012:021:001
Manasseh was twelve years old when he began to reign,
and reigned fifty and five years in Jerusalem.
And his mother's name was Hephzibah.


012:021:002
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.


012:021:003
For he built up again the high places which Hezekiah his father had destroyed;
and he reared up altars for Baal,
and made a grove,
as did Ahab king of Israel;
and worshipped all the host of heaven,
and served them.


012:021:004
And he built altars in the house of the LORD,
of which the LORD said,
In Jerusalem will I put my name.


012:021:005
And he built altars for all the host of heaven in the two courts of the house of the LORD.


012:021:006
And he made his son pass through the fire,
and observed times,
and used enchantments,
and dealt with familiar spirits and wizards:
he wrought much wickedness in the sight of the LORD,
to provoke him to anger.


012:021:007
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:


012:021:008
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.


012:021:009
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.


012:021:010
And the LORD spake by his servants the prophets,
saying,


012:021:011
Because Manasseh king of Judah hath done these abominations,
and hath done wickedly above all that the Amorites did,
which were before him,
and hath made Judah also to sin with his idols:


012:021:012
Therefore thus saith the LORD God of Israel,
Behold,
I am bringing such evil upon Jerusalem and Judah,
that whosoever heareth of it,
both his ears shall tingle.


012:021:013
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.


012:021:014
And I will forsake the remnant of mine inheritance,
and deliver them into the hand of their enemies;
and they shall become a prey and a spoil to all their enemies;


012:021:015
Because they have done that which was evil in my sight,
and have provoked me to anger,
since the day their fathers came forth out of Egypt,
even unto this day.


012:021:016
Moreover Manasseh shed innocent blood very much,
till he had filled Jerusalem from one end to another;
beside his sin wherewith he made Judah to sin,
in doing that which was evil in the sight of the LORD.


012:021:017
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?


012:021:018
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.


012:021:019
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.


012:021:020
And he did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD,
as his father Manasseh did.


012:021:021
And he walked in all the way that his father walked in,
and served the idols that his father served,
and worshipped them:


012:021:022
And he forsook the LORD God of his fathers,
and walked not in the way of the LORD.


012:021:023
And the servants of Amon conspired against him,
and slew the king in his own house.


012:021:024
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.


012:021:025
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?


012:021:026
And he was buried in his sepulchre in the garden of Uzza:
and Josiah his son reigned in his stead.
