2 Kings 23:8-17

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>_.
