John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
2 Kings 23:24

Moreover, the workers with familiar spirits, and the wizards,
&c.] Who were not to be allowed among the Israelites, ( Deuteronomy 18:10 Deuteronomy 18:11 )

and the images; or teraphim: and the idols, and all the abominations;
which were worshipped by the Heathens, and introduced among the Jews, and forbidden by the word of God:

that were spied in the land of Judah, and in Jerusalem, did Josiah put
away;
for which, it seems, diligent search was made, and wherever they were discovered were removed:

that he might perform the words of the law, which were written in the
book that Hilkiah the priest found in the house of the Lord;
both with respect to witchcraft and idolatry, see ( Leviticus 20:27 ) ( Exodus 20:4 Exodus 20:5 ) ( 23:24 ) .
