HezekiahH2396 began to reignH4427 when he was fiveH2568 and twentyH6242 yearsH8141 old,H1121 and he reignedH4427 nineH8672 and twentyH6242 yearsH8141 in Jerusalem.H3389 And his mother'sH517 nameH8034 was Abijah,H29 the daughterH1323 of Zechariah.H2148
And he didH6213 that which was rightH3477 in the sightH5869 of the LORD,H3068 according to allH3605 that DavidH1732 his fatherH25 had done.H6213
He in the firstH7223 yearH8141 of his reign,H4427 in the firstH7223 month,H2320 openedH6605 the doorsH1817 of the houseH1004 of the LORD,H3068 and repairedH2388 them.
And he broughtH935 in the priestsH3548 and the Levites,H3881 and gatheredH622 them together into the eastH4217 street,H7339
And saidH559 to them, HearH8085 me, you Levites,H3881 sanctifyH6942 nowH6258 yourselves, and sanctifyH6942 the houseH1004 of the LORDH3068 GodH430 of your fathers,H1 and carryH3318 forthH3318 the filthinessH5079 out of the holyH6944 place.
For our fathersH1 have trespassed,H4603 and doneH6213 that which was evilH7451 in the eyesH5869 of the LORDH3068 our God,H430 and have forsakenH5800 him, and have turnedH5437 away their facesH6440 from the habitationH4908 of the LORD,H3068 and turnedH5414 their backs.H6203
AlsoH1571 they have shutH5462 up the doorsH1817 of the porch,H197 and putH3518 out the lamps,H5216 and have not burnedH6999 incenseH7004 norH3808 offeredH5927 burntH5930 offerings in the holyH6944 place to the GodH430 of Israel.H3478
Why the wrathH7110 of the LORDH3068 was on JudahH3063 and Jerusalem,H3389 and he has deliveredH5414 them to trouble,H2189 to astonishment,H8047 and to hissing,H8322 as you seeH7200 with your eyes.H5869
For, see,H2009 our fathersH1 have fallenH5307 by the sword,H2719 and our sonsH1121 and our daughtersH1323 and our wivesH802 are in captivityH7628 for this.H2088
NowH6258 it is in my heartH3824 to makeH3772 a covenantH1285 with the LORDH3068 GodH430 of Israel,H3478 that his fierceH2740 wrathH639 may turnH7725 away from us.
My sons,H1121 be not nowH6258 negligent:H7952 for the LORDH3068 has chosenH970 you to standH5975 beforeH6440 him, to serveH8334 him, and that you should ministerH8334 to him, and burnH6999 incense.H6999
Then the LevitesH3881 arose,H6965 MahathH4287 the sonH1121 of Amasai,H6022 and JoelH3100 the sonH1121 of Azariah,H5838 of the sonsH1121 of the Kohathites:H6956 and of the sonsH1121 of Merari,H4847 KishH7027 the sonH1121 of Abdi,H5660 and AzariahH5838 the sonH1121 of Jehalelel:H3094 and of the Gershonites;H1649 JoahH3098 the sonH1121 of Zimmah,H2155 and EdenH5731 the sonH1121 of Joah:H3098
And of the sonsH1121 of Elizaphan;H469 Shimri,H8113 and Jeiel:H3273 and of the sonsH1121 of Asaph;H623 Zechariah,H2148 and Mattaniah:H4983
And of the sonsH1121 of Heman;H1968 Jehiel,H3171 and Shimei:H8096 and of the sonsH1121 of Jeduthun;H3038 Shemaiah,H8098 and Uzziel.H5816
And they gatheredH622 their brothers,H251 and sanctifiedH6942 themselves, and came,H935 according to the commandmentH4687 of the king,H4428 by the wordsH1697 of the LORD,H3068 to cleanseH2891 the houseH1004 of the LORD.H3068
And the priestsH3548 wentH935 into the innerH6441 part of the houseH1004 of the LORD,H3068 to cleanseH2891 it, and broughtH3318 out allH3605 the uncleannessH2932 that they foundH4672 in the templeH1964 of the LORDH3068 into the courtH2691 of the houseH1004 of the LORD.H3068 And the LevitesH3881 tookH6901 it, to carryH3318 it out abroadH2351 into the brookH5158 Kidron.H6939
Now they beganH2490 on the firstH7223 day of the firstH7223 monthH2320 to sanctify,H6942 and on the eighthH8066 day of the monthH2320 cameH935 they to the porchH197 of the LORD:H3068 so they sanctifiedH6942 the houseH1004 of the LORDH3068 in eightH8083 days;H3117 and in the sixteenthH8337 H6240 day of the firstH7223 monthH2320 they made an end.H3615
Then they wentH935 in to HezekiahH2396 the king,H4428 and said,H559 We have cleansedH2891 allH3605 the houseH1004 of the LORD,H3068 and the altarH4196 of burntH5930 offering, with allH3605 the vesselsH3627 thereof, and the show breadH4635 table,H7979 with allH3605 the vesselsH3627 thereof.
