John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

Howbeit, there was no reckoning made with them of the money that was delivered into their hand,.... No account was kept between the high priest, and the king's scribe who delivered the money and the overseers of the workmen, who received it from them the latter were not called to any account by the former, nor any audit made of their accounts:

because they dealt faithfully: they were persons of such known honour and integrity, that their fidelity was not in the least called in question, but were trusted without examining their accounts, and how they disposed of the money committed to them, see 2 Kings 12:15.

Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers

(7) Howbeit there was.—Only let there be. The words of 2 Kings 22:6-7 are part of the royal mandate.

That was delivered . . . they dealt.—That is given . . . they deal. In 2 Kings 12:14; 2 Kings 12:16 the same construction is used in a different sense. (See the Notes there.)
