1 H4519 Manasseh H8147 was twelve 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 And he did H7451 that which was evil H5869 in the sight H3068 of Jehovah, H8441 after the abominations H1471 of the nations H3068 whom Jehovah H3423 cast out H6440 before H1121 the children H3478 of Israel.
3 H1129 For he built H7725 again H1116 the high places H3169 which Hezekiah H1 his father H5422 had broken down; H6965 and he reared up H4196 altars H1168 for the Baalim, H6213 and made H842 Asheroth, H7812 and worshipped H6635 all the host H8064 of heaven, H5647 and served them.
4 H1129 And he built H4196 altars H1004 in the house H3068 of Jehovah, H3068 whereof Jehovah H559 said, H3389 In Jerusalem H8034 shall my name H5769 be for ever.
5 H1129 And he built H4196 altars H6635 for all the host H8064 of heaven H8147 in the two H2691 courts H1004 of the house H3068 of Jehovah.
6 H5674 He also made H1121 his children H5674 to pass through H784 the fire H1516 in the valley H1121 of the son H2011 of Hinnom; H6049 and he practised augury, H5172 and used enchantments, H3784 and practised sorcery, H6213 and dealt H178 with them that had familiar spirits, H3049 and with wizards: H6213 he wrought H7235 much H7451 evil H5869 in the sight H3068 of Jehovah, H3707 to provoke him to anger.
7 H7760 And he set H6459 the graven image H5566 of the idol, H6213 which he had made, H1004 in the house H430 of God, H430 of which God H559 said H1732 to David H8010 and to Solomon H1121 his son, H1004 In this house, H3389 and in Jerusalem, H977 which I have chosen H7626 out of all the tribes H3478 of Israel, H7760 will I put H8034 my name H5865 for ever:
8 H3254 neither will I any more H5493 remove H7272 the foot H3478 of Israel H127 from off the land H5975 which I have appointed H1 for your fathers, H518 if H8104 only they will observe H6213 to do H518 all that H6680 I have commanded H8451 them, even all the law H2706 and the statutes H4941 and the ordinances H3027 given by H4872 Moses.
9 H4519 And Manasseh H8582 seduced H3063 Judah H3427 and the inhabitants H3389 of Jerusalem, H6213 so that they did H8582 evil H7451 more H1471 than did the nations H3068 whom Jehovah H8045 destroyed H6440 before H1121 the children H3478 of Israel.
10 H3068 And Jehovah H1696 spake H4519 to Manasseh, H5971 and to his people; H7181 but they gave no heed.
11 H3068 Wherefore Jehovah H935 brought H8269 upon them the captains of H8269 the host of H4428 the king H804 of Assyria, H3920 who took H4519 Manasseh H631 in chains, and bound him H5178 with fetters, H3212 and carried H631 him H894 to Babylon.
12 H6887 And when he was in distress, H2470 he besought H3068 Jehovah H430 his God, H3665 and humbled H3966 himself greatly H6440 before H430 the God H1 of his fathers.
13 H6419 And he prayed H6279 unto him; and he was entreated H8085 of him, and heard H8467 his supplication, H7725 and brought him again H3389 to Jerusalem H4438 into his kingdom. H4519 Then Manasseh H3045 knew H3068 that Jehovah H430 he was God.
14 H310 Now after this H1129 he built H2346 an outer wall H5892 to the city H1732 of David, H4628 on the west side H1521 of Gihon, H935 in H5158 the valley, H935 even to the entrance H1709 at the fish H8179 gate; H5437 and he compassed H6077 Ophel H1361 about with it, and raised it up H3966 to a very great height: H7760 and he put H2428 valiant H8269 captains H1219 in all the fortified H5892 cities H3063 of Judah.
15 H5493 And he took away H5236 the foreign H430 gods, H5566 and the idol H1004 out of the house H3068 of Jehovah, H4196 and all the altars H1129 that he had built H2022 in the mount H1004 of the house H3068 of Jehovah, H3389 and in Jerusalem, H7993 and cast H2351 them out H5892 of the city.
16 H1129 And he built H4196 up the altar H3068 of Jehovah, H2076 and offered H8002 thereon sacrifices H2077 of peace-offerings H8426 and of thanksgiving, H559 and commanded H3063 Judah H5647 to serve H3068 Jehovah, H430 the God H3478 of Israel.
17 H61 Nevertheless H5971 the people H2076 sacrificed H1116 still in the high places, H3068 but only unto Jehovah H430 their God.
18 H3499 Now the rest H1697 of the acts H4519 of Manasseh, H8605 and his prayer H430 unto his God, H1697 and the words H2374 of the seers H1696 that spake H8034 to him in the name H3068 of Jehovah, H430 the God H3478 of Israel, H1697 behold, they are written among the acts H4428 of the kings H3478 of Israel.
19 H8605 His prayer H6279 also, and how God was entreated H2403 of him, and all his sin H4604 and his trespass, H4725 and the places H1129 wherein he built H1116 high places, H5975 and set up H842 the Asherim H6456 and the graven images, H6440 before H3665 he humbled H3789 himself: behold, they are written H1697 in the history H2374 of Hozai.
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 in his stead.
21 H526 Amon H6242 was twenty H8147 and two H8141 years H1121 old H4427 when he began to reign; H4427 and he reigned H8147 two H8141 years H3389 in Jerusalem.
22 H6213 And he did H7451 that which was evil H5869 in the sight H3068 of Jehovah, H6213 as did H4519 Manasseh H1 his father; H526 and Amon H2076 sacrificed H6456 unto all the graven images H4519 which Manasseh H1 his father H6213 had made, H5647 and served them.
23 H3665 And he humbled H6440 not himself before H3068 Jehovah, H4519 as Manasseh H1 his father H3665 had humbled H526 himself; but this same Amon H819 trespassed H7235 more and more.
24 H5650 And his servants H7194 conspired H4191 against him, and put him to death H1004 in his own house.
