2 Kings 11

“Then Jehoiada made a covenant between the Lord and the king and the people that they would be the Lord’s people. He also made a covenant between the king and the people.” v.17
Have you ever needed a redo, or a start over? The Israelites did! Jehoiada the priest anointed a new king, who happened to have been in hiding and was only seven years old. This covenant was, in fact, a recommitment to a very old covenant – the one set up in the book of Deuteronomy for the righteous rule of the nation. It was meant to function as a constitution for the people. This covenant, however, had been virtually ignored for over 100 years. Unfortunately, after Jehoiada’s death, the reforms were discontinued.
