2 Kings 21


1  Manasseh4519 was twelve8147 6240 years8141 old1121 when he began to reign,4427 and reigned4427 fifty2572 and five2568 years8141 in Jerusalem.3389 And his mother's517 name8034 was Hephzibah.2657

2  And he did6213 that which was evil7451 in the sight5869 of the LORD,3068 after the abominations8441 of the heathen,1471 whom834 the LORD3068 cast out3423 before4480 6440 the children1121 of Israel.3478

3  For he built up1129 again7725 853 the high places1116 which834 Hezekiah2396 his father1 had destroyed;6 and he reared up6965 altars4196 for Baal,1168 and made6213 a grove,842 as834 did6213 Ahab256 king4428 of Israel;3478 and worshiped7812 all3605 the host6635 of heaven,8064 and served5647 them.

4  And he built1129 altars4196 in the house1004 of the LORD,3068 of which834 the LORD3068 said,559 In Jerusalem3389 will I put7760 853 my name.8034

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

6  And he made 853 his son1121 pass through5674 the fire,784 and observed times,6049 and used enchantments,5172 and dealt6213 with familiar spirits178 and wizards:3049 he wrought6213 much7235 wickedness7451 in the sight5869 of the LORD,3068 to provoke him to anger.3707

7  And he set7760 853 a graven image6459 of the grove842 that834 he had made6213 in the house,1004 of which834 the LORD3068 said559 to413 David,1732 and to413 Solomon8010 his son,1121 In this2088 house,1004 and in Jerusalem,3389 which834 I have chosen977 out of all4480 3605 tribes7626 of Israel,3478 will I put7760 853 my name8034 forever:5769

8  Neither3808 will I make the feet7272 of Israel3478 move5110 any more3254 out of4480 the land127 which834 I gave5414 their fathers;1 only7535 if518 they will observe8104 to do6213 according to all3605 that834 I have commanded6680 them, and according to all3605 the law8451 that834 my servant5650 Moses4872 commanded6680 them.

9  But they hearkened8085 not:3808 and Manasseh4519 seduced8582 them to do6213 853 more evil7451 than4480 did the nations1471 whom834 the LORD3068 destroyed8045 before4480 6440 the children1121 of Israel.3478

10  And the LORD3068 spoke1696 by3027 his servants5650 the prophets,5030 saying,559

11  Because3282 834 Manasseh4519 king4428 of Judah3063 hath done6213 these428 abominations,8441 and hath done wickedly7489 above all4480 3605 that834 the Amorites567 did,6213 which834 were before6440 him, and hath made 853 Judah3063 also1571 to sin2398 with his idols:1544

12  Therefore3651 thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 God430 of Israel,3478 Behold,2009 I am bringing935 such evil7451 upon5921 Jerusalem3389 and Judah,3063 that834 whosoever3605 heareth8085 of it, both8147 his ears241 shall tingle.6750

13  And I will stretch5186 over5921 Jerusalem3389 853 the line6957 of Samaria,8111 and the plummet4949 of the house1004 of Ahab:256 and I will wipe4229 853 Jerusalem3389 as834 a man wipeth4229 853 a dish,6747 wiping4229 it, and turning2015 it upside down.5921 6440

14  And I will forsake5203 853 the remnant7611 of mine inheritance,5159 and deliver5414 them into the hand3027 of their enemies;341 and they shall become1961 a prey957 and a spoil4933 to all3605 their enemies;341

15  Because3282 834 they have done6213 that which was 853 evil7451 in my sight,5869 and have1961 provoked me to anger,3707 853 since4480 the day3117 their fathers1 came forth3318 out of Egypt,4480 4714 even unto5704 this2088 day.3117

16  Moreover1571 Manasseh4519 shed8210 innocent5355 blood1818 very3966 much,7235 till5704 834 he had filled4390 853 Jerusalem3389 from one end6310 to another;6310 beside his sin905 4480 2403 wherewith834 he made Judah to sin,2398 853 3063 in doing6213 that which was evil7451 in the sight5869 of the LORD.3068

17  Now the rest3499 of the acts1697 of Manasseh,4519 and all3605 that834 he did,6213 and his sin2403 that834 he sinned,2398 are they1992 not3808 written3789 in5921 the book5612 of the chronicles1697 3117 of the kings4428 of Judah?3063

18  And Manasseh4519 slept7901 with5973 his fathers,1 and was buried6912 in the garden1588 of his own house,1004 in the garden1588 of Uzza:5798 and Amon526 his son1121 reigned4427 in his stead.8478

19  Amon526 was twenty6242 and two8147 years8141 old1121 when he began to reign,4427 and he reigned4427 two8147 years8141 in Jerusalem.3389 And his mother's517 name8034 was Meshullemeth,4922 the daughter1323 of Haruz2743 of4480 Jotbah.3192

