That I May Publish with the Voice of Thanksgiving

2 Chronicles 33:14–34:33; Romans 16:10-27; Psalm 26:1-12; Proverbs 20:19

That I May Publish with the Voice of Thanksgiving
I will wash mine hands in innocency: so will I compass thine altar, O LORD: That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all thy wondrous works. – 
Psalm 26:6-7

Heavenly Father, I ask you to show me the things in my life that need to be laid on the altar, repented of, and removed. I want it to be said of me that I did that which was right. I want to live a life pleasing to You and be able to come before You. I desire to be one that can wash my hands in innocency, that I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving all thy wondrous works. I ask this in the holy and precious Name of Jesus. Amen!!!

Josiah Did That Which Was Right
Josiah was eight years old when he began to reign, and he reigned in Jerusalem one and thirty years. And he did that which was right in the sight of the LORD, and walked in the ways of David his father, and declined neither to the right hand, nor to the left. For in the eighth year of his reign, while he was yet young, he began to seek after the God of David his father: and in the twelfth year he began to purge Judah and Jerusalem from the high places, and the groves, and the carved images, and the molten images.
 – 2 Chronicles 34:1-3

Josiah Sent Shapan and Joah to Repair the House of the LORD His God
Now in the eighteenth year of his reign, when he had purged the land, and the house, he sent Shaphan the son of Azaliah, and Maaseiah the governor of the city, and Joah the son of Joahaz the recorder, to repair the house of the LORD his God.

And the men did the work faithfully:  – 2 Chronicles 34:8, 12a

The Priest Found the Book of the Law
And when they brought out the money that was brought into the house of the LORD, Hilkiah the priest found a book of the law of the LORD given by Moses. And Hilkiah answered and said to Shaphan the scribe, I have found the book of the law in the house of the LORD. And Hilkiah delivered the book to Shaphan. And Shaphan carried the book to the king, and brought the king word back again, saying, All that was committed to thy servants, they do it.
 – 2 Chronicles 34:14-16

Josiah Heard the Words of the Law
And it came to pass, when the king had heard the words of the law, that he rent his clothes. And the king commanded Hilkiah, and Ahikam the son of Shaphan, and Abdon the son of Micah, and Shaphan the scribe, and Asaiah a servant of the king’s, saying, Go, inquire of the LORD for me, and for them that are left in Israel and in Judah, concerning the words of the book that is found: for great is the wrath of the LORD that is poured out upon us, because our fathers have not kept the word of the LORD, to do after all that is written in this book.
– 2 Chronicles 34:19-21

Josiah Made a Covenant Before the LORD
And the king stood in his place, and made a covenant before the LORD, to walk after the LORD, and to keep his commandments, and his testimonies, and his statutes, with all his heart, and with all his soul, to perform the words of the covenant which are written in this book.
 – 2 Chronicles 34:31

Josiah Departed Not From Following the LORD
And Josiah took away all the abominations out of all the countries that pertained to the children of Israel, and made all that were present in Israel to serve, even to serve the LORD their God. And all his days they departed not from following the LORD, the God of their fathers.
 – 2 Chronicles 34:33

Mark Them That Cause Divisions and Offences
Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple
. – Romans 16:17-18

A Talebearer
He that goeth about as a talebearer revealeth secrets: therefore meddle not with him that flattereth with his lips.
