2 Kings 21

RHE 1 Manasses was twelve years old when he began to reign, and he reigned five and fifty years in Jerusalem: the name of his mother was Haphsiba. 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. RHE 2 And he did evil in the sight of the Lord, according to the idols of the nations, which the Lord destroyed from before the face of the children of Israel. 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. RHE 3 And he turned, and built up the high places, which Ezechias, his father, had destroyed: and he set up altars to Baal, and made groves, as Achab, the king of Israel, had done: and he adored all 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. RHE 4 And he built altars in the house of the Lord, of which the Lord said: In Jerusalem I will put my name. NIV 4 He built altars in the temple of the LORD, of which the LORD had said, “In Jerusalem I will put my Name.” RHE 5 And he built altars for all the host of heaven, in the two courts of the temple of the Lord. NIV 5 In the two courts of the temple of the LORD, he built altars to all the starry hosts. RHE 6 And he made his son pass through fire: and he used divinations, and observed omens, and appointed pythons, and multiplied soothsayers, to do evil before the Lord, and 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. RHE 7 He set also an idol of the grove, which he had made, in the temple of the Lord: concerning which the Lord said to David, and to Solomon his son: In this temple, and in Jerusalem, which I have chosen out of all the tribes of Israel, I will put my name for ever. 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. RHE 8 And I will no more make the feet of Israel to be moved out of the land, which I gave to their fathers: only if they will observe to do all that I have commanded them, according to the law which my servant Moses 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.” RHE 9 But they hearkened not: but were seduced by Manasses, to do evil more than the nations which the Lord destroyed before the children of Israel. 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. RHE 10 And the Lord spoke in the hand of his servants, the prophets, saying: NIV 10 The LORD said through his servants the prophets: RHE 11 Because Manasses, king of Juda, hath done these most wicked abominations, beyond all that the Amorrhites did before him, and hath made Juda also to sin with his filthy doings: 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. RHE 12 Therefore thus saith the Lord, the God of Israel: Behold, I will bring on evils upon Jerusalem and Juda: that whosoever shall hear of them, both his ears shall 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. RHE 13 And I will stretch over Jerusalem the line of Samaria, and the weight of the house of Achab: and I will efface Jerusalem, as writings tables are wont to be effaced, and I will erase and turn it, and draw the pencil often over the face thereof. 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. RHE 14 And I will leave the remnants of my inheritance, and will deliver them into the hands of their enemies: and they shall become a prey, and a spoil to 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; RHE 15 Because they have done evil before me, and have continued to provoke me, from the day that their fathers came out of Egypt, even unto 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.” RHE 16 Moreover, Manasses shed also very much innocent blood, till he filled Jerusalem up to the mouth: besides his sins, wherewith he made Juda to sin, to do evil before the Lord. 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. RHE 17 Now the rest of the acts of Manasses, and all that he did, and his sin, which he sinned, are they not written in the book of the words of the days of the kings of Juda? 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? RHE 18 And Manasses slept with his fathers, and was buried in the garden of his own house, in the garden of Oza: and Amon, his son, reigned in his stead. 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. RHE 19 Two and twenty years old was Amon when he began to reign, and he reigned two years in Jerusalem: the name of his mother was Messalemeth, the daughter of Harus, of Jeteba. 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. RHE 20 And he did evil in the sight of the Lord, as Manasses, his father, had done. NIV 20 He did evil in the eyes of the LORD, as his father Manasseh had done. RHE 21 And he walked in all the way in which his father had walked: and he served the abominations which his father had served, and he adored them. NIV 21 He followed completely the ways of his father, worshiping the idols his father had worshiped, and bowing down to them. RHE 22 And forsook the Lord, the God of his fathers, and walked not in the way of the Lord. NIV 22 He forsook the LORD, the God of his ancestors, and did not walk in obedience to him. RHE 23 And his servants plotted against him, and slew the king in his own house. NIV 23 Amon’s officials conspired against him and assassinated the king in his palace. RHE 24 But the people of the land slew all them that had conspired against king Amon: and made Josias, his son, their king in his stead. 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. RHE 25 But the rest of the acts of Amon, which he did, are they not written in the book of the words of the days of the kings of Juda? 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? RHE 26 And they buried him in his sepulchre, in the garden of Oza: and his son, Josias, reigned in his stead. NIV 26 He was buried in his tomb in the garden of Uzza. And Josiah his son succeeded him as king.
