And as Josiah turned, he saw the tombs there on the mount. And he sent and took the bones out of the tombs and burned them on the altar and defiled it, 1according to the word of the LORD that the man of God proclaimed, who had predicted these things.
Then he said, "What is that monument that I see?" And the men of the city told him, 2"It is the tomb of the man of God who came from Judah and predicteda these things that you have done against the altar at Bethel."
And he said, "Let him be; let no man move his bones." So they let his bones alone, with the bones 3of the prophet who came out of Samaria.
