21:1 Manasseh was twelve years old when he began to reign; and he reigned fifty-five years in Jerusalem: and his mother`s name was Hephzibah.
21:2 He did that which was evil in the sight of Yahweh, after the abominations of the nations whom Yahweh cast out before the children of Israel.
21:3 For he built again the high places which Hezekiah his father had destroyed; and he reared up altars for Baal, and made an Asherah, as did Ahab king of Israel, and worshipped all the host of the sky, and served them.
21:4 He built altars in the house of Yahweh, whereof Yahweh said, In Jerusalem will I put my name.
21:5 He built altars for all the host of the sky in the two courts of the house of Yahweh.
21:6 He made his son to pass through the fire, and practiced sorcery, and used enchantments, and dealt with those who had familiar spirits, and with wizards: he worked much evil in the sight of Yahweh, to provoke him to anger.
21:7 He set the engraved image of Asherah, that he had made, in the house of which Yahweh said to David and to Solomon his son, In this house, and in Jerusalem, which I have chosen out of all the tribes of Israel, will I put my name forever;
21:8 neither will I cause the feet of Israel to wander any more out of the land which I gave their fathers, if only 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.
21:9 But they didn`t listen: and Manasseh seduced them to do that which is evil more than did the nations whom Yahweh destroyed before the children of Israel.
21:10 Yahweh spoke by his servants the prophets, saying,
21:12 therefore thus says Yahweh, the God of Israel, Behold, I bring such evil on Jerusalem and Judah, that whoever hears of it, both his ears shall tingle.
21:16 Moreover Manasseh shed innocent blood very much, until he had filled Jerusalem from one end to another; besides his sin with which he made Judah to sin, in doing that which was evil in the sight of Yahweh.
21:17 Now the rest of the acts of Manasseh, and all that he did, and his sin that he sinned, aren`t they written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah?
21:19 Amon was twenty-two years old when he began to reign; and he reigned two years in Jerusalem: and his mother`s name was Meshullemeth the daughter of Haruz of Jotbah.
21:20 He did that which was evil in the sight of Yahweh, as did Manasseh his father.
21:21 He walked in all the way that his father walked in, and served the idols that his father served, and worshipped them:
21:22 and he forsook Yahweh, the God of his fathers, and didn`t walk in the way of Yahweh.
21:23 The servants of Amon conspired against him, and put the king to death in his own house.
21:25 Now the rest of the acts of Amon which he did, aren`t they written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah?
