II Kings 21 (asv)
II Kings 21 (asv)
21:10And Jehovah spake by his servants the prophets, saying, 21:11Because Manasseh king of Judah hath done these abominations, and hath done wickedly above all that the Amorites did, that were before him, and hath made Judah also to sin with his idols; 21:12therefore thus saith Jehovah, the God of Israel, Behold, I bring such evil upon Jerusalem and Judah, that whosoever heareth of it, both his ears shall tingle. 21:13And I will stretch over Jerusalem the line of Samaria, and the plummet of the house of Ahab; and I will wipe Jerusalem as a man wipeth a dish, wiping it and turning it upside down. 21:14And I will cast off the remnant of mine inheritance, and deliver them into the hand of their enemies; and they shall become a prey and a spoil to all their enemies; 21:15because they have done that which is evil in my sight, and have provoked me to anger, since the day their fathers came forth out of Egypt, even unto this day.
21:16Moreover Manasseh shed innocent blood very much, till he had filled Jerusalem from one end to another; besides his sin wherewith he made Judah to sin, in doing that which was evil in the sight of Jehovah. 21:17Now the rest of the acts of Manasseh, and all that he did, and his sin that he sinned, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah? 21:18And Manasseh slept with his fathers, and was buried in the garden of his own house, in the garden of Uzza: and Amon his son reigned in his stead.
21:19Amon was twenty and 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. 21:20And he did that which was evil in the sight of Jehovah, as did Manasseh his father. 21:21And he walked in all the way that his father walked in, and served the idols that his father served, and worshipped them: 21:22and he forsook Jehovah, the God of his fathers, and walked not in the way of Jehovah. 21:23And the servants of Amon conspired against him, and put the king to death in his own house. 21:24But 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. 21:25Now the rest of the acts of Amon which he did, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah? 21:26And he was buried in his sepulchre in the garden of Uzza: and Josiah his son reigned in his stead.
