Second Chronicles 33


33:1 Manasseh [was] twelve years old when he began to reign, and
 he reigned fifty and five years in Jerusalem:
33:2 But did [that which was] evil in the sight of the LORD,
 like the abominations of the heathen, whom the LORD had cast
 out before the children of Israel.
33:3 For he built again the high places which Hezekiah his
 father had broken down; and he reared up altars for Baalim, and
 made groves, and worshiped all the host of heaven, and served
 them.
33:4 Also he built altars in the house of the LORD, of which the
 LORD had said, In Jerusalem shall my name be for ever.
33:5 And he built altars for all the host of heaven in the two
 courts of the house of the LORD.
33:6 And he caused his children to pass through the fire in the
 valley of the son of Hinnom: also he observed times, and used
 enchantments, and used witchcraft, and dealt with a familiar
 spirit, and with wizards: he wrought much evil in the sight of
 the LORD, to provoke him to anger.
33:7 And he set a carved image, the idol which he had made, in
 the house of God, of which God had said to David and to Solomon
 his son, In this house, and in Jerusalem, which I have chosen
 before all the tribes of Israel, will I put my name for ever:
33:8 Neither will I any more remove the foot of Israel from the
 land which I have appointed for your fathers; provided they
 will take heed to do all that I have commanded them, according
 to the whole law and the statutes and the ordinances by the
 hand of Moses.
33:9 So Manasseh made Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem to
 err, [and] to do worse than the heathen, whom the LORD had
 destroyed before the children of Israel.
33:10 And the LORD spoke to Manasseh, and to his people: but
 they would not hearken.
33:11 Wherefore the LORD brought upon them the captains of the
 army of the king of Assyria, who took Manasseh among the
 thorns, and bound him with fetters, and carried him to Babylon.
33:12 And when he was in affliction, he besought the LORD his
 God, and humbled himself greatly before the God of his fathers,
33:13 And prayed to him: and he was entreated by him, and heard
 his supplication, and brought him again to Jerusalem into his
 kingdom. Then Manasseh knew that the LORD he [is] God.
33:14 Now after this, he built a wall without the city of David,
 on the west side of Gihon, in the valley, even to the entrance
 at the fish-gate, and compassed about Ophel, and raised it up a
 very great highth, and put captains of war in all the fortified
 cities of Judah.
33:15 And he took away the strange gods, and the idol out of the
 house of the LORD, and all the altars that he had built in the
 mount of the house of the LORD, and in Jerusalem, and cast
 [them] out of the city.
33:16 And he repaired the altar of the LORD, and sacrificed on
 it peace-offerings and thank-offerings, and commanded Judah to
 serve the LORD God of Israel.
33:17 Nevertheless, the people sacrificed still in the high
 places, [yet] to the LORD their God only.
33:18 Now the rest of the acts of Manasseh, and his prayer to
 his God, and the words of the seers that spoke to him in the
 name of the LORD God of Israel, behold, they [are written] in
 the book of the kings of Israel.
33:19 His prayer also, and [how God] was entreated by him, and
 all his sin, and his trespass, and the places in which he built
 high places, and set up groves and graven images, before he was
 humbled: behold, they [are] written among the sayings of the
 seers.
33:20 So Manasseh slept with his fathers, and they buried him in
 his own house: and Amon his son reigned in his stead.
33:21 Amon [was] two and twenty years old when he began to
 reign, and reigned two years in Jerusalem.
33:22 But he did [that which was] evil in the sight of the LORD,
 as did Manasseh his father: for Amon sacrificed to all the
 carved images which Manasseh his father had made, and served
 them;
33:23 And humbled not himself before the LORD, as Manasseh his
 father had humbled himself; but Amon trespassed more and more.
33:24 And his servants conspired against him, and slew him in
 his own house.
33:25 But 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.
