And it came to pass in the eighteenth

<08141>
of king
<04428>
Josiah
<02977>_,
[that] the king
<04428>
sent
<07971> (8804)

<08227>
the son
<01121>
of Azaliah
<0683>_,

<04918>_,
the scribe
<05608> (8802)_,
to the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Go up
<05927> (8798)
to Hilkiah
<02518>
the high
<01419>
priest
<03548>_,
that he may sum
<08552> (8686)
the silver
<03701>
which is brought
<0935> (8716)
into the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
which the keepers
<08104> (8802)
of the door
<05592>
have gathered
<0622> (8804)
of the people
<05971>_:
{door: Heb. threshold}
And let them deliver
<05414> (8799)
it into the hand
<03027>
of the doers
<06213> (8802)
of the work
<04399>_,
that have the oversight
<06485> (8716)
of the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_:
and let them give
<05414> (8799)
it to the doers
<06213> (8802)
of the work
<04399>
which [is] in the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
to repair
<02388> (8763)
the breaches
<0919>

<01004>_,
Unto carpenters
<02796>_,
and builders
<01129> (8802)_,
and masons

and to buy

timber
<06086>
and hewn
<04274>
stone
<068>
to repair
<02388> (8763)
the house
<01004>_.
Howbeit there was no reckoning made
<02803> (8735)
with them of the money
<03701>
that was delivered
<05414> (8737)
into their hand
<03027>_,

<06213> (8802)
faithfully
<0530>_.

