2 Chronicles 33


1  Manasseh4519 was twelve8147 6240 years8141 old1121 when he began to reign,4427 and he reigned4427 fifty2572 and five2568 years8141 in Jerusalem:3389

2  But did6213 that which was evil7451 in the sight5869 of the LORD,3068 like unto the abominations8441 of the heathen,1471 whom834 the LORD3068 had cast out3423 before4480 6440 the children1121 of Israel.3478

3  For he built1129 again7725 853 the high places1116 which834 Hezekiah3169 his father1 had broken down,5422 and he reared up6965 altars4196 for Baalim,1168 and made6213 groves,842 and worshiped7812 all3605 the host6635 of heaven,8064 and served5647 them.

4  Also he built1129 altars4196 in the house1004 of the LORD,3068 whereof834 the LORD3068 had said,559 In Jerusalem3389 shall my name8034 be1961 forever.5769

5  And he built1129 altars4196 for all3605 the host6635 of heaven8064 in the two8147 courts2691 of the house1004 of the LORD.3068

6  And he1931 caused 853 his children1121 to pass5674 through the fire784 in the valley1516 of the son1121 of Hinnom:2011 also he observed times,6049 and used enchantments,5172 and used witchcraft,3784 and dealt with6213 a familiar spirit,178 and with wizards:3049 he wrought6213 much7235 evil7451 in the sight5869 of the LORD,3068 to provoke him to anger.3707

7  And he set7760 853 a carved image,6459 the idol5566 which834 he had made,6213 in the house1004 of God,430 of which834 God430 had said559 to413 David1732 and to413 Solomon8010 his son,1121 In this2088 house,1004 and in Jerusalem,3389 which834 I have chosen977 before all4480 3605 the tribes7626 of Israel,3478 will I put7760 853 my name8034 forever:5865

8  Neither3808 will I any more3254 remove5493 853 the foot7272 of Israel3478 from out of4480 5921 the land127 which834 I have appointed5975 for your fathers;1 so that7535 518 they will take heed8104 to do6213 853 all3605 that834 I have commanded6680 them, according to the whole3605 law8451 and the statutes2706 and the ordinances4941 by the hand3027 of Moses.4872

9  So Manasseh4519 made 853 Judah3063 and the inhabitants3427 of Jerusalem3389 to err,8582 and to do6213 worse7451 than4480 the heathen,1471 whom834 the LORD3068 had destroyed8045 before4480 6440 the children1121 of Israel.3478

10  And the LORD3068 spoke1696 to413 Manasseh,4519 and to413 his people:5971 but they would not3808 hearken.7181

11  Wherefore the LORD3068 brought935 upon5921 853 them the captains8269 of the host of6635 the king4428 of Assyria,804 which834 took3920 853 Manasseh4519 among the thorns,2336 and bound631 him with fetters,5178 and carried1980 him to Babylon.894

12  And when he was in affliction,6887 he besought2470 853 the LORD6440 3068 his God,430 and humbled himself3665 greatly3966 before4480 6440 the God430 of his fathers,1

13  And prayed6419 unto413 him: and he was entreated6279 of him, and heard8085 his supplication,8467 and brought him again7725 to Jerusalem3389 into his kingdom.4438 Then Manasseh4519 knew3045 that3588 the LORD3068 he1931 was God.430

14  Now after310 this3651 he built1129 a wall2346 without2435 the city5892 of David,1732 on the west side4628 of Gihon,1521 in the valley,5158 even to the entering in935 at the fish1709 gate8179 and compassed about5437 Ophel,6077 and raised it up a very great height,1361 3966 and put7760 captains8269 of war2428 in all3605 the fenced1219 cities5892 of Judah.3063

15  And he took away5493 853 the strange5236 gods,430 and the idol5566 out of the house4480 1004 of the LORD,3068 and all3605 the altars4196 that834 he had built1129 in the mount2022 of the house1004 of the LORD,3068 and in Jerusalem,3389 and cast7993 them out of2351 the city.5892

16  And he repaired1129 853 the altar4196 of the LORD,3068 and sacrificed2076 thereon5921 peace8002 offerings2077 and thank offerings,8426 and commanded559 Judah3063 to serve5647 853 the LORD3068 God430 of Israel.3478

17  Nevertheless61 the people5971 did sacrifice2076 still5750 in the high places,1116 yet unto the LORD3068 their God430 only.7535

18  Now the rest3499 of the acts of1697 Manasseh,4519 and his prayer8605 unto413 his God,430 and the words1697 of the seers2374 that spoke1696 to413 him in the name8034 of the LORD3068 God430 of Israel,3478 behold,2009 they are written in5921 the book1697 of the kings4428 of Israel.3478

