*And Hezekiah questioned the priests and the Levites about the heaps. Azariah the chief priest, who was of the house of Zadok, answered him, “Since they began to bring the contributions into the house of the Lord, we have eaten and had enough and have plenty left, for the Lord has blessed his people, so that we have this large amount left.” *(2 Chronicles 31:9-10 ESV)
И спросил Езекия священников и левитов об этих грудах. И отвечал ему Азария первосвященник из дома Садокова и сказал: с того времени, как начали носить приношения в дом Господень, мы ели досыта, и многое осталось, потому что Господь благословил народ Свой. Из оставшегося [составилось] такое множество. (2-я Паралипоменон 31:9-10 Russian)
O LORD my God, we come into your august presence on this new day with trembling hearts that are full of love for you because of your many loving benefits showered upon all people. Help us to continue growing in wisdom as we read, meditate upon and put into practice the great teaching and examples of Christ and his chosen apostles. Help every believer in Jesus as Lord, to have a heart like your chosen people in the days of Hezekiah. Bless our offerings of service to Christ and accept the gifts we make to the work of the local Church. We pray in the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
