Then the king and everyone with him bowed down in worship.
King Hezekiah and the officials ordered the Levites to praise the LORD with the psalms written by David and by Asaph the seer. So they offered joyous praise and bowed down in worship.
Then Hezekiah declared, “Now that you have consecrated yourselves to the LORD, bring your sacrifices and thanksgiving offerings to the Temple of the LORD .” So the people brought their sacrifices and thanksgiving offerings, and all whose hearts were willing brought burnt offerings, too.
The people brought to the LORD 70 bulls, 100 rams, and 200 male lambs for burnt offerings.
They also brought 600 cattle and 3,000 sheep and goats as sacred offerings.
But there were too few priests to prepare all the burnt offerings. So their relatives the Levites helped them until the work was finished and more priests had been purified, for the Levites had been more conscientious about purifying themselves than the priests had been.
There was an abundance of burnt offerings, along with the usual liquid offerings, and a great deal of fat from the many peace offerings. So the Temple of the LORD was restored to service.
And Hezekiah and all the people rejoiced because of what God had done for the people, for everything had been accomplished so quickly.
