2 Chronicles 30:5-6

30:5 So they sent an edict 1  throughout Israel from Beer Sheba to Dan, summoning the people 2  to come and observe a Passover for the Lord God of Israel in Jerusalem, for they had not observed it on a nationwide scale as prescribed in the law. 3  30:6 Messengers 4  delivered the letters from the king and his officials throughout Israel and Judah.

This royal edict read: 5  “O Israelites, return to the Lord God of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, so he may return 6  to you who have been spared from the kings of Assyria. 7
