      1  Josiah keeps a most solemn passover.
    20  He provoking Pharaoh-necho, is slain at Megiddo.
    25  Lamentations for Josiah.
    
    
    VERSE 1
    - Josiah.
      The whole solemnity was performed with great exactness
      according to the law, and upon that account there was none
      like it since Samuel's time; for even in Hezekiah's passover
      there were several irregularities.  Bp. Patrick observes, that
      in this also it exceeded the other passovers which preceding
      things had kept, that though Josiah was by no means so rich as
      David, or Solomon, or Jehoshaphat, yet he furnished the
      congregation with beasts for sacrifice, both passover and
      eucharistical, at his own proper cost and charge, which was
      more than any king ever did before.
    
       * 2Ch 30:1-27 2Ki 23:21-23
    - the fourteenth.
       * Ex 12:6 Nu 9:3 De 16:1-8 Ezr 6:19 Eze 45:21
      Josiah's solemnization of the passover, which is merely
      alluded to at 2 Ki 21 23:21, is very particularly related her,
      while the destruction of idolatry is largely related in the
      Kings, and here only touched upon.  The feasts of the Lord
      God, appointed by the ceremonial law, were very numerous; but
      the passover was the chief.  It was the first which was
      solemnized in the night wherein Israel came out of Egypt, and
      ushered in those which were afterwards instituted:  and it was
      the last great feast which was held in the night wherein
      Christ was betrayed, before the vail of the temple was rent in
      twain.  Be means of this feast, both Josiah and Hezekiah
      revived religion in their day.
    
    
    VERSE 2 
     - charges.

    VERSE 4 
     - the houses.
       * 1Ch 9:10-34 Ne 11:10-20
    - after your courses.
      The regulations formed by David, and established by Solomon,
      concerning the courses of the priests and Levites, were
      committed to writing, and preserved, for them to refer to
      continually.  Josiah, as well as Hezekiah, required the
      priests and Levites to attend to their several duties, and
      encouraged them therein, but he neither added, altered, not
      retrenched anything:  he merely enforced what had been
      established in the law, and in the regulations made by David
      and the contemporary prophets:  "the commandment of the
      king....was by the word of the Lord."

     - Nevertheless.
      Josiah's conduct in this affair has been treated with great
      severity; and he has been charged with engaging rashly in an
      unjust war, and disregarding the express command of God.  But
      Scripture no where condemns him; and Pharaoh, in marching
      through Josiah's territories, against his will, certainly
      committed an act of hostility.  It is evident that Josiah was
      in possession of the whole land of Israel (ch. 6 26:6); and
      probably he held the northern parts of it as a grant from the
      king of Babylon; and was not only in alliance with him, but
      bound to guard his frontiers against hostile invaders.  He
      may, therefore, be fairly justified from the charge of
      unjustly meddling in a war that did not belong him.  It is
      true the ambassadors assured Josiah, that "God had commanded
      Pharaoh to make haste;" and he is therefore said not to have
      "hearkened to the words of Necho, from the mouth of God." But
      Necho produced no proof that he was a prophet of Jehovah; and
      the word he employed, {elohim,} may denote gods or idols; and
      critics have noticed that the expression, "from the mouth of
      God," is not used when the true God is meant.