2 Kings 23:1-25

And the king
<04428>
sent
<07971> (8799)_,
and they gathered
<0622> (8799)
unto him all the elders
<02205>
of Judah
<03063>
and of Jerusalem
<03389>_.
And the king
<04428>
went up
<05927> (8799)
into the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
and all the men
<0376>
of Judah
<03063>
and all the inhabitants
<03427> (8802)
of Jerusalem
<03389>
with him, and the priests
<03548>_,
and the prophets
<05030>_,
and all the people
<05971>_,
both small
<06996>
and great
<01419>_:
and he read
<07121> (8799)
in their ears
<0241>
all the words
<01697>
of the book
<05612>
of the covenant
<01285>
which was found
<04672> (8737)
in the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_.
{both...: Heb. from small even unto great}
And the king
<04428>
stood
<05975> (8799)
by a pillar
<05982>_,
and made
<03772> (8799)
a covenant
<01285>
before
<06440>
the LORD
<03068>_,
to walk
<03212> (8800)
after
<0310>
the LORD
<03068>_,
and to keep
<08104> (8800)
his commandments
<04687>
and his testimonies
<05715>
and his statutes
<02708>
with all [their] heart
<03820>
and all [their] soul
<05315>_,
to perform
<06965> (8687)
the words
<01697>
of this covenant
<01285>
that were written
<03789> (8803)
in this book
<05612>_.
And all the people
<05971>
stood
<05975> (8799)
to the covenant
<01285>_.
And the king
<04428>
commanded
<06680> (8762)
Hilkiah
<02518>
the high
<01419>
priest
<03548>_,
and the priests
<03548>
of the second order
<04932>_,
and the keepers
<08104> (8802)
of the door
<05592>_,
to bring forth
<03318> (8687)
out of the temple
<01964>
of the LORD
<03068>
all the vessels
<03627>
that were made
<06213> (8803)
for Baal
<01168>_,
and for the grove
<0842>_,
and for all the host
<06635>
of heaven
<08064>_:
and he burned
<08313> (8799)
them without
<02351>
Jerusalem
<03389>
in the fields
<07709>
of Kidron
<06939>_,
and carried
<05375> (8804)
the ashes
<06083>
of them unto Bethel
<01008>_.
And he put down
<07673> (8689)
the idolatrous priests
<03649>_,
whom the kings
<04428>
of Judah
<03063>
had ordained
<05414> (8804)
to burn incense
<06999> (8762)
in the high places
<01116>
in the cities
<05892>
of Judah
<03063>_,
and in the places round about
<04524>
Jerusalem
<03389>_;
them also that burned incense
<06999> (8764)
unto Baal
<01168>_,
to the sun
<08121>_,
and to the moon
<03394>_,
and to the planets
<04208>_,
and to all the host
<06635>
of heaven
<08064>_.
{put...: Heb. caused to cease} {idolatrous...: Heb. Chemarim} {planets: or, twelve signs or, constellations}
And he brought out
<03318> (8686)
the grove
<0842>
from the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
without
<02351>
Jerusalem
<03389>_,
unto the brook
<05158>
Kidron
<06939>_,
and burned
<08313> (8799)
it at the brook
<05158>
Kidron
<06939>_,
and stamped [it] small
<01854> (8686)
to powder
<06083>_,
and cast
<07993> (8686)
the powder
<06083>
thereof upon the graves
<06913>
of the children
<01121>
of the people
<05971>_.
And he brake down
<05422> (8799)
the houses
<01004>
of the sodomites
<06945>_,
that [were] by the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
where the women
<0802>
wove
<0707> (8802)
hangings
<01004>
for the grove
<0842>_.
{hangings: Heb. houses}
And he brought
<0935> (8686)
all the priests
<03548>
out of the cities
<05892>
of Judah
<03063>_,
and defiled
<02930> (8762)
the high places
<01116>
where the priests
<03548>
had burned incense
<06999> (8765)_,
from Geba
<01387>
to Beersheba
<0884>_,
and brake down
<05422> (8804)
the high places
<01116>
of the gates
<08179>
that [were] in the entering in
<06607>
of the gate
<08179>
of Joshua
<03091>
the governor
<08269>
of the city
<05892>_,
which [were] on a man's
<0376>
left hand
<08040>
at the gate
<08179>
of the city
<05892>_.
Nevertheless the priests
<03548>
of the high places
<01116>
came not up
<05927> (8799)
to the altar
<04196>
of the LORD
<03068>
in Jerusalem
<03389>_,
but they did eat
<0398> (8804)
of the unleavened bread
<04682>
among
<08432>
their brethren
<0251>_.
And he defiled
<02930> (8765)
Topheth
<08612>_,
which [is] in the valley
<01516>
of the children
<01121> (8675) <01121>
of Hinnom
<02011>_,
that no man
<0376>
might make his son
<01121>
or his daughter
<01323>
to pass through
<05674> (8687)
the fire
<0784>
to Molech
<04432>_.
And he took away
<07673> (8686)
the horses
<05483>
that the kings
<04428>
of Judah
<03063>
had given
<05414> (8804)
to the sun
<08121>_,
at the entering in
<0935> (8800)
of the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
by the chamber
<03957>
of Nathanmelech
<05419>
the chamberlain
<05631>_,
which [was] in the suburbs
<06503>_,
and burned
<08313> (8804)
the chariots
<04818>
of the sun
<08121>
with fire
<0784>_.
{chamberlain: or, eunuch, or, officer}
And the altars
<04196>
that [were] on the top
<01406>
of the upper chamber
<05944>
of Ahaz
<0271>_,
which the kings
<04428>
of Judah
<03063>
had made
<06213> (8804)_,
and the altars
<04196>
which Manasseh
<04519>
had made
<06213> (8804)
in the two
<08147>
courts
<02691>
of the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
did the king
