    1 Hezekiah's good reign. 3 He restores religion. 5 He exhorts the Levites. 12 They sanctify themselves, and cleanse the house of God 20 Hezekiah offers solemn sacrifices, wherein the Levites are more forward than the priests. VERSE 1 - A.M. 3278-3306. B.C. 726-698. Hezekiah. * 2Ki 18:1-3 1Ch 3:13 Isa 1:1 Ho 1:1 Mic 1:1 Mt 1:9,10 - Ezekias. Zechariah. * 2Ch 26:5 Isa 8:2 VERSE 2 - 1 28:1 2 34:2 2Ki 18:3 Of several of Hezekiah's predecessors it had been said that they did that which was right, but not like David, that is, not with David's integrity and zeal. VERSE 3 - A.M. 3278. B.C. 726. He in the first. * 2Ch 34:3 Ps 101:3 Ec 9:10 Mt 6:33 Ga 1:16 - opened. * :7; 28:24 2Ki 16:14-18 VERSE 4 - east street. * 2Ch 32:6 Ne 3:29 Jer 19:2 VERSE 5 - sanctify now. * 2Ch 35:6 Ex 19:10,15 1Ch 15:12 - sanctify the house. * :16; 34:3-8 Eze 36:25 Mt 21:12,13 1Co 3:16,17 2Co 6:16; 7:1 * Eph 5:26,27 - carry forth. * Eze 8:3,9-18 VERSE 6 - For our fathers. * 2Ch 28:2-4,23-25; 34:21 Ezr 5:12; 9:7 Ne 9:16,32 Jer 16:19; 44:21 * La 5:7 Da 9:16 Mt 10:37; 23:30-32 - have forsaken him. * Jer 2:13,17 - turned away. * Jer 2:27 Eze 8:16 - turned their backs. Heb. given the neck. VERSE 7 Those, says Matthew Henry, who turn their backs upon God's ordinances, may truly be said to forsake God himself. The lamps were not lighted, and incense was not burnt: there are still such neglects as these, and they are no less culpable, if the Word be not duly read and opened, answering to the lighting of the lamps, and if prayers and praises be not duly offered up, which was signified by the burning of incense. * :3; 28:24 Le 24:2-8 2Ki 16:17,18 Mal 1:10 VERSE 8 - Wherefore. * 2Ch 24:18; 34:24,25; 36:14-16 De 28:15-20 - he hath delivered. It is probable Hezekiah refers to that dreadful defeat by the Israelites, in which one hundred and twenty thousand were slain, and two hundred thousand taken prisoners: see ch. 6 28:6-8. - trouble. Heb. commotion. * De 28:25 - to astonishment. * Le 26:32 De 28:59 1Ki 9:8 Jer 18:15,16; 19:8; 25:9,18; 29:18 VERSE 9 - our fathers. * 2Ch 28:5-8,17 Le 26:17 La 5:7 VERSE 10 - Now it is. * 2Ch 6:7,8 - to make a covenant. To renew that covenant under which the whole people were constantly considered, and of which circumcision was the sign, and the spirit of which was, "I will be your God, ye shall be my people." * 2Ch 15:12,13; 23:16; 34:30-32 Ezr 10:3 Ne 9:38; 10:1-39 Jer 34:15,18 * Jer 50:5 2Co 8:5 - that his fierce. * 2Ki 23:3,26 VERSE 11 - negligent. or, deceived. * Ga 6:7,8 - the Lord * Nu 3:6-9; 8:6-14; 18:2-6 De 10:8 - burn incense. or, offer sacrifice. * Nu 16:35-40; 18:7 VERSE 12 - Kohathites. * Ex 6:16-25 Nu 4:2-20 1Ch 6:16-18; 15:5; 23:12-20 - of the sons. * 1Ch 6:16-18; 15:5; 23:12-20 - of the sons. * 1Ch 6:19,44; 15:6; 23:21-23 - of the Gershonites. * 1Ch 6:17,20,21; 15:7; 23:7-11 VERSE 13 - Elizaphan. * Le 10:4 - Elzaphan. * 1Ch 15:8 - Asaph. * 1Ch 6:39; 15:17; 25:2 VERSE 14 - Heman. * 1Ch 6:33; 15:19 - Jeduthun. * 1Ch 25:1,3,6 VERSE 15 - sanctified themselves. * :5 - by the words of the Lord. or, in the business of the Lord. * 2Ch 30:12 - to cleanse. * 1Ch 23:28 VERSE 16 - the priests. The priests and Levites cleansed first the courts both of the priests and of the people. On this labor they spent eight days. Then they cleansed the interior of the temple; but, as the Levites had no right to enter the temple, the priests carried all the dirt and rubbish to the porch, whence they were collected by the Levites, carried away, and cast into the brook Kidron: in this work, eight more days were occupied; and thus the temple was purified in sixteen days. - the inner part. * 2Ch 3:8; 5:7 Ex 26:33,34 1Ki 6:19,20 Heb 9:2-8,23,24 - all the uncleanness. * Eze 36:29 Mt 21:12,13; 23:27 - Kidron. * 2Ch 15:16 2Ki 23:4-6 Joh 18:1 - Cedron.

