1 H4519 Manasseh H8147 was twelve H6240 H8141 years H1121 old H4427 when he began to reign, H4427 and he reigned H2572 fifty H2568 and five H8141 years H3389 in Jerusalem:
2 H6213 But did H7451 that which was evil H5869 in the sight H3068 of the LORD, H8441 like to the abominations H1471 of the heathen, H834 whom H3068 the LORD H3423 had cast H6440 out before H1121 the children H3478 of Israel.
3 H1129 For he built H7725 again H1116 the high H834 places which H2396 Hezekiah H5422 his father had broken H5422 down, H6965 and he reared H4196 up altars H1168 for Baalim, H6213 and made H842 groves, H7812 and worshipped H3605 all H6635 the host H8064 of heaven, H5647 and served them.
4 H1129 Also he built H4196 altars H1004 in the house H3068 of the LORD, H834 whereof H3068 the LORD H559 had said, H3389 In Jerusalem H8034 shall my name H5769 be for ever.
5 H1129 And he built H4196 altars H3605 for all H6635 the host H8064 of heaven H8147 in the two H2691 courts H1004 of the house H3068 of the LORD.
6 H1121 And he caused his children H5674 to pass H784 through the fire H1516 in the valley H1121 of the son H2011 of Hinnom: H6049 also he observed H5172 times, and used enchantments, H3784 and used witchcraft, H6213 and dealt H178 with a familiar spirit, H3049 and with wizards: H6213 he worked H7235 much H7451 evil H5869 in the sight H3068 of the LORD, H3707 to provoke him to anger.
7 H7760 And he set H6459 a carved H5566 image, the idol H834 which H6213 he had made, H1004 in the house H430 of God, H834 of which H430 God H559 had said H1732 to David H8010 and to Solomon H1121 his son, H2088 In this H1004 house, H3389 and in Jerusalem, H834 which H970 I have chosen H3605 before all H7626 the tribes H3478 of Israel, H7760 will I put H8034 my name H5865 for ever:
8 H3808 Neither H5493 will I any more remove H7272 the foot H3478 of Israel H127 from out of the land H834 which H5975 I have appointed H1 for your fathers; H8104 so that they will take heed H6213 to do H3605 all H6680 that I have commanded H3605 them, according to the whole H8451 law H2706 and the statutes H4941 and the ordinances H3027 by the hand H4872 of Moses.
9 H4519 So Manasseh H3063 made Judah H3427 and the inhabitants H3389 of Jerusalem H8582 to err, H6213 and to do H7451 worse H4480 than H1471 the heathen, H834 whom H3068 the LORD H8045 had destroyed H6440 before H1121 the children H3478 of Israel.
10 H3068 And the LORD H1696 spoke H4519 to Manasseh, H5971 and to his people: H7181 but they would not listen.
11 H3068 Why the LORD H935 brought H8269 on them the captains H6635 of the host H4428 of the king H804 of Assyria, H3920 which took H4519 Manasseh H2336 among the thorns, H631 and bound H5178 him with fetters, H3212 and carried H894 him to Babylon.
12 H6887 And when he was in affliction, H2470 he sought H3068 the LORD H430 his God, H3665 and humbled H3966 himself greatly H854 before H6440 H430 the God H1 of his fathers,
13 H6419 And prayed H6279 to him: and he was entreated H8085 of him, and heard H8467 his supplication, H7725 and brought H7725 him again H3389 to Jerusalem H4438 into his kingdom. H4519 Then Manasseh H3045 knew H3068 that the LORD H430 he was God.
14 H310 Now after H3651 this H1129 he built H2346 a wall H2435 without H5892 the city H1732 of David, H4628 on the west H1521 side of Gihon, H5158 in the valley, H935 even to the entering H1709 in at the fish H8179 gate, H5437 and compassed H6077 about Ophel, H1361 and raised H3966 it up a very H1361 great height, H7760 and put H8269 captains H2428 of war H3605 in all H1219 the fenced H5892 cities H3063 of Judah.
15 H5493 And he took away H5236 the strange H430 gods, H5566 and the idol H1004 out of the house H3068 of the LORD, H3605 and all H4196 the altars H1129 that he had built H2022 in the mount H1004 of the house H3068 of the LORD, H3389 and in Jerusalem, H7993 and cast H5892 them out of the city.
16 H1129 And he repaired H4196 the altar H3068 of the LORD, H2076 and sacrificed H5921 thereon H8002 peace H2077 offerings H8426 and thank H559 offerings, and commanded H3063 Judah H5647 to serve H3068 the LORD H430 God H3478 of Israel.
17 H61 Nevertheless H5971 the people H2076 did sacrifice H5750 still H1116 in the high H3068 places, yet to the LORD H430 their God H7535 only.
18 H3499 Now the rest H1697 of the acts H4519 of Manasseh, H8605 and his prayer H430 to his God, H1697 and the words H2374 of the seers H1696 that spoke H8034 to him in the name H3068 of the LORD H430 God H3478 of Israel, H2009 behold, H1697 they are written in the book H4428 of the kings H3478 of Israel.
19 H8605 His prayer H6279 also, and how God was entreated H3605 of him, and all H2403 his sins, H4604 and his trespass, H4725 and the places H834 wherein H1129 he built H1116 high H5975 places, and set H842 up groves H6456 and graven H6440 images, before H3665 he was humbled: H2009 behold, H3789 they are written H5921 among H1697 the sayings H2374 of the seers.
20 H4519 So Manasseh H7901 slept H1 with his fathers, H6912 and they buried H1004 him in his own house: H526 and Amon H1121 his son H4427 reigned H8478 in his stead.
21 H526 Amon H6242 was two and twenty H8141 years H1121 old H4427 when he began to reign, H4427 and reigned H8141 two years H3389 in Jerusalem.
22 H6213 But he did H7451 that which was evil H5869 in the sight H3068 of the LORD, H6213 as did H4519 Manasseh H1 his father: H526 for Amon H2076 sacrificed H3605 to all H6456 the carved H834 images which H4519 Manasseh H1 his father H6213 had made, H5647 and served them;
23 H3665 And humbled H6440 not himself before H3068 the LORD, H4519 as Manasseh H1 his father H3665 had humbled H526 himself; but Amon H819 trespassed H7235 more and more.
24 H5650 And his servants H7194 conspired H5921 against H4191 him, and slew H1004 him in his own house.
