2 Kings 21 Text (WEB)
  1. Manasseh was twelve years old when he began to reign; and he reigned fifty-five years in Jerusalem: and his mother's name was Hephzibah.
  2. He did that which was evil in the sight of Yahweh, after the abominations of the nations whom Yahweh cast out before the children of Israel.
  3. For he built again the high places which Hezekiah his father had destroyed; and he reared up altars for Baal, and made an Asherah, as did Ahab king of Israel, and worshiped all the army of the sky, and served them.
  4. He built altars in the house of Yahweh, of which Yahweh said, "I will put my name in Jerusalem."
  5. He built altars for all the army of the sky in the two courts of the house of Yahweh.
  6. He made his son to pass through the fire, and practiced sorcery, and used enchantments, and dealt with those who had familiar spirits, and with wizards: he worked much evil in the sight of Yahweh, to provoke him to anger.
  7. He set the engraved image of Asherah, that he had made, in the house of which Yahweh said to David and to Solomon his son, "In this house, and in Jerusalem, which I have chosen out of all the tribes of Israel, will I put my name forever;
  8. neither will I cause the feet of Israel to wander any more out of the land which I gave their fathers, if only they will observe to do according to all that I have commanded them, and according to all the law that my servant Moses commanded them."
  9. But they didn't listen: and Manasseh seduced them to do that which is evil more than did the nations whom Yahweh destroyed before the children of Israel.
  10. Yahweh spoke by his servants the prophets, saying,
  11. "Because Manasseh king of Judah has done these abominations, and has done wickedly above all that the Amorites did, who were before him, and has made Judah also to sin with his idols;
  12. therefore thus says Yahweh, the God of Israel, 'Behold, I bring such evil on Jerusalem and Judah, that whoever hears of it, both his ears shall tingle.
  13. I will stretch over Jerusalem the line of Samaria, and the plummet of the house of Ahab; and I will wipe Jerusalem as a man wipes a dish, wiping it and turning it upside down.
  14. I will cast off the remnant of my inheritance, and deliver them into the hand of their enemies. They will become a prey and a spoil to all their enemies;
  15. because they have done that which is evil in my sight, and have provoked me to anger, since the day their fathers came forth out of Egypt, even to this day.'"
  16. Moreover Manasseh shed innocent blood very much, until he had filled Jerusalem from one end to another; besides his sin with which he made Judah to sin, in doing that which was evil in the sight of Yahweh.
  17. Now the rest of the acts of Manasseh, and all that he did, and his sin that he sinned, aren't they written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah?
  18. Manasseh slept with his fathers, and was buried in the garden of his own house, in the garden of Uzza: and Amon his son reigned in his place.
  19. Amon was twenty-two years old when he began to reign; and he reigned two years in Jerusalem: and his mother's name was Meshullemeth the daughter of Haruz of Jotbah.
  20. He did that which was evil in the sight of Yahweh, as did Manasseh his father.
  21. He walked in all the way that his father walked in, and served the idols that his father served, and worshiped them:
  22. and he forsook Yahweh, the God of his fathers, and didn't walk in the way of Yahweh.
  23. The servants of Amon conspired against him, and put the king to death in his own house.
  24. But the people of the land killed all those who had conspired against king Amon; and the people of the land made Josiah his son king in his place.
  25. Now the rest of the acts of Amon which he did, aren't they written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah?
