1 H3615 Now when all this was finished [H8763] H3478 , all Israel H4672 that were present [H8737] H3318 went out [H8804] H5892 to the cities H3063 of Judah H7665 , and brake H4676 the images H7665 in pieces [H8762] H1438 , and cut down [H8762] H842 the groves H5422 , and threw down [H8762] H1116 the high places H4196 and the altars H3063 out of all Judah H1144 and Benjamin H669 , in Ephraim H4519 also and Manasseh H3615 , until they had utterly destroyed [H8763] H1121 them all. Then all the children H3478 of Israel H7725 returned [H8799] H376 , every man H272 to his possession H5892 , into their own cities.
2 H3169 And Hezekiah H5975 appointed [H8686] H4256 the courses H3548 of the priests H3881 and the Levites H4256 after their courses H376 , every man H6310 according H5656 to his service H3548 , the priests H3881 and Levites H5930 for burnt offerings H8002 and for peace offerings H8334 , to minister [H8763] H3034 , and to give thanks [H8687] H1984 , and to praise [H8763] H8179 in the gates H4264 of the tents H3068 of the LORD.
3 H4428 He appointed also the king's H4521 portion H7399 of his substance H5930 for the burnt offerings H1242 , to wit, for the morning H6153 and evening H5930 burnt offerings H5930 , and the burnt offerings H7676 for the sabbaths H2320 , and for the new moons H4150 , and for the set feasts H3789 , as it is written [H8803] H8451 in the law H3068 of the LORD.
4 H559 Moreover he commanded [H8799] H5971 the people H3427 that dwelt [H8802] H3389 in Jerusalem H5414 to give [H8800] H4521 the portion H3548 of the priests H3881 and the Levites H2388 , that they might be encouraged [H8799] H8451 in the law H3068 of the LORD.
5 H1697 And as soon as the commandment H6555 came abroad [H8800] H1121 , the children H3478 of Israel H935 brought [H8689] H7235 in abundance [H8689] H7225 the firstfruits H1715 of corn H8492 , wine H3323 , and oil H1706 , and honey H8393 , and of all the increase H7704 of the field H4643 ; and the tithe H935 of all things brought [H8689] H7230 they in abundantly.
6 H1121 And concerning the children H3478 of Israel H3063 and Judah H3427 , that dwelt [H8802] H5892 in the cities H3063 of Judah H935 , they also brought in [H8689] H4643 the tithe H1241 of oxen H6629 and sheep H4643 , and the tithe H6944 of holy things H6942 which were consecrated [H8794] H3068 unto the LORD H430 their God H5414 , and laid [H8799] H6194 them by heaps H6194 .
7 H7992 In the third H2320 month H2490 they began [H8689] H3245 to lay the foundation [H8800] H6194 of the heaps H3615 , and finished [H8765] H7637 them in the seventh H2320 month.
8 H3169 And when Hezekiah H8269 and the princes H935 came [H8799] H7200 and saw [H8799] H6194 the heaps H1288 , they blessed [H8762] H3068 the LORD H5971 , and his people H3478 Israel.
9 H3169 Then Hezekiah H1875 questioned [H8799] H3548 with the priests H3881 and the Levites H6194 concerning the heaps.
10 H5838 And Azariah H7218 the chief H3548 priest H1004 of the house H6659 of Zadok H559 answered [H8799] H559 him, and said [H8799] H2490 , Since the people began [H8687] H935 to bring [H8687] H8641 the offerings H1004 into the house H3068 of the LORD H7646 , we have had enough [H8800] H398 to eat [H8800] H3498 , and have left [H8687] H7230 plenty H3068 : for the LORD H1288 hath blessed [H8765] H5971 his people H3498 ; and that which is left [H8737] H1995 is this great store.
11 H3169 Then Hezekiah H559 commanded [H8799] H3559 to prepare [H8687] H3957 chambers H1004 in the house H3068 of the LORD H3559 ; and they prepared [H8686] them,
12 H935 And brought in [H8686] H8641 the offerings H4643 and the tithes H6944 and the dedicated H530 things faithfully H3562 : over which Cononiah H3881 the Levite H5057 was ruler H8096 , and Shimei H251 his brother H4932 was the next.
13 H3171 And Jehiel H5812 , and Azaziah H5184 , and Nahath H6214 , and Asahel H3406 , and Jerimoth H3107 , and Jozabad H447 , and Eliel H3253 , and Ismachiah H4287 , and Mahath H1141 , and Benaiah H6496 , were overseers H3027 under the hand H3562 of Cononiah H8096 and Shimei H251 his brother H4662 , at the commandment H3169 of Hezekiah H4428 the king H5838 , and Azariah H5057 the ruler H1004 of the house H430 of God.
14 H6981 And Kore H1121 the son H3232 of Imnah H3881 the Levite H7778 , the porter H4217 toward the east H5071 , was over the freewill offerings H430 of God H5414 , to distribute [H8800] H8641 the oblations H3068 of the LORD H6944 , and the most H6944 holy things.
15 H5731 And next him were Eden H4509 , and Miniamin H3442 , and Jeshua H8098 , and Shemaiah H568 , Amariah H7935 , and Shecaniah H5892 , in the cities H3548 of the priests H530 , in their set office H5414 , to give [H8800] H251 to their brethren H3027 by H4256 courses H1419 , as well to the great H6996 as to the small:
16 H3187 Beside their genealogy [H8692] H2145 of males H7969 , from three H8141 years H1121 old H4605 and upward H935 , even unto every one that entereth [H8802] H1004 into the house H3068 of the LORD H3117 , his daily H3117 H1697 portion H5656 for their service H4931 in their charges H4256 according to their courses;
17 H3187 Both to the genealogy [H8692] H3548 of the priests H1004 by the house H1 of their fathers H3881 , and the Levites H6242 from twenty H8141 years H1121 old H4605 and upward H4931 , in their charges H4256 by their courses;
18 H3187 And to the genealogy [H8692] H2945 of all their little ones H802 , their wives H1121 , and their sons H1323 , and their daughters H6951 , through all the congregation H530 : for in their set office H6942 they sanctified [H8691] H6944 themselves in holiness:
19 H1121 Also of the sons H175 of Aaron H3548 the priests H7704 , which were in the fields H4054 of the suburbs H5892 of their cities H5892 , in every several city H582 , the men H5344 that were expressed [H8738] H8034 by name H5414 , to give [H8800] H4490 portions H2145 to all the males H3548 among the priests H3187 , and to all that were reckoned by genealogies [H8692] H3881 among the Levites.
20 H6213 And thus did [H8799] H3169 Hezekiah H3063 throughout all Judah H6213 , and wrought [H8799] H2896 that which was good H3477 and right H571 and truth H6440 before H3068 the LORD H430 his God.