Or, as the LXX., Vulgate, and Targum read, "did pollute," {hizneeach,} he rendered them so abominable that they were rejected with abhorrence. VERSE 20 - rose. * Ge 22:3 Ex 24:4 Jos 6:12 Jer 25:4 VERSE 21 - they brought. The law only required one bullock for the sins of the high priest, another for the sins of the people, and one he-goat for the sins of the prince: but Hezekiah offered many more, and the reason appears sufficiently evident: the law only speaks of the sins of ignorance, but here there were sins of every dye, idolatry, apostasy from the Divine worship, profanation of the temple, etc., etc. The sin offerings, we are informed, were offered, first, for the Kingdom, for the transgressions of the king and his family; secondly, for the sanctuary, which had been defiled and polluted; and for the priests, who had been profane, negligent, and unholy; and finally, for Judah, for the whole mass of the people, who had been led away into every kind of abomination by the above examples. - seven. * Nu 23:1,14,29 1Ch 15:26 Ezr 8:35 Job 42:8 Eze 45:23 - a sin offering. * Le 4:3-14 Nu 15:22-24 2Co 5:21 VERSE 22 - sprinkled. * Le 1:5; 4:7,18,34; 8:14,15,19,24 Heb 9:21,22 VERSE 23 - forth.

Heb. by the hand of the Lord, by the hand of his prophets.

Heb. found. bowed themselves. * 2Ch 20:18 1Ch 29:20 Ps 72:11 Ro 14:11 Php 2:10,11 VERSE 30 - with the words. * 2Sa 23:1,2 1Ch 16:7-36 - they sang. * Ps 32:11; 33:1; 95:1,2,6; 100:1,2; 149:2 Php 4:4 VERSE 31 - consecrated yourselves. or, filled your hand. * 2Ch 13:9 - sacrifices. * Le 1:1-3:17 - thank. * Le 7:12 - and as many, etc. As the burnt offerings were wholly consumed on the altar, the offering of them evinced greater zeal and liberality than the oblation of peace offerings, the greater part of which was eaten by the officer and his friends. * Le 1:3; 23:38 Ezr 1:4 VERSE 32 - the number. Comparing the sacrifices offered on this occasion with those of Solomon at the dedication of the temple, we may form some idea of the decrease of the prosperity and riches of Judah, or of the decline of the general spirit of piety. * 1Ki 3:4; 8:63 1Ch 29:21 Ezr 6:17 VERSE 33 - the consecrated. It is probable that the consecrated things denote the peace offerings and thank offerings. * :31 VERSE 34 - the priests. Peace offerings, and such like, the Levites might flay and dress; but the whole burnt offerings could only be touched by the priests, except in a case of necessity, such as the present. * :5; 30:16,17 - their brethren. * 2Ch 35:11 Nu 8:15,19; 18:3,6,7 - did help them.

Both Hezekiah and the people rejoiced, that God had prepared the hearts of the people to bring about so great and glorious a reformation in so short a time. This good king's example and influence were here, as in many other cases, under God, the grand spring of all those mighty movements. * 1Ch 29:9,17 Ezr 6:22 1Th 3:8,9 - God. * 2Ch 30:12 1Ch 29:18 Ps 10:17 Pr 16:1 - the thing. * Ac 2:41 GOTO NEXT CHAPTER - TREASURY OF SCRIPTURE KNOWLEDGE INDEX
