1 Manasses was twelve years old when he began to reign, and he reigned fifty-five years in Jerusalem. 2 And he did that which was evil in the sight of the Lord, according to all the abominations of the heathen, whom the Lord destroyed from before the face of the children of Israel. 3 And he returned and built the high places, which his father Ezekias had pulled down, and set up images to Baalim, and made groves, and worshipped all the host of heaven, and served them. 4 And he built altars in the house of the Lord, concerning which the Lord said, In Jerusalem shall be my name for ever. 5 And he built altars to all the host of heaven in the two courts of the house of the Lord. 6 He also passed his children through the fire in the valley of Benennom; and he divined, and used auspices, and sorceries, and appointed those who had divining spirits, and enchanters, and wrought abundant wickedness before the Lord, to provoke him. 7 And he set the graven [image], the molten [statue], the idol which he made, in the house of God, of which God had said to David and to Solomon his son, In this house, and Jerusalem, which I have chosen out of all the tribes of Israel, I will put my name for ever; 8 and I will not again remove the foot of Israel from the land which I gave to their fathers, if only they will take heed to do all things which I have commanded them, according to all the law and the ordinances and the judgments [given] by the hand of Moses. 9 So Manasses led astray Juda and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, to do evil beyond all the nations which the Lord cast out from before the children of Israel. 10 And the Lord spoke to Manasses, and to his people: but they hearkened not. 11 And the Lord brought upon them the captains of the host of the king of Assyria, and they took Manasses in bonds, and bound him in fetters, and brought him to Babylon. 12 And when he was afflicted, he sought the face of the Lord his God, and was greatly humbled before the face of the God of his fathers; 13 and he prayed to him: and he hearkened to him, and listened to his cry, and brought him back to Jerusalem to his kingdom: and Manasses knew that the Lord he is God. 14 And afterward he built a wall without the city of David, from the southwest southward in the valleys and at the entrance through the fish-gate, as men go out by the gate round about, even as far as Opel: and he raised it much, and set captains of the host in all the fortified cities in Juda. 15 And he removed the strange gods, and the graven [image] out of the house of the Lord, and all the altars which he had built in the mount of the house of the Lord, and in Jerusalem, and without the city. 16 And he repaired the altar of the Lord, and offered upon it a sacrifice of peace-offering and thank-offering, and he told Juda to serve the Lord God of Israel. 