It is not to be carried around on your shoulders. Now serve the LORD your God and His people Israel.…

(2) Set the priests in their charges.--Literally, over their wards (2Chronicles 8:14). The king appointed them to discharge their proper duties in connection with the rite.

Encouraged them.--By exhortation and instruction. (See an instance in 2Chronicles 29:5 seq.)

Verse 2. - Comp. 2 Chronicles 7:6; 2 Chronicles 31:2; 1 Chronicles 23:32; and our notes in those places. 35:1-19 The destruction Josiah made of idolatry, was more largely related in the book of Kings. His solemnizing the passover is related here. The Lord's supper resembles the passover more than any other of the Jewish festivals; and the due observance of that ordinance, is a proof of growing piety and devotion. God alone can truly make our hearts holy, and prepare them for his holy services; but there are duties belonging to us, in doing which we obtain this blessing from the Lord.
