2 Chronicles 30:25
And all the congregation of Judah, with the priests and
The people that were gathered together out of the several cities of Judah, which no doubt was the largest congregation, with whom the priests and Levites are joined, as being of that kingdom, and dwellers in Jerusalem, where their office lay:
and all the congregation that came out of Israel;
out of the ten tribes, particularly Ephraim, Manasseh, Issachar, and Zebulun, ( 2 Chronicles 30:18 ) , and the strangers that came out of the land of Israel, and that dwelt in Judah, rejoiced; the proselytes, even such as were circumcised, who ate of the passover, and kept the feast of unleavened bread, as well as the other days of rejoicing, the former of which none might partake of but circumcised persons; and it can hardly be thought that any other would come out of Israel on such an occasion, see ( Exodus 12:48 ) .
