2 Kings 21

GW 1 Manasseh was 12 years old when he began to rule, and he ruled for 55 years in Jerusalem. His mother's name 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. GW 2 He did what the LORD considered evil by copying the disgusting things done by the nations that the LORD had forced out of the Israelites' way. 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. GW 3 He rebuilt the illegal places of worship that his father Hezekiah had destroyed. He set up altars dedicated to Baal and made a pole dedicated to the goddess Asherah as King Ahab of Israel had done. Manasseh, like Ahab, worshiped and served the entire army of heaven. 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. GW 4 He built altars in the LORD's temple, where the LORD 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.” GW 5 In the two courtyards of the LORD's temple, he built altars for the entire army of heaven. NIV 5 In the two courts of the temple of the LORD, he built altars to all the starry hosts. GW 6 He burned his son as a sacrifice, consulted fortunetellers, cast evil spells, and appointed [royal] mediums and psychics. He did many things that made the LORD furious. 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. GW 7 Manasseh had an idol of Asherah made. Then he set it up in the temple, where the LORD had said to David and his son Solomon, "I have chosen this temple and Jerusalem from all the tribes of Israel. I will put my name here 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. GW 8 I will never again make Israel's feet wander from the land that I gave to their ancestors if they will obey all the commands and all the Teachings that my servant Moses gave 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.” GW 9 (But they wouldn't obey.) Manasseh misled Israel so that they did more evil things than the nations that the LORD had destroyed when the Israelites arrived in the land. 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. GW 10 Then the LORD spoke through his servants the prophets: NIV 10 The LORD said through his servants the prophets: GW 11 "King Manasseh of Judah has done disgusting things, things more evil than what the Amorites who [were here] before him had done. Manasseh has also made Judah sin by [worshiping] 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. GW 12 So this is what I, the LORD God of Israel, said: I'm going to bring such a disaster on Jerusalem and Judah that the ears of everyone who hears about it will ring. 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. GW 13 I will measure Jerusalem with the measuring line used for Samaria and the plumb line used for Ahab's dynasty. I will wipe out Jerusalem in the same way that a dish is wiped out and turned upside down. 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. GW 14 I will abandon the rest of my people. I will put them under the control of their enemies, and they will become property that their enemies capture. 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; GW 15 I will do this because they have done what I consider evil and have been making me furious from the time their ancestors left Egypt until 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.” GW 16 In addition to his sin that he led Judah to commit in front of the LORD, Manasseh also killed a lot of innocent people from one end of Jerusalem to the other. 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. GW 17 Isn't everything else about Manasseh--everything he did, the sins he committed--written in the official records 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? GW 18 Manasseh lay down in death with his ancestors. He was buried in the garden of his own palace, in the garden of Uzza. His son Amon succeeded him as king. 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. GW 19 Amon was 22 years old when he began to rule, and he ruled for 2 years in Jerusalem. His mother was Meshullemeth, 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. GW 20 He did what the LORD considered evil, as his father Manasseh had done. NIV 20 He did evil in the eyes of the LORD, as his father Manasseh had done. GW 21 He lived like his father in every way and worshiped and prayed to the idols his father had worshiped. NIV 21 He followed completely the ways of his father, worshiping the idols his father had worshiped, and bowing down to them. GW 22 He abandoned the LORD God of his ancestors and didn't live the LORD's way. NIV 22 He forsook the LORD, the God of his ancestors, and did not walk in obedience to him. GW 23 Amon's officials plotted against him and killed him in his palace. NIV 23 Amon’s officials conspired against him and assassinated the king in his palace. GW 24 Then the people of the land killed everyone who had plotted against King Amon. They made his son Josiah 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. GW 25 Isn't everything else about Amon--the things he did--written in the official record 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? GW 26 He was buried in his tomb in the garden of Uzza. His son Josiah succeeded him as king. NIV 26 He was buried in his tomb in the garden of Uzza. And Josiah his son succeeded him as king.
