Then the Spirit of God came on Zechariah the son of Jehoiada the priest; and he stood above the people and said to them, "Thus God has said, `Why do you transgress the commandments of the LORD and do not prosper? Because you have forsaken the LORD, He has also forsaken you.' " (2 Chronicles 24:20)

So they conspired against him and at the command of the king they stoned him to death in the court of the house of the LORD. (2 Chronicles 24:21)

Thus Joash the king did not remember the kindness which his father Jehoiada had shown him, but he murdered his son. And as he died he said, "May the LORD see and avenge!" (2 Chronicles 24:22)
