2 Kings 16:1-6

Ahaz Reigns over Judah

1 In the seventeenth * year of Pekah the son of Remaliah, 1Ahaz the son of Jotham, king of Judah, became king.
2 2Ahaz was twenty years old when he became king, and he reigned sixteen * years in Jerusalem; and he did not do what was right in the sight of the LORD his God, as his father David had done.
3 But he walked in the way of the kings of Israel, 3and even made his son pass through the fire, 4according to the abominations of the nations whom the LORD had driven out from before the sons of Israel.
4 He 5sacrificed and burned incense on the high places and on the hills and under every green tree.
5 Then 6Rezin king of Aram and Pekah son of Remaliah, king of Israel, came up to Jerusalem to wage war; and they besieged * Ahaz, 7but could not overcome him.
6 At that time Rezin king of Aram recovered 8Elath for Aram, and cleared the Judeans out of Elath entirely; and the Arameans came to Elath and have lived there to this day.
