Josiah Repairs the Temple

2 Kings 22

3 In the eighteenth year of King Josiah, he sent Shaphan son of Azaliah, the son of Meshullam, the scribe, to the Lord's house, saying, 4 Go up to Hilkiah the high priest, that he may count the money brought into the house of the Lord, which the keepers of the door have gathered from the people. 5 And let them deliver it into the hands of the workmen who have oversight of the Lord's house, to give to the laborers engaged in the repairing of the Lord's house-- 6 That is, to the carpenters, builders, and masons--and to buy timber and hewn stone to repair the house. 7 However, there was no accounting required of them for the money delivered into their hands, because they dealt faithfully.