20  And he did6213 that which was evil7451 in the sight5869 of the LORD,3068 as834 his father1 Manasseh4519 did.6213

21  And he walked1980 in all3605 the way1870 that834 his father1 walked in,1980 and served5647 853 the idols1544 that834 his father1 served,5647 and worshiped7812 them:

22  And he forsook5800 853 the LORD3068 God430 of his fathers,1 and walked1980 not3808 in the way1870 of the LORD.3068

23  And the servants5650 of Amon526 conspired7194 against5921 him, and slew4191 853 the king4428 in his own house.1004

24  And the people5971 of the land776 slew5221 853 all3605 them that had conspired7194 against5921 king4428 Amon;526 and the people5971 of the land776 made 853 Josiah2977 his son1121 king4427 in his stead.8478

25  Now the rest3499 of the acts1697 of Amon526 which834 he did,6213 are they1992 not3808 written3789 in5921 the book5612 of the chronicles1697 3117 of the kings4428 of Judah?3063

26  And he was buried6912 in his sepulcher6900 in the garden1588 of Uzza:5798 and Josiah2977 his son1121 reigned4427 in his stead.8478


1 υἱὸς δώδεκα ἐτῶν Μανασσης ἐν τῷ βασιλεύειν αὐτὸν καὶ πεντήκοντα καὶ πέντε ἔτη ἐβασίλευσεν ἐν Ιερουσαλημ καὶ ὄνομα τῇ μητρὶ αὐτοῦ Οψιβα

2 καὶ ἐποίησεν τὸ πονηρὸν ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς κυρίου κατὰ τὰ βδελύγματα τῶν ἐθνῶν ὧν ἐξῆρεν κύριος ἀπὸ προσώπου τῶν υἱῶν Ισραηλ

3 καὶ ἐπέστρεψεν καὶ ᾠκοδόμησεν τὰ ὑψηλά ἃ κατέσπασεν Εζεκιας ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἀνέστησεν θυσιαστήριον τῇ Βααλ καὶ ἐποίησεν ἄλση καθὼς ἐποίησεν Αχααβ βασιλεὺς Ισραηλ καὶ προσεκύνησεν πάσῃ τῇ δυνάμει τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ ἐδούλευσεν αὐτοῖς

4 καὶ ᾠκοδόμησεν θυσιαστήριον ἐν οἴκῳ κυρίου ὡς εἶπεν ἐν Ιερουσαλημ θήσω τὸ ὄνομά μου

5 καὶ ᾠκοδόμησεν θυσιαστήριον πάσῃ τῇ δυνάμει τοῦ οὐρανοῦ ἐν ταῖς δυσὶν αὐλαῖς οἴκου κυρίου

6 καὶ διῆγεν τοὺς υἱοὺς αὐτοῦ ἐν πυρὶ καὶ ἐκληδονίζετο καὶ οἰωνίζετο καὶ ἐποίησεν θελητὴν καὶ γνώστας ἐπλήθυνεν τοῦ ποιεῖν τὸ πονηρὸν ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς κυρίου παροργίσαι αὐτόν

7 καὶ ἔθηκεν τὸ γλυπτὸν τοῦ ἄλσους ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ ᾧ εἶπεν κύριος πρὸς Δαυιδ καὶ πρὸς Σαλωμων τὸν υἱὸν αὐτοῦ ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ τούτῳ καὶ ἐν Ιερουσαλημ ᾗ ἐξελεξάμην ἐκ πασῶν φυλῶν Ισραηλ καὶ θήσω τὸ ὄνομά μου ἐκεῖ εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα

8 καὶ οὐ προσθήσω τοῦ σαλεῦσαι τὸν πόδα Ισραηλ ἀπὸ τῆς γῆς ἧς ἔδωκα τοῖς πατράσιν αὐτῶν οἵτινες φυλάξουσιν πάντα ὅσα ἐνετειλάμην κατὰ πᾶσαν τὴν ἐντολήν ἣν ἐνετείλατο αὐτοῖς ὁ δοῦλός μου Μωυσῆς

9 καὶ οὐκ ἤκουσαν καὶ ἐπλάνησεν αὐτοὺς Μανασσης τοῦ ποιῆσαι τὸ πονηρὸν ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς κυρίου ὑπὲρ τὰ ἔθνη ἃ ἠφάνισεν κύριος ἐκ προσώπου υἱῶν Ισραηλ

10 καὶ ἐλάλησεν κύριος ἐν χειρὶ δούλων αὐτοῦ τῶν προφητῶν λέγων

11 ἀνθ᾽ ὧν ὅσα ἐποίησεν Μανασσης ὁ βασιλεὺς Ιουδα τὰ βδελύγματα ταῦτα τὰ πονηρὰ ἀπὸ πάντων ὧν ἐποίησεν ὁ Αμορραῖος ὁ ἔμπροσθεν καὶ ἐξήμαρτεν καί γε Ιουδα ἐν τοῖς εἰδώλοις αὐτῶν