<04428>
beat down
<05422> (8804)_,
and brake [them] down
<07323> (8799)
from thence, and cast
<07993> (8689)
the dust
<06083>
of them into the brook
<05158>
Kidron
<06939>_.
{brake...: or, ran from thence}
And the high places
<01116>
that [were] before
<06440>
Jerusalem
<03389>_,
which [were] on the right hand
<03225>
of the mount
<02022>
of corruption
<04889>_,
which Solomon
<08010>
the king
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>
had builded
<01129> (8804)
for Ashtoreth
<06253>
the abomination
<08251>
of the Zidonians
<06722>_,
and for Chemosh
<03645>
the abomination
<08251>
of the Moabites
<04124>_,
and for Milcom
<04445>
the abomination
<08441>
of the children
<01121>
of Ammon
<05983>_,
did the king
<04428>
defile
<02930> (8765)_.
{the mount...: that is, the mount of Olives}
And he brake in pieces
<07665> (8765)
the images
<04676>_,
and cut down
<03772> (8799)
the groves
<0842>_,
and filled
<04390> (8762)
their places
<04725>
with the bones
<06106>
of men
<0120>_.
{images: Heb. statues}
Moreover the altar
<04196>
that [was] at Bethel
<01008>_,
[and] the high place
<01116>
which Jeroboam
<03379>
the son
<01121>
of Nebat
<05028>_,
who made Israel
<03478>
to sin
<02398> (8689)_,
had made
<06213> (8804)_,
both that altar
<04196>
and the high place
<01116>
he brake down
<05422> (8804)_,
and burned
<08313> (8799)
the high place
<01116>_,
[and] stamped
<01854> (8689)
[it] small to powder
<06083>_,
and burned
<08313> (8804)
the grove
<0842>_.
And as Josiah
<02977>
turned
<06437> (8799)
himself, he spied
<07200> (8799)
the sepulchres
<06913>
that [were] there in the mount
<02022>_,
and sent
<07971> (8799)_,
and took
<03947> (8799)
the bones
<06106>
out of the sepulchres
<06913>_,
and burned
<08313> (8799)
[them] upon the altar
<04196>_,
and polluted
<02930> (8762)
it, according to the word
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>
which the man
<0376>
of God
<0430>
proclaimed
<07121> (8804)_,
who proclaimed
<07121> (8804)
these words
<01697>_.
Then he said
<0559> (8799)_,
What title
<06725>
[is] that
<01975>
that I see
<07200> (8802)_?
And the men
<0582>
of the city
<05892>
told
<0559> (8799)
him, [It is] the sepulchre
<06913>
of the man
<0376>
of God
<0430>_,
which came
<0935> (8804)
from Judah
<03063>_,
and proclaimed
<07121> (8799)
these things
<01697>
that thou hast done
<06213> (8804)
against the altar
<04196>
of Bethel
<01008>_.
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Let him alone
<03240> (8685)_;
let no man
<0376>
move
<05128> (8686)
his bones
<06106>_.
So they let his bones
<06106>
alone
<04422> (8762)_,
with the bones
<06106>
of the prophet
<05030>
that came out
<0935> (8804)
of Samaria
<08111>_.
{bones alone: Heb. bones to escape}
And all the houses
<01004>
also of the high places
<01116>
that [were] in the cities
<05892>
of Samaria
<08111>_,
which the kings
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>
had made
<06213> (8804)
to provoke [the LORD] to anger
<03707> (8687)_,
Josiah
<02977>
took away
<05493> (8689)_,
and did
<06213> (8799)
to them according to all the acts
<04639>
that he had done
<06213> (8804)
in Bethel
<01008>_.
And he slew
<02076> (8799)
all the priests
<03548>
of the high places
<01116>
that [were] there upon the altars
<04196>_,
and burned
<08313> (8799)
men's
<0120>
bones
<06106>
upon them, and returned
<07725> (8799)
to Jerusalem
<03389>_.
{slew: or, sacrificed}
And the king
<04428>
commanded
<06680> (8762)
all the people
<05971>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Keep
<06213> (8798)
the passover
<06453>
unto the LORD
<03068>
your God
<0430>_,
as [it is] written
<03789> (8803)
in the book
<05612>
of this covenant
<01285>_.
Surely there was not holden
<06213> (8738)
such a passover
<06453>
from the days
<03117>
of the judges
<08199> (8802)
that judged
<08199> (8804)
Israel
<03478>_,
nor in all the days
<03117>
of the kings
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>_,
nor of the kings
<04428>
of Judah
<03063>_;
But in the eighteenth
<08083> <06240>
year
<08141>
of king
<04428>
Josiah
<02977>_,
[wherein] this passover
<06453>
was holden
<06213> (8738)
to the LORD
<03068>
in Jerusalem
<03389>_.
Moreover the [workers with] familiar spirits
<0178>_,
and the wizards
<03049>_,
and the images
<08655>_,
and the idols
<01544>_,
and all the abominations
<08251>
that were spied
<07200> (8738)
in the land
<0776>
of Judah
<03063>
and in Jerusalem
<03389>_,
did Josiah
<02977>
put away
<01197> (8765)_,
that he might perform
<06965> (8687)
the words
<01697>
of the law
<08451>
which were written
<03789> (8803)
in the book
<05612>
that Hilkiah
<02518>
the priest
<03548>
found
<04672> (8804)
in the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_.
{images: or, teraphim}
And like unto him was there no king
<04428>
before
<06440>
him, that turned
<07725> (8804)
to the LORD
<03068>
with all his heart
<03824>_,
and with all his soul
<05315>_,
and with all his might
<03966>_,
according to all the law
<08451>
of Moses
<04872>_;
neither after
<0310>
him arose
<06965> (8804)
there [any] like him.

