2 Chronicles 35

Moreover Josiah
<02977>
kept
<06213> (8799)
a passover
<06453>
unto the LORD
<03068>
in Jerusalem
<03389>_:
and they killed
<07819> (8799)
the passover
<06453>
on the fourteenth
<0702> <06240>
[day] of the first
<07223>
month
<02320>_.
And he set
<05975> (8686)
the priests
<03548>
in their charges
<04931>_,
and encouraged
<02388> (8762)
them to the service
<05656>
of the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
And said
<0559> (8799)
unto the Levites
<03881>
that taught
<0995> (8688) (8675) <04000>
all Israel
<03478>_,
which were holy
<06918>
unto the LORD
<03068>_,
Put
<05414> (8798)
the holy
<06944>
ark
<0727>
in the house
<01004>
which Solomon
<08010>
the son
<01121>
of David
<01732>
king
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>
did build
<01129> (8804)_;
[it shall] not [be] a burden
<04853>
upon [your] shoulders
<03802>_:
serve
<05647> (8798)
now the LORD
<03068>
your God
<0430>_,
and his people
<05971>
Israel
<03478>_,
And prepare
<03559> (8685) (8675) <03559> (8734)
[yourselves] by the houses
<01004>
of your fathers
<01>_,
after your courses
<04256>_,
according to the writing
<03791>
of David
<01732>
king
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>_,
and according to the writing
<04385>
of Solomon
<08010>
his son
<01121>_.
And stand in
<05975> (8798)
the holy
<06944>
[place] according to the divisions
<06391>
of the families
<01004>
of the fathers
<01>
of your brethren
<0251>
the people
<01121> <05971>_,
and [after] the division
<02515>
of the families
<01> <01004>
of the Levites
<03881>_.
{the families of the fathers: Heb. the house of the fathers} {the people: Heb. the sons of the people}
So kill
<07819> (8798)
the passover
<06453>_,
and sanctify
<06942> (8690)
yourselves, and prepare
<03559> (8685)
your brethren
<0251>_,
that [they] may do
<06213> (8800)
according to the word
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>
by the hand
<03027>
of Moses
<04872>_.
And Josiah
<02977>
gave
<07311> (8686)
to the people
<01121> <05971>_,
of the flock
<06629>_,
lambs
<03532>
and kids
<01121> <05795>_,
all for the passover offerings
<06453>_,
for all that were present
<04672> (8737)_,
to the number
<04557>
of thirty
<07970>
thousand
<0505>_,
and three
<07969>
thousand
<0505>
bullocks
<01241>_:
these [were] of the king's
<04428>
substance
<07399>_.
{gave: Heb. offered}
And his princes
<08269>
gave
<07311> (8689)
willingly
<05071>
unto the people
<05971>_,
to the priests
<03548>_,
and to the Levites
<03881>_:
Hilkiah
<02518>
and Zechariah
<02148>
and Jehiel
<03171>_,
rulers
<05057>
of the house
<01004>
of God
<0430>_,
gave
<05414> (8804)
unto the priests
<03548>
for the passover offerings
<06453>
two thousand
<0505>
and six
<08337>
hundred
<03967>
[small cattle], and three
<07969>
hundred
<03967>
oxen
<01241>_.
{gave willingly: Heb. offered, etc}
Conaniah
<03562>
also, and Shemaiah
<08098>
and Nethaneel
<05417>_,
his brethren
<0251>_,
and Hashabiah
<02811>
and Jeiel
<03273>
and Jozabad
<03107>_,
chief
<08269>
of the Levites
<03881>_,
gave
<07311> (8689)
unto the Levites
<03881>
for passover offerings
<06453>
five
<02568>
thousand
<0505>
[small cattle], and five
<02568>
hundred
<03967>
oxen
<01241>_.
{gave: Heb. offered}
So the service
<05656>
was prepared
<03559> (8735)_,
and the priests
<03548>
stood
<05975> (8799)
in their place
<05977>_,
and the Levites
<03881>
in their courses
<04256>_,
according to the king's
<04428>
commandment
<04687>_.
And they killed
<07819> (8799)
the passover
<06453>_,
and the priests
<03548>
sprinkled
<02236> (8799)
[the blood] from their hands
<03027>_,
and the Levites
<03881>
flayed
<06584> (8688)
[them].
And they removed
<05493> (8686)
the burnt offerings
<05930>_,
that they might give
<05414> (8800)
according to the divisions
<04653>
of the families
<01> <01004>
of the people
<01121> <05971>_,
to offer
<07126> (8687)
unto the LORD
<03068>_,
as [it is] written
<03789> (8803)
in the book
<05612>
of Moses
<04872>_.
And so [did they] with the oxen
<01241>_.
And they roasted
<01310> (8762)
the passover
<06453>
with fire
<0784>
according to the ordinance
<04941>_:
but the [other] holy
<06944>
[offerings] sod
<01310> (8765)
they in pots
<05518>_,
and in caldrons
<01731>_,
and in pans
<06745>_,
and divided [them] speedily
<07323> (8686)
among all the people
<01121> <05971>_.
{divided...: Heb. made them run}
And afterward
<0310>
they made ready
<03559> (8689)
for themselves, and for the priests
<03548>_:
because the priests
<03548>
the sons
<01121>
of Aaron
<0175>
[were busied] in offering
<05927> (8687)
of burnt offerings
<05930>
and the fat
<02459>
until night
<03915>_;
therefore the Levites
<03881>
prepared
<03559> (8689)
for themselves, and for the priests
<03548>
the sons
<01121>
of Aaron
<0175>_.
