Vetting Status: high
[Joash], king of Jerusalem, after the death of Jehoiada the high priest,[1] betrayed his [former] care for God. The leading men of the people were also corrupted along with him, so as to offend against justice and what among them was accepted as best. God was displeased at the change in the king and the others, and sent prophets to bear witness of what was being done and to stop their wickedness; but they had a strong love and a terrible desire for this. [...] But they also stoned Zechariah,[2] the son of the high priest Jehoiada, in the temple, because he had prophesied that they would endure a great punishment for their disobedience.
Greek Original:
Ἰώανος, βασιλεὺς Ἱεροσολύμων, μετὰ θάνατον Ἰωδαὲ τοῦ ἀρχιερέως προέδωκε τὴν ἐπιμέλειαν τὴν πρὸς τὸν θεόν. συνδιεφθάρησαν δὲ αὐτῷ καὶ οἱ τοῦ πλήθους πρωτεύοντες ὥστε πλημμελεῖν εἰς τὰ δίκαια καὶ νενομισμένα παρ' αὐτοῖς ἄριστα εἶναι. δυσχεράνας δὲ ὁ θεὸς ἐπὶ τῇ μεταβολῇ τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ τῶν ἄλλων πέμπει τοὺς προφήτας διαμαρτυρησομένους τε τὰ πραττόμενα καὶ παύσοντας τῆς πονηρίας αὐτούς. οἱ δὲ ἰσχυρὸν ἔρωτα καὶ δεινὴν ἐπιθυμίαν ἄρα ταύτης εἶχον. ἀλλὰ καὶ Ζαχαρίαν, υἱὸν τοῦ ἀρχιερέως Ἰωδαέ, κατέλευσαν λίθοις ἐν τῷ ἱερῷ, διότι προεφήτευσεν, αὐτοὺς τιμωρίαν μεγάλην ὑφέξειν μὴ πειθομένους.
Josephus, Jewish Antiquities 9.166-9 (web address 1). Josephus gives the king's name as Ἰώασος ; in the Septuagint it is Ιωας . Perhaps the Suda (or its source) has confused the name with Ἰωάννης "John."
cf. 2 Chronicles 24.17-22.
[1] iota 474.
