Second Kings 22

22:1 Josiah [was] eight years old when he began to reign, and he
 reigned thirty and one years in Jerusalem. And his mother's
 name [was] Jedidah the daughter of Adaiah of Boscath.
22:2 And he did [that which was] right in the sight of the LORD,
 and walked in all the way of David his father, and turned not
 aside to the right hand or to the left.
22:3 And it came to pass in the eighteenth year of king Josiah,
 [that] the king sent Shaphan the son of Azaliah, the son of
 Meshullam, the scribe, to the house of the LORD, saying,
22:4 Go to Hilkiah the high priest, that he may sum the silver
 which is brought into the house of the LORD, which the keepers
 of the door have gathered from the people:
22:5 And let them deliver it into the hand of the doers of the
 work, that have the oversight of the house of the LORD: and let
 them give it to the doers of the work, which [is] in the house
 of the LORD, to repair the breaches of the house,
22:6 To carpenters, and builders, and masons, and to buy timber,
 and hewn stone to repair the house.
22:7 But there was no reckoning made with them of the money that
 was delivered into their hand, because they dealt faithfully.
22:8 And Hilkiah the high priest said to Shaphan the scribe, I
 have found the book of the law in the house of the LORD. And
 Hilkiah gave the book to Shaphan, and he read it.
22:9 And Shaphan the scribe came to the king, and brought the
 king word again, and said, Thy servants have gathered the money
 that was found in the house, and have delivered it into the
 hand of them that do the work, that have the oversight of the
 house of the LORD.
22:10 And Shaphan the scribe showed the king, saying, Hilkiah
 the priest hath delivered me a book. And Shaphan read it before
 the king.
22:11 And it came to pass, when the king had heard the words of
 the book of the law, that he rent his clothes.
22:12 And the king commanded Hilkiah the priest, and Ahikam the
 son of Shaphan, and Achbor the son of Michaiah, and Shaphan the
 scribe, and Asahiah a servant of the king's, saying,
22:13 Go ye, inquire of the LORD for me, and for the people, and
 for all Judah, concerning the words of this book that is found:
 for great [is] the wrath of the LORD that is kindled against
 us, because our fathers have not hearkened to the words of this
 book, to do according to all that which is written concerning
22:14 So Hilkiah the priest, and Ahikam, and Achbor, and
 Shaphan, and Asahiah, went to Huldah the prophetess, the wife
 of Shallum the son of Tikvah, the son of Harhas, keeper of the
 wardrobe; (now she dwelt in Jerusalem in the college;) and they
 communed with her.
22:15 And she said to them, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel,
 Tell the man that sent you to me,
22:16 Thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will bring evil upon this
 place, and upon its inhabitants, [even] all the words of the
 book which the king of Judah hath read:
22:17 Because they have forsaken me, and have burned incense to
 other gods, that they might provoke me to anger with all the
 works of their hands; therefore my wrath shall be kindled
 against this place and shall not be quenched.
22:18 But to the king of Judah who sent you to inquire of the
 LORD, thus shall ye say to him, Thus saith the LORD God of
 Israel, [concerning] the words which thou hast heard;
22:19 Because thy heart was tender, and thou hast humbled
 thyself before the LORD, when thou heardest what I spoke
 against this place, and against its inhabitants, that they
 should become a desolation and a curse, and hast rent thy
 clothes, and wept before me; I also have heard [thee], saith
 the LORD.
22:20 Behold therefore, I will gather thee to thy fathers, and
 thou shalt be gathered into thy grave in peace; and thy eyes
 shall not see all the evil which I will bring upon this place.
 And they brought the king word again.