17 Nevertheless the people still sacrificed on the high places, only to the Lord their God. 18 And the rest of the acts of Manasses, and his prayer to God, and the words of the seers that spoke to him in the name of the God of Israel, 19 behold, [they are] in the account of his prayer; and [God] hearkened to him. And all his sins, and his backslidings, and the spots on which he built the high places, and set there groves and graven images, before he repented, behold, they are written in the books of the seers. 20 And Manasses slept with his fathers, and they buried him in the garden of his house: and Amon his son reigned in his stead. 21 Amon was twenty and two years old when he began to reign, and he reigned two years in Jerusalem. 22 And he did that which was evil in the sight of the Lord, as his father Manasses did: and Amon sacrificed to all the idols which his father Manasses had made, and served them. 23 And he was not humbled before the Lord as his father Manasses was humbled; for his son Amon abounded in transgression. 24 And his servants conspired against him, and slew him in his house. 25 And the people of the land slew the men who had conspired against king Amon; and the people of the land made Josias his son king in his stead. ΩΝ δεκαδύο ἐτῶν Μανασσῆς ἐν τῷ βασιλεῦσαι αὐτὸν καὶ πεντηκονταπέντε ἔτη ἐβασίλευσεν ἐν ῾Ιερουσαλήμ. 2 καὶ ἐποίησε τὸ πονηρὸν ἐναντίον Κυρίου ἀπὸ πάντων τῶν βδελυγμάτων τῶν ἐθνῶν, οὓς ἐξωλόθρευσε Κύριος ἀπὸ προσώπου τῶν υἱῶν ᾿Ισραήλ. 3 καὶ ἐπέστρεψε καὶ ᾠκοδόμησε τὰ ὑψηλά, ἃ κατέσπασεν ᾿Εζεκίας ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἔστησε στήλας τοῖς Βααλὶμ καὶ ἐποίησεν ἄλση καὶ προσεκύνησε πάσῃ τῇ στρατιᾷ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ ἐδούλευσεν αὐτοῖς. 4 καὶ ᾠκοδόμησε θυσιαστήρια ἐν οἴκῳ Κυρίου, οὗ εἶπε Κύριος· ἐν ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ ἔσται τὸ ὄνομά μου εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα. 5 καὶ ᾠκοδόμησε θυσιαστήρια πάσῃ τῇ στρατιᾷ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ ἐν ταῖς δυσὶν αὐλαῖς οἴκου Κυρίου. 6 καὶ αὐτὸς διήγαγε τὰ τέκνα αὐτοῦ ἐν πυρὶ ἐν Γεβενεννὸμ καὶ ἐκληδονίζετο καὶ οἰωνίζετο καὶ ἐφαρμακεύετο καὶ ἐποίησεν ἐγγαστριμύθους καὶ ἐπᾳοιδούς· καὶ ἐπλήθυνε τοῦ ποιῆσαι τὸ πονηρὸν ἐναντίον Κυρίου τοῦ παροργίσαι αὐτόν. 7 καὶ ἔθηκε τὸ γλυπτὸν καὶ τὸ χωνευτόν, εἰκόνα ἣν ἐποίησεν, ἐν οἴκῳ Θεοῦ, οὗ εἶπε Θεὸς πρὸς Δαυὶδ καὶ πρὸς Σαλωμὼν υἱὸν αὐτοῦ· ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ τούτῳ καὶ ῾Ιερουσαλήμ, ἣν ἐξελεξάμην ἐκ πασῶν φυλῶν ᾿Ισραήλ, θήσω τὸ ὄνομά μου εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα· 8 καὶ οὐ προσθήσω σαλεῦσαι τὸν πόδα ᾿Ισραὴλ 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 Μωϋσῆ. 