2 Chronicles 33

CHAPTER 33

Manasseh Reigns in Judah

[2was a son 3being 4twelve 5years old 1Manasseh] in his taking reign, and fifty-five years he reigned in Jerusalem. And he acted wickedly before the  lord according to all the abominations of the nations which the  lord removed from in front of the sons of Israel. And he returned and built the high places which [3tore down 1Hezekiah 2his father]. And he set up altars to the Baals, and he made sacred groves, and he did obeisance to all the military of the heaven, and he served to them. And he built altars in the house of the  lord, in which the  lord said, [3in 4Jerusalem 2will be 1My name] into the eon. And he built altars to all the military of the heaven in the two courtyards of the house of the  lord. And he led his children in fire in the ground of the Son of Hinnom. And he prognosticated, and foretold, and administered potions, and established ones who deliver oracles, and enchanters. And he multiplied to act wickedly before the  lord, to provoke him to anger. And he put the carved and the molten image, which he made, in the house of God, in which God said to David and to Solomon his son, In this house, and in Jerusalem, which I chose from out of all the tribes of Israel, I will put my name there into the eon; and I shall not proceed to shake the foot of Israel from the land of which I gave to their fathers, if only they guard to do all things which I gave charge to them, according to all the law, and the orders, and the judgments given by the hand of Moses. And Manasseh misled Judah and the ones dwelling in Jerusalem, to act wickedly above all the nations which the  lord removed from in front of the sons of Israel. 10 And the  lord spoke with Manasseh, and unto his people, and they did not listen.

Manasseh Led unto Babylon in Bonds

11 And the  lord led upon them the rulers of the force of the king of Assyria. And they overtook Manasseh in bonds, and they tied him in shackles, and they led him into Babylon. 12 And as he was afflicted, he sought the face of the  lord his God, and was humbled exceedingly from in front of the God of his fathers. 13 And he prayed to him, and he heeded him, and he heeded his yelling, and he returned him unto Jerusalem over his kingdom. And Manasseh knew that the  lord -- he is God. 14 And after these things, he built a wall outside the city of David, from the southwest of Gihon, by the rushing stream going forth by the [2gate 1fishing] -- a circuit to the Ophel, and he raised it high exceedingly. And he placed rulers of the force in all the [2cities 1walled] in Judah. 15 And he removed the gods of the aliens, and the carved image from out of the house of the  lord, and all the altars which he built on the mountain of the house of the  lord, and in Jerusalem; and he cast them outside the city. 16 And he set up the altar of the  lord, and he sacrificed upon it a sacrifice of deliverance offering and a praise offering, and he told Judah to serve to the  lord, to the God of Israel. 17 Only still the people [2upon 3the 4high places 1sacrificed], except to the  lord their God. 18 And the rest of the words of Manasseh, and his prayer to God, and the words of the seers, of the ones speaking to him in the name of the  lord God of Israel, behold, they are upon the words of the kings of Israel. 19 And his prayer, and as God heeded him, and all his sins, and his defections, and the places upon which he built on them the high places, and established there sacred groves, and carved images, before he returned, behold, they are written by the words of the seers.

Amon Reigns in Judah

20 And Manasseh slept with his fathers, and they entombed him in the garden of his house. And [3reigned 1Amon 2his son] instead of him. 21 [2was a son 3being 4twenty 5and 6two 7years old 1Amon] in his taking reign, and two years he reigned in Jerusalem. 22 And he did the wicked thing before the  lord as did Manasseh his father. And to all the idols which [3made 1Manasseh 2his father], Amon sacrificed and served to them. 23 And he was not humbled before the  lord as [3was humbled 1Manasseh 2his father]; for his son Amon multiplied in trespassing. 24 And [2attacked 3him 1his servants], and struck him in his house. 25 But [5struck 1the 2people 3of the 4land] the ones attacking against king Amon. And [5gave reign to 1the 2people 3of the 4land] Josiah his son instead of him.
