings 11:1 ) From the slaughter one infant, named Joash, the youngest son of Ahaziah, was rescued by his aunt Jehosheba wife of Jehoiada, (2 Chronicles 23:11 ) the high priest
Shimeath - A name given to the father or mother of one of the murderers of Joash ( 2 Kings 12:21 , 2 Chronicles 24:26 )
Athaliah - One child, Joash, was concealed in the temple, and after Athaliah had reigned six years, he was anointed king and crowned; Athaliah was taken outside the enclosures of the temple and slain, B
za'Bad - ...
Son of Shimeath, an Ammonitess; an assassin who, with Jehozabad, slew King Joash, according to (2 Chronicles 24:26 ) (B
Jehoash - (See Joash [1]. (See Joash Zacharias - The same as the sire of Jehoiada; Joash ungratefully forgetting that he owed his throne to Jehoiada slew Zacharias for his faithful reproof: "Why transgress ye the commandments of Jehovah, that ye cannot prosper? because ye have forsaken Jehovah, He hath also forsaken you. " By Joash's command they stoned Zacharias "in the court of the house of Jehovah!" And to it the tradition may be due which assigns the tomb in the valley of Jehoshaphat to Zacharias. Joash slew other "sons" of Jehoiada besides Zacharias. Barachias may have been a second name of Jehoiada, meaning "the blessed," because he preserved David's house in the person of Joash from the murderous Athaliah, slew her, and restored the rightful king
Amaziah - Eighth king of Judah, son of Joash, began to reign B
Zabad - 2 Chronicles 24:26 , one of the murderers of Joash = Jozacar ( 2 Kings 12:21 ); we should perhaps read Zacar here
Obed-Edom - Joash of Israel took him with the sacred vessels to Samaria following his capture of Jerusalem and of Amaziah king of Judah (2 Chronicles 25:23-24 )
Athaliah - She was married to Jehoram, king of Judah; and, when her son Ahaziah was slam by Jehu, she destroyed the rest of the royal family except Joash, an infant, who was concealed in the temple by his aunt Jehosheba (most likely not Athaliah's daughter), the wife of Jehoiada the high priest
Hazael - Some years passed after this, before Hazael undertook any thing against the kingdom of Judah, it being remote from Damascus; but in the reign of Joash, the son of Jehoahaz, A. But Joash, conscious of his inferiority, bribed him at the price of all the money he could raise, to evacuate Judea, with which he for the moment complied; yet, in the following year, the army of Hazael returned, entered the territories of Judah, and the city of Jerusalem, slew all the princes of the people, and sent a valuable booty to their royal master, 2 Kings 13:22 ; 2 Chronicles 24:23
Hazael - He aimed at the subjugation also of the kingdom of Judah, when Joash obtained peace by giving him "all the gold that was found in the treasures of the house of the Lord, and in the king's house" (2 Kings 12:18 ; 2 Chronicles 24:24 )

Haz'a-el - Amos 6:2 He proceeded to attack Jerusalem, ( 2 Chronicles 24:24 ) and was about to assault the city when Joash bribed him to retire

Bashan - It was conquered by Hazael, but Joash recovered it, 2 Kings 10:33 13:25
Guard - The first refers to the large guard gathered to defend the boy king Joash (2 Chronicles 23:10 )
Aphek - Also Elisha promised Joash victory over the Syrians in Aphek (2 Kings 13:17 )
Aphek - Also Elisha promised Joash victory over the Syrians in Aphek (2 Kings 13:17 )
Amaziah - After the murder of his father Joash, Amaziah became king of Judah (796 BC; 2 Kings 12:20-21; 2 Kings 14:1-5)
Jehoiada - Married, king Jehoram's daughter, sister of king Ahaziah, on whose death by Jehu's hands the queen mother Athaliah slew all the seed royal; but Jehosheba stole Joash the youngest son, and with her husband hid him in the house of God six years. (See JEHOSHEBA; ATHALIAH; Joash. " Jehoiada, having enthroned Joash, restored the temple worship as David had settled it, it having been neglected under the idolatrous Athaliah. " Joash repaired the house by his help, "doing that which was right in the sight of Jehovah" all the days "wherein Jehoiada the priest instructed him. " Joash ordered "the money of the dedicated things" to be applied to the repair of the temple, namely,...
(1) "the money of every one that passeth" the census (not "the account), half a shekel, Exodus 30:13;...
(2) "the money that every man is set (valued) at," namely, the valuation in redeeming the firstborn (Numbers 18:15-16), or in payment for a vow;...
(3) "all the money that cometh into any man's heart to bring into the house of Jehovah," freewill offerings. Otherwise he would be 95 at Joash's accession, supposing him to live 35 of Joash's 40 years of reign, which is improbable; fifteen years before, when Jehoram was 32 (whose daughter he married), he would have been 80 (2 Chronicles 21:5; 2 Chronicles 22:1; 2 Chronicles 22:12). ...
His death was the fatal turning point of Joash's declension. Jehoiada had saved Joash's life and throne, and had been God's providential instrument in preventing the extinction of David's line, which then hung upon the one seemingly frail thread, but which could not be broken since to it belonged the promises of Messiah; he had stifled the idolatry transplanted into Judah by Joram's marriage into apostate Ahab's house, and restored Jehovah's worship
Hamath - , the son of Joash, restored the kingdom to this northern limit ( 2 Kings 14:25 ; 2 Kings 14:28 ), and it was regarded as the legitimate border of the land of Israel ( Numbers 34:8 , Joshua 13:5 ), and was employed as a geographical term ( Numbers 13:21 , cf

Joash, visiting Elisha on his deathbed, by his direction shot arrows eastward, the pledge of the Lord's deliverance from Syria
Beersheba - Zibiah, the mother of Joash, belonged to Beersheba ( 2 Kings 12:1 )
Athaliah - But Jehosheba, the sister of Ahaziah, by the father's side only, was at this time married to Jehoiada, the high priest; and while Athaliah's executioners were murdering the rest, she conveyed Joash the son of Ahaziah away, and kept him and his nurse concealed in an apartment of the temple, during six years

Joash saved Jerusalem only by "sending to Hazael all the hallowed things that Jehoshaphat, Jehoram, and Ahaziah his fathers had dedicated, and his own hallowed things, and all the gold in the treasures of the house of the Lord, and in the king's house" (2 Kings 12:18)

Joash weeps over him as he lies on his deathbed: ‘My father, my father, the chariots of Israel and the horsemen thereof

Anointing - Kings were anointed: Saul, David, Solomon, Joash, Jehu, and Hazael are examples
Jehoahaz - His reign began in the 22nd or even the 21st year (Josephus) of Joash of Judah, rather than the 23rd year.

Judah, Kingdom of - ) Jehoiada deposed her, and restored Joash to the throne, who governed well until Jehoiada's death; then gave ear to the princes, and restored idolatry, slew Zechariah his faithful reprover, and failing to withstand a Syrian invasion was killed by his own servants.

Anoint - As far as we are informed, however, unction, as a sign of investiture with the royal authority, was bestowed only upon Saul and David, and subsequently upon Solomon and Joash, who ascended the throne under such circumstances, that there was danger of their right to the succession being forcibly disputed, 1 Samuel 10:24 ; 2 Samuel 2:4 ; 2 Samuel 5:1-3 ; 1 Chronicles 11:1-2 ; 2 Kings 11:12-20 ; 2 Chronicles 23:1-21
