6  The couriers went out with the letters from the king and his officers through all Yisrael and Yehuda, by order of the king, proclaiming, “O you Israelites! Return to God of your fathers, Avraham,

Yitzchak, and Yisrael, and He will return to the remnant of you who escaped from the hand of the kings of Assyria.

ו  וַיֵּלְכוּ הָרָצִים בָּאִגְּרוֹת מִיַּד הַמֶּלֶךְ וְשָׂרָיו בְּכָל־יִשְׂרָאֵל וִיהוּדָה וּכְמִצְוַת הַמֶּלֶךְ לֵאמֹר בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל שׁוּבוּ אֶל־יְהֹוָה אֱלֹהֵי אַבְרָהָם יִצְחָק וְיִשְׂרָאֵל

30:6   God of your fathers, AvrahamYitzchak, and Yisrael

Chizkiyahu invokes the God of Avraham, Yitzchak and Yaakov, the forefathers to whom the Land of Israel was first promised. He sends his messengers throughout the land to tell those who had inherited the land from their forefathers that if they renew their covenant with Hashem and rededicate themselves to His service, they can escape foreign domination. He calls on them to bring the Pesach sacrifice, which they first brought in Egypt, indelibly identifying them as Hashem’s people and symbolizing their freedom. The way to achieve freedom in their land is to renew their loyalty to their Father in Heaven.
