3. Revelation -establishment of proper worship31:2-21
The king organized the priests and Levites again into the divisions David had specified. Evidently Hezekiah"s predecessors had not observed these divisions. He also instituted tithing again as the Mosaic Law commanded (cf. Leviticus 27:30; Numbers 18:8; Deuteronomy 14:28). Because the people responded obediently, there was an abundance of money for temple maintenance and for its servants ( 2 Chronicles 31:10). The principle these reforms illustrate is that when God"s people obey His Word, they prosper (in some form). God always desires people"s welfare. Hezekiah prospered, too ( 2 Chronicles 31:21), because he sought God with all his heart, as David had done. In New Testament terms, he did all for the glory of God ( 1 Corinthians 10:31).
