2 Chr. 30 Hezekiah kept the Passover
 And Hezekiah sent to all Israel and Judah, and wrote
letters also to Ephraim and Manasseh, that they should come to the house of Yehovah
at Jerusalem, to keep the passover unto Yehovah God
 For the king had taken counsel, and his princes, and all the congregation in Jerusalem, to keep the passover in the second month.
 For they could not keep it at that time, because the priests had not sanctified themselves sufficiently, neither had the people gathered themselves together to Jerusalem.
 And the thing pleased the king and all the congregation.
 So they established a decree to make proclamation throughout all Israel, from Beer-sheba even to Dan, that they should come to keep the passover unto Yehovah God of Israel at Jerusalem: for they had not done it of a long time in such sort as it was written.
 So the posts went with the letters from the king and his princes throughout all Israel and Judah, and according to the commandment of the king, saying, Ye children of Israel, turn again unto Yehovah God of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, and he will return to the remnant of you, that are escaped out of the hand of the kings of Assyria.
 And be not ye like your fathers, and like your brethren, which trespassed against Yehovah God of their fathers, who therefore gave them up to desolation, as ye see.
 Now be ye not stiffnecked, as your fathers were, but yield yourselves unto Yehovah, and enter into his sanctuary, which he hath sanctified for ever: and serve Yehovah your God, that the fierceness of his wrath may turn away from you.
 For if ye turn again unto Yehovah, your brethren and your children shall find compassion before them that lead them captive, so that they shall come again into this land: for Yehovah your God is gracious and merciful, and will not turn away his face from you, if ye return unto him.
 So the posts passed from city to city through the country of Ephraim and Manasseh even unto Zebulun: but they laughed them to scorn, and mocked them.
 Nevertheless divers of Asher and Manasseh and of Zebulun humbled themselves, and came to Jerusalem.
 Also in Judah the hand of God was to give them one heart to do the commandment of the king and of the princes, by the word of Yehovah.
 And there assembled at Jerusalem much people to keep the feast of unleavened bread in the second month, a very great congregation.
 And they arose and took away the altars that were in Jerusalem, and all the altars for incense took they away, and cast them into the brook Kidron.
 Then they killed the passover on the fourteenth day of the second month: and the priests and the Levites were ashamed, and sanctified themselves, and brought in the burnt offerings into the house of Yehovah.
 And they stood in their place after their manner, according to the law of Moses the man of God: the priests sprinkled the blood, which they received of the hand of the Levites.
 For there were many in the congregation that were not sanctified: therefore the Levites had the charge of the killing of the passovers for every one that was not clean, to sanctify them unto Yehovah.
 For a multitude of the people, even many of Ephraim, and Manasseh, Issachar, and Zebulun, had not cleansed themselves, yet did they eat the passover otherwise than it was written. But Hezekiah prayed for them, saying, The good Yehovah pardon every one
 That prepareth his heart to seek God, Yehovah God of his fathers, though he be not cleansed according to the purification of the sanctuary.
 And Yehovah hearkened to Hezekiah, and healed the people.
 And the children of Israel that were present at Jerusalem kept the feast of unleavened bread seven days with great gladness: and the Levites and the priests praised Yehovah day by day, singing with loud instruments unto Yehovah.
 And Hezekiah spake comfortably unto all the Levites that taught the good knowledge of Yehovah: and they did eat throughout the feast seven days, offering peace offerings, and making confession to Yehovah God of their fathers.
 And the whole assembly took counsel to keep other seven days: and they kept other seven days with gladness.
 For Hezekiah king of Judah did give to the congregation a
thousand bullocks and seven thousand sheep; and the princes gave to the
congregation a thousand bullocks and ten thousand sheep: and a great number of
priests sanctified themselves.
 And all the congregation of Judah, with the priests and the Levites, and all the congregation that came out of Israel, and the strangers that came out of the land of Israel, and that dwelt in Judah, rejoiced.
 So there was great joy in Jerusalem: for since the time of Solomon the son of David king of Israel there was not the like in Jerusalem.
 Then the priests the Levites arose and blessed the people: and their voice was heard, and their prayer came up to his holy dwelling place, even unto heaven.
2 Chr. 35 - Josiah kept the Passover
 Moreover Josiah kept a passover
unto Yehovah in Jerusalem: and they killed the passover on the fourteenth day
of the first month.
 And he set the priests in their charges, and encouraged them to the service of the house of Yehovah,
 And said unto the Levites that taught all Israel, which were holy unto Yehovah, Put the holy ark in the house which Solomon the son of David king of Israel did build; it shall not be a burden upon your shoulders: serve now Yehovah your God, and his people Israel,
 And prepare yourselves by the houses of your fathers, after your courses, according to the writing of David king of Israel, and according to the writing of Solomon his son.
 And stand in the holy place according to the divisions of the families of the fathers of your brethren the people, and after the division of the families of the Levites.
 So kill the passover, and sanctify yourselves, and prepare your brethren, that they may do according to the word of Yehovah by the hand of Moses.
 And Josiah gave to the people, of the flock, lambs and kids, all for the passover offerings, for all that were present, to the number of thirty thousand, and three thousand bullocks: these were of the king's substance.
 And his princes gave willingly unto the people, to the priests, and to the Levites: Hilkiah and Zechariah and Jehiel, rulers of the house of God, gave unto the priests for the passover offerings two thousand and six hundred small cattle, and three hundred oxen.
