Bible: 2 Kings 22:8-13

22:8 Hilkiah the high priest informed Shaphan the scribe, “I found the law scroll in the Lord’s temple.” Hilkiah gave the scroll to Shaphan and he read it. 22:9 Shaphan the scribe went to the king and reported, 1 Your servants melted down the silver in the temple 2  and handed it over to the construction foremen assigned to the Lord’s temple.” 22:10 Then Shaphan the scribe told the king, “Hilkiah the priest has given me a scroll.” Shaphan read it out loud before the king. 22:11 When the king heard the words of the law scroll, he tore his clothes. 22:12 The king ordered Hilkiah the priest, Ahikam son of Shaphan, Acbor son of Micaiah, Shaphan the scribe, and Asaiah the king’s servant, 22:13 Go, seek an oracle from 3  the Lord for me and the people – for all Judah. Find out about 4  the words of this scroll that has been discovered. For the Lord’s fury has been ignited against us, 5  because our ancestors have not obeyed the words of this scroll by doing all that it instructs us to do.” 6
