King Manasseh of Judea

Sort by:
King Manasseh of Judea: Son of the righteous King Hezekiah. Reigned from 533-478 BCE. Practiced many forms of witchcraft and idolatry and erected idols and pagan altars in the Holy Temple. The prophets, including Isaiah, admonished him and warned that G-d would exile the Judeans for such conduct. The Assyrians captured Manasseh and brought him to Babylon, where he returned to G-d. He was brought back to Jerusalem, where he reigned an additional thirty-three years. Manasseh was succeeded by his son Amon.
