13. Kings: 14. Manasseh 15. Amon
Lesson 13
14. Manasseh 15. Amon
Kings #14 - #15 of Judah
2 Kings 21 & 2 Chronicles 33
14. Manasseh 2 Kings 21:1-18 & 2 Chronicles 33:1-20
Manasseh was 12 years old when he became the king of Judah. His father was Hezekiah and he reigned for 55 years in Jerusalem. He was evil and worshipped idols. He rebuilt the idols that his father Hezekiah had destroyed. He built a lot of idols and practiced various evil abominations and God was angry. He even added a wooden idol in the temple – in the House of God!
God told the prophets that Manasseh was worse than all the Amorites and He was going to bring calamity against Jerusalem and Judah. It would be so bad that the ears would tingle on those that heard about it.
God said that he was going to wipe the people of Jerusalem like a person that wipes a plate clean and turns it over. They will be delivered into the hands of their enemies because of their evil ways.
Manasseh also killed a lot of innocent people which God didn’t approve of. God sent the captains of the army of the King of Assyria to Judah. They captured Manasseh and took him in bronze shackles to Babylon.
During a time when he was sick, he humbled himself to God, prayed and begged with Him. God heard him and Manasseh was taken back to Jerusalem and his kingdom. Finally, Manasseh knew that the Lord was God.
After his captivity, he built a very tall wall outside Jerusalem, on the west side of Gihon, in the valley, as far as the Fish Gate and enclosed Ophel. He put army captains in the fortified cities of Judah.
He took away all the idols and altars that he had built and he repaired the altar of the Lord. He offered peace and thank offerings to God. He commanded the people of Judah to worship the God of Israel. But, some of the people still worshipped idols in the high places.

When Manasseh died, he was buried in the garden of his home and his son Amon became the king.

15. Amon 2 Kings 21:18-26 & 2 Chronicles 33:20-25
Anon was 22 years old when he became the king of Judah. His father was Manasseh and he was the king for 2 years in Jerusalem. He was evil and followed the idols that his father did. He served and worshipped the idols instead of God. He did not humble himself like his father to God but sinned even more.
Amon’s servants conspired against him and killed him in his own house. The people of Judah made his son Josiah the next king.
