2 Chronicles 29

Hezekiah
<03169>
began to reign
<04427> (8804)
[when he was] five
<02568>
and twenty
<06242>
years
<08141>
old
<01121>_,
and he reigned
<04427> (8804)
nine
<08672>
and twenty
<06242>
years
<08141>
in Jerusalem
<03389>_.
And his mother's
<0517>
name
<08034>
[was] Abijah
<029>_,
the daughter
<01323>
of Zechariah
<02148>_.
And he did
<06213> (8799)
[that which was] right
<03477>
in the sight
<05869>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
according to all that David
<01732>
his father
<01>
had done
<06213> (8804)_.
He in the first
<07223>
year
<08141>
of his reign
<04427> (8800)_,
in the first
<07223>
month
<02320>_,
opened
<06605> (8804)
the doors
<01817>
of the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
and repaired
<02388> (8762)
them.
And he brought in
<0935> (8686)
the priests
<03548>
and the Levites
<03881>_,
and gathered them together
<0622> (8799)
into the east
<04217>
street
<07339>_,
And said
<0559> (8799)
unto them, Hear
<08085> (8798)
me, ye Levites
<03881>_,
sanctify
<06942> (8690)
now yourselves, and sanctify
<06942> (8761)
the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>
of your fathers
<01>_,
and carry forth
<03318> (8685)
the filthiness
<05079>
out of the holy
<06944>
[place].
For our fathers
<01>
have trespassed
<04603> (8804)_,
and done
<06213> (8804)
[that which was] evil
<07451>
in the eyes
<05869>
of the LORD
<03068>
our God
<0430>_,
and have forsaken
<05800> (8799)
him, and have turned away
<05437> (8686)
their faces
<06440>
from the habitation
<04908>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
and turned
<05414> (8799)
[their] backs
<06203>_.
{turned their...: Heb. given the neck}
Also they have shut up
<05462> (8804)
the doors
<01817>
of the porch
<0197>_,
and put out
<03518> (8762)
the lamps
<05216>_,
and have not burned
<06999> (8689)
incense
<07004>
nor offered
<05927> (8689)
burnt offerings
<05930>
in the holy
<06944>
[place] unto the God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>_.
Wherefore the wrath
<07110>
of the LORD
<03068>
was upon Judah
<03063>
and Jerusalem
<03389>_,
and he hath delivered
<05414> (8799)
them to trouble
<02189> (8675) <02113>_,
to astonishment
<08047>_,
and to hissing
<08322>_,
as ye see
<07200> (8802)
with your eyes
<05869>_.
{trouble: Heb. commotion}
For, lo, our fathers
<01>
have fallen
<05307> (8804)
by the sword
<02719>_,
and our sons
<01121>
and our daughters
<01323>
and our wives
<0802>
[are] in captivity
<07628>
for this.
Now [it is] in mine heart
<03824>
to make
<03772> (8800)
a covenant
<01285>
with the LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>_,
that his fierce
<02740>
wrath
<0639>
may turn away
<07725> (8799)
from us.
My sons
<01121>_,
be not now negligent
<07952> (8735)_:
for the LORD
<03068>
hath chosen
<0977> (8804)
you to stand
<05975> (8800)
before
<06440>
him, to serve
<08334> (8763)
him, and that ye should minister
<08334> (8764)
unto him, and burn incense
<06999> (8688)_.
{be not...: or, be not now deceived} {burn...: or, offer sacrifice}
Then the Levites
<03881>
arose
<06965> (8799)_,
Mahath
<04287>
the son
<01121>
of Amasai
<06022>_,
and Joel
<03100>
the son
<01121>
of Azariah
<05838>_,
of the sons
<01121>
of the Kohathites
<06956>_:
and of the sons
<01121>
of Merari
<04847>_,
Kish
<07027>
the son
<01121>
of Abdi
<05660>_,
and Azariah
<05838>
the son
<01121>
of Jehalelel
<03094>_:
and of the Gershonites
<01649>_;
Joah
<03098>
the son
<01121>
of Zimmah
<02155>_,
and Eden
<05731>
the son
<01121>
of Joah
<03098>_:
And of the sons
<01121>
of Elizaphan
<0469>_;
Shimri
<08113>_,
and Jeiel
<03273>_:
and of the sons
<01121>
of Asaph
<0623>_;
Zechariah
<02148>_,
and Mattaniah
<04983>_:
And of the sons
<01121>
of Heman
<01968>_;
Jehiel
<03171>_,
and Shimei
<08096>_:
and of the sons
<01121>
of Jeduthun
<03038>_;
Shemaiah
<08098>_,
and Uzziel
<05816>_.
