2 Chronicles 34:1-10 (MDR)
"Josiah was eight years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem thirty-one years. He did what was right in the eyes of the Lord and followed the ways of his father David, not turning aside to the right or to the left. In the eighth year (age 16) of his reign, while he was still young, he began to seek the God of his father David. In his twelfth year (age 20) he began to purge Judah and Jerusalem of high places, Asherah poles and idols. Under his direction the altars of the Baals were torn down; he cut to pieces the incense altars that were above them, and smashed the Asherah poles and the idols. These he broke to pieces and scattered over the graves of those who had sacrificed to them. He burned the bones of the priests on their altars, and so he purged Judah and Jerusalem. In the eighteenth year (age 26) of Josiah’s reign, to purify the land and the temple, he sent leaders to audit the financials with regards to rennovation the House of God. The Pastors had collected money from all over Israel in order to pay the workers for repairing the Temple."
