2 Chronicles 35:10-20 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
10 So the service was prepared, and 1the priests stood at their stations and the Levites by their divisions according to the king's command. 11 a2They slaughtered the Passover animals, and while 3the priests sprinkled bthe blood received from their hand, 4the Levites skinned them. 12 Then they removed the burnt offerings that they might give them to the sections of the fathers' households of the lay people to present to the LORD, as it is written in the book of Moses. They did this also with the bulls. 13 So 5they roasted the Passover animals on the fire according to the ordinance, and they boiled 6the holy things in pots, in kettles, in pans, and carried them speedily to all the lay people. 14 Afterwards they prepared for themselves and for the priests, because the priests, the sons of Aaron, were offering the burnt offerings and the fat until night; therefore the Levites prepared for themselves and for the priests, the sons of Aaron. 15 The singers, the sons of Asaph, were also at their stations 7according to the command of David, Asaph, Heman, and Jeduthun the king's seer; and 8the gatekeepers at each gate did not have to depart from their service, because the Levites their brethren prepared for them. 16 So all the service of the LORD was prepared on that day to celebrate the Passover, and to offer burnt offerings on the altar of the LORD according to the command of King Josiah. 17 Thus 9the sons of Israel who were present celebrated the Passover at that time, and the Feast of Unleavened Bread seven days. 18 10There had not been celebrated a Passover like it in Israel since the days of Samuel the prophet; nor had any of the kings of Israel celebrated such a Passover as Josiah did with the priests, the Levites, all Judah and Israel who were present, and the inhabitants of Jerusalem. 19 In the eighteenth year of Josiah's reign this Passover was celebrated.
