1 H4519 Manasseh H8147 was twelve H6240 H8141 years H1121 old H4427 when he began to reign [H8800] H4427 , and he reigned [H8804] H2572 fifty H2568 and five H8141 years H3389 in Jerusalem:
2 H6213 But did [H8799] H7451 that which was evil H5869 in the sight H3068 of the LORD H8441 , like unto the abominations H1471 of the heathen H3068 , whom the LORD H3423 had cast out [H8689] H6440 before H1121 the children H3478 of Israel.
3 H1129 For he built [H8799] H7725 again [H8799] H1116 the high places H3169 which Hezekiah H1 his father H5422 had broken down [H8765] H6965 , and he reared up [H8686] H4196 altars H1168 for Baalim H6213 , and made [H8799] H842 groves H7812 , and worshipped [H8691] H6635 all the host H8064 of heaven H5647 , and served [H8799] them.
4 H1129 Also he built [H8804] H4196 altars H1004 in the house H3068 of the LORD H3068 , whereof the LORD H559 had said [H8804] H3389 , In Jerusalem H8034 shall my name H5769 be for ever.
5 H1129 And he built [H8799] H4196 altars H6635 for all the host H8064 of heaven H8147 in the two H2691 courts H1004 of the house H3068 of the LORD.
6 H5674 And he caused H1121 his children H5674 to pass through [H8689] H784 the fire H1516 in the valley H1121 of the son H2011 of Hinnom H6049 : also he observed times [H8782] H5172 , and used enchantments [H8765] H3784 , and used witchcraft [H8765] H6213 , and dealt [H8804] H178 with a familiar spirit H3049 , and with wizards H6213 : he wrought [H8800] H7235 much [H8689] H7451 evil H5869 in the sight H3068 of the LORD H3707 , to provoke him to anger [H8687] .
7 H7760 And he set [H8799] H6459 a carved image H5566 , the idol H6213 which he had made [H8804] H1004 , in the house H430 of God H430 , of which God H559 had said [H8804] H1732 to David H8010 and to Solomon H1121 his son H1004 , In this house H3389 , and in Jerusalem H977 , which I have chosen [H8804] H7626 before all the tribes H3478 of Israel H7760 , will I put [H8799] H8034 my name H5865 for ever:
8 H3254 Neither will I any more [H8686] H5493 remove [H8687] H7272 the foot H3478 of Israel H5921 from out H127 of the land H5975 which I have appointed [H8689] H1 for your fathers H518 ; so that H8104 they will take heed [H8799] H6213 to do [H8800] H6680 all that I have commanded [H8765] H8451 them, according to the whole law H2706 and the statutes H4941 and the ordinances H3027 by the hand H4872 of Moses.
9 H4519 So Manasseh H8582 made H3063 Judah H3427 and the inhabitants [H8802] H3389 of Jerusalem H8582 to err [H8686] H6213 , and to do [H8800] H7451 worse H1471 than the heathen H3068 , whom the LORD H8045 had destroyed [H8689] H6440 before H1121 the children H3478 of Israel.
10 H3068 And the LORD H1696 spake [H8762] H4519 to Manasseh H5971 , and to his people H7181 : but they would not hearken [H8689] .
11 H3068 Wherefore the LORD H935 brought [H8686] H8269 upon them the captains of H6635 the host of H4428 the king H804 of Assyria H3920 , which took [H8799] H4519 Manasseh H2336 among the thorns H631 , and bound him [H8799] H5178 with fetters H3212 , and carried [H8686] H894 him to Babylon.
12 H6887 And when he was in affliction [H8687] H2470 , he besought [H8765] H3068 the LORD H430 his God H3665 , and humbled [H8735] H3966 himself greatly H6440 before H430 the God H1 of his fathers,
13 H6419 And prayed [H8691] H6279 unto him: and he was intreated [H8735] H8085 of him, and heard [H8799] H8467 his supplication H7725 , and brought him again [H8686] H3389 to Jerusalem H4438 into his kingdom H4519 . Then Manasseh H3045 knew [H8799] H3068 that the LORD H430 he was God.
14 H310 Now after this H1129 he built [H8804] H2346 a wall H2435 without H5892 the city H1732 of David H4628 , on the west side H1521 of Gihon H5158 , in the valley H935 , even to the entering in [H8800] H1709 at the fish H8179 gate H5437 , and compassed [H8804] H6077 about Ophel H1361 , and raised it up [H8686] H3966 a very great height H7760 , and put [H8799] H8269 captains H2428 of war H1219 in all the fenced [H8803] H5892 cities H3063 of Judah.
15 H5493 And he took away [H8686] H5236 the strange H430 gods H5566 , and the idol H1004 out of the house H3068 of the LORD H4196 , and all the altars H1129 that he had built [H8804] H2022 in the mount H1004 of the house H3068 of the LORD H3389 , and in Jerusalem H7993 , and cast [H8686] H2351 them out H5892 of the city.
16 H1129 And he repaired [H8799] H4196 the altar H3068 of the LORD H2076 , and sacrificed [H8799] H8002 thereon peace H2077 offerings H8426 and thank offerings H559 , and commanded [H8799] H3063 Judah H5647 to serve [H8800] H3068 the LORD H430 God H3478 of Israel.
17 H61 Nevertheless H5971 the people H2076 did sacrifice [H8802] H1116 still in the high places H3068 , yet unto the LORD H430 their God only.
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 [H8764] H8034 to him in the name H3068 of the LORD H430 God H3478 of Israel H1697 , behold, they are written in the book H4428 of the kings H3478 of Israel.
19 H8605 His prayer H6279 also, and how God was intreated [H8736] H2403 of him, and all his sin H4604 , and his trespass H4725 , and the places H1129 wherein he built [H8804] H1116 high places H5975 , and set up [H8689] H842 groves H6456 and graven images H6440 , before H3665 he was humbled [H8736] H3789 : behold, they are written [H8803] H1697 among the sayings H2374 of the seers [H8676] H2335 .
20 H4519 So Manasseh H7901 slept [H8799] H1 with his fathers H6912 , and they buried [H8799] H1004 him in his own house H526 : and Amon H1121 his son H4427 reigned [H8799] in his stead.
21 H526 Amon H8147 was two H6242 and twenty H8141 years H1121 old H4427 when he began to reign [H8800] H4427 , and reigned [H8804] H8147 two H8141 years H3389 in Jerusalem.
22 H6213 But he did [H8799] H7451 that which was evil H5869 in the sight H3068 of the LORD H6213 , as did [H8804] H4519 Manasseh H1 his father H526 : for Amon H2076 sacrificed [H8765] H6456 unto all the carved images H4519 which Manasseh H1 his father H6213 had made [H8804] H5647 , and served [H8799] them;
23 H3665 And humbled [H8738] H6440 not himself before H3068 the LORD H4519 , as Manasseh H1 his father H3665 had humbled [H8736] H526 himself; but Amon H819 trespassed H7235 more and more [H8689] .
24 H5650 And his servants H7194 conspired [H8799] H4191 against him, and slew [H8686] H1004 him in his own house.
