2 Kings Chapter 23
1Josiah causeth the book to be read in a solemn assembly. 3He reneweth the covenant between the Lord and the people. 4He destroyeth idolatry in Judah. 15He burneth men's bones upon the altar at Beth-el according to the prophecy, sparing the sepulchre of the prophet who had foretold these things. 19He pulleth down the idolatrous houses in the cities of Samaria, and slayeth the priests. 21He causeth a solemn passover to be kept. 24He putteth away witches and all abominations, and excelleth in piety all kings before and after him. 26God's determined wrath against Judah for Manasseh's provocations. 28Josiah's acts: 29he is slain in a battle with Pharaoh-nechoh; Jehoahaz succeedeth him. 31Jehoahaz after a wicked reign of three months is deposed and imprisoned by Pharaoh-nechoh, who maketh Jehoiakim king, and carrieth Jehoahaz to Egypt. 35Jehoiakim taxeth the land for Pharaoh's tribute. 36His wicked reign.
