2 Chronicles 29:34
But the priests were too few, so that they could not flay all the burnt offerings: wherefore their brethren the Levites did help them, till the work was ended, and until the other priests had sanctified themselves: for the Levites were more upright in heart to sanctify themselves than the priests.









(24) Did give . . . gave.--Had presented (Exodus 35:24)--scil., for sacrifice as a t?r-m?h, or "heave offering." The gifts of king and princes for the Mazzoth festival were so abundant that they sufficed not only for the feast itself, but also for an additional week of rejoicing.

And a great number of priests.--Literally, and priests had sanctified themselves in multitude, or to abundance. The priests no longer hung back as they had done previously (2Chronicles 30:3; 2Chronicles 30:15; 2Chronicles 29:34). There was now no lack of persons duly purified for the sacrifice of so many victims.

Verse 24. - Did give. This is an inadequate rendering. Revised Version reads, did give for offerings; others read, "gave as an heave offering." In the light of our 2 Chronicles 35:7-9, the Revised Version rendering seems sufficient.
