From 2nd Kings Chapter 22
Josiah was eight years old when he began to reign, and he reigned thirty
and one years in Jerusalem. And his mother's name was Jedidah, the
daughter of Adaiah of Boscath.
22:2 And he did that which was right in the sight of the LORD, and
walked in all the way of David his father, and turned not aside to the
right hand or to the left.
22:3 And it came to pass in the eighteenth year of king Josiah, that the
king sent Shaphan the son of Azaliah, the son of Meshullam, the scribe,
to the house of the LORD, saying,
22:4 Go up to Hilkiah the high priest, that he may sum the silver which
is brought into the house of the LORD, which the keepers of the door
have gathered of the people:
22:5 And let them deliver it into the hand of the doers of the work,
that have the oversight of the house of the LORD: and let them give it
to the doers of the work which is in the house of the LORD, to repair
the breaches of the house,
22:6 Unto carpenters, and builders, and masons, and to buy timber and
hewn stone to repair the house.
22:7 Howbeit there was no reckoning made with them of the money that was
delivered into their hand, because they dealt faithfully.
22:8 And Hilkiah the high priest said unto Shaphan the scribe, I have
found the book of the law in the house of the LORD. And Hilkiah gave the
book to Shaphan, and he read it.
22:9 And Shaphan the scribe came to the king, and brought the king word
again, and said, Thy servants have gathered the money that was found in
the house, and have delivered it into the hand of them that do the work,
that have the oversight of the house of the LORD.
22:10 And Shaphan the scribe showed the king, saying, Hilkiah the priest
hath delivered me a book. And Shaphan read it before the king.
22:11 And it came to pass, when the king had heard the words of the book
of the law, that he rent his clothes.
22:12 And the king commanded Hilkiah the priest, and Ahikam the son of
Shaphan, and Achbor the son of Michaiah, and Shaphan the scribe, and
Asahiah a servant of the king's, saying,
22:13 Go ye, enquire of the LORD for me, and for the people, and for all
Judah, concerning the words of this book that is found: for great is the
wrath of the LORD that is kindled against us, because our fathers have
not hearkened unto the words of this book, to do according unto all that
which is written concerning us.
22:14 So Hilkiah the priest, and Ahikam, and Achbor, and Shaphan, and
Asahiah, went unto Huldah the prophetess, the wife of Shallum the son of
Tikvah, the son of Harhas, keeper of the wardrobe; (now she dwelt in
Jerusalem in the college;) and they communed with her.
22:15 And she said unto them, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Tell
the man that sent you to me,
22:16 Thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will bring evil upon this place,
and upon the inhabitants thereof, even all the words of the book which
the king of Judah hath read:
22:17 Because they have forsaken me, and have burned incense unto other
gods, that they might provoke me to anger with all the works of their
hands; therefore my wrath shall be kindled against this place, and shall
not be quenched.
22:18 But to the king of Judah which sent you to enquire of the LORD,
thus shall ye say to him, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, As touching
the words which thou hast heard;
22:19 Because thine heart was tender, and thou hast humbled thyself
before the LORD, when thou heardest what I spake against this place, and
against the inhabitants thereof, that they should become a desolation
and a curse, and hast rent thy clothes, and wept before me; I also have
heard thee, saith the LORD.
22:20 Behold therefore, I will gather thee unto thy fathers, and thou
shalt be gathered into thy grave in peace; and thine eyes shall not see
all the evil which I will bring upon this place. And they brought the
king word again.
Go ye therefore, and teach
all nations, baptizing them in
the name of the Father, and of
the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