 Conaniah also, and Shemaiah and Nethaneel, his brethren, and Hashabiah and Jeiel and Jozabad, chief of the Levites, gave unto the Levites for passover offerings five thousand small cattle, and five hundred oxen.
 So the service was prepared, and the priests stood in their place, and the Levites in their courses, according to the king's commandment.
 And they killed the passover, and the priests sprinkled the blood from their hands, and the Levites flayed them.
 And they removed the burnt offerings, that they might give according to the divisions of the families of the people, to offer unto Yehovah, as it is written in the book of Moses. And so did they with the oxen.
 And they roasted the passover with fire according to the ordinance: but the other holy offerings sod they in pots, and in caldrons, and in pans, and divided them speedily among all the people.
 And afterward they made ready for themselves, and for the priests: because the priests the sons of Aaron were busied in offering of burnt offerings and the fat until night; therefore the Levites prepared for themselves, and for the priests the sons of Aaron.
 And the singers the sons of Asaph were in their place, according to the commandment of David, and Asaph, and Heman, and Jeduthun the king's seer; and the porters waited at every gate; they might not depart from their service; for their brethren the Levites prepared for them.
 So all the service of Yehovah was prepared the same day, to keep the passover, and to offer burnt offerings upon the altar of Yehovah, according to the commandment of king Josiah.
 And the children of Israel that were present kept the passover at that time, and the feast of unleavened bread seven days.
 And there was no passover like to that kept in Israel from the days of Samuel the prophet; neither did all the kings of Israel keep such a passover as Josiah kept, and the priests, and the Levites, and all Judah and Israel that were present, and the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
 In the eighteenth year of the
reign of Josiah was this passover kept.
 After all this, when Josiah had prepared the temple, Necho king of Egypt came up to fight against Carchemish by Euphrates: and Josiah went out against him.
 But he sent ambassadors to him, saying, What have I to do with thee, thou king of Judah? I come not against thee this day, but against the house wherewith I have war: for God commanded me to make haste: forbear thee from meddling with God, who is with me, that he destroy thee not.
 Nevertheless Josiah would not turn his face from him, but disguised himself, that he might fight with him, and hearkened not unto the words of Necho from the mouth of God, and came to fight in the valley of Megiddo.
 And the archers shot at king Josiah; and the king said to his servants, Have me away; for I am sore wounded.
 His servants therefore took him out of that chariot, and put him in the second chariot that he had; and they brought him to Jerusalem, and he died, and was buried in one of the sepulchres of his fathers. And all Judah and Jerusalem mourned for Josiah.
 And Jeremiah lamented for Josiah: and all the singing men and the singing women spake of Josiah in their lamentations to this day, and made them an ordinance in Israel: and, behold, they are written in the lamentations.
 Now the rest of the acts of Josiah, and his goodness, according to that which was written in the law of Yehovah,
 And his deeds, first and last, behold, they are written in the book of the kings of Israel and Judah.
Ezra 6 2nd Temple finished - the children of the captivity kept the Passover
 And the elders of the Jews builded, and they prospered through the prophesying of Haggai the prophet and Zechariah the son of Iddo. And they builded, and finished it, according to the commandment of the God of Israel, and according to the commandment of Cyrus, and Darius, and Artaxerxes king of Persia.
 And this house was finished on the third day of the month Adar, which was in the sixth year of the reign of Darius the king.
 And the children of Israel, the priests, and the Levites, and the rest of the children of the captivity, kept the dedication of this house of God with joy,
 And offered at the dedication of this house of God an hundred bullocks, two hundred rams, four hundred lambs; and for a sin offering for all Israel, twelve he goats, according to the number of the tribes of Israel.
 And they set the priests in their divisions, and the Levites in their courses, for the service of God, which is at Jerusalem; as it is written in the book of Moses.
 And the children of the captivity kept the Passover upon the fourteenth day of the first month.
 For the priests and the Levites were purified together,
all of them were pure, and killed the passover for all the children of the
captivity, and for their brethren the priests, and for themselves.
 And the children of Israel, which were come again out of captivity, and all such as had separated themselves unto them from the filthiness of the heathen of the land, to seek Yehovah God of Israel, did eat,
 And kept the feast of unleavened bread seven days with joy: for Yehovah had made them joyful, and turned the heart of the king of Assyria unto them, to strengthen their hands in the work of the house of God, the God of Israel.
 Thus saith Yehovah Yehovah; In the first
month, in the first day of the month, thou shalt take a young bullock without blemish,
and cleanse the sanctuary:
 And the priest shall take of the blood of the sin offering, and put it upon the posts of the house, and upon the four corners of the settle of the altar, and upon the posts of the gate of the inner court.
 And so thou shalt do the seventh day of the month for every one that erreth, and for him that is simple: so shall ye reconcile the house.
 In the first month, in the fourteenth day of the month, ye shall have (like the Gospels) the Passover, a feast of seven days; unleavened bread shall be eaten.
 And upon that day shall the prince prepare for himself and for all the people of the land a bullock for a sin offering.
 And seven days of the feast he shall prepare a burnt offering to Yehovah, seven bullocks and seven rams without blemish daily the seven days; and a kid of the goats daily for a sin offering.
Luke 2  Now Yeshua’s parents went to Jerusalem every year at the feast of the Passover
 And when he was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem after the custom of the feast. And when they had fulfilled the days, (7 days) they returned…
Custom = manner according to the divine laws in Torah
