Chapter 23

  1. 1. And the king
    H4428
    sent,
    H7971
    and they gathered
    H622
    unto him all the elders
    H2205
    of Judah
    H3063
    and of Jerusalem.
    H3389
  2. 2. And the king
    H4428
    went up
    H5927
    into the house
    H1004
    of the LORD,
    H3068
    and all the men
    H376
    of Judah
    H3063
    and all the inhabitants
    H3427
    of Jerusalem
    H3389
    with him, and the priests,
    H3548
    and the prophets,
    H5030
    and all the people,
    H5971
    both small
    H6996
    and great:
    H1419
    and he read
    H7121
    in their ears
    H241
    all the words
    H1697
    of the book
    H5612
    of the covenant
    H1285
    which was found
    H4672
    in the house
    H1004
    of the LORD.
    H3068
  3. 3. And the king
    H4428
    stood
    H5975
    by a pillar,
    H5982
    and made
    H3772
    a covenant
    H1285
    before
    H6440
    the LORD,
    H3068
    to walk
    H3212
    after
    H310
    the LORD,
    H3068
    and to keep
    H8104
    his commandments
    H4687
    and his testimonies
    H5715
    and his statutes
    H2708
    with all their heart
    H3820
    and all their soul,
    H5315
    to perform
    H6965
    the words
    H1697
    of this covenant
    H1285
    that were written
    H3789
    in this book.
    H5612
    And all the people
    H5971
    stood
    H5975
    to the covenant.
    H1285
  4. 4. And the king
    H4428
    commanded
    H6680
    Hilkiah
    H2518
    the high
    H1419
    priest,
    H3548
    and the priests
    H3548
    of the second order,
    H4932
    and the keepers
    H8104
    of the door,
    H5592
    to bring forth
    H3318
    out of the temple
    H1964
    of the LORD
    H3068
    all the vessels
    H3627
    that were made
    H6213
    for Baal,
    H1168
    and for the grove,
    H842
    and for all the host
    H6635
    of heaven:
    H8064
    and he burned
    H8313
    them without
    H2351
    Jerusalem
    H3389
    in the fields
    H7709
    of Kidron,
    H6939
    and carried
    H5375
    the ashes
    H6083
    of them unto Bethel.
    H1008
  5. 5. And he put down
    H7673
    the idolatrous priests,
    H3649
    whom the kings
    H4428
    of Judah
    H3063
    had ordained
    H5414
    to burn incense
    H6999
    in the high places
    H1116
    in the cities
    H5892
    of Judah,
    H3063
    and in the places round about
    H4524
    Jerusalem;
    H3389
    them also that burned incense
    H6999
    unto Baal,
    H1168
    to the sun,
    H8121
    and to the moon,
    H3394
    and to the planets,
    H4208
    and to all the host
    H6635
    of heaven.
    H8064
  6. 6. And he brought out
    H3318
    the grove
    H842
    from the house
    H1004
    of the LORD,
    H3068
    without
    H2351
    Jerusalem,
    H3389
    unto the brook
    H5158
    Kidron,
    H6939
    and burned
    H8313
    it at the brook
    H5158
    Kidron,
    H6939
    and stamped it small
    H1854
    to powder,
    H6083
    and cast
    H7993
    the powder
    H6083
    thereof upon the graves
    H6913
    of the children
    H1121
    of the people.
    H5971
  7. 7. And he brake down
    H5422
    the houses
    H1004
    of the sodomites,
    H6945
    that were by the house
    H1004
    of the LORD,
    H3068
    where the women
    H802
    wove
    H707
    hangings
    H1004
    for the grove.
    H842
  8. 8. And he brought
    H935
    all the priests
    H3548
    out of the cities
    H5892
    of Judah,
    H3063
    and defiled
    H2930
    the high places
    H1116
    where the priests
    H3548
    had burned incense,
    H6999
    from Geba
    H1387
    to Beersheba,
    H884
    and brake down
    H5422
    the high places
    H1116
    of the gates
    H8179
    that were in the entering in
    H6607
    of the gate
    H8179
    of Joshua
    H3091
    the governor
    H8269
    of the city,
    H5892
    which were on a man's
    H376
    left hand
    H8040
    at the gate
    H8179
    of the city.
