He made a covenant with them, making them take an oath in the LORD's Temple, and then he revealed the king's son to them. 5 He ordered them: 6 "Here's what we'll do: A third of you will enter here on this coming Sabbath dressed as guardians of the watch for the king's palace, with a third of you at the Sur gate, and a third at the gate behind the guards. Keep watch over the palace and defend it.
