Teks -- 2 Kings 21:1-26 (NET)
Manasseh’s Reign over Judah21:1 Manasseh was twelve years old when he became king , and he reigned for fifty-five years in Jerusalem . His mother was Hephzibah . 21:2 He did evil in the sight of the Lord and committed the same horrible sins practiced by the nations whom the Lord drove out from before the Israelites . 21:3 He rebuilt the high places that his father Hezekiah had destroyed ; he set up altars for Baal and made an Asherah pole just like King Ahab of Israel had done . He bowed down to all the stars in the sky and worshiped them. 21:4 He built altars in the Lord’s temple , about which the Lord had said , “Jerusalem will be my home .” 21:5 In the two courtyards of the Lord’s temple he built altars for all the stars in the sky . 21:6 He passed his son through the fire and practiced divination and omen reading . He set up a ritual pit to conjure up underworld spirits , and appointed magicians to supervise it. He did a great amount of evil in the sight of the Lord , provoking him to anger . 21:7 He put an idol of Asherah he had made in the temple , about which the Lord had said to David and to his son Solomon , “This temple in Jerusalem , which I have chosen out of all the tribes of Israel , will be my permanent home. 21:8 I will not make Israel again leave the land I gave to their ancestors , provided that they carefully obey all I commanded them, the whole law my servant Moses ordered them to obey.” 21:9 But they did not obey , and Manasseh misled them so that they sinned more than the nations whom the Lord had destroyed from before the Israelites . 21:10 So the Lord announced through his servants the prophets : 21:11 “King Manasseh of Judah has committed horrible sins . He has sinned more than the Amorites before him and has encouraged Judah to sin by worshiping his disgusting idols . 21:12 So this is what the Lord God of Israel says , ‘I am about to bring disaster on Jerusalem and Judah . The news will reverberate in the ears of those who hear about it. 21:13 I will destroy Jerusalem the same way I did Samaria and the dynasty of Ahab . I will wipe Jerusalem clean, just as one wipes a plate on both sides . 21:14 I will abandon this last remaining tribe among my people and hand them over to their enemies ; they will be plundered and robbed by all their enemies , 21:15 because they have done evil in my sight and have angered me from the time their ancestors left Egypt right up to this very day !’” 21:16 Furthermore Manasseh killed so many innocent people, he stained Jerusalem with their blood from end to end , in addition to encouraging Judah to sin by doing evil in the sight of the Lord . 21:17 The rest of the events of Manasseh’s reign and all his accomplishments , as well as the sinful acts he committed , are recorded in the scroll called the Annals of the Kings of Judah . 21:18 Manasseh passed away and was buried in his palace garden , the garden of Uzzah , and his son Amon replaced him as king .
Amon’s Reign over Judah21:19 Amon was twenty-two years old when he became king , and he reigned for two years in Jerusalem . His mother was Meshullemeth , the daughter of Haruz , from Jotbah . 21:20 He did evil in the sight of the Lord , just like his father Manasseh had done . 21:21 He followed in the footsteps of his father and worshiped and bowed down to the disgusting idols which his father had worshiped . 21:22 He abandoned the Lord God of his ancestors and did not follow the Lord’s instructions . 21:23 Amon’s servants conspired against him and killed the king in his palace . 21:24 The people of the land executed all those who had conspired against King Amon , and they made his son Josiah king in his place . 21:25 The rest of Amon’s accomplishments are recorded in the scroll called the Annals of the Kings of Judah . 21:26 He was buried in his tomb in the garden of Uzzah , and his son Josiah replaced him as king .
