And the Levitesstood with the instruments of David, and the priests with the trumpets.27
And Hezekiahcommanded to offer the burnt offering upon the altar. And whena the burnt offeringbegan , the song of the LORDbegan also with the trumpets, and with the instruments ordained byDavidking of Israel.28
And all the congregationworshipped , and the singersbsang , and the trumpeterssounded : and all this continued until the burnt offering was finished .
And when they had made an end of offering , the king and all that were presentc with him bowed themselves, and worshipped .
Moreover Hezekiah the king and the princescommanded the Levites to sing praise unto the LORD with the words of David, and of Asaph the seer. And they sang praises with gladness, and they bowed their heads and worshipped .
Then Hezekiahanswered and said , Now ye have consecratedd yourselves unto the LORD, come near and bringsacrifices and thank offerings into the house of the LORD. And the congregation brought insacrifices and thank offerings; and as many as were of a freeheart burnt offerings.32
And the number of the burnt offerings, which the congregationbrought , was threescore and tenbullocks, an hundredrams, and two hundredlambs: all these were for a burnt offering to the LORD.33
And the consecrated things were sixhundredoxen and threethousandsheep.34
But the priests were too few, so that they could not flay all the burnt offerings: wherefore their brethren the Levites did helpe them, till the work was ended , and until the other priests had sanctified themselves: for the Levites were more upright in heart to sanctify themselves than the priests.35
And also the burnt offerings were in abundance, with the fat of the peace offerings, and the drink offerings for every burnt offering. So the service of the house of the LORD was set in order .
And Hezekiahrejoiced , and all the people, that God had prepared the people: for the thing was done suddenly.