9 καὶ ἐπλάνησε Μανασσῆς τὸν ᾿Ιούδαν καὶ τοὺς κατοικοῦντας ἐν ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ τοῦ ποιῆσαι τὸ πονηρὸν ὑπὲρ πάντα τὰ ἔθνη, ἃ ἐξῇρε Κύριος ἀπὸ προσώπου υἱῶν ᾿Ισραήλ. 10 καὶ ἐλάλησε Κύριος ἐπὶ Μανασσῆ καὶ ἐπὶ τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ, καὶ οὐκ ἐπήκουσαν. 11 καὶ ἤγαγε Κύριος ἐπ’ αὐτοὺς τοὺς ἄρχοντας τῆς δυνάμεως τοῦ βασιλέως ᾿Ασσούρ, καὶ κατέλαβον τὸν Μανασσῆ ἐν δεσμοῖς καὶ ἔδησαν αὐτὸν ἐν πέδαις καὶ ἤγαγον εἰς Βαβυλῶνα. 12 καὶ ὡς ἐθλίβη, ἐζήτησε τὸ πρόσωπον Θεοῦ τοῦ Κυρίου αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐταπεινώθη σφόδρα ἀπὸ προσώπου Θεοῦ πατέρων αὐτοῦ. 13 καὶ προσηύξατο πρὸς αὐτόν, καὶ ἐπήκουσεν αὐτοῦ· καὶ ἐπήκουσε τῆς βοῆς αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐπέστρεψεν αὐτὸν εἰς ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ ἐπὶ τὴν βασιλείαν αὐτοῦ· καὶ ἔγνω Μανασσῆς, ὅτι Κύριος αὐτός ἐστι Θεός. 14 καὶ μετὰ ταῦτα ᾠκοδόμησε τεῖχος ἔξω τῆς πόλεως Δαυὶδ ἀπὸ λιβὸς κατὰ Γιὼν ἐν τῷ χειμάρρῳ καὶ κατὰ τὴν εἴσοδον τὴν διὰ τῆς πύλης τῆς ἰχθυϊκῆς ἐκπορευομένων τὴν πύλην τὴν κυκλόθεν καὶ εἰς ᾿Οφλὰ καὶ ὕψωσε σφόδρα. καὶ κατέστησεν ἄρχοντας τῆς δυνάμεως ἐν πάσαις ταῖς πόλεσι ταῖς τειχήρεσιν ἐν ᾿Ιούδᾳ 15 καὶ περιεῖλε τοὺς θεοὺς τοὺς ἀλλοτρίους καὶ τὸ γλυπτὸν ἐξ οἴκου Κυρίου καὶ πάντα τὰ θυσιαστήρια, ἃ ᾠκοδόμησεν ἐν ὄρει οἴκου Κυρίου καὶ ἐν ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ καὶ ἔξωθεν τῆς πόλεως. 16 καὶ κατώρθωσε τὸ θυσιαστήριον Κυρίου καὶ ἐθυσίασεν ἐπ’ αὐτὸ θυσίαν σωτηρίου καὶ αἰνέσεως καὶ εἶπε τῷ ᾿Ιούδᾳ τοῦ δουλεύειν Κυρίῳ Θεῷ ᾿Ισραήλ· 17 πλὴν ἔτι ὁ λαὸς ἐπὶ τῶν ὑψηλῶν ἐθυσίαζε, πλὴν Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς αὐτῶν. 18 καὶ τὰ λοιπὰ τῶν λόγων Μανασσῆ καὶ ἡ προσευχὴ αὐτοῦ ἡ πρὸς τὸν Θεὸν καὶ λόγοι τῶν ὁρώντων τῶν λαλούντων πρὸς αὐτὸν ἐπ’ ὀνόματι Θεοῦ ᾿Ισραὴλ 19 ἰδοὺ ἐπὶ λόγων προσευχῆς αὐτοῦ, ὡς καὶ ἐπήκουσεν αὐτοῦ, καὶ πᾶσαι αἱ ἁμαρτίαι αὐτοῦ καὶ ἀποστάσεις αὐτοῦ καὶ οἱ τόποι, ἐφ’ οἷς ᾠκοδόμησεν ἐν αὐτοῖς τὰ ὑψηλὰ καὶ ἔστησεν ἐκεῖ ἄλση καὶ γλυπτά, πρὸ τοῦ ἐπιστρέψαι, ἰδοὺ γέγραπται ἐπὶ τῶν λόγων τῶν ὁρώντων. 20 καὶ ἐκοιμήθη Μανασσῆς μετὰ τῶν πατέρων αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἔθαψαν αὐτὸν ἐν παραδείσῳ οἴκου αὐτοῦ· καὶ ἐβασίλευσεν ἀντ’ αὐτοῦ ᾿Αμὼν υἱὸς αὐτοῦ. 21 ῍Ων ἐτῶν εἴκοσι καὶ δύο ᾿Αμὼν ἐν τῷ βασιλεύειν αὐτὸν καὶ δύο ἔτη ἐβασίλευσεν ἐν ῾Ιερουσαλήμ. 22 καὶ ἐποίησε τὸ πονηρὸν ἐνώπιον Κυρίου, ὡς ἐποίησε Μανασσῆς ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ, καὶ πᾶσι τοῖς εἰδώλοις, οἷς ἐποίησε Μανασσῆς ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ, ἔθυεν ᾿Αμὼν καὶ ἐδούλευσεν αὐτοῖς. 23 καὶ οὐκ ἐταπεινώθη ἐναντίον Κυρίου, ὡς ἐταπεινώθη Μανασσῆς ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ, ὅτι υἱὸς αὐτοῦ ᾿Αμὼν ἐπλήθυνε 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 ᾿Αμών, καὶ ἐβασίλευσεν ὁ λαὸς τῆς γῆς τὸν ᾿Ιωσίαν υἱὸν αὐτοῦ ἀντ’ αὐτοῦ.