Moreover allH3605 the vessels,H3627 whichH834 kingH4428 AhazH271 in his reignH4438 did castH2186 away in his transgression,H4604 have we preparedH3559 and sanctified,H6942 and, behold,H2009 they are beforeH6440 the altarH4196 of the LORD.H3068
Then HezekiahH2396 the kingH4428 roseH7925 early,H7925 and gatheredH622 the rulersH8269 of the city,H5892 and wentH5927 up to the houseH1004 of the LORD.H3068
And they broughtH935 sevenH7651 bullocks,H6499 and sevenH7651 rams,H352 and sevenH7651 lambs,H3532 and sevenH7651 he goats,H5795 for a sinH2403 offering for the kingdom,H4467 and for the sanctuary,H4720 and for Judah.H3063 And he commandedH559 the priestsH3548 the sonsH1121 of AaronH175 to offerH5927 them onH5921 the altarH4196 of the LORD.H3068
So they killedH7819 the bullocks,H1241 and the priestsH3548 receivedH6901 the blood,H1818 and sprinkledH2236 it on the altar:H4196 likewise, when they had killedH7819 the rams,H352 they sprinkledH2236 the bloodH1818 on the altar:H4196 they killedH7819 also the lambs,H3532 and they sprinkledH2236 the bloodH1818 on the altar.H4196
And they broughtH5066 forth the he goatsH8163 for the sinH2403 offering beforeH6440 the kingH4428 and the congregation;H6951 and they laidH5564 their handsH3027 on them:
And the priestsH3548 killedH7819 them, and they made reconciliationH2398 with their bloodH1818 on the altar,H4196 to make an atonementH3722 for allH3605 Israel:H3478 for the kingH4428 commandedH559 that the burntH5930 offering and the sinH2403 offering should be made for allH3605 Israel.H3478
And he setH5975 the LevitesH3881 in the houseH1004 of the LORDH3068 with cymbals,H4700 with psalteries,H5035 and with harps,H3658 according to the commandmentH4687 of David,H1732 and of GadH1410 the king'sH4428 seer,H2374 and NathanH5416 the prophet:H5030 for so was the commandmentH4687 of the LORDH3068 by his prophets.H5030
And the LevitesH3881 stoodH5975 with the instrumentsH3627 of David,H1732 and the priestsH3548 with the trumpets.H2689
And HezekiahH2396 commandedH559 to offerH5927 the burntH5930 offering on the altar.H4196 And whenH6256 the burntH5930 offering began,H2490 the songH7892 of the LORDH3068 beganH2490 also with the trumpets,H2689 and with the instrumentsH3627 ordained by DavidH1732 kingH4428 of Israel.H3478
And allH3605 the congregationH6951 worshipped,H7812 and the singersH7892 sang,H7891 and the trumpetersH2690 sounded:H2690 and allH3605 this continued untilH5704 the burntH5930 offering was finished.H3615
And when they had made an endH3615 of offering,H5927 the kingH4428 and allH3605 that were presentH4672 with him bowedH3766 themselves, and worshipped.H7812
Moreover HezekiahH2396 the kingH4428 and the princesH8269 commandedH559 the LevitesH3881 to singH1984 praiseH1984 to the LORDH3068 with the wordsH1697 of David,H1732 and of AsaphH623 the seer.H2374 And they sang praisesH1984 with gladness,H8057 and they bowedH6915 their heads and worshipped.H7812
Then HezekiahH2396 answeredH6030 and said,H559 NowH6258 you have consecratedH4390 H3027 yourselvesH3027 to the LORD,H3068 comeH5066 nearH5066 and bringH935 sacrificesH2077 and thankH8426 offerings into the houseH1004 of the LORD.H3068 And the congregationH6951 broughtH935 in sacrificesH2077 and thankH8426 offerings; and as many as were of a freeH5081 heartH3820 burntH5930 offerings.
And the numberH4557 of the burntH5930 offerings, whichH834 the congregationH6951 brought,H935 was three scoreH7657 and ten bullocks,H1241 an hundredH3967 rams,H352 and two hundredH3967 lambs:H3532 allH3605 theseH428 were for a burntH5930 offering to the LORD.H3068
And the consecratedH6942 things were sixH8337 hundredH3967 oxenH1241 and threeH7969 thousandH505 sheep.H6629
But the priestsH3548 were too few,H4592 so that they couldH3201 not flayH6584 allH3605 the burntH5930 offerings: why their brothersH251 the LevitesH3881 did helpH2388 them, tillH5704 the workH4399 was ended,H3615 and untilH5704 the other priestsH3548 had sanctifiedH6942 themselves: for the LevitesH3881 were more uprightH3477 in heartH3824 to sanctifyH6942 themselves than the priests.H3548
And alsoH1571 the burntH5930 offerings were in abundance,H7230 with the fatH2459 of the peaceH8002 offerings, and the drinkH5262 offerings for every burntH5930 offering. So the serviceH5656 of the houseH1004 of the LORDH3068 was setH3559 in order.H3559
And HezekiahH2396 rejoiced,H8055 and allH3605 the people,H5971 that GodH430 had preparedH3559 the people:H5971 for the thingH1697 was done suddenly.H6597
