Joiada the high priest causeth Joas to be made king: Athalia to be slain, and idolatry to be destroyed.
And Joiada prince of the race of Aaron, and with him three thousand seven hundred.
So the king commanded Banaias, the son of Joiada: and he went out and struck him; and he died.
For Joiada the high priest permitted not the companies to depart, which were accustomed to succeed one another every week.
And king Solomon sent by the hand of Banaias, the son of Joiada, who slew him, and he died.
Joas reigneth well all the days of Joiada: afterwards falleth into idolatry and causeth Zacharias to be slain.
And Joiada took for him two wives, by whom he had sons and daughters.
And king Joas did not remember the kindness that Joiada his father had done to him, but killed his son.
But Joiada grew old and was full of days, and died when he was a hundred and thirty years old.
After the death of Joiada, the younger son, trusting in the countenance of Bagoas, came forward to seize the high-priest's diadem.