  26. He was buried in his tomb in the garden of Uzza: and Josiah his son reigned in his place.
2 Kings 21 Text (Hebrew)
  1. בן־שתים עשרה שנה מנשה במלכו וחמשים וחמש שנה מלך בירושלם ושם אמו חפצי־בה׃
  2. ויעש הרע בעיני יהוה כתועבת הגוים אשר הוריש יהוה מפני בני ישראל׃
  3. וישב ויבן את־הבמות אשר אבד חזקיהו אביו ויקם מזבחת לבעל ויעש אשרה כאשר עשה אחאב מלך ישראל וישתחו לכל־צבא השמים ויעבד אתם׃
  4. ובנה מזבחת בבית יהוה אשר אמר יהוה בירושלם אשים את־שמי׃
  5. ויבן מזבחות לכל־צבא השמים בשתי חצרות בית־יהוה׃
  6. והעביר את־בנו באש ועוןן ונחש ועשה אוב וידענים הרבה לעשות הרע בעיני יהוה להכעיס׃
  7. וישם את־פסל האשרה אשר עשה בבית אשר אמר יהוה אל־דוד ואל־שלמה בנו בבית הזה ובירושלם אשר בחרתי מכל שבטי ישראל אשים את־שמי לעולם׃
  8. ולא אסיף להניד רגל ישראל מן־האדמה אשר נתתי לאבותם רק אם־ישמרו לעשות ככל אשר צויתים ולכל־התורה אשר־צוה אתם עבדי משה׃
  9. ולא שמעו ויתעם מנשה לעשות את־הרע מן־הגוים אשר השמיד יהוה מפני בני ישראל׃
  10. וידבר יהוה ביד־עבדיו הנביאים לאמר׃
  11. יען אשר עשה מנשה מלך־יהודה התעבות האלה הרע מכל אשר־עשו האמרי אשר לפניו ויחטא גם־את־יהודה בגלוליו׃ ף
  12. לכן כה־אמר יהוה אלהי ישראל הנני מביא רעה על־ירושלם ויהודה אשר כל־ תצלנה שתי אזניו׃
  13. ונטיתי על־ירושלם את קו שמרון ואת־משקלת בית אחאב ומחיתי את־ירושלם כאשר־ימחה את־הצלחת מחה והפך על־פניה׃
  14. ונטשתי את שארית נחלתי ונתתים ביד איביהם והיו לבז ולמשסה לכל־איביהם׃
  15. יען אשר עשו את־הרע בעיני ויהיו מכעסים אתי מן־היום אשר יצאו אבותם ממצרים ועד היום הזה׃
  16. וגם דם נקי שפך מנשה הרבה מאד עד אשר־מלא את־ירושלם פה לפה לבד מחטאתו אשר החטיא את־יהודה לעשות הרע בעיני יהוה׃
  17. ויתר דברי מנשה וכל־אשר עשה וחטאתו אשר חטא הלא־הם כתובים על־ספר דברי הימים למלכי יהודה׃
  18. וישכב מנשה עם־אבתיו ויקבר בגן־ביתו בגן־עזא וימלך אמון בנו תחתיו׃ ף
  19. בן־עשרים ושתים שנה אמון במלכו ושתים שנים מלך בירושלם ושם אמו משלמת בת־חרוץ מן־יטבה׃
  20. ויעש הרע בעיני יהוה כאשר עשה מנשה אביו׃
  21. וילך בכל־הדרך אשר־הלך אביו ויעבד את־הגללים אשר עבד אביו וישתחו להם׃
  22. ויעזב את־יהוה אלהי אבתיו ולא הלך בדרך יהוה׃
  23. ויקשרו עבדי־אמון עליו וימיתו את־המלך בביתו׃
  24. ויך עם־הארץ את כל־הקשרים על־המלך אמון וימליכו עם־הארץ את־יאשיהו בנו תחתיו׃
  25. ויתר דברי אמון אשר עשה הלא־הם כתובים על־ספר דברי הימים למלכי יהודה׃
  26. ויקבר אתו בקברתו בגן־עזא וימלך יאשיהו בנו תחתיו׃ ף
2 Kings 21 Text (Greek)
  1. υιος δωδεκα ετων μανασσης εν τω βασιλευειν αυτον και πεντηκοντα και πεντε ετη εβασιλευσεν εν ιερουσαλημ και ονομα τη μητρι αυτου
  2. και εποιησεν το πονηρον εν οφθαλμοις κυριου κατα τα βδελυγματα των εθνων ων εξηρεν κυριος απο προσωπου των υιων
  3. και επεστρεψεν και ωκοδομησεν τα υψηλα α κατεσπασεν εζεκιας ο πατηρ αυτου και ανεστησεν θυσιαστηριον τη βααλ και εποιησεν αλση καθως εποιησεν αχααβ βασιλευς ισραηλ και προσεκυνησεν παση τη δυναμει του ουρανου και εδουλευσεν
  4. και ωκοδομησεν θυσιαστηριον εν οικω κυριου ως ειπεν εν ιερουσαλημ θησω το ονομα
  5. και ωκοδομησεν θυσιαστηριον παση τη δυναμει του ουρανου εν ταις δυσιν αυλαις οικου
  6. και διηγεν τους υιους αυτου εν πυρι και εκληδονιζετο και οιωνιζετο και εποιησεν θελητην και γνωστας επληθυνεν του ποιειν το πονηρον εν οφθαλμοις κυριου παροργισαι
