The Chronicler praises Joash/Jehoash’s restoration of the temple (2 Chr 24:4–14) yet also relates the king’s subsequent falling away and the nation’s serving of “the asherim and the idols” (2 Chr 24:18). In the Chronicler’s account of Amaziah, no sacriﬁce at the high places is recorded (although his defeat in battle against Jehoash of Israel is attributed to God as punishment for worshiping the gods of Seir “and making oﬀerings to them [r+q יMhlw]” [2 Chr 25:14, 20]).
