4 ¶ And Iehoash said to the priests, All the money of the dedicated things that is brought into the house of the Lord, euen the money of euery one that passeth the account, the money that euery man is set at, and all the money that commeth into any mans heart, to bring into the house of the Lord,
7 Then king Iehoash called for Iehoiada the priest, and the other priests, and saide vnto them, Why repaire ye not the breaches of the house? now therefore receiue no more money of your acquaintance, but deliuer it for the breaches of the house.
9 But Iehoiada the priest tooke a chest, and bored a hole in the lid of it, and set it beside the Altar, on the right side, as one commeth into the house of the Lord, and the priests that kept the doore, put therein all the money that was brought into the house of the Lord.
10 And it was so when they saw that there was much money in the chest, that the kings scribe, and the high priest came vp, and they put vp in bags and told the money that was found in the house of the Lord.
11 And they gaue the money, being told, into the handes of them that did the worke, that had the ouersight of the house of the Lord: and they laid it out to the carpenters and builders, that wrought vpon the house of the Lord,
13 Howbeit, there were not made for the house of the Lord, bowles of siluer, snuffers, basons, trumpets, any vessels of gold, or vessels of siluer, of the money that was brought into the house of the Lord:
18 And Iehoash king of Iudah tooke all the hallowed things that Iehoshaphat, and Iehoram, and Ahaziah his fathers, kings of Iudah had dedicate, and his owne hallowed things, and all the gold that was found in the treasures of the house of the Lord, and in the kings house, and sent it to Hazael king of Syria, and hee went away from Ierusalem.
21 For Iozachar the sonne of Shimeath, and Iehozabad the sonne of Shomer, his seruants, smote him, and he died; and they buried him with his fathers in the citie of Dauid, and Amaziah his sonne reigned in his stead.

It is my opinion that GOD didn't want any part of money that had been used in an unrighteous way. Blood money as we call it today.
