You don't need to carry it around on your shoulders anymore. Now serve the LORD your God and his people Israel.

It is not to be carried about on your shoulders. Now serve the LORD your God and his people Israel. CEB 4 Organize yourselves by families according to your divisions, as directed by Israel's King David and his son Solomon. NIV 4 Prepare yourselves by families in your divisions, according to the instructions written by David king of Israel and by his son Solomon.

It is not you I am attacking at this time, but the house with which I am at war. God has told me to hurry; so stop opposing God, who is with me, or he will destroy you.” CEB 22 But Josiah wouldn't turn back.
