4 Then the king commanded Hilkiah the high priest and the R706 priests of the second order and the doorkeepers, F295 to R707 bring out of the temple of the LORD all the vessels that were made for Baal, for Asherah, F296 and for all the host of heaven; and he R708 burned them outside Jerusalem in the fields of the Kidron, and carried their ashes to Bethel. 5 He did away with the idolatrous priests whom the kings of Judah had appointed to burn incense in the high places in the cities of Judah and in the surrounding area of Jerusalem, also those who burned incense to Baal, to the sun and to the moon and to the constellations and to all the host R709 of heaven. 6 He brought out the Asherah from the house of the LORD outside Jerusalem to the brook Kidron, and burned it at the brook Kidron, and ground R710 it to dust, and threw R711 its dust on the graves of the common F297 people. 7 He also broke down the houses of the male R712 cult prostitutes which were in the house of the LORD, where the R713 women were weaving hangings F298 for the Asherah. 8 Then he brought all the priests from the cities of Judah, and defiled the high places where the priests had burned incense, from Geba R714 to Beersheba; and he broke down the high places of the gates which were at the entrance of the gate of Joshua the governor of the city, which were on one's left at the city gate. 9 Nevertheless the R715 priests of the high places did not go up to the altar of the LORD in Jerusalem, but they ate unleavened bread among their brothers. 10 He R716 also defiled Topheth, F299 which is in the valley of the son of Hinnom, that R717 no man might make his son or his daughter pass through the fire for Molech. R718 11 He did away with the horses which the kings of Judah had given to the sun, R719 at the entrance of the house of the LORD, by the chamber of Nathan-melech the official, which was in the precincts; and he burned the chariots of the sun with fire. 12 The R720 altars which were on the roof, the upper chamber of Ahaz, which the kings of Judah had made, and the R721 altars which Manasseh had made in the two courts of the house of the LORD, the king broke down; and he smashed F300 them there and threw R722 their dust into the brook Kidron. 13 The high places which were before Jerusalem, which were on the right of the R723 mount of destruction which Solomon the king of Israel had built for Ashtoreth R724 the abomination of the Sidonians, and for Chemosh R725 the abomination of Moab, and for Milcom the abomination of the sons of Ammon, the king defiled. 14 He R726 broke in pieces the sacred pillars and cut down the Asherim and filled R727 their places with human bones. 15 Furthermore, the R728 altar that was at Bethel and the high R729 place which Jeroboam the son of Nebat, who made Israel sin, had made, even that altar and the high place he broke down. Then he demolished R730 F301 its stones, ground them to dust, and burned the Asherah. 16 Now when Josiah turned, he saw the graves that were there on the mountain, and he sent and took the bones from the graves and burned them on the altar and defiled it according R731 to the word of the LORD which the man of God proclaimed, who proclaimed these things. 17 Then he said, "What is this monument that I see?" And the men of the city told him, "It R732 is the grave of the man of God who came from Judah and proclaimed these things which you have done against the altar of Bethel." 18 He said, "Let him alone; let no one disturb his bones." So they left F302 his bones undisturbed with R733 the bones of the prophet who came from Samaria. 19 Josiah also removed all the houses of the high places which were in R734 the cities of Samaria, which the kings of Israel had made provoking the F303 LORD; and he did to them just F304 as he had done in Bethel. 20 All the priests of the high places who were there he R735 slaughtered on the altars and burned human bones on them; then he returned to Jerusalem. 21 Then the king commanded all the people saying, "Celebrate R736 the Passover to the LORD your God as R737 it is written in this book of the covenant." 22 Surely R738 such a Passover had not been celebrated from the days of the judges who judged Israel, nor in all the days of the kings of Israel and of the kings of Judah. 23 But in the eighteenth year of King Josiah, this Passover was observed to the LORD in Jerusalem. 24 Moreover, Josiah removed F305 the R739 mediums and the spiritists and the teraphim R740 and the R741 idols and all the abominations that were seen in the land of Judah and in Jerusalem, that R742 he might confirm F306 the words of the law which were written in R743 the book that Hilkiah the priest found in the house of the LORD.
