Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Chronicles 35:18

_ _ there was no passover like to that kept in Israel from the days of Samuel — One feature by which this passover was distinguished was the liberality of Josiah. But what distinguished it above all preceding solemnities was, not the imposing grandeur of the ceremonies, nor the immensity of the assembled concourse of worshippers; for these, with the exception of a few from the kingdom of Israel, were confined to two tribes; but it was the ardent devotion of the king and people, the disregard of purely traditional customs, and the unusually strict adherence, even in the smallest minutiae, to the forms of observance prescribed in the book of the law, the discovery of an original copy of which had produced so great a sensation. Instead of “from the days of Samuel,” the author of the Book of Kings says, “from the days of the judges who judged Israel” [2 Kings 23:22]. The meaning is the same in both passages, for Samuel concluded the era of the judges.

_ _ all Judah and Israel that were present — The great majority of the people of the northern kingdom were in exile, but some of the remaining inhabitants performed the journey to Jerusalem on this occasion. 37,600 paschal lambs and kids were used, which [2 Chronicles 35:7], at ten to a company, would make 376,000 persons attending the feast.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Chronicles 35:1-19.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Chronicles 35:18

Like to that — The whole solemnity was performed exactly according to the law, whereas in Hezekiah's passover there were several irregularities: likewise Josiah furnished the whole congregation with beasts for sacrifice at his own charge, which no king ever did before him.

Cross-Reference Topical ResearchStrong's Concordance
there was no passover:
Not one on purer principles, more heartily joined in by the people present, more literally or exactly consecrated, according to the law, or more religiously observed. The words do not refer to the number present, but to the manner and spirit.
2 Chronicles 30:5 So they established a decree to make proclamation throughout all Israel, from Beersheba even to Dan, that they should come to keep the passover unto the LORD God of Israel at Jerusalem: for they had not done [it] of a long [time in such sort] as it was written.
2 Kings 23:21-23 And the king commanded all the people, saying, Keep the passover unto the LORD your God, as [it is] written in the book of this covenant. ... But in the eighteenth year of king Josiah, [wherein] this passover was holden to the LORD in Jerusalem.

neither did:

2 Chronicles 30:26-27 So there was great joy in Jerusalem: for since the time of Solomon the son of David king of Israel [there was] not the like in Jerusalem. ... Then the priests the Levites arose and blessed the people: and their voice was heard, and their prayer came [up] to his holy dwelling place, [even] unto heaven.
