An army from Syria attacks Judah and it wins the fight
23 At the end of that year, an army from Syria attacked Joash. They attacked Judah and Jerusalem. They killed all the people's leaders and they sent many valuable things to their king in Damascus. 24 The army from Syria was only a few soldiers. But the Lord helped them to win the fight against Judah's much bigger army. That was because they had stopped worshipping the Lord, the God of their ancestors. So God used those soldiers to punish Joash.
