Then, the Spirit of God clothed Zechariah, the son of Jehoiada, the priest, and he stood above the people and said to them, “Thus says God: ‘Why do you break the commandments of the Lord so that you cannot prosper?  Because you have forsaken the Lord, He has forsaken you.'”  But, they conspired against him and, by command of the king, they stoned him with stones in the court of the house of the Lord.  Thus, Joash, the king, did not remember the kindness that Jehoiada, Zechariah’s father, had shown him, but killed his son.  And, when he was dying, he said, “May the Lord see and avenge!”  (2 Chronicles 24.20-22)
