2 Chronicles 30

And Hezekiah
<03169>
sent
<07971> (8799)
to all Israel
<03478>
and Judah
<03063>_,
and wrote
<03789> (8804)
letters
<0107>
also to Ephraim
<0669>
and Manasseh
<04519>_,
that they should come
<0935> (8800)
to the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>
at Jerusalem
<03389>_,
to keep
<06213> (8800)
the passover
<06453>
unto the LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>_.
For the king
<04428>
had taken counsel
<03289> (8735)_,
and his princes
<08269>_,
and all the congregation
<06951>
in Jerusalem
<03389>_,
to keep
<06213> (8800)
the passover
<06453>
in the second
<08145>
month
<02320>_.
For they could
<03201> (8804)
not keep
<06213> (8800)
it at that time
<06256>_,
because the priests
<03548>
had not sanctified
<06942> (8694)
themselves sufficiently
<04078> (8676) <01767>_,
neither had the people
<05971>
gathered themselves together
<0622> (8738)
to Jerusalem
<03389>_.
And the thing
<01697>
pleased
<03474> (8799) <05869>
the king
<04428>
and all the congregation
<06951>_.
{pleased...: Heb. was right in the eyes of the king}
So they established
<05975> (8686)
a decree
<01697>
to make proclamation
<05674> (8687) <06963>
throughout all Israel
<03478>_,
from Beersheba
<0884>
even to Dan
<01835>_,
that they should come
<0935> (8800)
to keep
<06213> (8800)
the passover
<06453>
unto the LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>
at Jerusalem
<03389>_:
for they had not done
<06213> (8804)
[it] of a long
<07230>
[time in such sort] as it was written
<03789> (8803)_.
So the posts
<07323> (8801)
went
<03212> (8799)
with the letters
<0107>
from
<03027>
the king
<04428>
and his princes
<08269>
throughout all Israel
<03478>
and Judah
<03063>_,
and according to the commandment
<04687>
of the king
<04428>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Ye children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>_,
turn again
<07725> (8798)
unto the LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>
of Abraham
<085>_,
Isaac
<03327>_,
and Israel
<03478>_,
and he will return
<07725> (8799)
to the remnant
<07604> (8737)
of you, that are escaped
<06413>
out of the hand
<03709>
of the kings
<04428>
of Assyria
<0804>_.
{from: Heb. from the hand}
And be not ye like your fathers
<01>_,
and like your brethren
<0251>_,
which trespassed
<04603> (8804)
against the LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>
of their fathers
<01>_,
[who] therefore gave them up
<05414> (8799)
to desolation
<08047>_,
as ye see
<07200> (8802)_.
Now be ye not stiffnecked
<07185> (8686) <06203>_,
as your fathers
<01>
[were, but] yield
<05414> (8798)
yourselves
<03027>
unto the LORD
<03068>_,
and enter
<0935> (8798)
into his sanctuary
<04720>_,
which he hath sanctified
<06942> (8689)
for ever
<05769>_:
and serve
<05647> (8798)
the LORD
<03068>
your God
<0430>_,
that the fierceness
<02740>
of his wrath
<0639>
may turn away
<07725> (8799)
from you. {be ye...: Heb. harden not your necks} {yield...: Heb. give the hand}
For if ye turn again
<07725> (8800)
unto the LORD
<03068>_,
your brethren
<0251>
and your children
<01121>
[shall find] compassion
<07356>
before
<06440>
them that lead them captive
<07617> (8802)_,
so that they shall come again
<07725> (8800)
into this land
<0776>_:
for the LORD
<03068>
your God
<0430>
[is] gracious
<02587>
and merciful
<07349>_,
and will not turn away
<05493> (8686)
[his] face
<06440>
from you, if ye return
<07725> (8799)
unto him.
So the posts
<07323> (8801)
passed
<05674> (8802)
from city
<05892>
to city
<05892>
through the country
<0776>
of Ephraim
<0669>
and Manasseh
<04519>
even unto Zebulun
<02074>_:
but they laughed them to scorn
<07832> (8688)_,
and mocked
<03932> (8688)
them.
Nevertheless divers
<0582>
of Asher
<0836>
and Manasseh
<04519>
and of Zebulun
<02074>
humbled
<03665> (8738)
themselves, and came
<0935> (8799)
to Jerusalem
<03389>_.
Also in Judah
<03063>
the hand
<03027>
of God
<0430>
was to give
<05414> (8800)
them one
<0259>
heart
<03820>
to do
<06213> (8800)
the commandment
<04687>
of the king
<04428>
and of the princes
<08269>_,
by the word
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>_.
And there assembled
<0622> (8735)
at Jerusalem
<03389>
much
<07227>
people
<05971>
to keep
<06213> (8800)
the feast
<02282>
of unleavened bread
<04682>
in the second
<08145>
month
<02320>_,
a very
<03966>
great
<07230>
congregation
<06951>_.
And they arose
<06965> (8799)
and took away
<05493> (8686)
the altars
<04196>
that [were] in Jerusalem
<03389>_,
and all the altars for incense
<06999>
took they away
<05493> (8689)_,
and cast
<07993> (8686)
[them] into the brook
<05158>
Kidron
<06939>_.
