Neither did he leave of the people to Jehoahaz but fifty horsemen, and ten chariots, and ten thousand footmen; for the king of Syria had destroyed them, and had made them like the dust by threshing .
And the king commanded Hilkiah the high priest, and the priests of the second order, and the keepers of the door, to bring forth out of the temple of the LORD all the vessels that were made for Baal, and for the grove, and for all the host of heaven: and he burned them without Jerusalem in the fields of Kidron, and carried the ashes of them unto Bethel.
And he brought out the grove from the house of the LORD, without Jerusalem, unto the brook Kidron, and burned it at the brook Kidron, and stamped it small to powder, and cast the powder thereof upon the graves of the children of the people.
And the altars that were on the top of the upper chamber of Ahaz, which the kings of Judah had made , and the altars which Manasseh had made in the two courts of the house of the LORD, did the king beat down , and brake them down from thence, and cast the dust of them into the brook Kidron.
Moreover the altar that was at Bethel, and the high place which Jeroboam the son of Nebat, who made Israel to sin , had made , both that altar and the high place he brake down , and burned the high place, and stamped it small to powder, and burned the grove.