    H5892
  9. 9. Nevertheless the priests
    H3548
    of the high places
    H1116
    came not up
    H5927
    to the altar
    H4196
    of the LORD
    H3068
    in Jerusalem,
    H3389
    but they did eat
    H398
    of the unleavened bread
    H4682
    among
    H8432
    their brethren.
    H251
  10. 10. And he defiled
    H2930
    Topheth,
    H8612
    which is in the valley
    H1516
    of the children
    H1121
    H1121
    of Hinnom,
    H2011
    that no man
    H376
    might make his son
    H1121
    or his daughter
    H1323
    to pass through
    H5674
    the fire
    H784
    to Molech.
    H4432
  11. 11. And he took away
    H7673
    the horses
    H5483
    that the kings
    H4428
    of Judah
    H3063
    had given
    H5414
    to the sun,
    H8121
    at the entering in
    H935
    of the house
    H1004
    of the LORD,
    H3068
    by the chamber
    H3957
    of Nathanmelech
    H5419
    the chamberlain,
    H5631
    which was in the suburbs,
    H6503
    and burned
    H8313
    the chariots
    H4818
    of the sun
    H8121
    with fire.
    H784
  12. 12. And the altars
    H4196
    that were on the top
    H1406
    of the upper chamber
    H5944
    of Ahaz,
    H271
    which the kings
    H4428
    of Judah
    H3063
    had made,
    H6213
    and the altars
    H4196
    which Manasseh
    H4519
    had made
    H6213
    in the two
    H8147
    courts
    H2691
    of the house
    H1004
    of the LORD,
    H3068
    did the king
    H4428
    beat down,
    H5422
    and brake them down
    H7323
    from thence, and cast
    H7993
    the dust
    H6083
    of them into the brook
    H5158
    Kidron.
    H6939
  13. 13. And the high places
    H1116
    that were before
    H6440
    Jerusalem,
    H3389
    which were on the right hand
    H3225
    of the mount
    H2022
    of corruption,
    H4889
    which Solomon
    H8010
    the king
    H4428
    of Israel
    H3478
    had builded
    H1129
    for Ashtoreth
    H6253
    the abomination
    H8251
    of the Zidonians,
    H6722
    and for Chemosh
    H3645
    the abomination
    H8251
    of the Moabites,
    H4124
    and for Milcom
    H4445
    the abomination
    H8441
    of the children
    H1121
    of Ammon,
    H5983
    did the king
    H4428
    defile.
    H2930
  14. 14. And he brake in pieces
    H7665
    the images,
    H4676
    and cut down
    H3772
    the groves,
    H842
    and filled
    H4390
    their places
    H4725
    with the bones
    H6106
    of men.
    H120
  15. 15. Moreover the altar
    H4196
    that was at Bethel,
    H1008
    and the high place
    H1116
    which Jeroboam
    H3379
    the son
    H1121
    of Nebat,
    H5028
    who made Israel
    H3478
    to sin,
    H2398
    had made,
    H6213
    both that altar
    H4196
    and the high place
    H1116
    he brake down,
    H5422
    and burned
    H8313
    the high place,
    H1116
    and stamped
    H1854
    it small to powder,
    H6083
    and burned
    H8313
    the grove.
    H842
  16. 16. And as Josiah
    H2977
    turned
    H6437
    himself, he spied
    H7200
    the sepulchres
    H6913
    that were there in the mount,
    H2022
    and sent,
    H7971
    and took
    H3947
    the bones
    H6106
    out of the sepulchres,
    H6913
    and burned
    H8313
    them upon the altar,
    H4196
    and polluted
    H2930
    it, according to the word
    H1697
    of the LORD
    H3068
    which the man
    H376
    of God
    H430
    proclaimed,
    H7121
    who proclaimed
    H7121
    these words.
    H1697
  17. 17. Then he said,
    H559
    What title
    H6725
    is that
    H1975
    that I see?
    H7200
    And the men
    H582
    of the city
    H5892
    told
    H559
    him, It is the sepulchre
    H6913
    of the man
    H376
    of God,
    H430
    which came
    H935
    from Judah,
    H3063
    and proclaimed
    H7121
    these things
    H1697
    that thou hast done
    H6213
    against the altar
    H4196
    of Bethel.
    H1008
  18. 18. And he said,
    H559
    Let him alone;
    H3240
    let no man
    H376
    move
    H5128
    his bones.
    H6106
    So they let his bones
    H6106
    alone,
    H4422
    with the bones
    H6106
    of the prophet
    H5030
    that came out
    H935
    of Samaria.
