JosiahH2977 was eightH8083 yearsH8141 oldH1121 when he began to reign,H4427 and he reignedH4427 thirtyH7970 and oneH259 yearsH8141 in Jerusalem.H3389 And his mother'sH517 nameH8034 was Jedidah,H3040 the daughterH1323 of AdaiahH5718 of Boscath.H1218
And he didH6213 that which was rightH3477 in the sightH5869 of the LORD,H3068 and walkedH3212 in allH3605 the wayH1870 of DavidH1732 his father,H1 and turnedH5493 not asideH5493 to the rightH3225 handH3225 or to the left.H8040
And it cameH1961 to pass in the eighteenthH6240 yearH8141 of kingH4428 Josiah,H2977 that the kingH4428 sentH7971 ShaphanH8227 the sonH1121 of Azaliah,H683 the sonH1121 of Meshullam,H4918 the scribe,H5608 to the houseH1004 of the LORD,H3068 saying,H559
GoH5927 up to HilkiahH2518 the highH1419 priest,H3548 that he may sumH8552 the silverH3701 which is broughtH935 into the houseH1004 of the LORD,H3068 whichH834 the keepersH8104 of the doorH5592 have gatheredH622 of the people:H5971
And let them deliverH5414 it intoH5921 the handH3027 of the doersH6213 of the work,H4399 that have the oversightH6485 of the houseH1004 of the LORD:H3068 and let them giveH5414 it to the doersH6213 of the workH4399 whichH834 is in the houseH1004 of the LORD,H3068 to repairH2388 the breachesH919 of the house,H1004
To carpenters,H2796 and builders,H1129 and masons,H1443 and to buyH7069 timberH6086 and hewnH4274 stoneH68 to repairH2388 the house.H1004
However, there was noH3808 reckoningH2803 made with them of the moneyH3701 that was deliveredH5414 intoH5921 their hand,H3027 becauseH3588 they dealtH6213 faithfully.H530
And HilkiahH2518 the highH1419 priestH3548 saidH559 to ShaphanH8227 the scribe,H5608 I have foundH4672 the bookH5612 of the lawH8451 in the houseH1004 of the LORD.H3068 And HilkiahH2518 gaveH5414 the bookH5612 to Shaphan,H8227 and he readH7121 it.
And ShaphanH8227 the scribeH5608 cameH935 to the king,H4428 and broughtH7725 the kingH4428 wordH1697 again,H7725 and said,H559 Your servantsH5650 have gatheredH5413 the moneyH3701 that was foundH4672 in the house,H1004 and have deliveredH5414 it intoH5921 the handH3027 of them that doH6213 the work,H4399 that have the oversightH6485 of the houseH1004 of the LORD.H3068
And ShaphanH8227 the scribeH5608 showedH7200 the king,H4428 saying,H559 HilkiahH2518 the priestH3548 has deliveredH5414 me a book.H5612 And ShaphanH8227 readH7121 it beforeH6440 the king.H4428
And it cameH1961 to pass, when the kingH4428 had heardH8085 the wordsH1697 of the bookH5612 of the law,H8451 that he rentH7167 his clothes.H899
And the kingH4428 commandedH6680 HilkiahH2518 the priest,H3548 and AhikamH296 the sonH1121 of Shaphan,H8227 and AchborH5907 the sonH1121 of Michaiah,H4320 and ShaphanH8227 the scribe,H5608 and AsahiahH6222 a servantH5650 of the king's,H4428 saying,H559
GoH3212 you, inquireH1875 of the LORDH3068 for me, and for the people,H5971 and for allH3605 Judah,H3063 concerningH5921 the wordsH1697 of thisH2088 bookH5612 that is found:H4672 for greatH1419 is the wrathH2534 of the LORDH3068 that is kindledH3341 against us, becauseH3282 H834 our fathersH1 have not listenedH8085 to the wordsH1697 of thisH2088 book,H5612 to doH6213 according to allH3605 that which is writtenH3789 concerningH5921 us.
So HilkiahH2518 the priest,H3548 and Ahikam,H296 and Achbor,H5907 and Shaphan,H8227 and Asahiah,H6222 wentH3212 to HuldahH2468 the prophetess,H5031 the wifeH802 of ShallumH7967 the sonH1121 of Tikvah,H8616 the sonH1121 of Harhas,H2745 keeperH8104 of the wardrobe;H899 (now she dwelledH3427 in JerusalemH3389 in the college;H4932) and they communedH1696 with her.
And she saidH559 to them, ThusH3541 saidH559 the LORDH3068 GodH430 of Israel,H3478 TellH559 the manH376 that sentH7971 you to me,
ThusH3541 saidH559 the LORD,H3068 Behold,H2005 I will bringH935 evilH7451 on thisH2088 place,H4725 and on the inhabitantsH3427 thereof, even allH3605 the wordsH1697 of the bookH5612 whichH834 the kingH4428 of JudahH3063 has read:H7121
BecauseH8478 H834 they have forsakenH5800 me, and have burnedH6999 incenseH6999 to otherH312 gods,H430 that they might provoke me to angerH3707 with allH3605 the worksH4639 of their hands;H3027 therefore my wrathH2534 shall be kindledH3341 against thisH2088 place,H4725 and shall not be quenched.H3518
But to the kingH4428 of JudahH3063 which sentH7971 you to inquireH1875 of the LORD,H3068 thusH3541 shall you sayH559 to him, ThusH3541 saidH559 the LORDH3068 GodH430 of Israel,H3478 As touching the wordsH1697 whichH834 you have heard;H8085
BecauseH3282 your heartH3824 was tender,H7401 and you have humbledH3665 yourself beforeH6440 the LORD,H3068 when you heardH8085 whatH834 I spokeH1696 againstH5921 thisH2088 place,H4725 and againstH5921 the inhabitantsH3427 thereof, that they should becomeH1961 a desolationH8047 and a curse,H7045 and have rentH7167 your clothes,H899 and weptH1058 beforeH6440 me; I alsoH1571 have heardH8085 you, saidH5002 the LORD.H3068
BeholdH2005 therefore,H3651 I will gatherH622 you to your fathers,H1 and you shall be gatheredH622 intoH413 your graveH6913 in peace;H7965 and your eyesH5869 shall not seeH7200 allH3605 the evilH7451 whichH834 I will bringH935 on thisH2088 place.H4725 And they broughtH7725 the kingH4428 wordH1697 again.H7725