19  His prayer8605 also, and how God was entreated6279 of him, and all3605 his sin,2403 and his trespass,4604 and the places4725 wherein834 he built1129 high places,1116 and set up5975 groves842 and graven images,6456 before6440 he was humbled:3665 behold,2009 they are written3789 among5921 the sayings1697 of the seers.2335

20  So Manasseh4519 slept7901 with5973 his fathers,1 and they buried6912 him in his own house:1004 and Amon526 his son1121 reigned4427 in his stead.8478

21  Amon526 was two8147 and twenty6242 years8141 old1121 when he began to reign,4427 and reigned4427 two8147 years8141 in Jerusalem.3389

22  But he did6213 that which was evil7451 in the sight5869 of the LORD,3068 as834 did6213 Manasseh4519 his father:1 for Amon526 sacrificed2076 unto all3605 the carved images6456 which834 Manasseh4519 his father1 had made,6213 and served5647 them;

23  And humbled not himself3808 3665 before4480 6440 the LORD,3068 as Manasseh4519 his father1 had humbled himself;3665 but3588 Amon526 trespassed819 more and more.7235

24  And his servants5650 conspired7194 against5921 him, and slew4191 him in his own house.1004

25  But the people5971 of the land776 slew5221 853 all3605 them that had conspired7194 against5921 king4428 Amon;526 and the people5971 of the land776 made Josiah his son king4427 853 2977 1121 in his stead.8478


1 ὢν δέκα δύο ἐτῶν Μανασσης ἐν τῷ βασιλεῦσαι αὐτὸν καὶ πεντήκοντα πέντε ἔτη ἐβασίλευσεν ἐν Ιερουσαλημ

2 καὶ ἐποίησεν τὸ πονηρὸν ἐναντίον κυρίου ἀπὸ πάντων τῶν βδελυγμάτων τῶν ἐθνῶν οὓς ἐξωλέθρευσεν κύριος ἀπὸ προσώπου τῶν υἱῶν Ισραηλ

3 καὶ ἐπέστρεψεν καὶ ᾠκοδόμησεν τὰ ὑψηλά ἃ κατέσπασεν Εζεκιας ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἔστησεν στήλας ταῖς Βααλιμ καὶ ἐποίησεν ἄλση καὶ προσεκύνησεν πάσῃ τῇ στρατιᾷ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ ἐδούλευσεν αὐτοῖς

4 καὶ ᾠκοδόμησεν θυσιαστήρια ἐν οἴκῳ κυρίου οὗ εἶπεν κύριος ἐν Ιερουσαλημ ἔσται τὸ ὄνομά μου εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα

5 καὶ ᾠκοδόμησεν θυσιαστήρια πάσῃ τῇ στρατιᾷ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ ἐν ταῖς δυσὶν αὐλαῖς οἴκου κυρίου

6 καὶ αὐτὸς διήγαγεν τὰ τέκνα αὐτοῦ ἐν πυρὶ ἐν Γαι-βαναι-εννομ καὶ ἐκληδονίζετο καὶ οἰωνίζετο καὶ ἐφαρμακεύετο καὶ ἐποίησεν ἐγγαστριμύθους καὶ ἐπαοιδούς ἐπλήθυνεν τοῦ ποιῆσαι τὸ πονηρὸν ἐναντίον κυρίου τοῦ παροργίσαι αὐτόν

7 καὶ ἔθηκεν τὸ γλυπτὸν καὶ τὸ χωνευτόν εἰκόνα ἣν ἐποίησεν ἐν οἴκῳ θεοῦ οὗ εἶπεν ὁ θεὸς πρὸς Δαυιδ καὶ πρὸς Σαλωμων υἱὸν αὐτοῦ ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ τούτῳ καὶ Ιερουσαλημ ἣν ἐξελεξάμην ἐκ πασῶν φυλῶν Ισραηλ θήσω τὸ ὄνομά μου εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα

8 καὶ οὐ προσθήσω σαλεῦσαι τὸν πόδα Ισραηλ ἀπὸ τῆς γῆς ἧς ἔδωκα τοῖς πατράσιν αὐτῶν πλὴν ἐὰν φυλάσσωνται τοῦ ποιῆσαι πάντα ἃ ἐνετειλάμην αὐτοῖς κατὰ πάντα τὸν νόμον καὶ τὰ προστάγματα καὶ τὰ κρίματα ἐν χειρὶ Μωυσῆ

9 καὶ ἐπλάνησεν Μανασσης τὸν Ιουδαν καὶ τοὺς κατοικοῦντας ἐν Ιερουσαλημ τοῦ ποιῆσαι τὸ πονηρὸν ὑπὲρ πάντα τὰ ἔθνη ἃ ἐξῆρεν κύριος ἀπὸ προσώπου υἱῶν Ισραηλ

