22  Now the Pesach sacrifice had not been offered in that manner in the days of the chieftains who ruled Yisrael, or during the days of the kings of Yisrael and the kings of Yehuda.

KEE LO na-a-SAH ka-PE-sakh ha-ZEH mee-MAY ha-SHO-f’-TEEM a-SHER sha-f’-TU et yis-ra-AYL v’-KHOL y’-MAY mal-KHAY yis-ra-AYL u-mal-KHAY y’-hu-DAH

כב  כִּי לֹא נַעֲשָׂה כַּפֶּסַח הַזֶּה מִימֵי הַשֹּׁפְטִים אֲשֶׁר שָׁפְטוּ אֶת־יִשְׂרָאֵל וְכֹל יְמֵי מַלְכֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל וּמַלְכֵי יְהוּדָה׃

 23:22   Now the Pesach sacrifice had not been offered in that manner

Yoshiyahu is a righteous king who restores service of Hashem and observance of His Torah among the Children of Israel. His unique ability and success is symbolized by the massive observance of the Pesach sacrifice. Rashi notes that there had never been as many people observing this commandment. The Pesach sacrifice is a central commandment, as it proclaims Hashem’s active involvement in history and His selection of the Children of Israel as His holy nation. It also shows that though God may punish the Children of Israel, His bond with them is eternal. This message will take on special significance during the long and arduous exile from the Land of Israel.
