8 At the king's command, a chest was made and placed outside, at the gate of the temple of the Lord.
8 And at the king's commandment they made a chest, and set it without at the gate of the house of the Lord.
8 So the king commanded, and they made a chest and set it outside the gate of the house of the Lord.
8 Following the king's orders, they made a chest and placed it at the entrance to The Temple of God.
8 Then at the king's command they made a chest, and set it outside at the gate of the house of the Lord.
8 So now the king ordered a chest to be made and set outside the gate leading to the Temple of the Lord .
Matthew Henry's Commentary on 2 Chronicles 24:8
Commentary on 2 Chronicles 24:1-14
(Read 2 Chronicles 24:1-14)
Joash is more zealous about the repair of the temple than Jehoiada himself. It is easier to build temples, than to be temples to God. But the repairing of places for public worship is a good work, which all should promote. And many a good work would be done that now lies undone, if active men would put it forward.
