(7-9) The king and the grandees present the victims. (Comp. 2Chronicles 30:24.)

(7) Josiah gave.--As in 2Chronicles 30:24, presented as a heave-offering.

To the people.--To the sons of the people; i.e., the laity.

Of the flock.--Literally, small cattle, to wit, lambs and sons of goats.

All for the passover offerings--i.e., the thirty thousand small cattle.

Three thousand bullocks.--For the peace-offerings and the sacrificial feasting (2Chronicles 35:13).

The king's substance.--2Chronicles 31:3; 2Chronicles 32:29.

Verse 7. - Lambs... kids... bullocks. The variety of sacrificial offerings is specifically noticed in our ver. 13. While kids ("Ye shall take it out from the sheep or from the goats," Exodus 12:5) as well as lambs answered for the Paschal feast, the bullocks served for "burnt" and "peace offerings" (Numbers 28:16-25). And Josiah gave to the people, of the flock, lambs and kids, all for the passover offerings,.... Which be either lambs or kids of the goats, Exodus 12:5, for all that were present, to the number of 30,000; that is, 30,000 lambs or kids, which would serve 30,000 families:

and three thousand bullocks; these were for the "chagigah" or feast, kept on the day following the passover:

these were of the king's substance; taken out of his flocks and herds, or bought with his money, and liberally given to the people, to such poor families as could not afford well to be at the expense of such a festival. 7. Josiah gave to the people … lambs and kids—These were in all probability destined for the poor; a lamb or a kid might be used at convenience (Ex 12:5).

and … bullocks—which were offered after the lambs on each of the successive days of the feast.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.