12 οὐχ οὕτως τάδε λέγει κύριος ὁ θεὸς Ισραηλ ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ φέρω κακὰ ἐπὶ Ιερουσαλημ καὶ ἐπὶ Ιουδα ὥστε παντὸς ἀκούοντος ἠχήσει ἀμφότερα τὰ ὦτα αὐτοῦ

13 καὶ ἐκτενῶ ἐπὶ Ιερουσαλημ τὸ μέτρον Σαμαρείας καὶ τὸ στάθμιον οἴκου Αχααβ καὶ ἀπαλείψω τὴν Ιερουσαλημ καθὼς ἀπαλείφεται ὁ ἀλάβαστρος ἀπαλειφόμενος καὶ καταστρέφεται ἐπὶ πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ

14 καὶ ἀπώσομαι τὸ ὑπόλειμμα τῆς κληρονομίας μου καὶ παραδώσω αὐτοὺς εἰς χεῖρας ἐχθρῶν αὐτῶν καὶ ἔσονται εἰς διαρπαγὴν καὶ εἰς προνομὴν πᾶσιν τοῖς ἐχθροῖς αὐτῶν

15 ἀνθ᾽ ὧν ὅσα ἐποίησαν τὸ πονηρὸν ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς μου καὶ ἦσαν παροργίζοντές με ἀπὸ τῆς ἡμέρας ἧς ἐξήγαγον τοὺς πατέρας αὐτῶν ἐξ Αἰγύπτου καὶ ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης

16 καί γε αἷμα ἀθῷον ἐξέχεεν Μανασσης πολὺ σφόδρα ἕως οὗ ἔπλησεν τὴν Ιερουσαλημ στόμα εἰς στόμα πλὴν τῶν ἁμαρτιῶν αὐτοῦ ὧν ἐξήμαρτεν τὸν Ιουδαν τοῦ ποιῆσαι τὸ πονηρὸν ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς κυρίου

17 καὶ τὰ λοιπὰ τῶν λόγων Μανασση καὶ πάντα ὅσα ἐποίησεν καὶ ἡ ἁμαρτία αὐτοῦ ἣν ἥμαρτεν οὐχὶ ταῦτα γεγραμμένα ἐπὶ βιβλίῳ λόγων τῶν ἡμερῶν τοῖς βασιλεῦσιν Ιουδα

18 καὶ ἐκοιμήθη Μανασσης μετὰ τῶν πατέρων αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐτάφη ἐν τῷ κήπῳ τοῦ οἴκου αὐτοῦ ἐν κήπῳ Οζα καὶ ἐβασίλευσεν Αμων υἱὸς αὐτοῦ ἀντ᾽ αὐτοῦ

19 υἱὸς εἴκοσι καὶ δύο ἐτῶν Αμων ἐν τῷ βασιλεύειν αὐτὸν καὶ δύο ἔτη ἐβασίλευσεν ἐν Ιερουσαλημ καὶ ὄνομα τῇ μητρὶ αὐτοῦ Μεσολλαμ θυγάτηρ Αρους ἐξ Ιετεβα

20 καὶ ἐποίησεν τὸ πονηρὸν ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς κυρίου καθὼς ἐποίησεν Μανασσης ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ

21 καὶ ἐπορεύθη ἐν πάσῃ ὁδῷ ᾗ ἐπορεύθη ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐλάτρευσεν τοῖς εἰδώλοις οἷς ἐλάτρευσεν ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ καὶ προσεκύνησεν αὐτοῖς

22 καὶ ἐγκατέλιπεν τὸν κύριον θεὸν τῶν πατέρων αὐτοῦ καὶ οὐκ ἐπορεύθη ἐν ὁδῷ κυρίου

23 καὶ συνεστράφησαν οἱ παῖδες Αμων πρὸς αὐτὸν καὶ ἐθανάτωσαν τὸν βασιλέα ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ αὐτοῦ

24 καὶ ἐπάταξεν πᾶς ὁ λαὸς τῆς γῆς πάντας τοὺς συστραφέντας ἐπὶ τὸν βασιλέα Αμων καὶ ἐβασίλευσεν ὁ λαὸς τῆς γῆς τὸν Ιωσιαν υἱὸν αὐτοῦ ἀντ᾽ αὐτοῦ

25 καὶ τὰ λοιπὰ τῶν λόγων Αμων ὅσα ἐποίησεν οὐκ ἰδοὺ ταῦτα γεγραμμένα ἐπὶ βιβλίῳ λόγων τῶν ἡμερῶν τοῖς βασιλεῦσιν Ιουδα

26 καὶ ἔθαψαν αὐτὸν ἐν τῷ τάφῳ αὐτοῦ ἐν τῷ κήπῳ Οζα καὶ ἐβασίλευσεν Ιωσιας υἱὸς αὐτοῦ ἀντ᾽ αὐτοῦ

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.