10 καὶ ἐλάλησεν κύριος ἐπὶ Μανασση καὶ ἐπὶ τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ καὶ οὐκ ἐπήκουσαν

11 καὶ ἤγαγεν κύριος ἐπ᾽ αὐτοὺς τοὺς ἄρχοντας τῆς δυνάμεως βασιλέως Ασσουρ καὶ κατέλαβον τὸν Μανασση ἐν δεσμοῖς καὶ ἔδησαν αὐτὸν ἐν πέδαις καὶ ἤγαγον εἰς Βαβυλῶνα

12 καὶ ὡς ἐθλίβη ἐζήτησεν τὸ πρόσωπον κυρίου τοῦ θεοῦ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐταπεινώθη σφόδρα ἀπὸ προσώπου θεοῦ τῶν πατέρων αὐτοῦ

13 καὶ προσηύξατο πρὸς αὐτόν καὶ ἐπήκουσεν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐπήκουσεν τῆς βοῆς αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐπέστρεψεν αὐτὸν εἰς Ιερουσαλημ ἐπὶ τὴν βασιλείαν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἔγνω Μανασσης ὅτι κύριος αὐτός ἐστιν ὁ θεός

14 καὶ μετὰ ταῦτα ᾠκοδόμησεν τεῖχος ἔξω τῆς πόλεως Δαυιδ ἀπὸ λιβὸς κατὰ Γιων ἐν τῷ χειμάρρῳ καὶ ἐκπορευομένων τὴν πύλην τὴν κυκλόθεν καὶ εἰς τὸ Οφλα καὶ ὕψωσεν σφόδρα καὶ κατέστησεν ἄρχοντας τῆς δυνάμεως ἐν πάσαις ταῖς πόλεσιν ταῖς τειχήρεσιν ἐν Ιουδα

15 καὶ περιεῖλεν τοὺς θεοὺς τοὺς ἀλλοτρίους καὶ τὸ γλυπτὸν ἐξ οἴκου κυρίου καὶ πάντα τὰ θυσιαστήρια ἃ ᾠκοδόμησεν ἐν ὄρει οἴκου κυρίου καὶ ἐν Ιερουσαλημ καὶ ἔξω τῆς πόλεως

16 καὶ κατώρθωσεν τὸ θυσιαστήριον κυρίου καὶ ἐθυσίασεν ἐπ᾽ αὐτὸ θυσίαν σωτηρίου καὶ αἰνέσεως καὶ εἶπεν τῷ Ιουδα τοῦ δουλεύειν κυρίῳ θεῷ Ισραηλ

17 πλὴν ὁ λαὸς ἔτι ἐπὶ τῶν ὑψηλῶν πλὴν κύριος ὁ θεὸς αὐτῶν

18 καὶ τὰ λοιπὰ τῶν λόγων Μανασση καὶ ἡ προσευχὴ αὐτοῦ ἡ πρὸς τὸν θεὸν καὶ λόγοι τῶν ὁρώντων λαλούντων πρὸς αὐτὸν ἐπ᾽ ὀνόματι κυρίου θεοῦ Ισραηλ ἰδοὺ ἐπὶ λόγων

19 προσευχῆς αὐτοῦ καὶ ὡς ἐπήκουσεν αὐτοῦ καὶ πᾶσαι αἱ ἁμαρτίαι αὐτοῦ καὶ αἱ ἀποστάσεις αὐτοῦ καὶ οἱ τόποι ἐφ᾽ οἷς ᾠκοδόμησεν τὰ ὑψηλὰ καὶ ἔστησεν ἐκεῖ ἄλση καὶ γλυπτὰ πρὸ τοῦ ἐπιστρέψαι ἰδοὺ γέγραπται ἐπὶ τῶν λόγων τῶν ὁρώντων

20 καὶ ἐκοιμήθη Μανασσης μετὰ τῶν πατέρων αὐτοῦ καὶ ἔθαψαν αὐτὸν ἐν παραδείσῳ οἴκου αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐβασίλευσεν ἀντ᾽ αὐτοῦ Αμων υἱὸς αὐτοῦ

21 ὢν εἴκοσι καὶ δύο ἐτῶν Αμων ἐν τῷ βασιλεύειν αὐτὸν καὶ δύο ἔτη ἐβασίλευσεν ἐν Ιερουσαλημ

22 καὶ ἐποίησεν τὸ πονηρὸν ἐνώπιον κυρίου ὡς ἐποίησεν Μανασσης ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ καὶ πᾶσιν τοῖς εἰδώλοις οἷς ἐποίησεν Μανασσης ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ ἔθυεν Αμων καὶ ἐδούλευσεν αὐτοῖς

