was set in order
2 Chronicles 29:35
29:35 was set in order. Thus, in fairly short order (“suddenly”—II Chronicles 29:36), the temple had been opened and cleansed, the priests and Levites restored to their God-ordained service, and the regular temple worship activities restored. It was no doubt because of Hezekiah’s zeal in reviving the prescribed worship activities that God preserved Judah’s independence for another century. At this time, the Assyrians were destroying and devastating the ten-tribe northern kingdom.