And the singers
<07891> (8789)
the sons
<01121>
of Asaph
<0623>
[were] in their place
<04612>_,
according to the commandment
<04687>
of David
<01732>_,
and Asaph
<0623>_,
and Heman
<01968>_,
and Jeduthun
<03038>
the king's
<04428>
seer
<02374>_;
and the porters
<07778>
[waited] at every gate
<08179>_;
they might not depart
<05493> (8800)
from their service
<05656>_;
for their brethren
<0251>
the Levites
<03881>
prepared
<03559> (8689)
for them. {place: Heb. station}
So all the service
<05656>
of the LORD
<03068>
was prepared
<03559> (8735)
the same day
<03117>_,
to keep
<06213> (8800)
the passover
<06453>_,
and to offer
<05927> (8687)
burnt offerings
<05930>
upon the altar
<04196>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
according to the commandment
<04687>
of king
<04428>
Josiah
<02977>_.
And the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>
that were present
<04672> (8737)
kept
<06213> (8799)
the passover
<06453>
at that time
<06256>_,
and the feast
<02282>
of unleavened bread
<04682>
seven
<07651>
days
<03117>_.
{present: Heb. found}
And there was no passover
<06453>
like
<03644>
to that kept
<06213> (8738)
in Israel
<03478>
from the days
<03117>
of Samuel
<08050>
the prophet
<05030>_;
neither did
<06213> (8804)
all the kings
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>
keep
<06213> (8804)
such a passover
<06453>
as Josiah
<02977>
kept
<06213> (8804)_,
and the priests
<03548>_,
and the Levites
<03881>_,
and all Judah
<03063>
and Israel
<03478>
that were present
<04672> (8737)_,
and the inhabitants
<03427> (8802)
of Jerusalem
<03389>_.
{present: Heb. found}
In the eighteenth
<08083> <06240>
year
<08141>
of the reign
<04438>
of Josiah
<02977>
was this passover
<06453>
kept
<06213> (8738)_.
After
<0310>
all this, when Josiah
<02977>
had prepared
<03559> (8689)
the temple
<01004>_,
Necho
<05224>
king
<04428>
of Egypt
<04714>
came up
<05927> (8804)
to fight
<03898> (8736)
against Carchemish
<03751>
by Euphrates
<06578>_:
and Josiah
<02977>
went out
<03318> (8799)
against
<07125> (8800)
him. {temple: Heb. house}
But he sent
<07971> (8799)
ambassadors
<04397>
to him, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
What have I to do with thee, thou king
<04428>
of Judah
<03063>_?
[I come] not against thee this day
<03117>_,
but against the house
<01004>
wherewith I have war
<04421>_:
for God
<0430>
commanded
<0559> (8804)
me to make haste
<0926> (8763)_:
forbear
<02308> (8798)
thee from [meddling with] God
<0430>_,
who [is] with me, that he destroy
<07843> (8686)
thee not. {the house...: Heb. the house of my war}
Nevertheless Josiah
<02977>
would not turn
<05437> (8689)
his face
<06440>
from him, but disguised
<02664> (8694)
himself, that he might fight
<03898> (8736)
with him, and hearkened
<08085> (8804)
not unto the words
<01697>
of Necho
<05224>
from the mouth
<06310>
of God
<0430>_,
and came
<0935> (8799)
to fight
<03898> (8736)
in the valley
<01237>
of Megiddo
<04023>_.
And the archers
<03384> (8802)
shot
<03384> (8686)
at king
<04428>
Josiah
<02977>_;
and the king
<04428>
said
<0559> (8799)
to his servants
<05650>_,
Have me away
<05674> (8685)_;
for I am sore
<03966>
wounded
<02470> (8717)_.
{wounded: Heb. made sick}
His servants
<05650>
therefore took
<05674> (8686)
him out of that chariot
<04818>_,
and put
<07392> (8686)
him in the second
<04932>
chariot
<07393>
that he had; and they brought
<03212> (8686)
him to Jerusalem
<03389>_,
and he died
<04191> (8799)_,
and was buried
<06912> (8735)
in [one of] the sepulchres
<06913>
of his fathers
<01>_.
And all Judah
<03063>
and Jerusalem
<03389>
mourned
<056> (8693)
for Josiah
<02977>_.
{in one...: or, among the sepulchres}
And Jeremiah
<03414>
lamented
<06969> (8787)
for Josiah
<02977>_:
and all the singing men
<07891> (8802)
and the singing women
<07891> (8802)
spake
<0559> (8799)
of Josiah
<02977>
in their lamentations
<07015>
to this day
<03117>_,
and made
<05414> (8799)
them an ordinance
<02706>
in Israel
<03478>_:
and, behold, they [are] written
<03789> (8803)
in the lamentations
<07015>_.
Now the rest
<03499>
of the acts
<01697>
of Josiah
<02977>_,
and his goodness
<02617>_,
according to [that which was] written
<03789> (8803)
in the law
<08451>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
{goodness: Heb. kindnesses}
And his deeds
<01697>_,
first
<07223>
and last
<0314>_,
behold, they [are] written
<03789> (8803)
in the book
<05612>
of the kings
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>
and Judah
<03063>_.
