2 Chronicles 33
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1Manasheh was a son of twelve years when he arose into the kingdom, and fifty and five years he reigned in Jerusalem. 2And he did what is evil before LORD JEHOVAH, according to the deeds of the Gentiles whom LORD JEHOVAH uprooted from before the sons of Israel. 3And he turned and built the altars which Hezekiah his father had pulled down, and he erected high places for idols, and made leopards and he bowed to them, and he worshiped all the hosts of Heaven in the two courts of the house of LORD JEHOVAH. 6Also he put his son into the fire in the great valley, and he took eyeballs and he divined divination and he worked enchantments, and he inquired of the Chaldeans and of familiar spirits, and he increasingly did evil before LORD JEHOVAH and was provoking anger before him. 7And he placed the image of four faces that he made in the house of LORD JEHOVAH, of which LORD JEHOVAH said to David and to Solomon his son: “In this house in Jerusalem which I have chosen for myself of all the tribes of Israel I shall command my Shechinah Presence to encamp for eternity. 8And I shall not again cast out Israel from this land that I have given to their fathers, only if they will be careful to do everything that I have commanded them and all the Law and its statutes and its judgments which my Servant Moshe commanded them.” 9Manasheh seduced Yehuda and the inhabitants of Jerusalem to do evil works, like the nations which LORD JEHOVAH destroyed from before the sons of Israel.

10And LORD JEHOVAH spoke with Manasheh and with his people and they did not receive it. 11And LORD JEHOVAH brought upon them the Commanders of the army of the King of Assyria, and they seized Menasheh alive, and they bound him in chains and brought him to Babel. 12And when it was grievous to him, he prayed before LORD JEHOVAH his God, and he was very afraid before LORD JEHOVAH God of his fathers. 13And he prayed before LORD JEHOVAH, and he listened to his voice and he accepted his prayer, and returned him to Jerusalem, to his kingdom, and Manasheh knew that LORD JEHOVAH is God.

14And after these things he built a wall outside of the city of David, from the West of Gikhon the river to the entrance of the Fishing Gate, and the wall went around all Jerusalem outside, and he raised it greatly, and he appointed Commanders of the army in all the high towns of the house of Yehuda. 15And he took away foreign gods and the carved images that were in the house of LORD JEHOVAH, and all the high places that he had built in the Mount of the house of LORD JEHOVAH and in Jerusalem, and he cast them outside of the city. 16And he built an altar to LORD JEHOVAH, and he offered burning offerings and peace sacrifices and thank offerings, and he said to Yehuda to make the feast to LORD JEHOVAH, God of Israel, again. 17“And you shall not offer up other sacrifices on high places, but only before LORD JEHOVAH your God.”

18And the rest of the accounts of Menasheh and his prayer that was before his God, and the words of the Prophets which were prophesied over him in the name of LORD JEHOVAH God of Israel, behold, those are written in the accounts of the Kings of Israel and of Yehuda. 19And his prayer, and when his voice was heard, and all his sins, and his evil, and the places where he built the altars and appointed Priests and made shrines for idols, behold, those are written in the accounts of Khanan the Prophet. 20And Manasheh fell asleep with his fathers, and they buried him in his house in the garden of the treasury, and Amon his son became king after him.

21Amon was a son of twenty and two years when he arose into the kingdom, and he reigned two years in Jerusalem. 22And he did evil before LORD JEHOVAH, just like what Manasheh his father did, and Amon sacrificed and he bowed to all the images and the idols that Manasheh his father had made. 23And he did not tremble from before LORD JEHOVAH his God, because Manasheh had trembled before LORD JEHOVAH his God, because Amon was sinning greatly. 24And his Servants acted treacherously against him and killed him in his house. 25And the people of the land killed everyone whoever was treacherous against King Amon, and the people of the land made Yoshiah his son king after him.
