2 Kings 12:1 - Exposition

In the seventh year of Jehu. Athaliah began to reign very soon after the accession of Jehu ( 2 Kings 11:1 ), and reigned six full years ( 2 Kings 12:3 ). The first year of Joash was thus parallel with Jehu's seventh. Jehoash —or Joash , as he is called sometimes in Kings ( 2 Kings 11:2 ; 2 Kings 13:1 , 2 Kings 13:10 ), and always in Chronicles— began to reign; and forty years reigned he in Jerusalem— the writer of Chronicles ( 2 Chronicles 24:1 ) and Josephus ('Ant. Jud.,' 2 Kings 9:8 . § 4) agree— and his mother's name was Zibiah of Beersheba. Josephus calls her "Sabia."
