    Clarke's Commentary on 2 Kings 23:22

    Surely there was not holden such a passover - Not one on purer principles, more heartily joined in by the people present, more literally consecrated, or more religiously observed. The words do not apply to the number present, but to the manner and spirit. See the particulars and mode of celebrating this passover in 2 Chronicles 35:1-18 (note).

    Barnes' Notes on 2 Kings 23:22

    The details of the Passover are given by the author of Chronicles (the marginal reference). Its superiority to other Passovers seems to have consisted:

    (1) in the multitudes that attended it; and

    (2) in the completeness with which all the directions of the Law were observed in the celebration. Compare Nehemiah 8:17.
