Then Hezekiah answered and said
Or proceeded to say, as follows: now ye have consecrated yourselves unto the Lord;
having entered anew on the performance of their office, filling their hands with sacrifices, as the words signify: come near, and bring sacrifices and thank offerings into the house of
which the people were to put into their hands to offer for them: and the congregation brought in sacrifices and thank offerings;
peace offerings, part of which the offerers had to feast on with their friends so expressing their joy and thankfulness on this occasion: and as many as were of a free heart burnt offerings;
of which they had no share, but were wholly the Lord's; and which was a greater proof of their liberality, and so of their sincere and cordial thankfulness.
