2 Chronicles 23:17

14. Then Iehoiada the Priest brought out the captaines of hundreds, that were set ouer the host, and said vnto them, Haue her foorth of the ranges: and who so followeth her, let him bee slaine with the sword. For the Priest said; Slay her not in the house of the Lord. 15. So they layd handes on her, and when shee was come to the entring of the horse gate, by the kings house, they slew her there. 16. ¶ And Iehoiada made a couenant betweene him, and betweene all the people, and betweene the king, that they should be the Lords people. 17. Then all the people went to the house of Baal, and brake it downe, and brake his altars and his images in pieces, and slew Mattan the priest of Baal before the altars. 18. Also Iehoiada appointed the offices of the house of the Lord by the hand of the Priests the Leuites, whom Dauid had distributed in the house of the Lord, to offer the burnt offrings of the Lord, as it is written in the Law of Moses, with reioycing and with singing, as it was ordeined by Dauid. 19. And he set the porters at the gates of the house of the Lord, that none which was vncleane in any thing, should enter in. 20. And hee tooke the captaines of hundreds, and the nobles, and the gouernours of the people, and all the people of the land, and brought downe the king from the house of the Lord: and they came through the high gate into the kings house, and set the king vpon the throne of the kingdome.
