2 Chronicles 35* The passover kept by Josiah. (1-19) Josiah slain in battle.(20-27)1-19 The destruction Josiah made of idolatry, was more largelyrelated in the book of Kings. His solemnizing the passover isrelated here. The Lord's supper resembles the passover more thanany other of the Jewish festivals; and the due observance ofthat ordinance, is a proof of growing piety and devotion. Godalone can truly make our hearts holy, and prepare them for hisholy services; but there are duties belonging to us, in doingwhich we obtain this blessing from the Lord. 20-27 The Scripture does not condemn Josiah's conduct inopposing Pharaoh. Yet Josiah seems to deserve blame for notinquiring of the Lord after he was warned; his death might be arebuke for his rashness, but it was a judgment on a hypocriticaland wicked people. He that lives a life of repentance, faith,and obedience, cannot be affected by the sudden manner in whichhe is removed. The people lamented him. Many mourn oversufferings, who will not forsake the sins that caused God tosend them. Yet this alone can turn away judgments. If we blameJosiah's conduct, we should be watchful, lest we be cut down ina way dishonourable to our profession.
