Description: This image depicts King Joash of Judah preparing to shoot an arrow out the window as instructed by the prophet Elisha. In the top-right corner a man comes back to life after being buried with Elisha, as conspirators kill Joash in his bed. In the bottom-right corner Zechariah is sent by the Lord to testify against King Joash and Judah for turning from the house of the Lord; instead of listening to Zechariah, Joash orders his stoning in the Temple court, while Joash leads his troops in breaking though the walls of Jerusalem and looting the city. In the bottom-left corner a man of God instructs King Amaziah of Judah to send home the Israelite mercenaries he has hired to help him wage war. In the top-left corner Joash plunders the treasure in the house of God in Jerusalem. To the left is the thornbush and the cedar of Lebanon.
