2 Kings 21:1-6

Manasseh Reigns in Judah

1 a  Manasseh was twelve years old when he began to reign, and he reigned fifty-five years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name was Hephzibah. 2And he did what was evil in the sight of the  Lord, b  according to the despicable practices of the nations whom the  Lord drove out before the people of Israel. 3For he rebuilt the high places c  that Hezekiah his father had destroyed, and he erected altars for Baal and made d  an Asherah, e  as Ahab king of Israel had done, f  and worshiped all the host of heaven and served them. 4 g  And he built altars in the house of the  Lord, of which the  Lord had said h  “In Jerusalem will I put my name.” 5And he built altars i  for all the host of heaven in j  the two courts of the house of the  Lord. 6 k  And he burned his son as an offering
Hebrew made his son pass through the fire
and m  used fortune-telling and n  omens and dealt o  with mediums and with necromancers. He did much evil in the sight of the  Lord, provoking him to anger.
