Hezekiah calls for revival and reformation.   Unlike his father Ahaz, Hezekiah’s ascension to the throne ushered in a season of spiritual renewal across the nation. In this chapter, the verb to “sanctify” is used eight times and the verb “cleans” three times.  The first step towards revival and reformation is a commitment to a thorough heart preparation. 

Hezekiah’s call began with the leaders, priests and Levites (vv. 4-5; 20).  Once they reconciled and consecrated themselves to the Lord; there ensued a powerful worship service among the leaders of the nation (vv. 28; 33-34).  When the leaders are revived and “the service of the house of the Lord [is] set in order” (verse 35), the church members followed in the same footsteps as the next chapter indicates.