    H8111
  19. 19. And all the houses
    H1004
    also of the high places
    H1116
    that were in the cities
    H5892
    of Samaria,
    H8111
    which the kings
    H4428
    of Israel
    H3478
    had made
    H6213
    to provoke the LORD to anger,
    H3707
    Josiah
    H2977
    took away,
    H5493
    and did
    H6213
    to them according to all the acts
    H4639
    that he had done
    H6213
    in Bethel.
    H1008
  20. 20. And he slew
    H2076
    all the priests
    H3548
    of the high places
    H1116
    that were there upon the altars,
    H4196
    and burned
    H8313
    men's
    H120
    bones
    H6106
    upon them, and returned
    H7725
    to Jerusalem.
    H3389
  21. 21. And the king
    H4428
    commanded
    H6680
    all the people,
    H5971
    saying,
    H559
    Keep
    H6213
    the passover
    H6453
    unto the LORD
    H3068
    your God,
    H430
    as it is written
    H3789
    in the book
    H5612
    of this covenant.
    H1285
  22. 22. Surely there was not holden
    H6213
    such a passover
    H6453
    from the days
    H3117
    of the judges
    H8199
    that judged
    H8199
    Israel,
    H3478
    nor in all the days
    H3117
    of the kings
    H4428
    of Israel,
    H3478
    nor of the kings
    H4428
    of Judah;
    H3063
  23. 23. But in the eighteenth
    H6240
    H8083
    year
    H8141
    of king
    H4428
    Josiah,
    H2977
    wherein this passover
    H6453
    was holden
    H6213
    to the LORD
    H3068
    in Jerusalem.
    H3389
  24. 24. Moreover the workers with familiar spirits,
    H178
    and the wizards,
    H3049
    and the images,
    H8655
    and the idols,
    H1544
    and all the abominations
    H8251
    that were spied
    H7200
    in the land
    H776
    of Judah
    H3063
    and in Jerusalem,
    H3389
    did Josiah
    H2977
    put away,
    H1197
    that he might perform
    H6965
    the words
    H1697
    of the law
    H8451
    which were written
    H3789
    in the book
    H5612
    that Hilkiah
    H2518
    the priest
    H3548
    found
    H4672
    in the house
    H1004
    of the LORD.
    H3068
  25. 25. And like unto him was there no king
    H4428
    before
    H6440
    him, that turned
    H7725
    to the LORD
    H3068
    with all his heart,
    H3824
    and with all his soul,
    H5315
    and with all his might,
    H3966
    according to all the law
    H8451
    of Moses;
    H4872
    neither after
    H310
    him arose
    H6965
    there any like him.
  26. 26. Notwithstanding the LORD
    H3068
    turned
    H7725
    not from the fierceness
    H2740
    of his great
    H1419
    wrath,
    H639
    wherewith his anger
    H639
    was kindled
    H2734
    against Judah,
    H3063
    because of all the provocations
    H3708
    that Manasseh
    H4519
    had provoked
    H3707
    him withal.
  27. 27. And the LORD
    H3068
    said,
    H559
    I will remove
    H5493
    Judah
    H3063
    also out of my sight,
    H6440
    as I have removed
    H5493
    Israel,
    H3478
    and will cast off
    H3988
    this city
    H5892
    Jerusalem
    H3389
    which I have chosen,
    H977
    and the house
    H1004
    of which I said,
    H559
    My name
    H8034
    shall be there.
  28. 28. Now the rest
    H3499
    of the acts
    H1697
    of Josiah,
    H2977
    and all that he did,
    H6213
    are they not written
    H3789
    in the book
    H5612
    of the chronicles
    H3117
    of
    H1697
    the kings
    H4428
    of Judah?
    H3063
  29. 29. In his days
    H3117
    Pharaohnechoh
    H6549
    king
    H4428
    of Egypt
    H4714
    went up
    H5927
    against the king
    H4428
    of Assyria
    H804
    to the river
    H5104
    Euphrates:
    H6578
    and king
    H4428
    Josiah
    H2977
    went
    H3212
    against
    H7125
    him; and he slew
    H4191
    him at Megiddo,
    H4023
    when he had seen
    H7200
    him.
  30. 30. And his servants
    H5650
    carried him in a chariot
    H7392
    dead
    H4191
