THE KING CHARGES THE L�VITES, AND THEY CLEANSE THE HOUSE OF GOD

(2Chronicles 29:3-19).

(3) In the first month--i.e., in the month Nisan, the first month of the sacred year; not in the first month of his reign. (Comp. 2Chronicles 29:17 and 2Chronicles 30:23.)

Opened the doors.--Which his father had closed (chap. 28:24).

And repaired them.--By overlaying them with metal--bronze or gold-leaf (2Kings 18:16). . . .

Verse 3. - In the first month; i.e. Nisan, the first month of the calendar year (see vers. 2, 13, 15 of next chapter), not simply the first month of the new king's reign. And repaired them. This repairing of Hezekiah was, unhappily, subsequently undone of his own hands (2 Kings 18:14-16).
