_ _ in the first year of his reign, in the first month — not the first month after his accession to the throne, but in Nisan, the first month of the sacred year, the season appointed for the celebration of the Passover.

_ _ he opened the doors of the house of the Lord — which had been closed up by his father (2 Chronicles 28:24).

_ _ and repaired them — or embellished them (compare 2 Kings 18:16).
