And the priests killed them
The seven he goats; for of the killing of the bullocks, rams, and lambs, mention is made before, ( 2 Chronicles 29:2 ) and they made reconciliation with their blood upon the altar, to make
atonement for all Israel;
typical of the reconciliation and atonement made for the whole spiritual Israel of God by the sacrifice of Christ: for the king commanded that the burnt offering, and the sin offering,
should be made for all Israel;
not only for the tribes of Judah and Benjamin, and for as many of the rest of the tribes as were come over to them, and dwelt among them; but even for the ten tribes also, sadly guilty of idolatry, and for whose reformation and good this pious prince was concerned, see ( 2 Chronicles 30:1 ) .