2 Chronicles 34:3-13

For in the eighth
<08083>
year
<08141>
of his reign
<04427> (8800)_,
while he was yet young
<05288>_,
he began
<02490> (8689)
to seek
<01875> (8800)
after the God
<0430>
of David
<01732>
his father
<01>_:
and in the twelfth
<08147> <06240>
year
<08141>
he began
<02490> (8689)
to purge
<02891> (8763)
Judah
<03063>
and Jerusalem
<03389>
from the high places
<01116>_,
and the groves
<0842>_,
and the carved images
<06456>_,
and the molten images
<04541>_.
And they brake down
<05422> (8762)
the altars
<04196>
of Baalim
<01168>
in his presence
<06440>_;
and the images
<02553>_,
that [were] on high above them
<04605>_,
he cut down
<01438> (8765)_;
and the groves
<0842>_,
and the carved images
<06456>_,
and the molten images
<04541>_,
he brake in pieces
<07665> (8765)_,
and made dust
<01854> (8689)
[of them], and strowed
<02236> (8799)
[it] upon
<06440>
the graves
<06913>
of them that had sacrificed
<02076> (8802)
unto them. {the images: or, the sun images} {graves: Heb. face of the graves}
And he burnt
<08313> (8804)
the bones
<06106>
of the priests
<03548>
upon their altars
<04196>_,
and cleansed
<02891> (8762)
Judah
<03063>
and Jerusalem
<03389>_.
And [so did he] in the cities
<05892>
of Manasseh
<04519>_,
and Ephraim
<0669>_,
and Simeon
<08095>_,
even unto Naphtali
<05321>_,
with their mattocks
<02719>
round about
<05439>_.
{mattocks: or, mauls}
And when he had broken down
<05422> (8762)
the altars
<04196>
and the groves
<0842>_,
and had beaten
<03807> (8765)
the graven images
<06456>
into powder
<01854> (8687)_,
and cut down
<01438> (8765)
all the idols
<02553>
throughout all the land
<0776>
of Israel
<03478>_,
he returned
<07725> (8799)
to Jerusalem
<03389>_.
{into...: Heb. to make powder}
Now in the eighteenth
<08083> <06240>
year
<08141>
of his reign
<04427> (8800)_,
when he had purged
<02891> (8763)
the land
<0776>_,
and the house
<01004>_,
he sent
<07971> (8804)
Shaphan
<08227>
the son
<01121>
of Azaliah
<0683>_,
and Maaseiah
<04641>
the governor
<08269>
of the city
<05892>_,
and Joah
<03098>
the son
<01121>
of Joahaz
<03099>
the recorder
<02142> (8688)_,
to repair
<02388> (8763)
the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>
his God
<0430>_.
And when they came
<0935> (8799)
to Hilkiah
<02518>
the high
<01419>
priest
<03548>_,
they delivered
<05414> (8799)
the money
<03701>
that was brought
<0935> (8716)
into the house
<01004>
of God
<0430>_,
which the Levites
<03881>
that kept
<08104> (8802)
the doors
<05592>
had gathered
<0622> (8804)
of the hand
<03027>
of Manasseh
<04519>
and Ephraim
<0669>_,
and of all the remnant
<07611>
of Israel
<03478>_,
and of all Judah
<03063>
and Benjamin
<01144>_;
and they returned
<07725> (8799) (8675) <03427> (8802)
to Jerusalem
<03389>_.
And they put
<05414> (8799)
[it] in the hand
<03027>
of the workmen
<06213> (8802) <04399>
that had the oversight
<06485> (8716)
of the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
and they gave
<05414> (8799)
it to the workmen
<06213> (8802) <04399>
that wrought
<06213> (8802)
in the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
to repair
<0918> (8800)
and amend
<02388> (8763)
the house
<01004>_:
Even to the artificers
<02796>
and builders
<01129> (8802)
gave
<05414> (8799)
they [it], to buy
<07069> (8800)
hewn
<04274>
stone
<068>_,
and timber
<06086>
for couplings
<04226>_,
and to floor
<07136> (8763)
the houses
<01004>
which the kings
<04428>
of Judah
<03063>
had destroyed
<07843> (8689)_.
{to floor: or, to rafter}
And the men
<0582>
did
<06213> (8802)
the work
<04399>
faithfully
<0530>_:
and the overseers
<05329> (8763)
of them [were] Jahath
<03189>
and Obadiah
<05662>_,
the Levites
<03881>_,
of the sons
<01121>
of Merari
<04847>_;
and Zechariah
<02148>
and Meshullam
<04918>_,
of the sons of the Kohathites
<06956>_,
to set [it] forward
<06485> (8716)_;
and [other of] the Levites
<03881>_,
all that could skill
<0995> (8688)
of instruments
<03627>
of musick
<07892>_.
Also [they were] over the bearers of burdens
<05449>_,
and [were] overseers
<05329> (8764)
of all that wrought
<06213> (8802)
the work
<04399>
in any manner of service
<05656>_:
and of the Levites
<03881>
[there were] scribes
<05608> (8802)_,
and officers
<07860> (8802)_,
and porters
<07778>_.

