2 Chronicles 23:16 - 23:19

Jehoiada Cuts a Covenant

16 Then Jehoiada cut a covenant between himself and all the people and the king, that they would be the people of Yahweh.
17 And all the people came to the house of Baal and tore it down, and his altars and his images they broke in pieces, and they killed Mattan the priest of Baal before the altars. 18 And Jehoiada placed the assignments concerning the house of Yahweh in the hand of the Levitical priests, whom David had divided by lot to be over the house of Yahweh, to offer the burnt offerings of Yahweh, as it is written in the law of Moses—with gladness and singing according to the order of David. 19 And he caused the gatekeepers of the house of Yahweh to stand, so that no one would enter who was in any way unclean.
