2 Chronicles 31:1-3Contemporary English Version (CEV)
The People Destroy the Local Shrines
31 After the Festival, the people went to every town in Judah and smashed the stone images of foreign gods and cut down the sacred poles[a] for worshiping the goddess Asherah. They destroyed all the local shrines[b] and foreign altars in Judah, as well as those in the territories of Benjamin, Ephraim, and West Manasseh. Then everyone went home.
Offerings for the Priests and Levites
2 Hezekiah divided the priests and Levites into groups, according to their duties. Then he assigned them the responsibilities of offering sacrifices to please the Lord[c] and sacrifices to ask his blessing.[d] He also appointed people to serve at the temple and to sing praises at the temple gates. 3 Hezekiah provided animals from his own herds and flocks to use for the morning and evening sacrifices, as well as for the sacrifices during the Sabbath celebrations, the New Moon Festivals, and the other religious feasts required by the Law of the Lord.
