The Holy Bible - The Second Book of the Chronicles, Chapter 33 (Latin)
1Manasseh was twelve years old when he began to reign, and he reigned fifty and five years in Jerusalem:
2But 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.
3For 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.
4Also he built altars in the house of the LORD, whereof the LORD had said, In Jerusalem shall my name be for ever.
5And he built altars for all the host of heaven in the two courts of the house of the LORD.
6And he caused his children to pass through the fire in the valley of the son of Hinnom: also he observed times, and used enchantments, and used witchcraft, and dealt with a familiar spirit, and with wizards: he wrought much evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger.
7And he set a carved image, the idol which he had made, in the house of God, of which God had said to David and to Solomon his son, In this house, and in Jerusalem, which I have chosen before all the tribes of Israel, will I put my name for ever:
8Neither will I any more remove the foot of Israel from out of the land which I have appointed for your fathers; so that they will take heed to do all that I have commanded them, according to the whole law and the statutes and the ordinances by the hand of Moses.
9So Manasseh made Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem to err, and to do worse than the heathen, whom the LORD had destroyed before the children of Israel.
10And the LORD spake to Manasseh, and to his people: but they would not hearken.
11Wherefore the LORD brought upon them the captains of the host of the king of Assyria, which took Manasseh among the thorns, and bound him with fetters, and carried him to Babylon.
12And when he was in affliction, he besought the LORD his God, and humbled himself greatly before the God of his fathers,
13And prayed unto him: and he was intreated of him, and heard his supplication, and brought him again to Jerusalem into his kingdom. Then Manasseh knew that the LORD he was God.
14Now after this he built a wall without the city of David, on the west side of Gihon, in the valley, even to the entering in at the fish gate, and compassed about Ophel, and raised it up a very great height, and put captains of war in all the fenced cities of Judah.
15And he took away the strange gods, and the idol out of the house of the LORD, and all the altars that he had built in the mount of the house of the LORD, and in Jerusalem, and cast them out of the city.
16And he repaired the altar of the LORD, and sacrificed thereon peace offerings and thank offerings, and commanded Judah to serve the LORD God of Israel.
17Nevertheless the people did sacrifice still in the high places, yet unto the LORD their God only.
18Now the rest of the acts of Manasseh, and his prayer unto his God, and the words of the seers that spake to him in the name of the LORD God of Israel, behold, they are written in the book of the kings of Israel.
19His prayer also, and how God was intreated of him, and all his sins, and his trespass, and the places wherein he built high places, and set up groves and graven images, before he was humbled: behold, they are written among the sayings of the seers.
20So Manasseh slept with his fathers, and they buried him in his own house: and Amon his son reigned in his stead.
21Amon was two and twenty years old when he began to reign, and reigned two years in Jerusalem.
22But he did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD, as did Manasseh his father: for Amon sacrificed unto all the carved images which Manasseh his father had made, and served them;
23And humbled not himself before the LORD, as Manasseh his father had humbled himself; but Amon trespassed more and more.
24And his servants conspired against him, and slew him in his own house.
25But the people of the land slew all them that had conspired against king Amon; and the people of the land made Josiah his son king in his stead.
1duodecim annorum erat Manasses cum regnare coepisset et quinquaginta quinque annis regnavit in Hierusalem
2fecit autem malum coram Domino iuxta abominationes gentium quas subvertit Dominus coram filiis Israhel
3et conversus instauravit excelsa quae demolitus fuerat Ezechias pater eius construxitque aras Baalim et fecit lucos et adoravit omnem militiam caeli et coluit eam
4aedificavit quoque altaria in domo Domini de qua dixerat Dominus in Hierusalem erit nomen meum in aeternum
5aedificavit autem ea cuncto exercitui caeli in duobus atriis domus Domini
6transireque fecit filios suos per ignem in valle Benennon observabat somnia sectabatur auguria maleficis artibus inserviebat habebat secum magos et incantatores multaque mala operatus est coram Domino ut inritaret eum
7sculptile quoque et conflatile signum posuit in domo Domini de qua locutus est Dominus ad David et ad Salomonem filium eius dicens in domo hac et in Hierusalem quam elegi de cunctis tribubus Israhel ponam nomen meum in sempiternum
8et movere non faciam pedem Israhel de terra quam tradidi patribus eorum ita dumtaxat si custodierint facere quae praecepi eis cunctamque legem et caerimonias atque iudicia per manum Mosi
9igitur Manasses seduxit Iudam et habitatores Hierusalem ut facerent malum super omnes gentes quas subverterat Dominus a facie filiorum Israhel
10locutusque est Dominus ad eum et ad populum illius et adtendere noluerunt
11idcirco superinduxit eis principes exercitus regis Assyriorum ceperuntque Manassen et vinctum catenis atque conpedibus duxerunt Babylonem
12qui postquam coangustatus est oravit Dominum Deum suum et egit paenitentiam valde coram Deo patrum suorum
13deprecatusque est eum et obsecravit intente et exaudivit orationem eius reduxitque eum Hierusalem in regnum suum et cognovit Manasses quod Dominus ipse esset Deus
14post haec aedificavit murum extra civitatem David ad occidentem Gion in convalle ab introitu portae Piscium per circuitum usque ad Ophel et exaltavit illum vehementer constituitque principes exercitus in cunctis civitatibus Iuda munitis
15et abstulit deos alienos et simulacrum de domo Domini aras quoque quas fecerat in monte domus Domini et in Hierusalem et proiecit omnia extra urbem
16porro instauravit altare Domini et immolavit super illud victimas et pacifica et laudem praecepitque Iudae ut serviret Domino Deo Israhel
17attamen adhuc populus immolabat in excelsis Domino Deo suo
18reliqua autem gestorum Manasse et obsecratio eius ad Deum suum verba quoque videntium qui loquebantur ad eum in nomine Domini Dei Israhel continentur in sermonibus regum Israhel
19oratio quoque eius et exauditio et cuncta peccata atque contemptus loca etiam in quibus aedificavit excelsa et fecit lucos et statuas antequam ageret paenitentiam scripta sunt in sermonibus Ozai
20dormivit ergo Manasses cum patribus suis et sepelierunt eum in domo sua regnavitque pro eo filius eius Amon
21viginti duo annorum erat Amon cum regnare coepisset et duobus annis regnavit in Hierusalem
22fecitque malum in conspectu Domini sicut fecerat Manasses pater eius et cunctis idolis quae Manasses fuerat fabricatus immolavit atque servivit
23et non est reveritus faciem Domini sicut reveritus est Manasses pater eius et multo maiora deliquit
24cumque coniurassent adversus eum servi sui interfecerunt eum in domo sua
25porro reliqua populi multitudo caesis his qui Amon percusserant constituit regem Iosiam filium eius pro eo
