SEV Biblia, Chapter 30:1 Â¶ Envió también Ezequías por todo Israel y Judá, y escribió letras a Efraín y Manasés, que viniesen a Jerusalén a la Casa del SEÑOR, para celebrar la pascua al SEÑOR Dios de Israel.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Chronicles 30:1 Verse 1. Hezekiah sent to all Israel] It is not easy to find out how this was permitted by the king of Israel; but it is generally allowed that Hoshea, who then reigned over Israel, was one of their best kings. And as the Jews allow that at this time both the golden calves had been carried away by the Assyrians,-that at Dan by Tiglath-pileser, and that at Bethel by Shalmaneser,-the people who chose to worship Jehovah at Jerusalem were freely permitted to do it, and Hezekiah had encouragement to make the proclamation in question.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 1. And Hezekiah sent to all Israel and Judah , etc.] Sent messengers to them, not only to the subjects of his own kingdom, Judah, but to all the Israelites that dwelt in it, who were come thither for the sake of religion, and the worship of God: and wrote letters also to Ephraim and Manasseh ; which are put for all the ten tribes, as appears from ( 2 Chronicles 30:10,11) and are distinguished from Israel in the preceding clause: that they should come to the house of the Lord at Jerusalem ; not that he laid his commands upon them to come, they not being his subjects, namely, those of the ten tribes; but he hereby admonished them of their duty, and gave them a kind invitation, signifying the doors of the temple were open for them, and they were welcome to come thither: to keep the passover unto the Lord God of Israel ; to the glory of his name, who was the common Lord of them all, and whose command it was to keep the passover, and that at Jerusalem, and nowhere else, (see Deuteronomy 16:1-6).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-12 - Hezekiah made Israel as welcome to the passover, as any of his ow subjects. Let us yield ourselves unto the Lord. Say not, you will do what you please, but resolve to do what he pleases. We perceive in the carnal mind a stiffness, an obstinacy, an unaptness to compel with God we have it from our fathers: this must be overcome. Those who, throug grace, have turned to God themselves, should do all they can to brin others to him. Numbers will be scorners, but some will be humbled an benefited; perhaps where least expected. The rich mercy of God is the great argument by which to enforce repentance; the vilest who submi and yield themselves to the Lord, seek his grace, and give themselve to his service, shall certainly be saved. Oh that messengers were sen forth to carry these glad tidings to every city and every village through every land!
