RF CH2 35:1 (623 B.C.) King Joshiah makes a Passover.
Josiah afterwards made a Passover to the EVER-LIVING in Jerusalem, and slew the Passover on the fourteenth day of the First month,
RF CH2 35:2 when he appointed the Priests in their duties, and exhorted them to the services of the House of the EVER-LIVING,
RF CH2 35:3 and commanded the Levites, to instruct all Israel about their duties to the LORD; and "To take the Holy Ark to the apartment that Solomon, the son of David, King of Israel had built. "Let it no more be borne on your shoulders.—Serve your EVER-LIVING GOD now, with the People of Israel;
RF CH2 35:4 and arrange yourselves by your Ancestral Houses, according to your Divisions, as recorded by David King of Israel, and by the records of his son Solomon,
RF CH2 35:5 and attend to your duty by sections of Ancestral Houses, with your brothers, the sons of the People, and the Divisions of the Ancestral Houses of the Levites.
RF CH2 35:6 So kill the Passover, and consecrate yourselves, and unite with your brothers to practice the Command of the EVER LIVING, sent by the Hand of Moses."
RF CH2 35:7 Joshiah gives a free Passover.
Joshiah then gave to the Children of his People lambs from the sheep, and young goats, for the Passover, to all present, to the number of thirty thousand, and three thousand oxen. These were the private property of the King.
RF CH2 35:8 The Gifts of his Ministers.
And his Ministers gave of free will to the People, the Priests, and the Levites, Hilkihu, and Zekarihu, and Jekhial, the Leaders of the House of GOD, they gave to the Priests for their Passover two thousand and six hundred (lambs), and three hundred oxen.
RF CH2 35:9 Konenihu and Shimihu, and Nathanal, his brother, and Khashabihu, and Javal, and Jozabad, nobles of the Levites, gave to the Levites for their Passover, five thousand (lambs), and five hundred oxen.
RF CH2 35:10 Thus the Service was prepared, and the Priests appointed, and the Levites in their Divisions, according to the order of the King.
RF CH2 35:11 And they killed the Passover. Then the Priests sprinkled from their hands, and the Levites stripped,
RF CH2 35:12 and removed the Burnt-offering that had to be presented by the Sections of Ancestral Houses of the Children of the People, and approached the EVER-LIVING, as prescribed in the Book of Moses. And the same with the oxen.
RF CH2 35:13 They then roasted the Passover with fire, as Decreed, and boiled the Consecrations in boilers and cauldrons, and pans, and distributed to all the Children of the People;
RF CH2 35:14 and afterwards prepared for themselves, and for the Priests, because the Priests, the Descendants of Aaron, were offering Burnt-offerings from the Dawn until night. So the Levites prepared for themselves, and for the Descendants of Aaron.
RF CH2 35:15 The Choir Restored.
The Singers, also, the Descendants of Asaph, and Heman, and Jeduthun, the Royal Seer, and the Door-Keepers from Gate to Gate, who could not themselves go away from their duty, like their brothers,—the Levites prepared for them.
RF CH2 35:16 They also prepared for all the Services of the EVER-LIVING on that day, in making the Passover, and offering the Burnt-offerings, upon the Altar of the LORD, as King Joshiah commanded.
RF CH2 35:17 Thus the Children of Israel who were present at that time made the Passover, and the Feast of Unfermented Bread for seven days.
RF CH2 35:18 No Passover like this was made in Israel from the days of Samuel the Preacher, by all the Kings of Israel. They did not make a Passover such as Joshiah made, with the Priests and Levites, and all Judah and Israel present, with the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
RF CH2 35:19 Joshiah made this Passover in the eighteenth year of his reign.
RF CH2 35:20 (610 B.C.) Pharoh Neko Invades Judea.
After all this when Joshiah had repaired the Temple, Neko, King of the Mitzeraim came up to attack Karkemish on the Frath,1 but Joshiah went out to oppose him.
RF CH2 35:21 When he sent Messengers to ask, "What is there between you and I, King of Judah?—I have not prepared to-day against you, but against the House I am at war with, and GOD commanded me to make haste.—Restrain yourself from opposing GOD Who is with me, and He will not destroy you."
RF CH2 35:22 Joshiah, however, would not turn from opposing him, but determined to fight, and would not listen to the statements of Neko from the mouth of the EVER-LIVING, but went to battle with him on the plain of Megiddo,
RF CH2 35:23 where the Archers shot King Joshiah. So the King said to his servants, "Take me to the rear;—for I am badly wounded!"
1 Euphrates.
RF CH2 35:24 His servants consequently took him to the rear from amongst the chariots, and placed him on another chariot he had, and they carried him to Jerusalem, where he died, and was buried in the Tombs of his fathers. But all Judea and Jerusalem mourned over Joshiah.
RF CH2 35:25 Jeremiah also lamented over Joshiah, and all the Men and Women Singers speak in their Laments of Joshiah to this day, and they are remembered in Israel, and can be seen written in the Elegies.
RF CH2 35:26 For the rest of the events of Joshiah, and his piety in accordance to the Written Laws of the EVER-LIVING,
RF CH2 35:27 and his Speeches, the first and the last, are recorded in the Records of the Kings of Israel and Judah.
