Bible: 2 Chronicles 28:1-4

Ahaz’s Reign

28:1 Ahaz was twenty years old when he began to reign, and he reigned for sixteen years in Jerusalem. 1  He did not do what pleased the Lord, in contrast to his ancestor David. 2  28:2 He followed in the footsteps of 3  the kings of Israel; he also made images of the Baals. 28:3 He offered sacrifices in the Valley of Ben-Hinnom and passed his sons through the fire, 4  a horrible sin practiced by the nations 5  whom the Lord drove out before the Israelites. 28:4 He offered sacrifices and burned incense on the high places, on the hills, and under every green tree.