23 καὶ οὐκ ἐταπεινώθη ἐναντίον κυρίου ὡς ἐταπεινώθη Μανασσης ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ ὅτι υἱὸς αὐτοῦ Αμων ἐπλήθυνεν πλημμέλειαν

24 καὶ ἐπέθεντο αὐτῷ οἱ παῖδες αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐπάταξαν αὐτὸν ἐν οἴκῳ αὐτοῦ

25 καὶ ἐπάταξεν ὁ λαὸς τῆς γῆς τοὺς ἐπιθεμένους ἐπὶ τὸν βασιλέα Αμων καὶ ἐβασίλευσεν ὁ λαὸς τῆς γῆς τὸν Ιωσιαν υἱὸν αὐτοῦ ἀντ᾽ αὐτοῦ

1 Duodecim annorum erat Manasses cum regnare cœpisset, et quinquaginta quinque annis regnavit in Jerusalem.

2 Fecit autem malum coram Domino, juxta abominationes gentium quas subvertit Dominus coram filiis Israël:

3 et conversus instauravit excelsa quæ demolitus fuerat Ezechias pater ejus: construxitque aras Baalim, et fecit lucos, et adoravit omnem militiam cæli, et coluit eam.

4 Ædificavit quoque altaria in domo Domini, de qua dixerat Dominus: In Jerusalem erit nomen meum in æternum.

5 Ædificavit autem ea cuncto exercitui cæli in duobus atriis domus Domini.

6 Transireque fecit filios suos per ignem in valle Benennom: observabat somnia, sectabatur auguria, maleficis artibus inserviebat, habebat secum magos et incantatores, multaque mala operatus est coram Domino ut irritaret eum.

7 Sculptile quoque et conflatile signum posuit in domo Dei, de qua locutus est Deus ad David, et ad Salomonem filium ejus, dicens: In domo hac, et in Jerusalem quam elegi de cunctis tribubus Israël, ponam nomen meum in sempiternum.

8 Et moveri non faciam pedem Israël de terra quam tradidi patribus eorum: ita dumtaxat si custodierint facere quæ præcepi eis, cunctamque legem, et cæremonias atque judicia, per manum Moysi.

9 Igitur Manasses seduxit Judam, et habitatores Jerusalem, ut facerent malum super omnes gentes quas subverterat Dominus a facie filiorum Israël.

10 Locutusque est Dominus ad eum, et ad populum illius, et attendere noluerunt.

11 Idcirco superinduxit eis principes exercitus regis Assyriorum: ceperuntque Manassen, et vinctum catenis atque compedibus duxerunt in Babylonem.

12 Qui postquam coangustatus est, oravit Dominum Deum suum: et egit pœnitentiam valde coram Deo patrum suorum.

13 Deprecatusque est eum, et obsecravit intente: et exaudivit orationem ejus, reduxitque eum Jerusalem in regnum suum, et cognovit Manasses quod Dominus ipse esset Deus.

14 Post hæc ædificavit murum extra civitatem David ad occidentem Gihon in convalle, ab introitu portæ piscium per circuitum usque ad Ophel, et exaltavit illum vehementer: constituitque principes exercitus in cunctis civitatibus Juda munitis:

15 et abstulit deos alienos, et simulacrum de domo Domini: aras quoque, quas fecerat in monte domus Domini et in Jerusalem: et projecit omnia extra urbem.

16 Porro instauravit altare Domini, et immolavit super illud victimas, et pacifica, et laudem: præcepitque Judæ ut serviret Domino Deo Israël.

17 Attamen adhuc populus immolabat in excelsis Domino Deo suo.

18 Reliqua autem gestorum Manasse, et obsecratio ejus ad Deum suum, verba quoque videntium qui loquebantur ad eum in nomine Domini Dei Israël, continentur in sermonibus regum Israël.

19 Oratio quoque ejus et exauditio, et cuncta peccata atque contemptus, loca etiam in quibus ædificavit excelsa, et fecit lucos et statuas antequam ageret pœnitentiam, scripta sunt in sermonibus Hozai.

20 Dormivit ergo Manasses cum patribus suis, et sepelierunt eum in domo sua: regnavitque pro eo filius ejus Amon.

21 Viginti duorum annorum erat Amon cum regnare cœpisset, et duobus annis regnavit in Jerusalem.

22 Fecitque malum in conspectu Domini, sicut fecerat Manasses pater ejus: et cunctis idolis quæ Manasses fuerat fabricatus, immolavit atque servivit.

23 Et non est reveritus faciem Domini, sicut reveritus est Manasses pater ejus, et multo majora deliquit.

24 Cumque conjurassent adversus eum servi sui, interfecerunt eum in domo sua.

25 Porro reliqua populi multitudo, cæsis iis qui Amon percusserant, constituit regem Josiam filium ejus pro eo.
