2 Chronicles 29:31 (King James Version)
Then Hezekiah answered and said, Now ye have consecrated yourselves unto the LORD, come near and bring sacrifices and thank offerings into the house of the LORD. And the congregation brought in sacrifices and thank offerings; and as many as were of a free heart burnt offerings.
- consecrated yourselves
- or, filled your hand.
- Leviticus 1:1-3:17
- Leviticus 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.
