2 Chronicles 35:7 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

2 Chronicles 35:1 contains the superscription-like statement, that Josiah held a passover to the Lord; and they held the passover in the 14th day of the first month, consequently at the time fixed in the law. It happened otherwise under Hezekiah (2 Chronicles 30:2, 2 Chronicles 30:13, and 2 Chronicles 30:15). With 2 Chronicles 35:2 commences the description of the festival: and first we have the preparations, the appointment of the priests and Levites to perform the various services connected with the festival (2 Chronicles 35:2-6), and the procuring of the necessary beasts for sacrifice (2 Chronicles 35:10-15); then the offering of the sacrifices and the preparation of the meals (2 Chronicles 35:10-15); and finally the characterization of the whole festival (2 Chronicles 35:16-19).
