2 And he did what was evil in the sight of the Lord, yaccording to the despicable practices of the nations whom the Lord drove out before the people of Israel. 3 For he rebuilt the high places zthat Hezekiah his father had destroyed, and he erected altars for Baal and made aan Asherah, bas Ahab king of Israel had done, cand worshiped all the host of heaven and served them. 4 dAnd he built altars in the house of the Lord, of which the Lord had said, e“In Jerusalem will I put my name.” 5 And he built altars cfor all the host of heaven in fthe two courts of the house of the Lord. 6 gAnd he burned his son as an offering1 and hused fortune-telling and iomens and dealt jwith mediums and with necromancers. He did much evil in the sight of the Lord, provoking him to anger.
