2 Chronicles 34:31  (King James Version)
And the king stood in his place, and made a covenant before the LORD, to walk after the LORD, and to keep his commandments, and his testimonies, and his statutes, with all his heart, and with all his soul, to perform the words of the covenant which are written in this book.

In his place
Instead of {l mdo,} "in his place," the parallel passage 2 ; Ki 23:3 has {l hmmood,} "by the pillar;" which is
probably the true reading, as the LXX. in both places read [ton stylon,] "the pillar." 6:13 2 Kings 11:4 ; 23:3 Ezekiel 46:2

made a covenant
This was expressed, 1. In general, To walk after Jehovah; to have no gods beside him
2. To take this law for the regulation of their conduct
3. In particular, To bend their whole heart and soul to the performance of it; so that they might not only have religion without, but piety within.
