|Chart of the Kings||King Joash of Israel - Biography||God's Judgment Regarding King Joash of Israel|
Little is recorded about Israel's King Joash. We know that he helped keep alive King Jeroboam's golden calf cult. Also, though he had affection for the LORD's prophet Elisha, this didn't translate into faith or obedience.
2 Kings 13:10-11 In the thirty and seventh year of Joash king of Judah began Jehoash [Joash] the son of Jehoahaz to reign over Israel in Samaria, and reigned sixteen years. And he did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD; he departed not from all the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, who made Israel sin: but he walked therein.
