King of Jerusalem. In his time Hilkiah the priest found a book of the law in the temple and after communicating with the scribe he showed it to the king. The [latter], being reverent and righteous, when it was read to him, rent his garment and purged the temple of God of the abominations and having pillaged these [sc. pagan] idols he also joined the ones in Samaria to Jerusalem; [this was] also when the passover was celebrated, after having been omitted for a long time.
