2 Chronicles 35

  1 H2977 Moreover Josiah H6213 [H8799] kept H6453 a passover H3068 to the LORD H3389 in Jerusalem: H7819 [H8799] and they killed H6453 the passover H702 H6240 on the fourteenth H7223 day of the first H2320 month.
  2 H5975 [H8686] And he set H3548 the priests H4931 in their charges, H2388 [H8762] and encouraged H5656 them to the service H1004 of the house H3068 of the LORD,
  3 H559 [H8799] And said H3881 to the Levites H995 H4000 [H8688] that taught H3478 all Israel, H6918 who were holy H3068 to the LORD, H5414 [H8798] Put H6944 the holy H727 ark H1004 in the house H8010 which Solomon H1121 the son H1732 of David H4428 king H3478 of Israel H1129 [H8804] built; H4853 it shall not be a burden H3802 upon your shoulders: H5647 [H8798] serve H3068 now the LORD H430 your God, H5971 and his people H3478 Israel,
  4 H3559 H3559 [H8685] And prepare H1004 yourselves by the houses H1 of your fathers, H4256 after your courses, H3791 according to the writing H1732 of David H4428 king H3478 of Israel, H4385 and according to the writing H8010 of Solomon H1121 his son.
  5 H5975 [H8798] And stand in H6944 the holy H6391 place according to the divisions H1004 of the families H1 of the fathers H251 of your brethren H1121 H5971 the people, H2515 and after the division H1 H1004 of the families H3881 of the Levites.
  6 H7819 [H8798] So kill H6453 the passover, H6942 [H8690] and sanctify H3559 [H8685] yourselves, and prepare H251 your brethren, H6213 [H8800] that they may do H1697 according to the word H3068 of the LORD H3027 by the hand H4872 of Moses.
  7 H2977 And Josiah H7311 [H8686] gave H1121 H5971 to the people, H6629 of the flock, H3532 lambs H1121 H5795 and kids, H6453 all for the passover offerings, H4672 [H8737] for all that were present, H4557 to the number H7970 of thirty H505 thousand, H7969 and three H505 thousand H1241 cattle: H4428 these were of the king's H7399 substance.
  8 H8269 And his princes H7311 [H8689] gave H5071 willingly H5971 to the people, H3548 to the priests, H3881 and to the Levites: H2518 Hilkiah H2148 and Zechariah H3171 and Jehiel, H5057 rulers H1004 of the house H430 of God, H5414 [H8804] gave H3548 to the priests H6453 for the passover offerings H505 two thousand H8337 and six H3967 hundred H7969 small cattle, and three H3967 hundred H1241 oxen.
  9 H3562 Conaniah H8098 also, and Shemaiah H5417 and Nethaneel, H251 his brethren, H2811 and Hashabiah H3273 and Jeiel H3107 and Jozabad, H8269 chief H3881 of the Levites, H7311 [H8689] gave H3881 to the Levites H6453 for passover offerings H2568 five H505 thousand H2568 small cattle, and five H3967 hundred H1241 oxen.
  10 H5656 So the service H3559 [H8735] was prepared, H3548 and the priests H5975 [H8799] stood H5977 in their place, H3881 and the Levites H4256 in their courses, H4428 according to the king's H4687 commandment.
  11 H7819 [H8799] And they killed H6453 the passover, H3548 and the priests H2236 [H8799] sprinkled H3027 the blood from their hands, H3881 and the Levites H6584 [H8688] flayed them.
  12 H5493 [H8686] And they removed H5930 the burnt offerings, H5414 [H8800] that they might give H4653 according to the divisions H1 H1004 of the families H1121 H5971 of the people, H7126 [H8687] to offer H3068 to the LORD, H3789 [H8803] as it is written H5612 in the book H4872 of Moses. H1241 And so did they with the oxen.
  13 H1310 [H8762] And they roasted H6453 the passover H784 with fire H4941 according to the judgment: H6944 but the other holy H1310 [H8765] offerings they boiled H5518 in pots, H1731 and in caldrons, H6745 and in pans, H7323 [H8686] and divided them speedily H1121 H5971 among all the people.
  14 H310 And afterwards H3559 [H8689] they made ready H3548 for themselves, and for the priests: H3548 because the priests H1121 the sons H175 of Aaron H5927 [H8687] were busied in offering H5930 burnt offerings H2459 and the fat H3915 until night; H3881 therefore the Levites H3559 [H8689] prepared H3548 for themselves, and for the priests H1121 the sons H175 of Aaron.