  7. και εθηκεν το γλυπτον του αλσους εν τω οικω ω ειπεν κυριος προς δαυιδ και προς σαλωμων τον υιον αυτου εν τω οικω τουτω και εν ιερουσαλημ η εξελεξαμην εκ πασων φυλων ισραηλ και θησω το ονομα μου εκει εις τον
  8. και ου προσθησω του σαλευσαι τον ποδα ισραηλ απο της γης ης εδωκα τοις πατρασιν αυτων οιτινες φυλαξουσιν παντα οσα ενετειλαμην κατα πασαν την εντολην ην ενετειλατο αυτοις ο δουλος μου
  9. και ουκ ηκουσαν και επλανησεν αυτους μανασσης του ποιησαι το πονηρον εν οφθαλμοις κυριου υπερ τα εθνη α ηφανισεν κυριος εκ προσωπου υιων
  10. και ελαλησεν κυριος εν χειρι δουλων αυτου των προφητων
  11. ανθ' ων οσα εποιησεν μανασσης ο βασιλευς ιουδα τα βδελυγματα ταυτα τα πονηρα απο παντων ων εποιησεν ο αμορραιος ο εμπροσθεν και εξημαρτεν και γε ιουδα εν τοις ειδωλοις
  12. ουχ ουτως ταδε λεγει κυριος ο θεος ισραηλ ιδου εγω φερω κακα επι ιερουσαλημ και επι ιουδα ωστε παντος ακουοντος ηχησει αμφοτερα τα ωτα
  13. και εκτενω επι ιερουσαλημ το μετρον σαμαρειας και το σταθμιον οικου αχααβ και απαλειψω την ιερουσαλημ καθως απαλειφεται ο αλαβαστρος απαλειφομενος και καταστρεφεται επι προσωπον
  14. και απωσομαι το υπολειμμα της κληρονομιας μου και παραδωσω αυτους εις χειρας εχθρων αυτων και εσονται εις διαρπαγην και εις προνομην πασιν τοις εχθροις
  15. ανθ' ων οσα εποιησαν το πονηρον εν οφθαλμοις μου και ησαν παροργιζοντες με απο της ημερας ης εξηγαγον τους πατερας αυτων εξ αιγυπτου και εως της ημερας
  16. και γε αιμα αθωον εξεχεεν μανασσης πολυ σφοδρα εως ου επλησεν την ιερουσαλημ στομα εις στομα πλην των αμαρτιων αυτου ων εξημαρτεν τον ιουδαν του ποιησαι το πονηρον εν οφθαλμοις
  17. και τα λοιπα των λογων μανασση και παντα οσα εποιησεν και η αμαρτια αυτου ην ημαρτεν ουχι ταυτα γεγραμμενα επι βιβλιω λογων των ημερων τοις βασιλευσιν
  18. και εκοιμηθη μανασσης μετα των πατερων αυτου και εταφη εν τω κηπω του οικου αυτου εν κηπω οζα και εβασιλευσεν αμων υιος αυτου αντ'
  19. υιος εικοσι και δυο ετων αμων εν τω βασιλευειν αυτον και δυο ετη εβασιλευσεν εν ιερουσαλημ και ονομα τη μητρι αυτου μεσολλαμ θυγατηρ αρους εξ
  20. και εποιησεν το πονηρον εν οφθαλμοις κυριου καθως εποιησεν μανασσης ο πατηρ
  21. και επορευθη εν παση οδω η επορευθη ο πατηρ αυτου και ελατρευσεν τοις ειδωλοις οις ελατρευσεν ο πατηρ αυτου και προσεκυνησεν
  22. και εγκατελιπεν τον κυριον θεον των πατερων αυτου και ουκ επορευθη εν οδω
  23. και συνεστραφησαν οι παιδες αμων προς αυτον και εθανατωσαν τον βασιλεα εν τω οικω
  24. και επαταξεν πας ο λαος της γης παντας τους συστραφεντας επι τον βασιλεα αμων και εβασιλευσεν ο λαος της γης τον ιωσιαν υιον αυτου αντ'
  25. και τα λοιπα των λογων αμων οσα εποιησεν ουκ ιδου ταυτα γεγραμμενα επι βιβλιω λογων των ημερων τοις βασιλευσιν
  26. και εθαψαν αυτον εν τω ταφω αυτου εν τω κηπω οζα και εβασιλευσεν ιωσιας υιος αυτου αντ'
2 Kings 21 Text (Latin)
  1. Duodecim annorum erat Manasses cum regnare cœpisset, et quinquaginta quinque annis regnavit in Jerusalem : nomen matris ejus Haphsiba.