And they gathered
<0622> (8799)
their brethren
<0251>_,
and sanctified
<06942> (8691)
themselves, and came
<0935> (8799)_,
according to the commandment
<04687>
of the king
<04428>_,
by the words
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
to cleanse
<02891> (8763)
the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_.
{by the words...: or, in the business of the LORD}
And the priests
<03548>
went
<0935> (8799)
into the inner part
<06441>
of the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
to cleanse
<02891> (8763)
[it], and brought out
<03318> (8686)
all the uncleanness
<02932>
that they found
<04672> (8804)
in the temple
<01964>
of the LORD
<03068>
into the court
<02691>
of the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_.
And the Levites
<03881>
took
<06901> (8762)
[it], to carry [it] out
<03318> (8687)
abroad
<02351>
into the brook
<05158>
Kidron
<06939>_.
Now they began
<02490> (8686)
on the first
<0259>
[day] of the first
<07223>
month
<02320>
to sanctify
<06942> (8763)_,
and on the eighth
<08083>
day
<03117>
of the month
<02320>
came
<0935> (8804)
they to the porch
<0197>
of the LORD
<03068>_:
so they sanctified
<06942> (8762)
the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>
in eight
<08083>
days
<03117>_;
and in the sixteenth
<08337> <06240>
day of the first
<07223>
month
<02320>
they made an end
<03615> (8765)_.
Then they went
<0935> (8799)
in
<06441>
to Hezekiah
<02396>
the king
<04428>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
We have cleansed
<02891> (8765)
all the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
and the altar
<04196>
of burnt offering
<05930>_,
with all the vessels
<03627>
thereof, and the shewbread
<04635>
table
<07979>_,
with all the vessels
<03627>
thereof.
Moreover all the vessels
<03627>_,
which king
<04428>
Ahaz
<0271>
in his reign
<04438>
did cast away
<02186> (8689)
in his transgression
<04604>_,
have we prepared
<03559> (8689)
and sanctified
<06942> (8689)_,
and, behold, they [are] before
<06440>
the altar
<04196>
of the LORD
<03068>_.
Then Hezekiah
<03169>
the king
<04428>
rose early
<07925> (8686)_,
and gathered
<0622> (8799)
the rulers
<08269>
of the city
<05892>_,
and went up
<05927> (8799)
to the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_.
And they brought
<0935> (8686)
seven
<07651>
bullocks
<06499>_,
and seven
<07651>
rams
<0352>_,
and seven
<07651>
lambs
<03532>_,
and seven
<07651>
he
<06842>
goats
<05795>_,
for a sin offering
<02403>
for the kingdom
<04467>_,
and for the sanctuary
<04720>_,
and for Judah
<03063>_.
And he commanded
<0559> (8799)
the priests
<03548>
the sons
<01121>
of Aaron
<0175>
to offer
<05927> (8687)
[them] on the altar
<04196>
of the LORD
<03068>_.
So they killed
<07819> (8799)
the bullocks
<01241>_,
and the priests
<03548>
received
<06901> (8762)
the blood
<01818>_,
and sprinkled
<02236> (8799)
[it] on the altar
<04196>_:
likewise, when they had killed
<07819> (8799)
the rams
<0352>_,
they sprinkled
<02236> (8799)
the blood
<01818>
upon the altar
<04196>_:
they killed
<07819> (8799)
also the lambs
<03532>_,
and they sprinkled
<02236> (8799)
the blood
<01818>
upon the altar
<04196>_.
And they brought forth
<05066> (8686)
the he goats
<08163>
[for] the sin offering
<02403>
before
<06440>
the king
<04428>
and the congregation
<06951>_;
and they laid
<05564> (8799)
their hands
<03027>
upon them: {forth: Heb. near}
And the priests
<03548>
killed
<07819> (8799)
them, and they made reconciliation
<02398> (8762)
with their blood
<01818>
upon the altar
<04196>_,
to make an atonement
<03722> (8763)
for all Israel
<03478>_:
for the king
<04428>
commanded
<0559> (8804)
[that] the burnt offering
<05930>
and the sin offering
<02403>
[should be made] for all Israel
<03478>_.
