2 Chronicles 30:6 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

Hezekiah and the whole people rejoiced because of it. ההכין על, over that which God had prepared for the people (by the purification of the temple and the restoration of the Jahve worship), not "because God had made the people ready" (Ramb., Berth.). The article with הכין represents the relative pronoun אשׁר; see on 1 Chronicles 26:28. The joy was heightened by the fact that the thing was done suddenly.
