the chiefest of the sepulchres of the sons of David: and all Judah and
the inhabitants of Jerusalem did him honour at his death. And Manasseh
his son reigned in his stead.
CH2 33:1 Manasseh was twelve years old when he began to reign, and he
reigned fifty and five years in Jerusalem:
CH2 33:2 But did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD, like
unto the abominations of the heathen, whom the LORD had cast out before
the children of Israel.
CH2 33:3 For he built again the high places which Hezekiah his father
had broken down, and he reared up altars for Baalim, and made groves,
and worshipped all the host of heaven, and served them.
