2 Kings 23

And the king
<04428>
sent
<07971> (8799)_,
and they gathered
<0622> (8799)
unto him all the elders
<02205>
of Judah
<03063>
and of Jerusalem
<03389>_.
And the king
<04428>
went up
<05927> (8799)
into the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
and all the men
<0376>
of Judah
<03063>
and all the inhabitants
<03427> (8802)
of Jerusalem
<03389>
with him, and the priests
<03548>_,
and the prophets
<05030>_,
and all the people
<05971>_,
both small
<06996>
and great
<01419>_:
and he read
<07121> (8799)
in their ears
<0241>
all the words
<01697>
of the book
<05612>
of the covenant
<01285>
which was found
<04672> (8737)
in the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_.
{both...: Heb. from small even unto great}
And the king
<04428>
stood
<05975> (8799)
by a pillar
<05982>_,
and made
<03772> (8799)
a covenant
<01285>
before
<06440>
the LORD
<03068>_,
to walk
<03212> (8800)
after
<0310>
the LORD
<03068>_,
and to keep
<08104> (8800)
his commandments
<04687>
and his testimonies
<05715>
and his statutes
<02708>
with all [their] heart
<03820>
and all [their] soul
<05315>_,
to perform
<06965> (8687)
the words
<01697>
of this covenant
<01285>
that were written
<03789> (8803)
in this book
<05612>_.
And all the people
<05971>
stood
<05975> (8799)
to the covenant
<01285>_.
And the king
<04428>
commanded
<06680> (8762)
Hilkiah
<02518>
the high
<01419>
priest
<03548>_,
and the priests
<03548>
of the second order
<04932>_,
and the keepers
<08104> (8802)
of the door
<05592>_,
to bring forth
<03318> (8687)
out of the temple
<01964>
of the LORD
<03068>
all the vessels
<03627>
that were made
<06213> (8803)
for Baal
<01168>_,
and for the grove
<0842>_,
and for all the host
<06635>
of heaven
<08064>_:
and he burned
<08313> (8799)
them without
<02351>
Jerusalem
<03389>
in the fields
<07709>
of Kidron
<06939>_,
and carried
<05375> (8804)
the ashes
<06083>
of them unto Bethel
<01008>_.
And he put down
<07673> (8689)
the idolatrous priests
<03649>_,
whom the kings
<04428>
of Judah
<03063>
had ordained
<05414> (8804)
to burn incense
<06999> (8762)
in the high places
<01116>
in the cities
<05892>
of Judah
<03063>_,
and in the places round about
<04524>
Jerusalem
<03389>_;
them also that burned incense
<06999> (8764)
unto Baal
<01168>_,
to the sun
<08121>_,
and to the moon
<03394>_,
and to the planets
<04208>_,
and to all the host
<06635>
of heaven
<08064>_.
{put...: Heb. caused to cease} {idolatrous...: Heb. Chemarim} {planets: or, twelve signs or, constellations}
And he brought out
<03318> (8686)
the grove
<0842>
from the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
without
<02351>
Jerusalem
<03389>_,
unto the brook
<05158>
Kidron
<06939>_,
and burned
<08313> (8799)
it at the brook
<05158>
Kidron
<06939>_,
and stamped [it] small
<01854> (8686)
to powder
<06083>_,
and cast
<07993> (8686)
the powder
<06083>
thereof upon the graves
<06913>
of the children
<01121>
of the people
<05971>_.
And he brake down
<05422> (8799)
the houses
<01004>
of the sodomites
<06945>_,
that [were] by the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
where the women
<0802>
wove
<0707> (8802)
hangings
<01004>
for the grove
<0842>_.
{hangings: Heb. houses}
And he brought
<0935> (8686)
all the priests
<03548>
out of the cities
<05892>
of Judah
<03063>_,
and defiled
<02930> (8762)
the high places
<01116>
where the priests
<03548>
had burned incense
<06999> (8765)_,
from Geba
<01387>
to Beersheba
<0884>_,
and brake down
<05422> (8804)
the high places
<01116>
of the gates
<08179>
that [were] in the entering in
<06607>
of the gate
<08179>
of Joshua
<03091>
the governor
<08269>
of the city
<05892>_,
which [were] on a man's
<0376>
left hand
<08040>
at the gate
<08179>
of the city
<05892>_.
Nevertheless the priests
<03548>
of the high places
<01116>
came not up
<05927> (8799)
to the altar
<04196>
of the LORD
<03068>
in Jerusalem
<03389>_,
but they did eat
<0398> (8804)
of the unleavened bread
<04682>
among
<08432>
their brethren
<0251>_.
And he defiled
<02930> (8765)
Topheth
<08612>_,
which [is] in the valley
<01516>
of the children
<01121> (8675) <01121>
of Hinnom
<02011>_,
that no man
<0376>
might make his son
<01121>
or his daughter
<01323>
to pass through
<05674> (8687)
the fire
<0784>
to Molech
<04432>_.
