2 Kings 21

LEB 1 Manasseh was twelve years old when he began to reign, and he reigned fifty-five years in Jerusalem. The name of his mother [was] Hephzibah. NIV 1 Manasseh was twelve years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem fifty-five years. His mother’s name was Hephzibah. LEB 2 He did evil in the eyes of Yahweh, according to the detestable things of the nations that Yahweh had driven out from the presence of the {Israelites}. NIV 2 He did evil in the eyes of the LORD, following the detestable practices of the nations the LORD had driven out before the Israelites. LEB 3 He returned and rebuilt the high places which Hezekiah his father had destroyed. He erected altars for Baal and made a pole of Asherah worship just as Ahab king of Israel had made, and he bowed down to all of the host of heaven and served them. NIV 3 He rebuilt the high places his father Hezekiah had destroyed; he also erected altars to Baal and made an Asherah pole, as Ahab king of Israel had done. He bowed down to all the starry hosts and worshiped them. LEB 4 He built altars in the temple of Yahweh [about] which Yahweh had said, "I will put my name in Jerusalem." NIV 4 He built altars in the temple of the LORD, of which the LORD had said, “In Jerusalem I will put my Name.” LEB 5 He built an altar to all of the host of heaven in the two courtyards of the temple of Yahweh. NIV 5 In the two courts of the temple of the LORD, he built altars to all the starry hosts. LEB 6 He made his son pass through the fire, practiced soothsaying and divination, and dealt with mediums and spiritists. He increased the doing of evil in the eyes of Yahweh to provoke him. NIV 6 He sacrificed his own son in the fire, practiced divination, sought omens, and consulted mediums and spiritists. He did much evil in the eyes of the LORD, arousing his anger. LEB 7 He put the image of the Asherah that he had made in the temple which Yahweh had said to David and to Solomon his son, "In this temple and in Jerusalem which I have chosen from all of the tribes of Israel, I will put my name forever. NIV 7 He took the carved Asherah pole he had made and put it in the temple, of which the LORD had said to David and to his son Solomon, “In this temple and in Jerusalem, which I have chosen out of all the tribes of Israel, I will put my Name forever. LEB 8 I will not again make the feet of Israel wander from the land which I have given to their ancestors, if they only observe to do according to all that I have commanded them, as far as the law that Moses my servant commanded them." NIV 8 I will not again make the feet of the Israelites wander from the land I gave their ancestors, if only they will be careful to do everything I commanded them and will keep the whole Law that my servant Moses gave them.” LEB 9 But Manasseh did not listen and tempted them to do evil more than the nations that Yahweh destroyed before the presence of the {Israelites}. NIV 9 But the people did not listen. Manasseh led them astray, so that they did more evil than the nations the LORD had destroyed before the Israelites. LEB 10 So Yahweh spoke by the hand of his servants the prophets, saying, NIV 10 The LORD said through his servants the prophets: LEB 11 "Because Manasseh the king of Judah committed these detestable things [and] did evil more than the Amorites did who were before him and caused even Judah to sin with his idols, NIV 11 “Manasseh king of Judah has committed these detestable sins. He has done more evil than the Amorites who preceded him and has led Judah into sin with his idols. LEB 12 therefore, thus says Yahweh the God of Israel, 'Look, I am bringing disaster upon Jerusalem and Judah about which the two ears of all who hear it will tingle. NIV 12 Therefore this is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: I am going to bring such disaster on Jerusalem and Judah that the ears of everyone who hears of it will tingle. LEB 13 I will stretch out over Jerusalem the measuring line of Samaria and the plumb line of the house of Ahab, and I will wipe Jerusalem as one wipes the dish; he wipes it and turns it on its face. NIV 13 I will stretch out over Jerusalem the measuring line used against Samaria and the plumb line used against the house of Ahab. I will wipe out Jerusalem as one wipes a dish, wiping it and turning it upside down. LEB 14 I will give up the remainder of my inheritance, and I will give them into the hand of their enemies. They shall become as prey and as spoil for all their enemies, NIV 14 I will forsake the remnant of my inheritance and give them into the hands of enemies. They will be looted and plundered by all their enemies; LEB 15 because they have done evil in my eyes and were provoking me from the day that their ancestors came out from Egypt up to this day.'" NIV 15 they have done evil in my eyes and have aroused my anger from the day their ancestors came out of Egypt until this day.” LEB 16 Moreover, Manasseh shed very much innocent blood until he filled Jerusalem {from one end to another}, apart from his sin which he caused Judah to sin by doing evil in the eyes of Yahweh. NIV 16 Moreover, Manasseh also shed so much innocent blood that he filled Jerusalem from end to end—besides the sin that he had caused Judah to commit, so that they did evil in the eyes of the LORD. LEB 17 The remainder of the acts of Manasseh and all that he did and his sin that he committed, [are] they not written on the scroll of the events of the days of the kings of Judah? NIV 17 As for the other events of Manasseh’s reign, and all he did, including the sin he committed, are they not written in the book of the annals of the kings of Judah? LEB 18 Then Manasseh slept with his ancestors and was buried in the garden of his palace, in the garden of Uzza. Amon his son became king in his place. NIV 18 Manasseh rested with his ancestors and was buried in his palace garden, the garden of Uzza. And Amon his son succeeded him as king. LEB 19 Amon was twenty-two years old when he began to reign, and he reigned two years in Jerusalem. The name of his mother [was] Meshullemeth the daughter of Haruz from Jotbah. NIV 19 Amon was twenty-two years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem two years. His mother’s name was Meshullemeth daughter of Haruz; she was from Jotbah. LEB 20 He did evil in the eyes of Yahweh as Manasseh his father had done. NIV 20 He did evil in the eyes of the LORD, as his father Manasseh had done. LEB 21 He walked in all of the way which his father had walked, and he served the idols which his father had served and bowed down to them. NIV 21 He followed completely the ways of his father, worshiping the idols his father had worshiped, and bowing down to them. LEB 22 He abandoned Yahweh the God of his ancestors and did not walk in the way of Yahweh. NIV 22 He forsook the LORD, the God of his ancestors, and did not walk in obedience to him. LEB 23 The servants of Amon conspired against him and killed the king in his palace. NIV 23 Amon’s officials conspired against him and assassinated the king in his palace. LEB 24 But the people of the land killed all who conspired against the king and made Josiah his son king in his place. NIV 24 Then the people of the land killed all who had plotted against King Amon, and they made Josiah his son king in his place. LEB 25 The remainder of the acts of Amon that he did, [are] they not written on the scroll of the events of the days of the kings of Judah? NIV 25 As for the other events of Amon’s reign, and what he did, are they not written in the book of the annals of the kings of Judah? LEB 26 They buried him in his tomb in the garden of Uzza, and Josiah his son became king in place of him. NIV 26 He was buried in his tomb in the garden of Uzza. And Josiah his son succeeded him as king.
