EXPOSITORY (ENGLISH BIBLE)And also the burnt offerings were in abundance.—Another reason why the Levites helped the priests: the latter were so much occupied with the actual service of the altar.
And the drink offerings.—Numbers 15:1-16.2 Kings 16:10-16. He and many of the priests may, therefore, have looked coldly on the reforming zeal of Hezekiah.
for the Levites were more upright in heart to sanctify themselves than the priests—that is, displayed greater alacrity than the priests.

Thus was the newly consecrated temple reopened to the no small joy of the pious king and all the people.And also the burnt-offerings were in abundance; or,
for the burnt-offerings were to be offered also in abundance. So it is a reason why the priests could not flay all the burnt-offerings, as was said, 2 Chronicles 29:34, because there was so much other work for them; for the burnt-offerings were not only to be flayed, but also to be offered, to wit, wholly, and with them
the fat of peace-offerings, & c. And also the burnt offerings were in abundance, with the fat of the peace offerings, and the drink offerings for every burnt offering. So the service of the house of the LORD was set in order.