2 Chronicles 34:29--35:19

Then the king
<04428>
sent
<07971> (8799)
and gathered together
<0622> (8799)
all the elders
<02205>
of Judah
<03063>
and Jerusalem
<03389>_.
And the king
<04428>
went up
<05927> (8799)
into the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
and all the men
<0376>
of Judah
<03063>_,
and the inhabitants
<03427> (8802)
of Jerusalem
<03389>_,
and the priests
<03548>_,
and the Levites
<03881>_,
and all the people
<05971>_,
great
<01419>
and small
<06996>_:
and he read
<07121> (8799)
in their ears
<0241>
all the words
<01697>
of the book
<05612>
of the covenant
<01285>
that was found
<04672> (8737)
in the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_.
{great...: Heb. from great even to small}
And the king
<04428>
stood
<05975> (8799)
in his place
<05977>_,
and made
<03772> (8799)
a covenant
<01285>
before
<06440>
the LORD
<03068>_,
to walk
<03212> (8800)
after
<0310>
the LORD
<03068>_,
and to keep
<08104> (8800)
his commandments
<04687>_,
and his testimonies
<05715>_,
and his statutes
<02706>_,
with all his heart
<03824>_,
and with all his soul
<05315>_,
to perform
<06213> (8800)
the words
<01697>
of the covenant
<01285>
which are written
<03789> (8803)
in this book
<05612>_.
And he caused all that were present
<04672> (8737)
in Jerusalem
<03389>
and Benjamin
<01144>
to stand
<05975> (8686)
[to it]. And the inhabitants
<03427> (8802)
of Jerusalem
<03389>
did
<06213> (8799)
according to the covenant
<01285>
of God
<0430>_,
the God
<0430>
of their fathers
<01>_.
{present: Heb. found}
And Josiah
<02977>
took away
<05493> (8686)
all the abominations
<08441>
out of all the countries
<0776>
that [pertained] to the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>_,
and made all that were present
<04672> (8737)
in Israel
<03478>
to serve
<05647> (8686)_,
[even] to serve
<05647> (8800)
the LORD
<03068>
their God
<0430>_.
[And] all his days
<03117>
they departed
<05493> (8804)
not from following
<0310>
the LORD
<03068>_,
the God
<0430>
of their fathers
<01>_.
{present: Heb. found} {from...: Heb. from after}
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)_.
