Now the rulers of Judah heard about everything that was happening. So they came out of the king’s palace. They went up to the Lord’s Temple. They took their places at the entrance of the New Gate. The New Gate is a gate leading to the Lord’s Temple.
Now when the officers of Judah heard ·about what was happening [L these things/words], they came out of the king’s ·palace [L house] and went up to the ·Temple [L house] of the Lord and took their places at the entrance of the New Gate.
Officials from the royal court of Judah were told of this. They left the palace immediately and came to God’s Temple to investigate. They held court on the spot, at the New Gate entrance to God’s Temple.
However, some of the officials of Judah heard about what was happening and they rushed up to the Lord’s temple from the royal palace. They set up court at the entrance of the New Gate of the Lord’s temple.
And the princes of Judah heard all these words; and they ascended from the king’s house into the house of the Lord, and sat in the entering of the new gate of the house of the Lord. (And the princes, or the leaders, of Judah heard all these words; and they went up from the king’s house to the House of the Lord, and sat at the entrance of the New Gate of the House of the Lord.)