And he took away
<07673> (8686)
the horses
<05483>
that the kings
<04428>
of Judah
<03063>
had given
<05414> (8804)
to the sun
<08121>_,
at the entering in
<0935> (8800)
of the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
by the chamber
<03957>
of Nathanmelech
<05419>
the chamberlain
<05631>_,
which [was] in the suburbs
<06503>_,
and burned
<08313> (8804)
the chariots
<04818>
of the sun
<08121>
with fire
<0784>_.
{chamberlain: or, eunuch, or, officer}
And the altars
<04196>
that [were] on the top
<01406>
of the upper chamber
<05944>
of Ahaz
<0271>_,
which the kings
<04428>
of Judah
<03063>
had made
<06213> (8804)_,
and the altars
<04196>
which Manasseh
<04519>
had made
<06213> (8804)
in the two
<08147>
courts
<02691>
of the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
did the king
<04428>
beat down
<05422> (8804)_,
and brake [them] down
<07323> (8799)
from thence, and cast
<07993> (8689)
the dust
<06083>
of them into the brook
<05158>
Kidron
<06939>_.
{brake...: or, ran from thence}
And the high places
<01116>
that [were] before
<06440>
Jerusalem
<03389>_,
which [were] on the right hand
<03225>
of the mount
<02022>
of corruption
<04889>_,
which Solomon
<08010>
the king
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>
had builded
<01129> (8804)
for Ashtoreth
<06253>
the abomination
<08251>
of the Zidonians
<06722>_,
and for Chemosh
<03645>
the abomination
<08251>
of the Moabites
<04124>_,
and for Milcom
<04445>
the abomination
<08441>
of the children
<01121>
of Ammon
<05983>_,
did the king
<04428>
defile
<02930> (8765)_.
{the mount...: that is, the mount of Olives}
And he brake in pieces
<07665> (8765)
the images
<04676>_,
and cut down
<03772> (8799)
the groves
<0842>_,
and filled
<04390> (8762)
their places
<04725>
with the bones
<06106>
of men
<0120>_.
{images: Heb. statues}
Moreover the altar
<04196>
that [was] at Bethel
<01008>_,
[and] the high place
<01116>
which Jeroboam
<03379>
the son
<01121>
of Nebat
<05028>_,
who made Israel
<03478>
to sin
<02398> (8689)_,
had made
<06213> (8804)_,
both that altar
<04196>
and the high place
<01116>
he brake down
<05422> (8804)_,
and burned
<08313> (8799)
the high place
<01116>_,
[and] stamped
<01854> (8689)
[it] small to powder
<06083>_,
and burned
<08313> (8804)
the grove
<0842>_.
And as Josiah
<02977>
turned
<06437> (8799)
himself, he spied
<07200> (8799)
the sepulchres
<06913>
that [were] there in the mount
<02022>_,
and sent
<07971> (8799)_,
and took
<03947> (8799)
the bones
<06106>
out of the sepulchres
<06913>_,
and burned
<08313> (8799)
[them] upon the altar
<04196>_,
and polluted
<02930> (8762)
it, according to the word
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>
which the man
<0376>
of God
<0430>
proclaimed
<07121> (8804)_,
who proclaimed
<07121> (8804)
these words
<01697>_.
Then he said
<0559> (8799)_,
What title
<06725>
[is] that
<01975>
that I see
<07200> (8802)_?
And the men
<0582>
of the city
<05892>
told
<0559> (8799)
him, [It is] the sepulchre
<06913>
of the man
<0376>
of God
<0430>_,
which came
<0935> (8804)
from Judah
<03063>_,
and proclaimed
<07121> (8799)
these things
<01697>
that thou hast done
<06213> (8804)
against the altar
<04196>
of Bethel
<01008>_.
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Let him alone
<03240> (8685)_;
let no man
<0376>
move
<05128> (8686)
his bones
<06106>_.
So they let his bones
<06106>
alone
<04422> (8762)_,
with the bones
<06106>
of the prophet
<05030>
that came out
<0935> (8804)
of Samaria
<08111>_.
{bones alone: Heb. bones to escape}
And all the houses
<01004>
also of the high places
<01116>
that [were] in the cities
<05892>
of Samaria
<08111>_,
which the kings
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>
had made
<06213> (8804)
to provoke [the LORD] to anger
<03707> (8687)_,
Josiah
<02977>
took away
<05493> (8689)_,
and did
<06213> (8799)
to them according to all the acts
<04639>
that he had done
<06213> (8804)
in Bethel
<01008>_.
And he slew
<02076> (8799)
all the priests
<03548>
of the high places
<01116>
that [were] there upon the altars
<04196>_,
and burned
<08313> (8799)
men's
<0120>
bones
<06106>
upon them, and returned
<07725> (8799)
to Jerusalem
<03389>_.
{slew: or, sacrificed}
And the king
<04428>
commanded
<06680> (8762)
all the people
<05971>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Keep
<06213> (8798)
the passover
<06453>
unto the LORD
<03068>
your God
<0430>_,
as [it is] written
<03789> (8803)
in the book
<05612>
of this covenant
<01285>_.