Then they killed
<07819> (8799)
the passover
<06453>
on the fourteenth
<0702> <06240>
[day] of the second
<08145>
month
<02320>_:
and the priests
<03548>
and the Levites
<03881>
were ashamed
<03637> (8738)_,
and sanctified
<06942> (8691)
themselves, and brought in
<0935> (8686)
the burnt offerings
<05930>
into the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_.
And they stood
<05975> (8799)
in their place
<05977>
after their manner
<04941>_,
according to the law
<08451>
of Moses
<04872>
the man
<0376>
of God
<0430>_:
the priests
<03548>
sprinkled
<02236> (8802)
the blood
<01818>_,
[which they received] of the hand
<03027>
of the Levites
<03881>_.
{their place: Heb. their standing}
For [there were] many
<07227>
in the congregation
<06951>
that were not sanctified
<06942> (8694)_:
therefore the Levites
<03881>
had the charge of the killing
<07821>
of the passovers
<06453>
for every one [that was] not clean
<02889>_,
to sanctify
<06942> (8687)
[them] unto the LORD
<03068>_.
For a multitude
<04768>
of the people
<05971>_,
[even] many
<07227>
of Ephraim
<0669>_,
and Manasseh
<04519>_,
Issachar
<03485>_,
and Zebulun
<02074>_,
had not
<03808>
cleansed
<02891> (8694)
themselves, yet did they eat
<0398> (8804)
the passover
<06453>
otherwise than it was written
<03789> (8803)_.
But Hezekiah
<03169>
prayed
<06419> (8694)
for them, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
The good
<02896>
LORD
<03068>
pardon
<03722> (8762)
every one
[That] prepareth
<03559> (8689)
his heart
<03824>
to seek
<01875> (8800)
God
<0430>_,
the LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>
of his fathers
<01>_,
though [he be] not [cleansed] according to the purification
<02893>
of the sanctuary
<06944>_.
And the LORD
<03068>
hearkened
<08085> (8799)
to Hezekiah
<03169>_,
and healed
<07495> (8799)
the people
<05971>_.
And the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>
that were present
<04672> (8737)
at Jerusalem
<03389>
kept
<06213> (8799)
the feast
<02282>
of unleavened bread
<04682>
seven
<07651>
days
<03117>
with great
<01419>
gladness
<08057>_:
and the Levites
<03881>
and the priests
<03548>
praised
<01984> (8764)
the LORD
<03068>
day
<03117>
by day
<03117>_,
[singing] with loud
<05797>
instruments
<03627>
unto the LORD
<03068>_.
{present: Heb. found} {loud...: Heb. instruments of strength}
And Hezekiah
<03169>
spake
<01696> (8762)
comfortably
<03820>
unto all the Levites
<03881>
that taught
<07919> (8688)
the good
<02896>
knowledge
<07922>
of the LORD
<03068>_:
and they did eat
<0398> (8799)
throughout the feast
<04150>
seven
<07651>
days
<03117>_,
offering
<02076> (8764)
peace
<08002>
offerings
<02077>_,
and making confession
<03034> (8693)
to the LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>
of their fathers
<01>_.
{comfortably...: Heb. to the heart of all}
And the whole assembly
<06951>
took counsel
<03289> (8735)
to keep
<06213> (8800)
other
<0312>
seven
<07651>
days
<03117>_:
and they kept
<06213> (8799)
[other] seven
<07651>
days
<03117>
with gladness
<08057>_.
For Hezekiah
<02396>
king
<04428>
of Judah
<03063>
did give
<07311> (8689)
to the congregation
<06951>
a thousand
<0505>
bullocks
<06499>
and seven
<07651>
thousand
<0505>
sheep
<06629>_;
and the princes
<08269>
gave
<07311> (8689)
to the congregation
<06951>
a thousand
<0505>
bullocks
<06499>
and ten
<06235>
thousand
<0505>
sheep
<06629>_:
and a great number
<07230>
of priests
<03548>
sanctified
<06942> (8691)
themselves. {did give: Heb. lifted up, or, offered} {gave: Heb. lifted up, or, offered}
And all the congregation
<06951>
of Judah
<03063>_,
with the priests
<03548>
and the Levites
<03881>_,
and all the congregation
<06951>
that came out
<0935> (8802)
of Israel
<03478>_,
and the strangers
<01616>
that came out
<0935> (8802)
of the land
<0776>
of Israel
<03478>_,
and that dwelt
<03427> (8802)
in Judah
<03063>_,
rejoiced
<08055> (8799)_.
So there was great
<01419>
joy
<08057>
in Jerusalem
<03389>_:
for since the time
<03117>
of Solomon
<08010>
the son
<01121>
of David
<01732>
king
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>
[there was] not the like in Jerusalem
<03389>_.
Then the priests
<03548>
the Levites
<03881>
arose
<06965> (8799)
and blessed
<01288> (8762)
the people
<05971>_:
and their voice
<06963>
was heard
<08085> (8735)_,
and their prayer
<08605>
came
<0935> (8799)
[up] to his holy
<06944>
dwelling place
<04583>_,
[even] unto heaven
<08064>_.
{his holy...: Heb. the habitation of his holiness}
