2 Kings 16:3

Context
16:3 He followed in the footsteps of 1  the kings of Israel. He passed his son through the fire, 2  a horrible sin practiced by the nations 3  whom the Lord drove out from before the Israelites.

1 tn Heb “he walked in the way of.”

2 sn This may refer to child sacrifice, though some interpret it as a less drastic cultic practice. For discussion see M. Cogan and H. Tadmor, II Kings (AB), 266-67.

3 tn Heb “like the abominable practices of the nations.”
