\\INTRODUCTION TO 2 KINGS 21\\

In this chapter a short history is given of the two wicked reigns of
Manasseh and Amon; Manasseh is charged with great idolatry, with
enchantments and witchcrafts, and seducing the children of Israel,
\\#2Ki 21:1-9\\ and a prophecy is given out of the destruction of
Jerusalem for his sins, \\#2Ki 21:10-16\\, and an account is given of
his death and burial, \\#2Ki 21:17,18\\, and of his son and successor
Amon, and the evils committed by him, \\#2Ki 21:19-22\\ and of the
conspiracy against his life, which succeeded, and Josiah his son
reigned in his stead, \\#2Ki 21:23-26\\.
