"Manasseh king of Judah has committed these detestable sins. He has done more evil1 than the Amorites2 who preceded him and has led Judah into sin with his idols.312
Therefore this is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: I am going to bring such disaster4 on Jerusalem and Judah that the ears of everyone who hears of it will tingle.513
I will stretch out over Jerusalem the measuring line used against Samaria and the plumb line6 used against the house of Ahab. I will wipe7 out Jerusalem as one wipes a dish, wiping it and turning it upside down.
I will forsake8 the remnant9 of my inheritance and hand them over to their enemies. They will be looted and plundered by all their foes,
because they have done evil10 in my eyes and have provoked11 me to anger from the day their forefathers came out of Egypt until this day."
Moreover, Manasseh also shed so much innocent blood12 that he filled Jerusalem from end to end--besides the sin that he had caused Judah13 to commit, so that they did evil in the eyes of the LORD.
As for the other events of Manasseh's reign, and all he did, including the sin he committed, are they not written in the book of the annals of the kings of Judah?
Manasseh rested with his fathers and was buried in his palace garden,14 the garden of Uzza. And Amon his son succeeded him as king.
Amon was twenty-two years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem two years. His mother's name was Meshullemeth daughter of Haruz; she was from Jotbah.
He did evil15 in the eyes of the LORD, as his father Manasseh had done.
He walked in all the ways of his father; he worshiped the idols his father had worshiped, and bowed down to them.
