I will judge Jerusalem by the same standard I used for Samaria and by the same measure I used for the family of Ahab. I will wipe away the people of Jerusalem as one wipes a dish and turns it upside down.
Then I will reject even those few of my people who are left, and I will hand them over as plunder for their enemies.
For they have done great evil in my sight and have angered me ever since their ancestors came out of Egypt."
Manasseh also murdered many innocent people until Jerusalem was filled from one end to the other with innocent blood. This was in addition to the sin that he caused the people of Judah to commit, leading them to do evil in the LORD's sight.
The rest of the events in Manasseh's reign and all his deeds, including the sins he committed, are recorded in The Book of the History of the Kings of Judah.
When Manasseh died, he was buried in the palace garden, the garden of Uzza. Then his son Amon became the next king.
Amon was twenty-two years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem two years. His mother was Meshullemeth, the daughter of Haruz from Jotbah.
He did what was evil in the LORD's sight, just as his father, Manasseh, had done.
He followed the example of his father, worshiping the same idols that his father had worshiped.
He abandoned the LORD, the God of his ancestors, and he refused to follow the LORD's ways.
Then Amon's own servants plotted against him and assassinated him in his palace.
