Second Kings 21


21:1 Manasseh [was] twelve years old when he began to reign, and
 he reigned fifty and five years in Jerusalem. And his mother's
 name [was] Hephzi-bah.
21:2 And he did [that which was] evil in the sight of the LORD,
 after the abominations of the heathen, whom the LORD cast out
 before the children of Israel.
21:3 For he built again the high places which Hezekiah his
 father had destroyed; and he reared altars for Baal, and made a
 grove, as did Ahab king of Israel; and worshiped all the host
 of heaven, and served them.
21:4 And he built altars in the house of the LORD, of which the
 LORD said, In Jerusalem will I put my name.
21:5 And he built altars for all the host of heaven in the two
 courts of the house of the LORD.
21:6 And he made his son pass through the fire, and observed
 times, and used enchantments, and dealt with familiar spirits
 and wizards: he committed much wickedness in the sight of the
 LORD, to provoke [him] to anger.
21:7 And he set a graven image of the grove that he had made in
 the house, of which the LORD said to David, and to Solomon his
 son, In this house, and in Jerusalem, which I have chosen out
 of all tribes of Israel, will I put my name for ever:
21:8 Neither will I make the feet of Israel move any more out of
 the land which I gave their fathers; only if they will observe
 to do according to all that I have commanded them, and
 according to all the law that my servant Moses commanded them.
21:9 But they hearkened not: and Manasseh seduced them to do
 more evil than did the nations whom the LORD destroyed before
 the children of Israel.
21:10 And the LORD spoke by his servants the prophets, saying,
21:11 Because Manasseh king of Judah hath done these
 abominations, [and] hath done wickedly above all that the
 Amorites did, who [were] before him, and hath made Judah also
 to sin with his idols:
21:12 Therefore thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Behold, I
 [am] bringing [such] evil upon Jerusalem and Judah, that
 whoever heareth of it, both his ears shall tingle.
21:13 And I will stretch over Jerusalem the line of Samaria, and
 the plummet of the house of Ahab: and I will wipe Jerusalem as
 [a man] wipeth a dish, wiping [it], and turning [it] upside
 down.
21:14 And I will forsake the remnant of my inheritance, and
 deliver them into the hand of their enemies; and they shall
 become a prey and a spoil to all their enemies;
21:15 Because they have done [that which was] evil in my sight,
 and have provoked me to anger, since the day their fathers came
 out of Egypt, even to this day.
21:16 Moreover, Manasseh shed innocent blood very much, till he
 had filled Jerusalem from one end to another; besides his sin
 with which he made Judah to sin, in doing evil in the sight of
 the LORD.
21:17 Now the rest of the acts of Manasseh, and all that he did,
 and his sin that he sinned, [are] they not written in the book
 of the chronicles of the kings of Judah?
21:18 And Manasseh slept with his fathers, and was buried in the
 garden of his own house, in the garden of Uzza: and Amon his
 son reigned in his stead.
21:19 Amon [was] twenty and two years old when he began to
 reign, and he reigned two years in Jerusalem. And his mother's
 name [was] Meshullemeth, the daughter of Haruz of Jotbah.
21:20 And he did [that which was] evil in the sight of the LORD,
 as his father Manasseh did.
21:21 And he walked in all the way that his father walked in,
 and served the idols that his father served, and worshiped
 them:
21:22 And he forsook the LORD God of his fathers, and walked not
 in the way of the LORD.
21:23 And the servants of Amon conspired against him, and slew
 the king in his own house.
21:24 And the people of the land slew all them that had
 conspired against king Amon; and the people of the land made
 Josiah his son king in his stead.
21:25 Now the rest of the acts of Amon which he did, [are] they
 not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of
 Judah?
21:26 And he was buried in his sepulcher in the garden of Uzza:
 and Josiah his son reigned in his stead.