And he set
<05975> (8686)
the Levites
<03881>
in the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>
with cymbals
<04700>_,
with psalteries
<05035>_,
and with harps
<03658>_,
according to the commandment
<04687>
of David
<01732>_,
and of Gad
<01410>
the king's
<04428>
seer
<02374>_,
and Nathan
<05416>
the prophet
<05030>_:
for [so was] the commandment
<04687>
of
<03027>
the LORD
<03068>
by
<03027>
his prophets
<05030>_.
{commandment of the LORD: Heb. commandment by the hand of the LORD} {by: Heb. by the hand of}
And the Levites
<03881>
stood
<05975> (8799)
with the instruments
<03627>
of David
<01732>_,
and the priests
<03548>
with the trumpets
<02689>_.
And Hezekiah
<02396>
commanded
<0559> (8799)
to offer
<05927> (8687)
the burnt offering
<05930>
upon the altar
<04196>_.
And when
<06256>
the burnt offering
<05930>
began
<02490> (8689)_,
the song
<07892>
of the LORD
<03068>
began
<02490> (8689)
[also] with the trumpets
<02689>_,
and with the instruments
<03627>
[ordained] by
<03027>
David
<01732>
king
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>_.
{when: Heb. in the time} {the instruments: Heb. hands of instruments}
And all the congregation
<06951>
worshipped
<07812> (8693)_,
and the singers
<07892>
sang
<07891> (8789)_,
and the trumpeters
<02689>
sounded
<02690> (8688) (8675) <02690> (8764)_:
[and] all [this continued] until the burnt offering
<05930>
was finished
<03615> (8800)_.
{singers: Heb. song}
And when they had made an end
<03615> (8763)
of offering
<05927> (8687)_,
the king
<04428>
and all that were present
<04672> (8737)
with him bowed
<03766> (8804)
themselves, and worshipped
<07812> (8691)_.
{present: Heb. found}
Moreover Hezekiah
<03169>
the king
<04428>
and the princes
<08269>
commanded
<0559> (8799)
the Levites
<03881>
to sing praise
<01984> (8763)
unto the LORD
<03068>
with the words
<01697>
of David
<01732>_,
and of Asaph
<0623>
the seer
<02374>_.
And they sang praises
<01984> (8762)
with gladness
<08057>_,
and they bowed their heads
<06915> (8799)
and worshipped
<07812> (8691)_.
Then Hezekiah
<03169>
answered
<06030> (8799)
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Now ye have consecrated
<04390> (8765) <03027>
yourselves unto the LORD
<03068>_,
come near
<05066> (8798)
and bring
<0935> (8685)
sacrifices
<02077>
and thank offerings
<08426>
into the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_.
And the congregation
<06951>
brought in
<0935> (8686)
sacrifices
<02077>
and thank offerings
<08426>_;
and as many as were of a free
<05081>
heart
<03820>
burnt offerings
<05930>_.
{consecrated...: or, filled your hand}
And the number
<04557>
of the burnt offerings
<05930>_,
which the congregation
<06951>
brought
<0935> (8689)_,
was threescore and ten
<07657>
bullocks
<01241>_,
an hundred
<03967>
rams
<0352>_,
[and] two hundred
<03967>
lambs
<03532>_:
all these [were] for a burnt offering
<05930>
to the LORD
<03068>_.
And the consecrated things
<06944>
[were] six
<08337>
hundred
<03967>
oxen
<01241>
and three
<07969>
thousand
<0505>
sheep
<06629>_.
But the priests
<03548>
were too few
<04592>_,
so that they could
<03201> (8804)
not flay
<06584> (8687)
all the burnt offerings
<05930>_:
wherefore their brethren
<0251>
the Levites
<03881>
did help
<02388> (8762)
them, till the work
<04399>
was ended
<03615> (8800)_,
and until the [other] priests
<03548>
had sanctified
<06942> (8691)
themselves: for the Levites
<03881>
[were] more upright
<03477>
in heart
<03824>
to sanctify
<06942> (8692)
themselves than the priests
<03548>_.
{did help...: Heb. strengthened them}
And also the burnt offerings
<05930>
[were] in abundance
<07230>_,
with the fat
<02459>
of the peace offerings
<08002>_,
and the drink offerings
<05262>
for [every] burnt offering
<05930>_.
So the service
<05656>
of the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>
was set in order
<03559> (8735)_.
And Hezekiah
<03169>
rejoiced
<08055> (8799)_,
and all the people
<05971>_,
that God
<0430>
had prepared
<03559> (8689)
the people
<05971>_:
for the thing
<01697>
was [done] suddenly
<06597>_.
