Joash
Given by the Lord
Strong's #H3101

At least six Old Testament individuals are named Joash. The most important of these was Joash who was the eighth ruler over the Kingdom of Judah. His reign started at the tender age of seven, the youngest known monarch to take the throne of either Israel or Judah. His rule ran from 835 to 796 B.C.

The Joash found in 1Chronicles 7:8 and 27:28 comes from the Hebrew word which means "Jehovah hastens" (Strong's #3135). The King James Old Testament erroneous has the name Jehoash in 2Kings 11:21 and 12:1 - 18. The correct name in these places should be Joash.
