2 Kings 21 ©
Manasseh's wicked reign and great idolatry. Prophecies uttered against Judah because of his wickedness. He dieth: Amon succeedeth him. Amon's wicked reign. He is slain by a conspiracy of his servants; the people slay the murderers, and make Josiah king. Amon's acts and burial.
And hhe made his son pass ithrough the fire, and observed times, and jused enchantments, and dealt with kfamiliar spirits and wizards: he lwrought much wickedness in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger.
And he set ma 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 nthis house, and in Jerusalem, which I have chosen out of all tribes of Israel, will I put my name for ever:
Neither owill I make the feet of Israel move pany more out of the land which I gave their fathers; qonly 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.
But rthey hearkened not: and Manasseh sseduced them to do more evil than did the nations whom the LORD destroyed before the children of Israel.
¶And the LORD spake by his servants the prophets, saying,
And I will wstretch 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, 1wiping it, and turning it upside down.
And Manasseh slept with his fathers, and was buried in the garden of his own house, in the garden of cUzza: and Amon his son reigned in his *stead.
And he walked in all the way that his father walked in, and served the idols that his father served, and worshipped them:
And he was buried in his sepulchre lin the garden of Uzza: and 3Josiah his son reigned in his *stead.