  2. Fecitque malum in conspectu Domini, juxta idola gentium, quas delevit Dominus a facie filiorum Israël.
  3. Conversusque est, et ædificavit excelsa, quæ dissipaverat Ezechias pater ejus : et erexit aras Baal, et fecit lucos sicut fecerat Achab rex Israël, et adoravit omnem militiam cæli, et coluit eam.
  4. Exstruxitque aras in domo Domini, de qua dixit Dominus : In Jerusalem ponam nomen meum.
  5. Et exstruxit altaria universæ militiæ cæli in duobus atriis templi Domini.
  6. Et traduxit filium suum per ignem : et ariolatus est, et observavit auguria, et fecit pythones, et aruspices multiplicavit, ut faceret malum coram Domino, et irritaret eum.
  7. Posuit quoque idolum luci, quem fecerat, in templo Domini, super quod locutus est Dominus ad David, et ad Salomonem filium ejus : In templo hoc, et in Jerusalem, quam elegi de cunctis tribubus Israël, ponam nomen meum in sempiternum.
  8. Et ultra non faciam commoveri pedem Israël de terra, quam dedi patribus eorum : si tamen custodierint opere omnia quæ præcepi eis, et universam legem, quam mandavit eis servus meus Moyses.
  9. Illi vero non audierunt : sed seducti sunt a Manasse, ut facerent malum super gentes, quas contrivit Dominus a facie filiorum Israël.
  10. Locutusque est Dominus in manu servorum suorum prophetarum, dicens :
  11. Quia fecit Manasses rex Juda abominationes istas pessimas, super omnia quæ fecerunt Amorrhæi ante eum, et peccare fecit etiam Judam in immunditiis suis :
  12. propterea hæc dicit Dominus Deus Israël : Ecce ego inducam mala super Jerusalem et Judam : ut quicumque audierit, tinniant ambæ aures ejus.
  13. Et extendam super Jerusalem funiculum Samariæ, et pondus domus Achab : et delebo Jerusalem, sicut deleri solent tabulæ : et delens vertam, et ducam crebrius stylum super faciem ejus.
  14. Dimittam vero reliquias hæreditatis meæ, et tradam eas in manus inimicorum ejus : eruntque in vastitatem, et in rapinam cunctis adversariis suis :
  15. eo quod fecerint malum coram me, et perseveraverint irritantes me, ex die qua egressi sunt patres eorum ex Ægypto, usque ad hanc diem.
  16. Insuper et sanguinem innoxium fudit Manasses multum nimis, donec impleret Jerusalem usque ad os : absque peccatis suis, quibus peccare fecit Judam, ut faceret malum coram Domino.
  17. Reliqua autem sermonum Manasse, ut universa quæ fecit, et peccatum ejus, quod peccavit, nonne hæc scripta sunt in libro sermonum dierum regum Juda ?
  18. Dormivitque Manasses cum patribus suis, et sepultus est in horto domus suæ, in horto Oza : et regnavit Amon filius ejus pro eo.
  19. Viginti duorum annorum erat Amon cum regnare cœpisset : duobus quoque annis regnavit in Jerusalem : nomen matris ejus Messalemeth filia Harus de Jeteba.
  20. Fecitque malum in conspectu Domini, sicut fecerat Manasses pater ejus.
  21. Et ambulavit in omni via, per quam ambulaverat pater ejus : servivitque immunditiis, quibus servierat pater ejus, et adoravit eas,
  22. et dereliquit Dominum Deum patrum suorum, et non ambulavit in via Domini.
  23. Tetenderuntque ei insidias servi sui, et interfecerunt regem in domo sua.
  24. Percussit autem populus terræ omnes, qui conjuraverant contra regem Amon, et constituerunt sibi regem Josiam filium ejus pro eo.
