2 Kings 23:22

Context
23:22 He issued this edict because 1  a Passover like this had not been observed since the days of the judges; it was neglected for the entire period of the kings of Israel and Judah. 2 

1 tn The Hebrew text has simply “because.” The translation attempts to reflect more clearly the logical connection between the king’s order and the narrator’s observation. Another option is to interpret כִּי (ki) as asseverative and translate, “indeed.”

2 tn Heb “because there had not been observed [one] like this Passover from the days of the judges who judged Israel and all the days of the kings of Israel and the kings of Judah.”
