2 Kings 23:23-24

Context
23:23 But in the eighteenth year of King Josiah’s reign, such a Passover of the Lord was observed in Jerusalem.

23:24 Josiah also got rid of 1  the ritual pits used to conjure up spirits, 2  the magicians, personal idols, disgusting images, 3  and all the detestable idols that had appeared in the land of Judah and in Jerusalem. In this way he carried out the terms of the law 4  recorded on the scroll that Hilkiah the priest had discovered in the Lord’s temple.

1 tn Here בִּעֵר (bier) is not the well attested verb “burn,” but the less common homonym meaning “devastate, sweep away, remove.” See HALOT 146 s.v. בער.

2 sn See the note at 2 Kgs 21:6.

3 sn See the note at 1 Kgs 15:12.

4 tn Heb “carrying out the words of the law.”
