2 Chronicles 30:17-20

Context
30:17 Because many in the assembly had not consecrated themselves, the Levites slaughtered 1  the Passover lambs of all who were ceremonially unclean and could not consecrate their sacrifice to the Lord. 2  30:18 The majority of the many people from Ephraim, Manasseh, Issachar, and Zebulun were ceremonially unclean, yet they ate the Passover in violation of what is prescribed in the law. 3  For Hezekiah prayed for them, saying: “May the Lord, who is good, forgive 4  30:19 everyone who has determined to follow God, 5  the Lord God of his ancestors, even if he is not ceremonially clean according to the standards of the temple.” 6  30:20 The Lord responded favorably 7  to Hezekiah and forgave 8  the people.
