“And Hezekiah sent to all Israel and Judah, and wrote letters also to Ephraim and Manasseh, that they should come to the house of the LORD at Jerusalem, to keep the passover unto the LORD God of Israel. 2For the king had taken counsel, and his princes, and all the congregation in Jerusalem, to keep the passover in the second month.” II Chron. 30:1-2
Hezekiah ordered that they keep the Passover in the second month. The Passover was supposed to be celebrated in the first month, yet God did not consider that Hezekiah was being disobedient to the law. It was in Hezekiah’s heart to turn all Israel back to God. A right heart outweighs and overrules the detail of the law.