  15 H7891 [H8789] And the singers H1121 the sons H623 of Asaph H4612 were in their place, H4687 according to the commandment H1732 of David, H623 and Asaph, H1968 and Heman, H3038 and Jeduthun H4428 the king's H2374 envisioner; H7778 and the porters H8179 waited at every gate; H5493 [H8800] they might not depart H5656 from their service; H251 for their brethren H3881 the Levites H3559 [H8689] prepared for them.
  16 H5656 So all the service H3068 of the LORD H3559 [H8735] was prepared H3117 the same day, H6213 [H8800] to keep H6453 the passover, H5927 [H8687] and to offer H5930 burnt offerings H4196 upon the altar H3068 of the LORD, H4687 according to the commandment H4428 of king H2977 Josiah.
  17 H1121 And the sons H3478 of Israel H4672 [H8737] that were present H6213 [H8799] kept H6453 the passover H6256 at that time, H2282 and the feast H4682 of unleavened bread H7651 seven H3117 days.
  18 H6453 And there was no passover H3644 like H6213 [H8738] that kept H3478 in Israel H3117 from the days H8050 of Samuel H5030 the prophet; H6213 [H8804] neither did H4428 all the kings H3478 of Israel H6213 [H8804] keep H6453 such a passover H2977 as Josiah H6213 [H8804] kept, H3548 and the priests, H3881 and the Levites, H3063 and all Judah H3478 and Israel H4672 [H8737] that were present, H3427 [H8802] and the inhabitants H3389 of Jerusalem.
  19 H8083 H6240 In the eighteenth H8141 year H4438 of the reign H2977 of Josiah H6453 was this passover H6213 [H8738] kept.
  20 H310 After H2977 all this, when Josiah H3559 [H8689] had prepared H1004 the house, H5224 Necho H4428 king H4714 of Egypt H5927 [H8804] came up H3898 [H8736] to fight H3751 against Carchemish H6578 by Euphrates: H2977 and Josiah H3318 [H8799] went out H7125 [H8800] against him.
  21 H7971 [H8799] But he sent H4397 messengers H559 [H8800] to him, saying, H4428 What have I to do with thee, thou king H3063 of Judah? H3117 I come not against thee this day, H1004 but against the house H4421 with which I have war: H430 for God H559 [H8804] commanded H926 [H8763] me to make haste: H2308 [H8798] forbear H430 thee from meddling with God, H7843 [H8686] who is with me, that he may not decay thee.
  22 H2977 Nevertheless Josiah H5437 [H8689] would not turn H6440 his face H2664 [H8694] from him, but disguised H3898 [H8736] himself, that he might fight H8085 [H8804] with him, and hearkened H1697 not to the words H5224 of Necho H6310 from the mouth H430 of God, H935 [H8799] and came H3898 [H8736] to fight H1237 in the valley H4023 of Megiddo.
  23 H3384 [H8802] And the archers H3384 [H8686] shot H4428 at king H2977 Josiah; H4428 and the king H559 [H8799] said H5650 to his servants, H5674 [H8685] Take me away; H3966 for I am grievously H2470 [H8717] wounded.
  24 H5650 His servants H5674 [H8686] therefore took H4818 him out of that chariot, H7392 [H8686] and put H4932 him in the second H7393 chariot H3212 [H8686] that he had; and they brought H3389 him to Jerusalem, H4191 [H8799] and he died, H6912 [H8735] and was buried H6913 in one of the burying-places H1 of his fathers. H3063 And all Judah H3389 and Jerusalem H56 [H8693] mourned H2977 for Josiah.
  25 H3414 And Jeremiah H6969 [H8787] lamented H2977 for Josiah: H7891 [H8802] and all the singing men H7891 [H8802] and the singing women H559 [H8799] have spoken H2977 of Josiah H7015 in their lamentations H3117 to this day, H5414 [H8799] and made H2706 them a statute H3478 in Israel: H3789 [H8803] and, behold, they are written H7015 in the lamentations.
  26 H3499 Now the rest H1697 of the acts H2977 of Josiah, H2617 and his mercies, H3789 [H8803] according to that which was written H8451 in the law H3068 of the LORD,
  27 H1697 And his deeds, H7223 first H314 and last, H3789 [H8803] behold, they are written H5612 in the book H4428 of the kings H3478 of Israel H3063 and Judah.
