A King and His People – 2 Chronicles 34:31

Welcome to Scriptures for Life with TorahFamily.org. Taking time to focus on the Father’s way.

2 Chronicles 34:31
The king stood by his pillar and renewed the covenant in the presence of YHWH – to follow YHWH and keep his commands, regulations and decrees with all his heart and all his soul, and to obey the words of the covenant written in this book.

King Josiah was a king that turned Israel around. We discuss his actions in bringing Israel back to YHWH much in our teaching titled “Extreme Makeover.” But what I like about this event is that it wasn’t just the King who rededicated himself to YHWH. Listen to the previous couple of verses.

2 Chronicles. 34:29-30
Then the king called together all the elders of Judah and Jerusalem. He went up to the temple of YHWH with the men of Judah, the people of Jerusalem, the priests and the Levites — all the people from the least to the greatest. He read in their hearing all the words of the Book of the Covenant, which had been found in the temple of YHWH.

It was everyone. Though we may not be able to make others do something, may we never be found to be one who is not willing to rededicate ourselves unto YHWH.

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until next time, Shalom.

Here's something interesting to consider:
