- 1 Manasseh R681 was twelve years old when he became king, and he reigned fifty-five years in Jerusalem. 2 He R682 did evil in the sight of the LORD according to the abominations of the nations whom the LORD dispossessed before the sons of Israel. 3 For he R683 rebuilt the high places which Hezekiah his father had broken down; he R684 also erected altars for the Baals and made Asherim, F311 and worshiped all the host of heaven and served them. 4 He R685 built altars in the house of the LORD of which the LORD had said, "My name shall be in R686 Jerusalem forever." 5 For he built altars for all the host of heaven in the R687 two courts of the house of the LORD. 6 He R688 made his sons pass through the fire in the valley of Ben-hinnom; and he practiced witchcraft, used divination, practiced sorcery and dealt R689 with mediums and spiritists. He did much evil in the sight of the LORD, provoking Him to anger. 7 Then he put the R690 carved image of the idol which he had made in the house of God, of which God had said to David and to Solomon his son, "In R691 this house and in Jerusalem, which I have chosen from all the tribes of Israel, I will put My name forever; 8 and I will not again remove the foot of Israel from the land which R692 I have appointed for your fathers, if only they will observe to do all that I have commanded them according to all the law, the statutes and the ordinances given through Moses." 9 Thus Manasseh misled Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem to do more evil than the nations whom the LORD destroyed before the sons of Israel. 10 The LORD spoke to Manasseh and his people, but they R693 paid no attention.
