29:29 Knelt and prostrated themselves
Chizkiyahu institutes great reform in the kingdom of Yehuda. He abolishes the idolatry established by his father Achaz, reopens and cleanses the Beit Hamikdash, brings back the Kohanim and Leviim and reinstitutes the sacrificial offerings to Hashem. After the offerings are brought, the people “knelt and prostrated themselves” to Hashem. Once the Beit Hamikdash has been rededicated to the worship of God through true sacrifices offered with “a willing heart” (verse 31), Hashem’s presence returns to the Beit Hamikdash, necessitating prostration. Similarly, in our lives, God rests among those who are willing to sacrifice of themselves for Him.
