And they offered together seven bullocks, and seven rams, and seven lambs, and seven he goats for sin, for the kingdom, for the sanctuary, for Juda: and he spoke to the priests the sons of Aaron, to offer them upon the altar of the Lord.

Therefore they killed the bullocks, and the priests took the blood, and poured it upon the altar; they killed also the rams, and their blood they poured also upon the altar, and they killed the lambs, and poured the blood upon the altar.
||adplicaverunt hircos pro peccato coram rege et universa multitudine inposueruntque manus suas super eos
And they brought the he goats for sin before the king, and the whole multitude, and they laid their hand upon them:
||et immolaverunt illos sacerdotes et asperserunt sanguinem eorum altari pro piaculo universi Israhelis pro omni quippe Israhel praeceperat rex ut holocaustum fieret et pro peccato
And the priests immolated them, and sprinkled their blood before the altar for an expiation of all Israel: for the king had commanded that the holocaust and the sin offering should be made for all Israel.

And Ezechias commanded that they should offer holocausts upon the altar: and when the holocausts were offered, they began to sing praises to the Lord, and to sound with trumpets, and divers instruments which David the king of Israel had prepared.
||omni autem turba adorante cantores et hii qui tenebant tubas erant in officio suo donec conpleretur holocaustum
And all the multitude adored, and the singers, and the trumpeters, were in their office till the holocaust was finished.
||cumque finita esset oblatio incurvatus est rex et omnes qui erant cum eo et adoraverunt
And when the oblation was ended, the king, and all that were with him bowed down and adored.

And Ezechias and the princes commanded the Levites to praise the Lord with the words of David, and Asaph the seer: and they praised him with great joy, and bowing the knee adored.

And Ezechias added, and said: You have filled your hands to the Lord, come and offer victims, and praises in the house of the Lord. And all the multitude offered victims, and praises, and holocausts with a devout mind.

And the number of the holocausts which the multitude offered, was seventy bullocks, a hundred rams, and two hundred lambs.
||sanctificaveruntque Domino boves sescentos et oves tria milia

||sacerdotes vero pauci erant nec poterant sufficere ut pelles holocaustorum detraherent unde et Levitae fratres eorum adiuverunt eos donec impleretur opus et sanctificarentur antistites Levitae quippe faciliori ritu sanctificantur quam sacerdotes
But the priests were few, and were not enough to flay the holocausts: wherefore the Levites their brethren helped them, till the work was ended, and priests were sanctified, for the Levites are sanctified with an easier rite than the priests.
||fuerunt igitur holocausta plurima adipes pacificorum et libamina holocaustorum et conpletus est cultus domus Domini
So there were many holocausts, and the fat of peace offerings, and the libations of holocausts: and the service of the house of the Lord was completed.
||laetatusque est Ezechias et omnis populus eo quod ministerium Domini esset expletum de repente quippe hoc fieri placuerat
And Ezechias, and all the people rejoiced because the ministry of the Lord was accomplished. For the resolution of doing this thing was taken suddenly.
