2 Chronicles 33

CJB 1 M'nasheh was twelve years old when he began his reign, and he ruled for fifty-five years in Yerushalayim. NIV 1 Manasseh was twelve years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem fifty-five years. CJB 2 He did what was evil from ADONAI's perspective, following the disgusting practices of the nations whom ADONAI had expelled ahead of the people of Isra'el. 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. CJB 3 For he rebuilt the high places which Hizkiyahu his father had smashed; he erected altars for the ba'alim, made sacred poles and worshipped all the army of heaven and served them. NIV 3 He rebuilt the high places his father Hezekiah had demolished; he also erected altars to the Baals and made Asherah poles. He bowed down to all the starry hosts and worshiped them. CJB 4 He erected altars in the house of ADONAI, concerning which ADONAI had said, "My name will be in Yerushalayim forever." NIV 4 He built altars in the temple of the LORD, of which the LORD had said, “My Name will remain in Jerusalem forever.” CJB 5 He erected altars for all the army of heaven in the two courtyards of the house of ADONAI. NIV 5 In both courts of the temple of the LORD, he built altars to all the starry hosts. CJB 6 He made his children pass through the fire [as a sacrifice] in the Ben-Hinnom Valley. He practiced soothsaying, divination and sorcery; and he appointed mediums and persons who used spirit guides. He did much that was evil from ADONAI's perspective, thus provoking him to anger. NIV 6 He sacrificed his children in the fire in the Valley of Ben Hinnom, practiced divination and witchcraft, sought omens, and consulted mediums and spiritists. He did much evil in the eyes of the LORD, arousing his anger. CJB 7 He set the carved image of the idol he had made in the house of God, concerning which God had told David and Shlomo his son, "In this house and in Yerushalayim, which I have chosen out of all the tribes of Isra'el, I will put my name forever. NIV 7 He took the image he had made and put it in God’s temple, of which God 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. CJB 8 Also I will not remove the feet of Isra'el from the land I assigned your ancestors, if only they will take heed to obey every order I have given them, that is, all the Torah, laws and rulings that came through Moshe." NIV 8 I will not again make the feet of the Israelites leave the land I assigned to your ancestors, if only they will be careful to do everything I commanded them concerning all the laws, decrees and regulations given through Moses.” CJB 9 M'nasheh caused Y'hudah and the people of Yerushalayim to go astray, so that they did even worse things than the nations whom ADONAI destroyed ahead of the people of Isra'el. NIV 9 But Manasseh led Judah and the people of Jerusalem astray, so that they did more evil than the nations the LORD had destroyed before the Israelites. CJB 10 ADONAI spoke to M'nasheh and to his people, but they paid no attention. NIV 10 The LORD spoke to Manasseh and his people, but they paid no attention. CJB 11 Therefore ADONAI brought against them the commanders of the king of Ashur's army. They took M'nasheh captive with hooks, bound him in chains and carried him off to Bavel. NIV 11 So the LORD brought against them the army commanders of the king of Assyria, who took Manasseh prisoner, put a hook in his nose, bound him with bronze shackles and took him to Babylon. CJB 12 Then, when he was in distress, he began to appease the anger of ADONAI, abjectly humbling himself before the God of his ancestors. NIV 12 In his distress he sought the favor of the LORD his God and humbled himself greatly before the God of his ancestors. CJB 13 He prayed to him; and God was moved by his plea, paid attention to his entreaty and brought him back to Yerushalayim, to his kingly office. Then M'nasheh understood that ADONAI really is God. NIV 13 And when he prayed to him, the LORD was moved by his entreaty and listened to his plea; so he brought him back to Jerusalem and to his kingdom. Then Manasseh knew that the LORD is God. CJB 14 After this he built an outer wall for the City of David on the west side of Gichon, in the valley, extending as far as the entrance at the Fish Gate; it encompassed the 'Ofel, and he built it very high. He stationed army commanders in all the fortified cities of Y'hudah. NIV 14 Afterward he rebuilt the outer wall of the City of David, west of the Gihon spring in the valley, as far as the entrance of the Fish Gate and encircling the hill of Ophel; he also made it much higher. He stationed military commanders in all the fortified cities in Judah. CJB 15 He removed the foreign gods and the idol from the house of ADONAI and all the altars he had built on the hill of the house of ADONAI and in Yerushalayim, and threw them out of the city. NIV 15 He got rid of the foreign gods and removed the image from the temple of the LORD, as well as all the altars he had built on the temple hill and in Jerusalem; and he threw them out of the city. CJB 16 He repaired the altar of ADONAI and offered on it sacrifices as peace offerings and for thanksgiving; and he ordered Y'hudah to serve ADONAI the God of Isra'el. NIV 16 Then he restored the altar of the LORD and sacrificed fellowship offerings and thank offerings on it, and told Judah to serve the LORD, the God of Israel. CJB 17 However, the people continued sacrificing on the high places, although only to ADONAI their God. NIV 17 The people, however, continued to sacrifice at the high places, but only to the LORD their God. CJB 18 Other activities of M'nasheh, his prayer to his God and the words of the seers who spoke to him in the name of ADONAI the God of Isra'el are recorded in the Annals of the Kings of Isra'el. NIV 18 The other events of Manasseh’s reign, including his prayer to his God and the words the seers spoke to him in the name of the LORD, the God of Israel, are written in the annals of the kings of Israel. CJB 19 Also his prayer and how God was moved by his plea, all his sin and disloyalty, and the locations where he built high places and set up the sacred poles and carved images before he humbled himself are written in the History of the Seers. NIV 19 His prayer and how God was moved by his entreaty, as well as all his sins and unfaithfulness, and the sites where he built high places and set up Asherah poles and idols before he humbled himself—all these are written in the records of the seers. CJB 20 Then M'nasheh slept with his ancestors and was buried at his own house, and Amon his son took his place as king. NIV 20 Manasseh rested with his ancestors and was buried in his palace. And Amon his son succeeded him as king. CJB 21 Amon was twenty-two years old when he began his reign, and he ruled for two years in Yerushalayim. NIV 21 Amon was twenty-two years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem two years. CJB 22 He did what was evil from ADONAI's perspective, as had M'nasheh his father. Amon sacrificed to all the carved images that M'nasheh his father had made, and served them. NIV 22 He did evil in the eyes of the LORD, as his father Manasseh had done. Amon worshiped and offered sacrifices to all the idols Manasseh had made. CJB 23 He did not humble himself before ADONAI, as M'nasheh his father had done; rather, this Amon kept adding to his guilt. NIV 23 But unlike his father Manasseh, he did not humble himself before the LORD; Amon increased his guilt. CJB 24 His servants conspired against him and put the king to death in his own palace. NIV 24 Amon’s officials conspired against him and assassinated him in his palace. CJB 25 But the people of the land put to death all those who had been part of the conspiracy against King Amon. Then the people of the land made Yoshiyahu his son king in place of him. NIV 25 Then the people of the land killed all who had plotted against King Amon, and they made Josiah his son king in his place.
