2 Chronicles 30:1-10

And Hezekiah
<03169>
sent
<07971> (8799)
to all Israel
<03478>
and Judah
<03063>_,
and wrote
<03789> (8804)
letters
<0107>
also to Ephraim
<0669>
and Manasseh
<04519>_,
that they should come
<0935> (8800)
to the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>
at Jerusalem
<03389>_,
to keep
<06213> (8800)
the passover
<06453>
unto the LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>_.
For the king
<04428>
had taken counsel
<03289> (8735)_,
and his princes
<08269>_,
and all the congregation
<06951>
in Jerusalem
<03389>_,
to keep
<06213> (8800)
the passover
<06453>
in the second
<08145>
month
<02320>_.
For they could
<03201> (8804)
not keep
<06213> (8800)
it at that time
<06256>_,
because the priests
<03548>
had not sanctified
<06942> (8694)
themselves sufficiently
<04078> (8676) <01767>_,
neither had the people
<05971>
gathered themselves together
<0622> (8738)
to Jerusalem
<03389>_.
And the thing
<01697>
pleased
<03474> (8799) <05869>
the king
<04428>
and all the congregation
<06951>_.
{pleased...: Heb. was right in the eyes of the king}
So they established
<05975> (8686)
a decree
<01697>
to make proclamation
<05674> (8687) <06963>
throughout all Israel
<03478>_,
from Beersheba
<0884>
even to Dan
<01835>_,
that they should come
<0935> (8800)
to keep
<06213> (8800)
the passover
<06453>
unto the LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>
at Jerusalem
<03389>_:
for they had not done
<06213> (8804)
[it] of a long
<07230>
[time in such sort] as it was written
<03789> (8803)_.
So the posts
<07323> (8801)
went
<03212> (8799)
with the letters
<0107>
from
<03027>
the king
<04428>
and his princes
<08269>
throughout all Israel
<03478>
and Judah
<03063>_,
and according to the commandment
<04687>
of the king
<04428>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Ye children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>_,
turn again
<07725> (8798)
unto the LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>
of Abraham
<085>_,
Isaac
<03327>_,
and Israel
<03478>_,
and he will return
<07725> (8799)
to the remnant
<07604> (8737)
of you, that are escaped
<06413>
out of the hand
<03709>
of the kings
<04428>
of Assyria
<0804>_.
{from: Heb. from the hand}
And be not ye like your fathers
<01>_,
and like your brethren
<0251>_,
which trespassed
<04603> (8804)
against the LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>
of their fathers
<01>_,
[who] therefore gave them up
<05414> (8799)
to desolation
<08047>_,
as ye see
<07200> (8802)_.
Now be ye not stiffnecked
<07185> (8686) <06203>_,
as your fathers
<01>
[were, but] yield
<05414> (8798)
yourselves
<03027>
unto the LORD
<03068>_,
and enter
<0935> (8798)
into his sanctuary
<04720>_,
which he hath sanctified
<06942> (8689)
for ever
<05769>_:
and serve
<05647> (8798)
the LORD
<03068>
your God
<0430>_,
that the fierceness
<02740>
of his wrath
<0639>
may turn away
<07725> (8799)
from you. {be ye...: Heb. harden not your necks} {yield...: Heb. give the hand}
For if ye turn again
<07725> (8800)
unto the LORD
<03068>_,
your brethren
<0251>
and your children
<01121>
[shall find] compassion
<07356>
before
<06440>
them that lead them captive
<07617> (8802)_,
so that they shall come again
<07725> (8800)
into this land
<0776>_:
for the LORD
<03068>
your God
<0430>
[is] gracious
<02587>
and merciful
<07349>_,
and will not turn away
<05493> (8686)
[his] face
<06440>
from you, if ye return
<07725> (8799)
unto him.
So the posts
<07323> (8801)
passed
<05674> (8802)
from city
<05892>
to city
<05892>
through the country
<0776>
of Ephraim
<0669>
and Manasseh
<04519>
even unto Zebulun
<02074>_:
but they laughed them to scorn
<07832> (8688)_,
and mocked
<03932> (8688)
them.