Surely there was not holden
<06213> (8738)
such a passover
<06453>
from the days
<03117>
of the judges
<08199> (8802)
that judged
<08199> (8804)
Israel
<03478>_,
nor in all the days
<03117>
of the kings
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>_,
nor of the kings
<04428>
of Judah
<03063>_;
But in the eighteenth
<08083> <06240>
year
<08141>
of king
<04428>
Josiah
<02977>_,
[wherein] this passover
<06453>
was holden
<06213> (8738)
to the LORD
<03068>
in Jerusalem
<03389>_.
Moreover the [workers with] familiar spirits
<0178>_,
and the wizards
<03049>_,
and the images
<08655>_,
and the idols
<01544>_,
and all the abominations
<08251>
that were spied
<07200> (8738)
in the land
<0776>
of Judah
<03063>
and in Jerusalem
<03389>_,
did Josiah
<02977>
put away
<01197> (8765)_,
that he might perform
<06965> (8687)
the words
<01697>
of the law
<08451>
which were written
<03789> (8803)
in the book
<05612>
that Hilkiah
<02518>
the priest
<03548>
found
<04672> (8804)
in the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_.
{images: or, teraphim}
And like unto him was there no king
<04428>
before
<06440>
him, that turned
<07725> (8804)
to the LORD
<03068>
with all his heart
<03824>_,
and with all his soul
<05315>_,
and with all his might
<03966>_,
according to all the law
<08451>
of Moses
<04872>_;
neither after
<0310>
him arose
<06965> (8804)
there [any] like him.
Notwithstanding the LORD
<03068>
turned
<07725> (8804)
not from the fierceness
<02740>
of his great
<01419>
wrath
<0639>_,
wherewith his anger
<0639>
was kindled
<02734> (8804)
against Judah
<03063>_,
because of all the provocations
<03708>
that Manasseh
<04519>
had provoked
<03707> (8689)
him withal. {provocations: Heb. angers}
And the LORD
<03068>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
I will remove
<05493> (8686)
Judah
<03063>
also out of my sight
<06440>_,
as I have removed
<05493> (8689)
Israel
<03478>_,
and will cast off
<03988> (8804)
this city
<05892>
Jerusalem
<03389>
which I have chosen
<0977> (8804)_,
and the house
<01004>
of which I said
<0559> (8804)_,
My name
<08034>
shall be there.
Now the rest
<03499>
of the acts
<01697>
of Josiah
<02977>_,
and all that he did
<06213> (8804)_,
[are] they not written
<03789> (8803)
in the book
<05612>
of the chronicles
<01697> <03117>
of the kings
<04428>
of Judah
<03063>_?
In his days
<03117>
Pharaohnechoh
<06549>
king
<04428>
of Egypt
<04714>
went up
<05927> (8804)
against the king
<04428>
of Assyria
<0804>
to the river
<05104>
Euphrates
<06578>_:
and king
<04428>
Josiah
<02977>
went
<03212> (8799)
against
<07125> (8800)
him; and he slew
<04191> (8686)
him at Megiddo
<04023>_,
when he had seen
<07200> (8800)
him.
And his servants
<05650>
carried him in a chariot
<07392> (8686)
dead
<04191> (8801)
from Megiddo
<04023>_,
and brought
<0935> (8686)
him to Jerusalem
<03389>_,
and buried
<06912> (8799)
him in his own sepulchre
<06900>_.
And the people
<05971>
of the land
<0776>
took
<03947> (8799)
Jehoahaz
<03059>
the son
<01121>
of Josiah
<02977>_,
and anointed
<04886> (8799)
him, and made him king
<04427> (8686)
in his father's
<01>
stead.
Jehoahaz
<03059>
[was] twenty
<06242>
and three
<07969>
years
<08141>
old
<01121>
when he began to reign
<04427> (8800)_;
and he reigned
<04427> (8804)
three
<07969>
months
<02320>
in Jerusalem
<03389>_.
And his mother's
<0517>
name
<08034>
[was] Hamutal
<02537>_,
the daughter
<01323>
of Jeremiah
<03414>
of Libnah
<03841>_.
{Jehoahaz: also called, Shallum}
And he did
<06213> (8799)
[that which was] evil
<07451>
in the sight
<05869>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
according to all that his fathers
<01>
had done
<06213> (8804)_.
And Pharaohnechoh
<06549>
put him in bands
<0631> (8799)
at Riblah
<07247>
in the land
<0776>
of Hamath
<02574>_,
that he might not reign
<04427> (8800)
in Jerusalem
<03389>_;
and put
<05414> (8799)
the land
<0776>
to a tribute
<06066>
of an hundred
<03967>
talents
<03603>
of silver
<03701>_,
and a talent
<03603>
of gold
<02091>_.
{that...: or, because he reigned} {put the...: Heb. set a fine upon the land}
And Pharaohnechoh
<06549>
made Eliakim
<0471>
the son
<01121>
of Josiah
<02977>
king
<04427> (8686)
in the room of Josiah
<02977>
his father
<01>_,
and turned
<05437> (8686)
his name
<08034>
to Jehoiakim
<03079>_,
and took
<03947> (0)
Jehoahaz
<03059>
away