  25. Reliqua autem sermonum Amon, quæ fecit, nonne hæc scripta sunt in libro sermonum dierum regum Juda ?
  26. Sepelieruntque eum in sepulchro suo, in horto Oza : et regnavit Josias filius ejus pro eo.
2 Kings 21 Text (KJV)
  1. Manasseh was twelve years old when he began to reign, and reigned fifty and five years in Jerusalem. And his mother's name was Hephzi-bah.
  2. And he did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD, after the abominations of the heathen, whom the LORD cast out before the children of Israel.
  3. For he built up again the high places which Hezekiah his father had destroyed; and he reared up altars for Baal, and made a grove, as did Ahab king of Israel; and worshipped all the host of heaven, and served them.
  4. And he built altars in the house of the LORD, of which the LORD said, In Jerusalem will I put my name.
  5. And he built altars for all the host of heaven in the two courts of the house of the LORD.
  6. And he made his son pass through the fire, and observed times, and used enchantments, and dealt with familiar spirits and wizards: he wrought much wickedness in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger.
  7. And he set a graven image of the grove that he had made in the house, of which the LORD said to David, and to Solomon his son, In this house, and in Jerusalem, which I have chosen out of all tribes of Israel, will I put my name for ever:
  8. Neither will I make the feet of Israel move any more out of the land which I gave their fathers; only if they will observe to do according to all that I have commanded them, and according to all the law that my servant Moses commanded them.
  9. But they hearkened not: and Manasseh seduced them to do more evil than did the nations whom the LORD destroyed before the children of Israel.
  10. And the LORD spake by his servants the prophets, saying,
  11. Because Manasseh king of Judah hath done these abominations, and hath done wickedly above all that the Amorites did, which were before him, and hath made Judah also to sin with his idols:
  12. Therefore thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Behold, I am bringing such evil upon Jerusalem and Judah, that whosoever heareth of it, both his ears shall tingle.
  13. And I will stretch over Jerusalem the line of Samaria, and the plummet of the house of Ahab: and I will wipe Jerusalem as a man wipeth a dish, wiping it, and turning it upside down.
  14. And I will forsake the remnant of mine inheritance, and deliver them into the hand of their enemies; and they shall become a prey and a spoil to all their enemies;
  15. Because they have done that which was evil in my sight,and have provoked me to anger, since the day their fathers came forth out of Egypt, even unto this day.
  16. Moreover Manasseh shed innocent blood very much, till he had filled Jerusalem from one end to another; beside his sin wherewith he made Judah to sin, in doing that which was evil in the sight of the LORD.
  17. Now the rest of the acts of Manasseh, and all that he did, and his sin that he sinned, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah?
  18. And Manasseh slept with his fathers, and was buried in the garden of his own house, in the garden of Uzza: and Amon his son reigned in his stead.
  19. Amon was twenty and two years old when he began to reign, and he reigned two years in Jerusalem. And his mother's name was Meshullemeth, the daughter of Haruz of Jotbah.
  20. And he did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD, as his father Manasseh did.
  21. And he walked in all the way that his father walked in, and served the idols that his father served, and worshipped them:
  22. And he forsook the LORD God of his fathers, and walked not in the way of the LORD.
  23. And the servants of Amon conspired against him, and slew the king in his own house.
  24. And the people of the land slew all them that had conspired against king Amon; and the people of the land made Josiah his son king in his stead.
  25. Now the rest of the acts of Amon which he did, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah?
  26. And he was buried in his sepulchre in the garden of Uzza: and Josiah his son reigned in his stead.

Commentary

2 Kings, chapter 21, tells of rule of the evil king Manasseh over the southern Kingdom of Judah from 687 to 643 BC. He was the son and heir of Hezekiah, a king who trusted God.

The chapter records that Manasseh was an evil king who reversed the good religious policies of his father. Manasseh had high places and altars to foreign gods built. Because of this trust in other gods, 2 Kings 21:13 records that God chose to bring judgement against Judah

I will stretch over Jerusalem the line of Samaria, and the plummet of the house of Ahab; and I will wipe Jerusalem as a man wipes a dish, wiping it and turning it upside down.

2 Chronicles 33 records that Manasseh was captured by the Assyrian armies and taken prisoner, but repented and so was restored by God to his place as king of Judah.

Manasseh was succeeded by Amon.
