This was the case with King Josiah and the remnant that shared his love for Yahweh. At age 16 he sought Yahweh; At age 20 he began a major reformation, purging Judah and much of Israel of idols. At age 26 he began renovating the temple, and it was at that time the loss scroll of Moses was found and it had a profound impact on King Josiah. Scripture was unwasted on him and he remnant supporting him.
